DC is still a flutter from the new Trader Joe’s that opened last spring–on Monday night (Monday!) the line wrapped around the entire.damn.store. As in– through every aisle. It was wild. Anyway, while I still think most of their produce is really crappy, there are several products I think are just terrific. Here are five of ’em:
1. Curry Simmer Sauce
I could buy 5 jars of this a week and still want more. Usually I mix half a jar of simmer sauce with half a can of coconut milk and throw it over a bunch of cauliflower and/or broccoli. Simmer for 35 minutes or so et voila! Dinner is served. There aren’t all that many pre-made sauces out there that don’t have sugar in ’em, so TJ gets a gold star for this one that is sugar free AND delicious.
2. All this Coconut Water for $2.49
3. Cruciferous Crunch Collection
4. Tahini Sauce
5. Mamby Pamby Baking Supplies at a Cheaper Price
Gluten-free all-purpose flour, palm sugar, coconut oil, even carob–Trader Joe’s has busted into the clean baking market and broke it wide open. Definitely the lowest prices I’ve seen for all of the above!
I don’t always buy Solid Gold Ish but when I do… they don’t make it out of the grocery store.
