We are taking you into Trader Joe’s (4600 Shelbyville Road), a small, nationwide grocery store that’s fun to shop in and easy to navigate. Here are two ideas for nutritious, easy-to-prepare snacks that are perfect for one or two people.
Trader Joe’s Organic Yellow Corn Tortilla Chips are a perfect snack paired with their Reduced Guilt Chunky Guacamole (above). This flavorful dip is rich and creamy and loaded with healthful avocados. Use this dip on sandwiches or place a dollop on top of chili, refried beans, or tortilla soup. Find the dip in the first aisle just below the Ferguson Mansion mural and the chips in the last aisle.
We love these! Sea Salt and Turbinado Sugar Dark Chocolate Almonds are the perfect ending to any meal. They’re a great balance of salty-sweetness with a dark chocolate coating and almond nut crunch. Eat them on their own or add to ice cream or yogurt. Find them in the third aisle on the shelf above the frozen desserts.
