Joe is such a Trader!

Lately, I have read a lot of nasty talk on various blogs about shopping at Trader Joe's.  It's not the bloggers themselves, but the sister-better-than-yous that leave comments on those blogs.  It is a store people.  Of course not all of the food there is going to be healthy.  It's not Trader Joe's Health Emporium!  And by the way, not everyone is striving for 100% healthy all the time!

That said, there is plenty of good stuff there, if you are willing to look for it.  Where else can you get a butternut squash for $1.19 or a huge stalk of Brussels sprouts for $3.19?  Some of my favorite picks at Trader Joe's are in season produce, grass fed beef, nuts and dried fruits, cheeses (full-fat please), and lets don't forget wine.

So here is what I got today at Trader Joe's!

That would be two boxes of beef broth because I have been too lazy to make it from scratch, a bottle of tempranillo (my favorite wine right now), a bottle of chardonnay (my go to cooking wine), a bag of white raisins, a bag of cranberries, a jar of coconut oil, a bottle of unfiltered apple cider vinegar, a container of mushrooms, a container of blueberries, a bunch of bananas, and a nice hunk of brie (wish I had had this for the turkey quesadillas earlier in the week).  Let's not forget the fearless flyer in the background!  I love these, and especially around the Holidays, they have some great tips in them, and are just a funny read for a few moments of decompression.

Did you hit your local Trader Joe's this week?  What are your can't live without Trader Joe's products?
