    Trader Joe's sprouted 7-grain bread is the BEST! Like Ezekiel but not as dense, smaller slices mean I get two on my plan! 7c per slice and 5g protein! How can you beat that? Soooo yummy. :thumb:

    And their chocolate chip meringues are my new favorite PWO meal!

    What's your favorite TJ find?

    I am SOOO with you on Trader Joe's! I go through phases but they have so many items that are so healthful and convenient. Honest I don't know where to begin as they are all my favorites. They have these pre-cooked lentils and fava beans that are really good with a touch of EVOO :), my current fav is their packaged frozen artichoke hearts, but I also love their frozen steel-cooked oatmeal (bricks! LOL!), all their teas! (chocolate mint was to die for :)). Sigh! I used to love cat cookies but those really aren't "figure-friendly." LOL sorry bad pun!

    I love TJs!!
    Their pre-cut sweet taters are awesome- all you need to do is spice them up (savory with garlic-herb seasoning or sweet with cinnamon), throw them in the oven and roast them. :yum:
    The bagged baby zucchinis are so good sliced lengthwise, drizzled with balsamic vinegar and roasted.
    I also love their chicken breast- always comes out moist; and their steak.
    The unsalted dry-roasted almonds are always fresh.
    The mango-blueberry-cranberry bran muffins are perfect PWO.
    The roasted garlic salsa is chunky and flavorful.
    And for a cheat, the chocolate chip-loaded mini bundt cakes are incredible! :drool: :drool:

    I love TJs!
    TJ's price on liquid egg white is much less than my supermarket and same price as my BJs and Sams club where I need to buy 6 containers at a time.
    Love the:
    Frozen sliced red, yellow, & green peppers for stir "fry".
    Frozen french green beans.
    Ditto sprouted grain and Ezekial bread.
    I buy the Low Fat "cat cookies" for a treat for my kdg. class.
    Hubby likes there frozen artichoke hearts and frozen juice pops. And the Red Pepper spread - yum! It is great on turkey sandwiches instead of mayo.

    :tantrum: why can't we have one. I went in there once when we live in AZ and was poor so never really shopped there.
