The other day I went there kind of starving after a long run and ended up buying the sample item they were giving away in the store. Luckily, that sample item was a very delicious $4.99 arugula pizza.
Monday, I decided to roll meatless and naturally, Trader Joe's helped with a lot of the ingredients. Into the pan went TJ's frozen fire roasted corn, TJ's frozen grilled bell peppers and onions, TJ's black beans and mushrooms, plus a little taco seasoning.
Then, a grilled sweet potato (also now found at TJ's)...
While filling the burritos, I added quinoa (more protein and fiber - whoop!), avocado (healthy fats), a little cheese, mild salsa and TJ's non fat sour cream.
I finally wrapped up the burritos in locally made whole wheat tortillas with cheddar and hot sauce on top paired with TJ's broccoli to broil for 10-15 min.
Do you have any idea which one belongs to the manfriend?
This Meatless Monday dish was perfect because it was healthy, but has those satisfying characteristics with the creamy tastes from the sweet potato, black beans, mushroom and avocado.
Additionally, it's great if you're trying to feed big hungry men who like meat because you can fill up the burrito (or make extras) and still keep it healthy. I promise, they'll be satisfied with this dish!
And if this post didn't prove why you too should love Trader Joe's, I'll leave you with the message I saw this week inside their store.
OH, and guess who is visiting? Kristin from Nashville!
We had a fun girl's night eating pizza, drinking wine and catching up with other friends last night. Having friends visit is the best. Let the fun continue! Happy Thursday!
