Hi friends :)
I hope life is good with all of you – nothing crazy going on over here. We’ve been enjoying the quiet of January and getting ready to go to Florida in February. My parents have a place down there, so I am excited for warm weather and to explore Delray, West Palm Beach, and possibly Miami. I hear there are a ton of vegan/plant-based spots, and I’ll surely post about it once I get back. I’m so excited!! If you have any recommendations for me, please don’t hesitate to share in the comments.
Other than that, I thought I would just write a simple post today sharing my usual vegan haul from Trader Joe’s. We go shopping once a week, which has worked for us for years now. It’s one of our favorite things to do together. While I definitely grab some speciality items from TJ’s every once in a while (I mean, they always have new awesome products), we stick to pretty much the basics. I usually come up with some meal ideas beforehand to make sure I grab everything I’ll need for the week.
So, take a look below if you’re interested to see I’m grabbing at the grocery store. I hope it inspires your own shopping list, too!
hi hi hi :)
I’m super excited writing this right now, because I’m very much in a relationship with Trader Joe’s (seriously… what’s up with me and Joes?) Not only do they carry a wide variety of vegan products (or just cool products in general), but they are super affordable and budget-friendly, which is a necessary for us. We try to spend between $60-$80 per week in our household (about $30 or $40 per person for the week). We pack our own lunches, and only eat out on the weekends. It’s been working for us, and I really enjoy our routine.
For anyone who may be skeptic to this whole vegan/vegetarian shopping sitch, I’m here to tell you that the rumors are false. Eating vegan is not expensive, and it is much easier than it seems. So, I put together this list – $50 worth of veg-friendly food from Trader Joe’s that will get you through the week (or longer). I am basing this off of a household of 2, but you can adjust accordingly.
If you’ve been following along for some time, you know that I am in a relationship with Trader Joe’s. I think I say this every time I write a post about them… it’s fine.
There has been so many great vegan products exploding out of TJ’s lately that I had to round-up all of my favorite vegan items. And no, these are not all of them. The best thing about Trader Joe’s is that they continue to revamp and add new items to their stores each month. There is really never a shortage in cool new products, and the best part – like 80% of them are vegetarian or vegan. This store is literally a dream.
As promised, it’s snack time. Trimming down my favorite from 543959 to 10 is going to be a challenge, but it’s one I’m up for.
If you’ve never taken a look at the Trader Joe’s Vegan Product list, you probably should! This is one of the first things I searched for when I started my vegan journey. I was astounded by how well Trader Joe’s caters to vegans – may be one reason why I am obsessed with this place!!
