Clean Eats | Trader Joe's Haul

Hi Beauties!!

I recently bought a bunch of new items to try at Trader Joe's and figured I should make a Food Haul out of it. It has been a couple weeks since my haul and I had a chance to try everything out and figure out what I liked and didn't like. Check out my haul video as well as my thoughts on each item below!

Feedback On Items I Purchased:

Chickenless Chicken Tenders -- As I mentioned, I LOVE these chickenless tenders and they really do taste just like chicken. Even texture wise. I prepare them every week and usually eat them

Chicken Fried Rice -- I was actually really surprised at how delicious this was. The ONLY think I didn't like about it is that there were eggs in it (which I thought I read the ingredients in the store to make sure there wasn't), so for that reason only I wouldn't repurchase.

Vegetable Fried Rice -- Good but wouldn't repurchase again because of the eggs.

Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons -- OH EM GEE. Does that capture it all? Insta-staple snack. So good.

Shrimp Stir Fry-- I combined this with one of the quinoa blends. Really good and have repurchased since.

Quinoa Duo With Vegetable Melange

Multigrain Blend With Vegetables

Organic Superfood Pilaf -- LOVED this.

Also, I mentioned in the video how I had to stop eating quinoa (as in buying it from the store and cooking it from scratch) due to constant stomach irritations. Once I realized that the quinoa was causing my stomach issues I did a quick search online to see if there was anything in quinoa that causes stomach/digestive issues and found out about the naturally occurring substance known as saponin. You can read more about it here.

What are you Trader Joe's Favs?? Have you tried any of these items? Let me know in the comment section!
