Beautiful walk to the beach with the kids and dog! It was sunny, warm, spacious and just what we needed. AND there wasn't any complaining! Thankful for our gorgeous home & planet!

See that laptop and books right there?

Yeah, it's been sitting in that same spot untouched all day. Mason has completely hit his limit with this "distance learning". And I'll be honest I'm almost ready to call it summer break already(a month early)! It was going so well until about 2 weeks ago when his defiant personality decided it was done with this type of schooling, and depression and social anxiety in full swing! Isolation is so tough on ours/everyone's mental health and I don't know if we can take anymore of it!

2020 is the year I told myself I'd start focusing on a healthier lifestyle and one thing I've been working on is eating a plant based diet. I've still got a ways to go but I'll get there and so far I feel great! 🌳I've partnered with LightLife to bring you this post, but all opinions are my own. One thing I'm new to is tempeh, after eating the vegan tacos I made, I'm totally sold! I made these amazing tacos with sweet potatoes and Lightlife Original Tempeh. I didn't miss the meat at all!
🌳Tempeh can be used for a number of meals as a protein replacement, available for purchase at your local grocery store(I've found ours at Fred Meyer and @imperfectfoods ) typically for $3.49. Easy to prep, vegan certified, has a savory and slightly nutty flavor, non-GMO and 12g of protein.

5 Items to buy at Trader Joe’s this Fall!

Sharing is caring!

My family loves Trader Joe’s and sadly this past year I’ve only been able to make it over there a couple times a year. (Grocery shopping with a baby can be difficult!) Each season I get over to TJ’s at least once for their seasonal goodies!

I’m sharing my top 5 items to buy this fall at Trader Joe’s below and if you’re looking for more items check out my post from last year, 10 best things to buy at Trader Joe’s this fall. I did notice they didn’t have as much fall foods this year though, I don’t know if that was just my store or they’re flying off the shelves? What’s your must buy at TJ’s during the fall months?

 

  1. TJ’s Veggie Lasagna– although you can find this product year round in the freezer section. It is my absolute favorite lasagna! And it’s perfect for these cold months and honestly taste just as good heated in the microwave.

2. Ready to cook Butternut Squash– this squash is so versatile, easy to cook and taste good. You could easily just eat it with a little butter, salt and pepper. Or bake it like a fry and you’re child won’t even be able to tell ;)

3. Autumn Harvest Pasta Sauce– can’t believe this was the first time I bought and tried this. So good! Spaghetti sauce with a hint of Fall added!

4. Pumpkin Muffins– they didn’t have the other muffins that I usually pick up so I decided to try these. They’re good, just sweet. More of a dessert then a breakfast muffin, in my opinion.

5. Crispy Potato Snacks– this is a great snack for children and adults alike. BUT I will admit they are seriously a hit or miss if you’ll like them. My son and husband didn’t like them at all but my 1 year old, niece and I loved them and devoured them within the evening. They are not your typical potato chip, they are tad bit bland but they are good(if that even makes sense lol). 

Just an extra! The Pumpkin Ravioli’s are another great one to purchase during the fall and even a few extras to freeze, I’ve got a delicious recipe for them you can find here.

Pumpkin Ravioli Recipe that is perfect as a side or main. It's sweet and salty.

Here are 5 items to buy at Trader Joe's this fall, not just pumpkin flavored either!

    That harvest pasta sauce is AMAZING! I’m also a big fan of the harvest salsa which is really mild (i’m wimpy!), the pumpkin greek yogurt, and the honeycrisp apple cider. It’s the best time of year at trader joe’s!
