Cinco de Mayo Run and Trader Joe’s Finds.

Happy Cinco de Mayo! I enjoyed a runrise this morning to the tune of 7 miles. Temps were not too bad…60 something degrees with a nice breeze going.


I’ve got some fun Trader Joe’s finds on this lovely Tuesday! I don’t get to go to TJ’s very often (it’s about a 20 minute drive from my house, but a little closer to work) so when I do, it’s like going to Disney World! Haha. Here’s what I bought on my most recent trip.


-Cilantro Jalapeño Hummus. Man oh man, this is some good stuff. Zesty and just the perfect amount of spice! Plus, cilantro anything just makes my heart happy.


-Cruciferous Crunch. Kale, brussels sprouts, and broccoli mix, oh my! Good stuff mixed with a little olive oil, lemon, and feta.


-Heirloom Tomatoes. These babies are super good for a quick snack! I love all of the different color tomatoes. They are the perfect mix of a little sweet and tart.


-Feta Cheese Spread. Yep, it’s just as dangerous as it sounds. Great for a party!


-Fresh basil. Nope…you can’t go wrong with 2.99.


-Flowers! Because…why not. Treat yoself.


-And…it just would not make sense if I did not bring up the 2 buck chuck. This vino is where it’s at.


I just bought the Nouveau red wine and it’s a nice bold red with a smooth kick at the end. Love it.

Do you have a Trader Joe’s nearby? Have you discovered any new finds?

  1. I guess I’m lucky – I have a Trader Joe’s less than 5 minutes from my house. I definitely get staples there – like their Greek Yogurt Guac (yum!), fresh produce and oats. I need to try that Feta Dip. It looks delicious and dangerous – like you said 🙂

  2. We just got one recently. Last week I discovered honey-sesame cashews (think cashes coated in honey and dipped in sesame seeds). They are like crack! I simply cannot buy them again.

  3. Love me some TJ’s. Yes, I have one next door to my office — so great but so bad for my pockets. HAHA. That one does not have a liquor license though so no three buck chucks. I also have one near my house, and that one does have a liquor license! 🙂

    Great run this morning. AS USUAL!!!!

  4. i didn’t mind making the drive into town to hit up Trader Joes but we are FINALLY getting one like 5 min away from me this Summerrrrrr!!!! so excited. you picked up some good stuff!

  5. love Trader Joe’s, but i hardly go here in NYC. i really should go more, esp to the wine store! i wish there was one in my neighborhood. good finds — that hummus looks awesome, girl. nice job on the run! wish we could run together!

  6. We have a Trader Joes about 1 mile away from our house. i just don’t think to shop there. We are on a pretty strict budget right now, so we have to go as cheap as possible. Id love to be able to shop there though.
