Thanks to Trader Joe’s

by Cait on September 29, 2011

Despite having most everything packed away – and literally have next to no food in the house, I managed to have a pretty delicious dinner tonight!

Thanks, in large part once again, to Trader Joe’s!

I threw some Trader Joe’s falafels over some Trader Joe’s baby romaine…

Added the last piece of Trader Joe’s whole wheat naan (cut up to maximize my time with it!)

And scooped out some Trader Joe’s hummus…

All drizzled with some olive oil and sprinkled with salt!

SO good.  Seriously.  This meal hit the spot.

And now that my belly is happily full, I’m off to digest/catch up on The Biggest Loser (finally) and then do some yoga!!  I NEED it!

Night everyone!

Gotta say, looks like a great dinner in my book. I’m just jealous we don’t have a TJs here :-(

I wish you did!! TJs is literally like my favorite place on earth. No exaggeration.

That looks perfect. I think you should tell TJ’s to make it’s way out to Colorado just for me. :-) Glad you have everything packed!

I think you’re right – I will put that on my to-do list for tomorrow :)

I almost feel like there should be a “brought to you by Trader Joe’s” message ending this post :)

Hahaha – there probably should be. Trust me, I WISH they were paying me to write this!!

Lovelovelove the wooden bowl with this meal. Smething about wooden bowls really enhances the experience Turkish/Mediterranean meals <3

I love all of Trader Joe’s product. I need to try their falafel-never had them before!

Reply

Cait's Plate September 30, 2011

I was quite impressed with them, best pre-made ones I’ve had yet I think!

Hi Cait :-)

That dinner looks amazing – falafel/hummus/lettuce is the best combo ever!

We don’t have TJs in Australia, which makes me very sad :-(

Reply

Cait's Plate September 30, 2011

I totally agree that it’s the best combo ever.

And bummer they’re not in Australia (I have cousins there!) – but I feel like living in Australia is a fair trade off for no Trader Joe’s! Haha

oh interesting dinner! I had salad and tofu- Im not a super falafel fan but it looks interesting!

I’ve only recently gotten into it in the past several years. That said, you can’t beat salad and tofu!

What do you think of the Biggest Loser so far this season?
I’ve been a fan off and on for years, but I know there are many in our healthy living/blogging community that don’t care for it.
I’m not sure what to make of this old vs. young thing they have going on this season… it certainly seems like they will just pick off the ‘old folks’ (except maybe for Coach and the youngest “old” woman (I can’t recall her name)), right at the start…

I totally agree – I never can really get into it until there are fewer contestants – because I feel like it’s hard to keep track of who’s who and I don’t like getting attached to people only to see them leave so early on. So far I like the new guy trainer though – but I miss Jillian!

And I think the old vs. young thing is a little strange…I think I like couples best!

I love the little melon scoops of hummus… delicious looking dinner! Don’t you love prepared (healthy) food!

Cait's Plate September 30, 2011

I do! While I always love to make stuff myself, sometimes it’s nice to have a decent option that’s just ready and waiting for ya!

What a delish meal. I may have to recreate that this week.
I just love falafel!
