Sharing some of my favorite products at TJ's (as of September 2019)

Pastas & rice

Organic yellow & brown rice pasta - $2.99 - MY ALL TIME FAVORITE

Organic red lentil sedanini $2.99 - needs to be cooked a lot longer than what the label says, about 25-30 minutes

Organic black bean rotini $2.99 - don't overcook because this one gets mushy and makes water starchy

Sprouted Organic California rice blend - favorite rice blend

Lentils

Red split (uncooked) $1.69 - they cook very quick, great for soups, stews or a quick side dish

Steamed lentils (cooked) $2.99 ready to go

Wild, Uncooked Argentine Red Shrimp - $9.99

Love this shrimp. It's already peeled, deveined and super yummy. One package gives me two dinners (for 2).

Snacks

Oven-baked cheese bites $2.79

CHOMPS turkey and beef sticks $1.79

Masala Simmer Sauce $2.69

I've used this sauce many times to make chicken masala for guests. It's a crowd pleaser plus it's super yummy and so easy. Sautee garlic and chopped onions on a pan with very little oil for 5-10 minutes. Add cubed chicken breast. Sautee for 2 minutes on each side, then add the sauce. Bring to boil, then simmer for about 5 minutes. Serve with a dollop fo greek yogurt & naan bread.

Organic Popping Corn - $2.29

I'm totally obsessed with making homemade (no-oil) popcorn with this corn. One bag yields 14 servings (when using 1/4 cup each time).

Raw Oregon Hazelnuts - $7.99

This was my dessert for the most part when I went gluten-free for a month. These go perfectly with wine, they taste sweet to me, and they are just delicious. Just make sure to use a measuring cup as they are very calorie dense.

Guacamole

Chunky spicy $2.99 - if you like spicy, this guac is the bomb

Avocado's number guacamole to go $3.99 for a sick pack - I eat this every day spread on Wasa crackers with eggs, spinach and everything but the bagel seasoning

Salsa

Fall harvest salsa $2.99 - my all time favorite, available only in the fall

Cowboy caviar $2.99 - great as a taco topping, on the spicier side

Organic coconut aminos $2.99 - alternative to Soy Sauce. Paleo-approved and gluten-free.

Peeled Garlic - $1.99

I always have this in my fridge because more often than not I don't feel like peeling garlic so this is what I use.

Dark chocolate covered strawberries and bananas $3.99

These are amazing for dessert!!! Strawberries are great, haven't tried bananas but I hear they are great too.

Organic Creamy, No Salt, Peanut Butter - $3.49

Can't beat the price and quality of this PB. It's really smooth and tastes sweet to me. Love it with apples and cinnamon.
