Being health-conscious can be a real bore — unless you’re shopping at TJ’s. You’ll find hearty protein, gluten/dairy alternatives, fresh produce, and more. TJ’s products skimp out on the bad stuff without sacrificing flavor. Just see for yourself.

Everything But The Bagel Seasoned Smoked Salmon

At 80 calories per serving, this savory seasoned salmon packs 11 grams of protein and 25% of the recommended daily dose of vitamin D. Fix it up with a salad or scrambled eggs for breakfast.

Cauliflower Pizza Crusts

If you’re gluten-free or watching your carb intake, cauliflower crusts are a tasty yet healthy alternative. It’s much lighter than traditional pizza crust, so you aren’t left feeling stuffed to the max afterward.

Southwestern Chopped Salad Mix

This is a favorite of mine. I sometimes add salmon or ground turkey (with taco seasoning) for a bit of protein. The kit includes greens as well as pepitas, tortilla strips, cotija cheese, and avocado dressing.

Oat Non-Dairy Frozen Dessert Sandwiches

Life’s all about balance, and these dairy-free ice cream sandwiches will curb your sweet toothing craving without putting you in a sugar coma.

Almond Butter Chia Overnight Oats

Grab-and-go breakfast can be richer than a banana and healthier than a pack of donuts. TJ’s gluten-free, sweet and savory overnight oats are a great source of fiber and protein.

Riced Cauliflower

Similar in texture to couscous, the riced cauliflower is unseasoned, so it acts as a substitute for rice or pasta in essentially any dish. It’s much healthier at just 25 calories and 4 grams of carbs per 2/3 cup serving.

Vegan Ranch Crunch Salad Kit

TJ’s Vegan Ranch Crunch Salad Kit is a great starting base for a hearty salad. I sometimes throw in chicken or salmon, but you can also add tofu or tuna. It comes with a soy-based ranch dressing.

Broccoli & Kale Slaw

Whether your salad needs an extra “oomph” or your food is lacking in greens, TJ’s Broccoli & Kale Slaw can spruce up your meal in a flash. Plus, it’s low in saturated fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

Egg Bites: Cheese, Spinach & Kale

These protein-heavy egg bites are ready to eat in 60 seconds. You can enjoy them as is or if you dare, add a kick of hot sauce for a fiery breakfast hack.

Trader Joe's

Steamed Lentils

Tacos, salads, burrito bowls, stuffed peppers, curry, stew, there are so many lentil recipes out there to try. The best party? TJ’s Steam Lentils will cut your prep and cook time in half because they’re already prepared!
