12 New Trader Joe’s Finds That You Need To Know About Now!

You know how when you walk into somewhere and you immediately feel at ease?! Is it strange that I feel that way when I walk into Trader Joe’s?! Because I really do. It’s my happy place!! And if it’s your happy place too, then you’ve come to the right blog post! Today is all about my favorite new TJ finds that my fambam and I have been LOVING on lately! Let’s check out the goods…

1. Everything but the Bagel Greek Style Yogurt Dip

Whoa, this dip is mind-blowing, delicious and the first time I put it in my mouth, I was like – whyyyyy didn’t I think of this first?! Genius!! I’m obsessed with dipping my favorite Trader Joe’s raw rainbow carrots in it but I also envision spreading it atop salmon, baking said salmon in the oven at 425 degrees for 17-20 minutes and the flavors exploding in my mouth!!! No no, I haven’t tried it yet but as soon as I do, you will be the first to know! Be on the lookout via my Instagram stories!

2. Micellar Cleanser & Makeup Remover Towelettes

I’m about to hit you with a truth bomb – I am the laziest when it comes to taking off my makeup at night. So lazy, in fact, that I just don’t do it. {don’t judge!!} However, after a night out on the town, I HAVE to take my eye makeup off before bed. For years I’ve been using Micellar Water to do it but when I saw these wipes, the lazy girl in me wanted to throw a party!!!!! Hahahah!

You mean, I can just take the wipe out of the packaging and it’s ready to use immediately?!! I don’t have to take out a cotton pad, and pour the micellar water on myself?! WHOA BABY – I was sold on the spot!!! After using them for over a week now, I’m a convert + I end up wiping the towel on my whole face so now I can actually say that I’m taking off my makeup at night! Huge thanks to Trader Joe’s!!!

3. Everything but the Elote Seasoning Blend

WHOA FLAVOR! This seasoning is a game changer! Typically, when I make corn on the cob, I make it like THIS but the other night, instead of putting garlic powder on it, I used this new gem. The corn turned out YUM, and that says a lot coming from someone who doesn’t love spicy food! My advice: get it!

4. Organic Sparkling Apple Cider Drinking Vinegar Cucumber & Mint Beverage

Ok, so this is my new fave fave fave! You already know that I’m doing Faster Way to Fat Loss and when I’m intermittent fasting, this is the perfect drink to hold me over until I can eat again! The bottle is not super little and the whole thing is 30 calories, with no fiber, which means it’s safe to have during a fasting period. It’s crazy filling and actually tastes good! Apple cider vinegar comes with TONS of health benefits like killing off many types of harmful bacteria, lowers blood sugar levels and fights diabetes, plus MORE! This also comes in a Strawberry Basil flavor which I just tried for the first time and is delicious as well!

5. Gluten Free + Quick Cook Brown Rice & Quinoa Pasta – Mini Elbows

If you’ve been following me for a while, you know that I have a gluten allergy. What you might not know is that I also have a tapioca allergy. Tapioca is wayyyy harder to avoid than gluten is because tapioca flour is a substitute for regular flour and it’s in almost every gluten-free processed food. Ugh for me!!! Anyways! Most items that are labeled gluten-free, especially at TJs, unfortunately have tapioca and I can’t eat them. However, I can eat these gluten-free noodles anddddd they are quick-cook which OMG THIS SPEAKS TO ME!!!

If you get them, my advice is to cook them for truly no more than a minute and half or they’ll turn mushy. I’ve realized with Trader Joe’s that sometimes you have to tweak the directions to make it work better for you and this is definitely one of those situations. I topped mine with pesto and parm and it was a yummy little dinner!

6. Kale Gnocchi

OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG!!! Yes, these kale gnocchi are worth that many OMGs because they are freaking amazing. Again, this is another one of Trader Joe’s new gluten-free finds that don’t contain tapioca and I couldn’t be more thrilled. I haven’t tried making them yet according to the directions because I’ve been whipping them up in my air-fryer and they turn out AMAZING. I cook them in the air-fryer at 400 degrees for 12-13 minutes, flipping them halfway through. Top with marinara, pesto, butter, parm, add in sautéed vegetables {or don’t!} and you have yourself pure PERFECTION!

7. Organic Coconut Water &
8. Organic Coconut Smoothie

I’ve been drinking TJ’s organic coconut water ever since I saw it on the shelves for the first time and I am a huge fan! It’s actually my favorite coconut water I’ve ever had, as the flavor profile is seriously vibrant and strong, in the best way possible. I bought the organic coconut smoothie the last time I was there on a whim because I hadn’t seen it before. While I prefer the water to the smoothie, the smoothie packs more of a filling punch, which sometimes is exactly what I’m looking for! Basically, if you love coconut as much as I do, try these drinks asap!

9. Crunchy Salted Peanut Butter with Ground Flax & Chia Seeds

Don’t even get me started on this!!!!! I’ve been eating it by the spoonful at night and it leaves me so satisfied before bed. I like that the serving size is two tablespoons, as opposed to one, and the addition of flax and chia seeds is a game changer! Basically, it’s peanut butter packed with all the good stuff! You should know that it can get runny because of the PB oils but I personally don’t mind it. SO MUCH YES!

10. Turmeric Ginger Coconut Beverage

If you follow me on the ‘gram, you know that lately I’ve been completely addicted to drinking this Turmeric Ginger Coconut Beverage. Which, you guys, is MILK! Weird that they just don’t call it that but I’m here to set the record straight, it’s turmeric ginger coconut milk and it is freaking delicious! I’ve used it in my coffee, I made chia seed pudding with it, but my favorite way to have it is to pour it in a cup and drink it solo! It’s definitely the best when it stands alone and I’ve found myself reaching for it on a daily basis! Mmmmm.

11. Fresh Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

These fresh mozzarella sticks are my kids new favorite string cheese substitute! They love them! And so do I!! Just a thought, but they would even make a great cheeseboard addition. Pick them up the next time you can… you won’t be disappointed!

12. Gummi Vites for Kids

Something that I have been diligent about is giving my kids daily vitamins. These ones are great because they’re easy-to-digest gummy bears, they taste good {yep, I tried one myself LOL!}, and they are cheap! Not to mention, they’re for all ages so both boys can get the benefits of them! We call them “special gummies” and the boys get SO pumped to eat them everyday after dinner!
