My Favorite Natural & Eco-Friendly Products From Trader Joe’s

Trader Joe’s is one of my favorite stores!  I just really enjoy shopping there, and while we do get some less healthy snacks and foods there, I have used a lot of healthy options for both wellness and home.

Organic Shelled Hemp Seeds

This is one of my fave healthy finds, and I use it in smoothies, on smoothie bowls, on yogurt and sometimes just a spoonful as a healthy boost!

Per serving, this has 10g protein, 2.5g Omega-3, 8.5 g Omega-6 fatty acids, and more!

Organic Quinoa

Quinoa is a great staple to have for healthy recipes, and Trader Joe’s has some great quinoa. I like their tricolor quinoa, as it add some color and texture to dishes such as quinoa salad.

Felted decorations

In a world of plastic products, and often disposable decorations, I have been enjoying Trader Joe’s felted decorations, like their felted wool ball garlands.  These are so simple and nice to decorate with, and can be easily stored without fear of them breaking.

Organic Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are so versatile, and a great ingredient to keep in your pantry.  And, it is a great source of vegetarian Omega-3s!

Organic Flaxseed Meal

This is also a good source of protein, Omega-3, and of course fiber (as well as other benefits).  I have used this in oatmeal, overnight oats, and energy balls.


I like the variety of nuts at Trader Joe’s, which make for a nice snack especially at work.

Organic Fair Trade Coffee

Trader Joe’s offers organic fair trade coffee options that are sourced from sustainable and ethical farms. These coffees are not only environmentally friendly but also support fair wages and working conditions for coffee farmers.

Organic and Fair Trade Chocolates

Indulge your sweet tooth with Trader Joe’s selection of organic and fair trade chocolate bars. These chocolates are made from sustainably sourced cocoa beans and support fair wages for cocoa farmers, making them a guilt-free treat.

Organic Whole Grain Pasta

Trader Joe’s carries a range of organic whole grain pasta options made from ingredients like quinoa, brown rice, and whole wheat. These healthier alternatives to traditional pasta are packed with fiber and nutrients and are produced using sustainable farming practices. I also find that TJ’s pastas are very reasonably priced.

Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Trader Joe’s organic virgin coconut oil is a versatile and eco-friendly product that can be used for cooking, baking, skincare, and more. It is cold-pressed from sustainably grown coconuts and contains no added preservatives or chemicals.

For cooking and salad dressings, Trader Joe’s organic extra virgin olive oil is a high-quality option that is produced using sustainable farming methods. It is cold-pressed from organic olives and has a rich flavor that enhances any dish.
