Hello + welcome to this tiny space on the internet! I created this blog (+ changed the name twice since) 14 years ago as a creative outlet from my career in the emergency room as a PA. After spending the past 7 (or so) years on social media outlets, I have decided to delete all of the ones associated with this blog and get back to the heart of blogging.
I promised this Trader Joe’s Meal Plan Ideas post a few weeks (maybe months) ago! I also included a printable shopping list so that you can make your life just a tiny bit easier. I know how hard it is to get to the grocery store with or without little ones so I hope this helps! There really is nothing I dread more than a day out to the grocery store. Our nearest Trader Joe’s is about 40 minutes away and it takes up an entire morning to just grab groceries and go home. The worst part is that I frequently forget 22880 things and need to go back the very next day. I swear that grocery shopping is equivalent to a drunken night out. You barely remember anything that happens when you’re walking through the damn store and you end up coming home with some special edition sparkle cereal and yummy fruit pops instead of something that can actually make a healthy meal. Thanks to so many of you on my Instagram stories for telling me about your favorite items and meals from Trader Joe’s! I’ve tried every single one of these meals and I can attest to their deliciousness.

This is one of my favorite ways to start off the day. For breakfast, a little yogurt with probiotics, fruit and peanut butter protein granola! This granola is seriously the most amazing granola in the world. I promise you’ll be addicted. Many of you have asked about the daily harvest smoothies. I love them but I only order about 6 of them every two weeks since I feel like I don’t need them more often than that, plus they are a bit pricey! My favorite combination is the strawberry/banana with the oats.
