Trader Joe’s Haul: What We’re Eating While On Vacation!
July 6, 2021
A look at the food I’m preparing for myself, Mr. Matt and Sage while we’re on vacation in Florida. See what we bought in this Trader Joe’s haul.
It’s time for another grocery haul… vacation style! As you’ll know if you’ve watched my recent videos, we’re currently vacationing in Orlando Florida. We’ve chosen to stay at an Airbnb for the first week, so we needed to get some groceries to feed the whole familia while we’re here. Take a look at what we bought in our Trader Joe’s haul, and I hope this gives you some meal inspo!
Our Trader Joe’s Haul: What we bought
We’ll be eating all the things we got for Sage too as we do try to cook meals we can all eat for ease. If you saw my baby packing essentials video you’ll know I brought some pre-packaged baby purees for the flight. But now that we’re actually here, I’m excited to get back to making her food from scratch. I even packed this hand blender so I’d be able to whip up her usuals. It might look like we’ve bought a lot for a vacation, but we’re planning on cooking two meals at home and then only eating out once a day.
Fruits and Veggies
Organic apples – To make apple sauce. It’s so super easy. They’re also great for us just to snack on.
Georgia peaches – They smell so good! Sage had some in her oatmeal for the first time this week!
Bananas – Sage eats a lot of bananas (our little monkey!). They’re perfect to go in oatmeal, or even just cut baby led weaning style.
Organic sweet potatoes – It may be just in my head, but when it comes to sweet potatoes, I think organic tastes better. They’re great for Sage mashed up, and they’re great for us too.
Limes – Because you’ve got to have some citrus in your life, am I right?
Avocados – We’re going to do taco night! Sage also eats a lot of avocado – a true baby HealthNut 😉
Organic baby kale – I never feel fully in my routine if I don’t have my green smoothies.
Organic spring mix – Super easy for tossing up a salad in two seconds.
Organic baby spinach – Again, for my green smoothies.
Cucumbers – For, you guessed it, my green smoothies!
Cage free organic eggs – Sage is now eating eggs so the whole family can enjoy these.
Organic grass fed ground beef – Another food Sage had for the first time this week! It’s super tasty and we’ll be cooking up more for dinner throughout the week.
The unexpected cheddar cheese – This is our favourite cheese! It says it ‘tastes like an aged premium cheddar with hints of parmesan’ and OMG… it’s so good. It tastes expensive but it’s super cheap.
Apple smoked bacon – A fave of ours that we’ve had before.
Rolled oats – A staple breakfast in the HealthNut home.
Cinnamon – I keep spices fairly simple with Sage, but love adding cinnamon to her oatmeal. Cinnamon is also great for sweet potatoes and smoothies.
Black and white beans – The black beans are great to go with rice and ground beef (taco bowl style)
Pico de gallo – I accidentally bought the hot one but we’ll see how it goes!
Crackers – We got some sweet potato crackers which are really good, and a personal favourite of mine, mini peanut butter sandwich crackers.
Everything but the bagel seasoning blend – I got 3 of these! They’re so good I’m bringing some back to Canada with me.
Avocado oil spray – This is great because it’s pretty all-purpose so saves buying a bunch of different oils.
