I definitely have a big sweet tooth, my roomie knows I’m always down for Dominos and cookie dough. (@sunflowersandseersucker lol) But, there are plenty of healthy alternatives to your favourite snacks and treats! I wanted to share some of my favourites.

Roasted Chickpeas Honey-Roasted-Chickpeas-Recipe-2.jpg

These are SO good! Perfect salad topper or snack. Chickpeas are high in fiber and protein to keep you energized. Here is a great recipe you can try!

Trader Joe’s Trip

With back school right around the corner, I took a trip to my local Trader Joe’s to stock up on some healthy snacks and foods for school! IMG_0487.JPG

I couldn’t resist all the beautiful flowers they have!

So here is what I got! All under $30! Which is pretty good if you ask me! Trader Joe’s provides great food for low prices. Products include gourmet foods, organic foods, vegetarian foods, imported foods, and the staples. They love to hear from customers and won’t bring products back if they get a bad review. They always have some great healthy foods I like to stock up on!

Here are some of my favorites!

Creamy Almond Butter

 

 

I’m a HUGE fan of any kind of almond and peanut butter! Really any type of nut butter lol. I normally just stick with peanut butter because of the low cost and convenience of it. But, Trader Joe’s has great almond butter that is under $5! That’s pretty good for almond butter! They have salt and no salt versions!

Organic Vodka Sauce

 

 

 

I love pasta! Who doesn’t? I have it almost every night! Vodka sauce is probably one of my favorite kinds but I’m very picky when it comes to it. Trader Joe’s makes a great one that is organic too!

Raw Shelled Hemp Seeds and Dark Chocolate Cacao Nibs

These are both great for smoothie bowls! I have one almost every morning so these are a must for me! You can either blend in the hemp seeds or put them on top! You can also put them in salads, on top of yogurt or even make hemp milk! I like to blend them and put the cacao nibs on top!

Just Mango Slices

 

 

I love mangos! These dried mango slices taste just like gummy candy! They are perfect for when you are craving something sweet and want to make a healthier choice! Be sure to get the “Unsulfured & Unsweetened” ones, trust me you don’t need to extra sugar!

Organic Pomegranate Hibiscus Kombucha

 

 

One of my new favorite drinks, Kombucha! A fermented black tea beverage, filled with tons of probiotics! They come in so many great flavors! My favorite are mango and pomegranate!

What are your favorite Trader Joe’s snacks?
