My Favorite Items on Our Summer Walks


Summer is coming and one of my favorite things to do with my almost three-month-old baby boy is to go on daily walks around our neighborhood. As a new mom, I tend to want to overprepare whenever I take my son out, but since we walk almost every day I have my essential items down!

I pack our stroller with his stretchy cover to protect him from the sun, his pacifier just in case, a water tumbler for me, and a Kleenex Go Anywhere Pack because you always need tissue handy. Continue reading “My Favorite Items on Our Summer Walks”

Trader Joe’s Grocery Haul- July 2016

It’s that time again. Time for a Trader Joe’s grocery haul where I show you what I bought at Trader Joe’s. Personally, I love grocery shopping as well as seeing what other people buy. Yes, grocery hauls are a thing! Just Google search it, and you will see.

Trader Joe’s is one of my all-time favorite stores for several reasons:

  • Great quality food
  • Low prices (I shop smart and save money here)
  • No artificial preservatives, colors, GMO’s, ect.
  • Exciting new items each month
  • Quality protein, fresh and frozen
  • Healthier snack options
  • Lots of vegetarian and vegan items

Seriously, I should be a spokesperson for Trader Joe’s. If you are reading this Trader Joe’s, email me! Make my nerdy dreams come true.

These are some of the items I bought. I have tried and loved most of them before, but there are a couple of new items as well.

Snacks: We love chips. That’s all I have to say about those. The baked ones are really good. Tommy likes granola bars, so those make an easy snack at work for him.

Protein: The eggs are a great price at Trader Joe’s sometimes I get the more expensive ones, but these are only $1.29.

Tommy loves these frozen turkey meatballs, and the ground turkey is great quality so I get that for him as well.

Dip: THIS DIP IS AMAZINGLY DELICIOUS. Green Tajini Dip & Sauce. You need it! Dip veggies in it, dip chips, dip crackers, put it on salad, fish, chicken, whatever. It is so good. It’s $2.99, and I wish I had gotten three of them.

Vegetarian Protein: Since I eat mostly vegetarian I always buy a few meat replacement items. I love Quinoa Cowboy veggie burgers. I eat them with just a side of veggies or veggies and rice for a healthy and easy meal.

I’ve never tried baked tofu, but this looked good to me so we will see how I like it.

Frozen Items: The frozen hash browns are $1.69, and I love them. A lot.

I’ve purchased the frozen brown rice before, and it’s a good way to have an easy side and save time cooking it.

Extras: Almond butter is expensive. This was the most expensive item I bought, but I find it to be cheaper that at most stores. It’s $7.99, but it lasts us a long time. I use it for almond butter and jelly sandwiches, or I put it on top of my oatmeal .

Fresh Fruits & Veggies: I didn’t need much, because we are already stocked up on produce. I only got carrots and bananas.

I LOVE fresh fruit and vegetables. What are your summer favorites? I am currently loving watermelon and cucumber.

Smoothies: I like buying frozen fruit at Trader Joe’s for making smoothies. The pineapple tidbits are a must.

 Pantry: Spices are also a great deal here. I use the taco seasoning mix on the ground turkey for Tommy.

That is everything I got this trip. If you want to see more good items to buy at Trader Joe’s be sure to check out my older Trader Joe’s Grocery Hauls.

Small Healthy Costco Haul

Healthy Costco Haul

This was a small and healthy Costco haul! Sometimes it is hard to know what to buy at Costco because I am only shopping for a household of two adults. So as much as I want to, buying a giant box of muffins or a 10 pound tub of cream cheese is just not the best idea.  Let me show you what I got this time!

Seapoint Farms Edamame3

I have been a fan of edamame for a long time!

One of my firsts posts on Wife Life Kitchen was my Spicy Sriracha Soy Edamame (which is still my favorite way to eat edamame 🙂 by the way.)

So when I was contacted by Seapoint Farms I was very excited. They sent me a few more products to try, and I have included them here to show you. I also have one cool product I found on my own and fell in love with!
