Vegan Stuff I Love At Trader Joe's



I am a big fan of Trader Joe's.  I love the neighborly feel of the staff and the trading post vibe of the store and products.  I also love that I get carded every time I buy wine there - with or without my kids (appealing to a woman's age is always good!).  And then, there's the food.  I can find tons of healthy, delicious stuff for my carnivorous fam, while also stocking up on vegan essentials.  Oh, and they have kosher foods, another plus for when I am buying meat (the only meat I buy when I have to for my family).  I love these guys!
