Barefoot by the Sea: My Name Is Jessica...

My Name Is Jessica...

and I'm addicted to Trader Joe's Ginger Cats Cookies.
 
I do love Trader Joe's  for the variety, quality and the yummy goodness.  I love that I can a variety of organic items for a better price and find nutritional goodness throughout their aisles.  I do, however, know that not everything is healthy at Trader Joe's.  I can't go into that place hungry!  I have the tendency to grab and go and then pay later.  This is the case with these Cats Cookies.  I ate a ton a couple of weekends ago...I mean A TON and  I'm beginning to agree that these carb-y snacks are my downfall from a calorie perspective but also full of not so great stuff.  Things I can't pronounce and just things my general diet should do without. 
They sure look innocent enough....
but the proof is in there...and perhaps if I had more self control, they would be ok.  But I don't and knowing that is half the battle!
I recently read a great post over at 100 Days of Real Food regarding the things Lisa buys at Trader Joes, be sure to check it out!  

What are your must haves when you head to Trader Joe's?  Do you have some things that you love but have to avoid?

  1. They don't look that bad to me :-) We don't have Trader Joe's where I live, but I do love that store! I can't keep this type of stuff in the house though, I have no self control. It is better if I don't see it.

    1. I agree, it's self control! With these little guys I just can't seem to stop!

  2. Trader Joe's is the thing I miss the most about living in St. Louis! I was in love with that store. Now we live 2 hours away so I don't get to check out all the cool stuff anymore. Right before we moved, we stocked up on 2 buck chuck wine to fill our wine rack!

    1. I agree Carrie! Get over there! And now if we could just land a Whole Foods, we would be in bliss!

  4. I have fallen victim many times to the Trader Joes tub o' cookies many times. They are so delicious! I always have to pick up a jar of pickles, they are like small little pickles that I can only find there and dark chocolate toffee with crushed pistachios on top! SO good!!
