A smorgasbord of Vegetarian Delights


Trader Joe's grocery chain has made a name for itself with a wide variety of foods packaged under their own label. They carry the traditional staples, as well as specialty items you won't see at run-of-the-mill grocers. Best of all, and most products have with substantially LOWER PRICES than your friendly Co-op or health-food store!

There's a lot here for vegetarians to pick from: an unbelievable selection of whole wheat bread products (sandwich breads, pitas, English muffins, naan, Veggie hot dog buns, etc., etc., etc.); a wide variety of ready-to-eat foods (packaged lettuce, cut veggies, veggie sandwiches, dolmas, olives, fresh salsas, Veggie dips and sandwich spreads, innumerable types of hummus, etc., etc., etc.); amazing and inexpensive frozen fruit and vegetable choices; Veggie burgers; frozen Veggie dinners; Veggie pizzas; an incredible array of reasonably-priced dried fruits and nuts; Veggie snacks and dips; whole-grain pasta products, rice, canned goods; soy and rice milks; health and beauty products; supplements; non-irradiated spices; a good supply of fresh produce; beer and wine, and more!

I don't know what I'd do sometimes without my TJ's. Sooo many amazing veggie options, quick meal ideas, nice selection of deli items, assortment of frozen entries, faux meats, etc. When we had a frost and eggplant was nowhere to be found, TJ's still carried their frozen breaded eggplant cutlets to save my dinner. (Whew!) Their frozen chile rellano is really delicious and surprisingly rates well in WW points. I do warn those watching their weight to avoid the hummus wrap though. It is laden with fat & carbs unfortunately. I love buying my cheese from TJ's too as they make a concerted effort to identify when rennet is animal, microbial, or vegetable. VERY friendly staff. Small store but it keeps the prices down. (Don't shop on a Saturday! Yikes!) Bring your own bags to enter their weekly drawing. Anyone can find something fabulous at TJ's.
