What to Buy at Trader Joe's by Blushing in Hollywood

What to Buy at Trader Joe’s

I have been obsessed with Trader Joe’s before I ever set foot in the popular grocery store. One of the big reasons I was excited to move to California? Trader Joe’s.

On my Instagram (@blushinginhollywood) I’ve been posting Trader Joe’s Tuesday where I recommend different products or quick recipes. I figured I’d put together a master list of all of my all time favorite products.

Happy Earth Day! We all want to have a healthy thriving planet that is going to be able to sustain us for generations to come.
