What are some of your favorite items from there?
I'm going a little later today and I have no clue what to get.

They have a brown medley rice blend that is SUPER SUPER good cooked normally in a rice cooker with fresh ginger and minced cilantro.

The "Trader Joe's Unsweetened Green Tea" is BOMB. Though, I have to admit I add water to make it less strong because straight out of the bottle, it's definitely a mouthful. But yeah, it's awesome. Boosted my energy without giving me calories and tastes awesome too!

I love their steamed lentils. In the refrigerated section by the cheese, pre-made salads, and such. Soooo easy to prepare and delicous!

Their "Savory Thin Mini Rice Crackers- Multiseed W/ Soy Sauce" .

Very tasty little rice crackers. Almost taste meaty.

Only 110 calories for 35 crackers (they're tiny).

Salt content not too bad and zero cholesterol.

I mix them with raw almonds and roasted sunflower seeds (without shells) to make a kind of trail mix.

Which reminds me, I need to go get some more.

OMFG I love this store.

Haricots verts -- thin french greenbeans, prewashed. Delish steamed, raw, dipped in hummus or salsa, great in wraps and salads

Artichoke hearts - canned, 50cals for half a cup, great on salad and in roasted veggie dishes, even veg. lasagna

Roasted peppers - jarred, great on pizza, in soup, salads

Freeze Dried strawberries - eat in cereal, yogurt, right from the bag. Super sweet and yummy!

Reduced fat cheddar cheese - low in cals, satisfies a cheese craving, good way to eat what the family is eating while keeping fat content low

Organic milk cheaper than anywhere else

They have hummus that is 35 cals for TWO tablespoons! I think the roasted red pepper, but also the quads of hummus.
