Trader Joe’s love and Two Good Sources for Motivation
One of my goals this year is to stop spending so many dollars on groceries. In lieu of this goal we have been giving Trader Joe’s a fair shot and I have to say that I really am impressed with them. I use to think they were really only good for packaged goods and wine. However, their produce section is definitely improving and well their packaged goodies are pretty great. Two desserts that I have been consuming this week are their Dark Chocolate Honey Mints:
There are only three ingredients! Woot- a far cry from the hydrogenated cotton seed oil & corn syrup that other mints offer.
My other have is their Dark Chocolate Triple Ginger Cookies. Yum!
The ingredients on these gems are not as clean as the mints, but still loads better than oodles of cookies out there
The good news with both of these desserts is they are magical. For some reason I can have just two of either and be done with them. This is not normal behavior for moi.
I also tried Trader Joe’s Roasted Seaweed Snacks, which work well as a chip alternative with more minerals and less calories. Win all around.
On a completely unrelated note, if the you need a little help in keeping your resolve strong in attaining any New Year’s goals you might have set up, I invite you to check out two places I frequent everyday. Both of these sites are valuable resources for keeping my spiritual and fitness mojo running.
1. Tone It Up- I have talked about this site before, but lately I have been stopping by the tone it up community and blog daily to keep my fitness and health goals at the forefront of my noggin’. The Tone It Up ladies’ workouts and dietary tips are so effective and so practical that anybody can find a nugget of inspiration on this site.
2. The Daily Love- I think I have mentioned this site before too, but, again, I have really been soaking up the daily emails the site sends. Everyday you get a new motivational message delivered straight to your inbox. I always check my email first thing in the morning, so I get to start my day with their words of wisdom. I swear everyday it feels like the messages were written just for me. I am sure I am not alone in this sentiment.
And with that, I am off. Happy Friday!!
