If you’re like us, you love Trader Joe’s.

Time is a limited resource, and if we aren’t careful, we can be tempted to skip meals, grab fast food, or dodge hunger by relying on junky snacks. The impact of such food choices goes further than our waist line, it impacts our productivity at work, our temper with friends and family, our performance during workouts. In a perfect world, we would always be making healthy meals and snacks from scratch. But that isn’t always realistic.

Sometimes, we need the help of convenient options. Luckily, Trader Joe’s has a lot of great options. Here are some of our favorite staples, snacks and pre-made salads. We hope you try some of these healthy items out and love them as much as we do!
