reviving this thread 'cause I was curious what people think about Trader Joe's D3, then I started thinking about TJ's, then I was curious what other people are buying there... I was giggling and shaking my head - "too true" - when someone said they have to shop like 5 different places to get everything...
so here's what I buy at Trader Joes:
Grass Fed 85/15 ground beef
Uncured Bacon ends (sometimes these are better than others)
All Natural Chicken Sausages (vacuum packed, fully cooked - good for emergency protein)
Omega 3 Cage-Free eggs
Cheese (raw NZ cheddar, goat cheese, etc.)
Heavy Cream (no additives)
full fat yogurt (greek and/or european style)
Kerrygold Butter (usually a 3:1 unsalted to salted purchase ratio)
Tomatoes (kumato, vine, plum)
Avocados (bag of 4)
Baby Arugula/Baby Spinach/Kale/Spring Mix
Veggies to eat immediately (we've noticed they don't keep as well as we'd like)
Bananas/Oranges/Apples/other fresh fruit
Frozen Berries/other fruit
Unsweetened Cranberry (not from concentrate) Juice
Light Coconut milk (full fat has JUNK in it)
Vinegars (ACV, balsamic, etc.)
Condiments:mustard, hot sauce, salsas, tapenades
Raw Nuts & Seeds
Dried Unsweetened/No Additive fruits.
Fruit Leather (pureed fruit, no sweeteners or additives) ends
Frozen Wild fish
Smoked wild salmon
LaraBars & Raw food bars
Vitamins (does anyone know about the quality of their vitamins? I'm curious)
Frozen Sweet Potato Puree (ingredients: sweet potato)
$2.99 wine if I go to the location next to the wine store
Lots of non-foodstuffs - dish soap, TP, paper towels, toothpaste, dr. bronners, deodorant.
Also a large variety of not-so-primal goodies for my sweetie (sprouted bread, seasnax, hashbrowns, big bag of chips, cookies, ice cream, microwave enchiladas, basmati and wild rice, unsweetened mayo, etc.), which are better than your average supermarket fare.
Trader Joe's does have Kerrygold (well, usually), grass-fed ground beef, and grass-fed cheeses. All pretty dang good.
Also, their coconut oil is pretty good and it's organic. They have some good coconut milk brands as well.
They have one of the best vitamin D3 supplements I've ever encountered. It uses olive oil, NOT soy, corn, or canola. Beyond that, it's just a softgel capsule.
"The cling and a clang is the metal in my head when I walk. I hear a sort of, this tinging noise - cling clang. The cling clang. So many things happen while walking. The metal in my head clangs and clings as I walk - freaks my balance out. So the natural thought is just clogged up. Totally clogged up. So we need to unplug these dams, and make the the natural flow... It sort of freaks me out. We need to unplug the dams. You cannot stop the natural flow of thought with a cling and a clang..."
