Happy Monday friends! Typically, I do my grocery shopping on Sunday’s and for the most part, I shop only at Trader Joe’s. This post is solely about Trader Joe’s products so if you don’t do your grocery shopping there, maybe this will inspire you to take a trip!
In true Katie fashion, I need to call myself out for a second. I posted an Instagram story asking for my followers’ favorite Trader Joe’s items back in the BEGINNING of February and I’m JUST getting around to consolidating and posting this. I apologize for the delay!! The bright side is I have been able to try some of the recommendations I received. I decided the best way to do this is to break it out into sections. I am not including a fruit section because honestly all their fruit is so good, fresh and cheap! For any that were recommended that I tried and liked I will put an asterisk (I did not try all of them!!). I will also include “Katie’s Picks” in each category which are ones that weren’t already recommended by someone else that are my personal faves. Hopefully this will make your next Trader Joe’s haul easy!
Katie’s Pick: Shredded Cabbage and Carrots–great as a base for bang, bang shrimp or with lime juice to make a taco topping!

-Sour Cream (apparently it’s better than Daisy)
