Afresh Options for Meals and Snacks

Families, single moms, roomie ladies, and frat boys have come to know Trader Joe’s as a perfect go-to for health conscious grocery shopping.  The quantities are great and there are many grab and go options.  Also, the stores tactical marketing; think little store feel, specialty items, and cheery employees get consumers coming back for more.

I am always on the look -out for new/clean foods to eat for meals and snacks. The foods below are great add-ons to people looking for some new and nutritious options.

Organic Tuscan Kale—think salads and kale chips!

Coconut Oil—-for sautéing veggies and cooking potatoes
