First Trip to Trader Joe's Suggestions . . . ??

I will be going to Trader Joe's for the first time anything special I should look for? I have seen so many great things posted & can't remember all of them.

I love Trader Joe's Simply lite dark chocolate and almond bars---about a gram a square and one or two squares does it for me. Also they have a good selection of Hanson's Diet soda---without aspertame. I use these to make a cream soda every night. I've been wanting to try their cooked prime rib or tenderloin, it's usually near the cheeses. You can buy a hunk of it for a couple dinners, or slice it in strips for salads. I'm told it's delicious, and all you have to do is warm it up.

Tonight I had the Pork Roast Florentine (marinated pork filled with spinach, cheese, and roasted peppers). It is found in the frozen foods sections and has 4 carbs per serving. It was delicious and filling and has 28 g of protein per serving!

They have an excellent pre-made stuffed chicken breast, the name of it escapes me right now. It is a little expensive, they come in two for about $12. They are pretty big so we split one. In fresh meat section. I love them because they are low carb but tastes like a carb stuffing.

They have the best prices on coconut oil, love the dark chocolate. Huge variety of nuts. I also like the kobe beef burgers and mahi mahi patties in the frozen food section.

They were the first to come out with chopped pre-washed kale, easy to make kale chips. I have now found them in local stores, but I am in a big city, so grab them. They have a wonderful blue cheese/pecans spread in the dip/cheese section.

Happy Hunting
