Trader Joe’s is well known as the ultimate snack destination. But what if you’re looking for wholesome grazing between meals? Good news…you can also choose actually healthy snacks at Trader Joe’s that are absolutely delicious, too!
As a Trader Joe’s vegan junkie, I keep up on all the latest TJ’s plant-based products, and I create and maintain a variety of Trader Joe’s shopping lists and meal ideas.
Check out these wholesome, guilt-free snacks, including oil-free, no added sugar, minimally processed, and low-sodium snack options. Second only to fresh fruit and veggies!
Dry Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
Perhaps one of the healthiest foods at Trader Joe’s, these in shell pumpkin seeds are cooked without any oil! High in protein at 9 grams per serving, this simple snack with just 2 ingredients is uberhealthy and hits the spot when you are craving something crunchy and savory.
With just two simple ingredients, edamame and salt, it’s hard to beat this nutritious choice. Found in the frozen section, I often leave the bag in the refrigerator over night and then they are ready by snacking time the next day.
Made with olive oil, Trader Joe’s popcorn is a healthy choice all around, with just 3 ingredients.
100% Juice Smoothies
Made of clean, whole ingredients, these Trader Joe’s 100% juice smoothies are a smart choice that hits the spot!
The green smoothie is so sweet and delicious that you would never guess that it is green in a blind taste test! With fruit like banana, mango, kiwi, plus juices from pineapple and apple, you can’t even taste those uberhealthy ingredients like spurilina.
Cauliflower Crisps Snack
These delicious and unique tasting crisps are gluten-free and oil-free to boot! Made with cauliflower, brown rice, coconut milk, seeds, and spices, these crackers are delicious all on their own, or as a scooper for your favorite dip or sauce.
