Trader Joe’s Treasures

If you are working long hours sometimes you get hungry.  If you’re watching tv, sometimes you’re mind wanders to food.  Boredom can also  bring on the ravenous feelings.  Whatever the case, instead of reaching for a bag of salty garlic-onion chips look for a healthier substitute.

You can still eat chips but there are alternatives to the usual bag of greasy spuds.  A few that I have tried that I enjoy are:

Trader Joe’s Inner Peas They’re baked not fried.  The green pods are also crunchy, tasty and haves 230mg of Potassium.  Only problem is they are addicting.  These are pretty cheap.  Between $1.49-$1.99 for a 3.3 ounce bag.

Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Covered Powerberries These are a bit pricey, about $3.49 for an 8oz bag.  They are delicious and contain at least 30% vitamin C but they also have 24grams of sugar for every 1/4cup.

Still have junk food craving?  Maybe you want some cheese?  Trader Joe’s White Cheddar Corn Puffs give you the most for your money.  These $1.99 for a 7oz bag and only 140 calories.

Trader Joe’s movie theater popcorn is probably better than the popcorn at actual theaters and at $1.99 much easier on the wallet.

Give it a try if you have a Trader Joes near you or you can purchase them on Amazon but for a higher price.  They’re definitely not as heavy as other snacks allowing you to cheat a little more without upsetting your tummy.
