For those of you who are on low-carb, Paleo, or ketogenic diets, either because you're diabetic, or are just wanting to lose some weight using the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle eating plan or another diet, one of the common questions I hear all the time is, "I'm going to Trader Joe's. What do you recommend that I buy while I'm there?"
I've compiled a list of items over the last year that are great to shop for at Trader Joe's. Some items may not be in your own personal eating plan due to food allergies or food preferences; a few items may not be in your specific diet plan at all depending on which plan you are doing (dairy products in Paleo, for example).
Even though I've checked the labels of these items to make sure they are low-carb or no-sugar friendly, sometimes ingredients change...so please double-check them to make certain they are free of wheat (except for sprouted grain breads), corn, soy, canola oil, any form of sugar, and other unnatural additives that spike blood sugar levels, like maltodextrin, dextrose, etc.
I hope this will be very helpful for those of you who need a free printable shopping list form you can print off for yourself and take with you to Trader Joe's!
If you notice that I've left off something that's really important (ha!), please leave me a comment below and let me know. I'll add it to future updates of this Trader Joe's grocery shopping list.
Thanks! And feel free to share/pin this with others so they also have it available for their own personal use.

This looks like a terrific resource, and the timing is great because I'm heading on my first trip to TJ since they finally opened one in my area a few months ago!

Hi, need some advice. A friend of mine has been on plan for a long time. I am taking her family a meal (recent death in the family) and I want to make something she can eat and enjoy without guilt. I am not on the plan yet, so I do not have the book. Any suggestions for what I can take?
Mary, how kind of you to want to take them a meal that is "on plan." :) You are a treasure! I'd recommend my Caribbean Seafood Chowder, if they enjoy seafood with a Caribbean twist. It's easy to make in the crockpot, or on the stovetop and then place in a crockpot to stay hot.
