Trader Joe’s Clean Eating Grocery Guide

I can’t pretend I am an expert in clean-eating. I’m still doing my research and I have had my fair share of recipe experimentation successes (and fails!). This blog is all about my journey towards a healthier lifestyle and I’ll post what I have discovered works (and doesn’t work) for me and I hope that you will find it useful too!

IMG_4183Planning ahead for grocery shopping has played a key role in making better healthy choices. I spend a ton of time on Pinterest and other health blogs looking up new recipes before I shop so I know what type of things I will be able to make. When I’m at school I generally either shop at Wegmans or Trader Joe’s. I’m the type of person that could spend hours at a grocery store, just ask Lewis. Making a list ahead of time really keeps me focused and I have less of a chance of being distracted/tempted by the bakery section or a new brand of cookies. My list tends to be pretty much the same week after week and so far it’s been working for me! I find that with these ingredients always in stock the recipe options are endless. These ingredients can be combined in so many ways to make amazing salads, Buddha bowls, smoothies, egg scrambles and soups. For the most part I try to buy the organic version of each ingredient.

Hi! I'm Katie. I’m happiest when I’m exploring new places, lying on the beach or eating fresh foods (and if that were all to happen at once, I’d be set!).
