So I figured you know what I got a couple of bags in. So it’s a perfect time to share with you guys right. Some of these are for my kids and then some of them is for me. I am doing the the lazy keto diet, because what I really need to so there are some items that I love to get over at Trader Joe’s so that I can stay on track of my my Kido Kido diet journey.
Alright. Here we go okay, friends, so we have actually four huge bags so right here, all these items – and I am outside because we are – we are tiling, our kitchen backsplash, so there’s a lot of stuff all over the all over the kitchen and plus it’s dark, always Dark in there, so I figured I’d. Take you guys out here really quick, let’s go stop and get started with the first bag, okay, friends. So this is the first bag from my my four bags and just to let you guys know if you’re new here I do get a lot of my staples over Trader Joe’s.
I do have my basic staples of my pantry, my freezer, my refrigerator. My spices kind of thing – and I only get that over at Trader Joe’s because I love the flavor. I love the taste and then also I love the price um, the kids love these granola bars, peanut butter and nutty chocolate Danielle can’t have nuts I’m very picky of the granola bars, because sometimes it has hidden traces of nuts in there that she could be allergic To and this one always works out for me, I got that and then I do have an apple tree and it is blossoming with a whole bunch of apples.
I cannot wait to start making apple pie, apple, fritters or Apple pockets, and my go-to pie crust is over at Trader Joe’s pie crust. This contains two of them. I like this because of the consistency, there’s been other pie, crust that I get. If I can’t make it to the Trader Joe’s – and I feel like it’s like it’s tough, it seems like it’s been there, a while kind of thing. I don’t know, I just preferred this one.
I really this is like my really go to eggs, because I am on the keto keto diet. I cannot do full keto, so I do like the lazy Kido, but I am so egged out, but I always get some eggs and this is the eggs that I get over at Trader, Joe’s the cherry lane and then speaking of eggs. So this is everything but the bagel sesame season bland. It is with sea, salt, garlic and onion, and I believe this is zero.
Carbs yep, zero carbs. So just to let you guys know with keto, you just got to read your carbs and your sugar. Everything else is, like you know, you’re good, to go as far as I know, I’m just starting out, but a quarter of a teaspoon is zero carbs, and I took this over my eggs and it just gives it that nice crunch to it there’s garlic, onion and Then that flavor to it just makes it really good and then also when I saute my spinach, my my dark greens.
I add this on to it towards the end, just to give it a little crunch, like I said, kids love their pickles cookies. So we got two of those and then the deli spicy brown, mustard and love that this one is also for me, part of the keto one gram of carbs per 1/3 cup serving. So that’s really good. This one is really nice I bought this before, but I didn’t do it to room for my keto. It just adds a bit of a flavoring to it, just something different kind of vegetables, because I’m totally truly tired of like the typical dark green.
So it just adds a bit of a variety of acardo’s. I love my avocados, but I think getting my avocados over Costco cos they’re so huge and they ripen all at the same time. So I love these over at Trader Joe’s. I believe this is like 329, but there’s six of them and they’re the teeny tiny avocados they’re perfect one serving after that. I can even share that and then slice black olives. This is for me, this is total.
Carbs is one gram per two tablespoons, so I kind of like to sprinkle this on to my salad, a little bit just slice. It up add that to my salad and and gives it a great flavor. I can’t love this. I love this Trader Joe’s untwine Organic assia puree. Is it called the SIA? I always pronounce a SIA, puree packets and there’s four of them in here. I feel like they’re like four dollars, and so so the kids love this into their smoothies.
But I also like to to have this over, like my my fruits, if I have, if I have Greek non-fat Greek yogurt I’ll, add that in there get a little bit of that packet and get like maybe a quarter, because I believe one packet is how many Carbs six grams of carbs, so it’s not bad when you’re getting just a little bit darker. Here’s the kids love to make their cats ideas. So let me go ahead and grab my other bag all right.
Okay, so I am going to my second bag. We’ve got some fancy shredded Mexican blend. This is for their class ADEA, and it’s also for me over my eggs when I’m having it for breakfast. It’s a nice texture, it’s nice and thin, so they have another cheese over Trader Joe’s. That’s kind of you know it’s a bit more thicker and this one is total carbs one gram. So what keto diet? You go through a lot of cheese, a lot of cream cheese, a lot of like fattening stuff, but yet low on carbs, okay.
So the kids love to get this have started to love this during the summer of getting the plain pizza dough ready to bake. So they have a couple of varieties of different pizza dough. So it’s nice because it allows the kids to just make their own pizza. I get some into the kitchen, my kids, my three big kids, even the little dannika she’s, almost four. She loves to do it so she’s been having fun with that, and then I got some pizza sauce to go with this, so easy peasy for them and then for their pizzas.
It’s just the cheese that I just showed you and then they like it with pepperoni. So we got some of this gourmet pepperoni to put on to their pizza, so I believe this was like two fifty two, forty nine and then this one is so cheap, a dollar a dollar ninety-nine for this ready to make pizza dough. Okay. So, for me, part of my feet: oh the other pepperoni is for myself, so I I’ve been eating a lot of meat, so I like to have these little simple, I’m like deli meat.
I bought a whole bunch of G’s over at the commissary. Then I just put our cheese fries on top of that and then I’m good to go as far as like a quick lunch or my go-to snack. I also delegate because that one needs are 1 grams of one gram of carbo for this one. So my go-to is the smoked turkey, breast and then this one is the oven roasted turkey breast. So we really like that flavor and then for the salad dressing.
So this time I chose the cilantro salad dressing. I’ve had this plenty of times. I love it. It’s total carbs is 2 grams and you can’t beat that. So I add that onto my my salads that one and then the kids love this toasted coconut pancake mix, you just add water. Sometimes I add milk for a bit more flavor. This one is 40 grams of carbo carbohydrates, so that’s just for the kids, and then I got this one, for the kids, too, is the organic low-fat yogurt.
Is that squishers squishers? I love the font, but can barely read it and for cherry for cherry +4 berry. So I never tried this before, hopefully that they like it, but just out of curiosity, I wouldn’t know what the carbs is 10 grams of carb, but it’s the sugar. I bet 8 grams of sugar, not bad for further snack. Ok, so I believe these are all mine, okay, so here’s my salad mix and, of course, I share with the kids to get this one that baby spring mix.
I believe this is just a dollar ninety-nine simple, easy: okay, friends with Kido, you eat a lot of broccoli, but I don’t like broccoli. I do like, though, is the organic baby broccoli from Trader Joe’s this one I’ll eat, but I don’t like to eat the broccoli. Flower is a flower red flower. That kind of thing. So I just think this add some of that seasoning, that I just showed you guys of the everything but the bagel seasoning really good, and then some sprinkle some olive oil in there, good god.
This is the same thing I think with this one is this: is the shishito peppers sweet peppers not sometimes not too sweet just a little bit of kick to it? Carbohydrates is 3 grams or seven peppers. You cannot beat that so then, again, I just steam. This steam put some seasoning in there. Okay for keto diet. We can have berries, we can have blackberries, raspberries, strawberries and blueberries. So got this over to Joseph $ 2.
99 cream cheese. You can have cream cheese with the keto diet. This is 2 grams of fat per 3 tablespoon. I got some organic sour cream and organic sour cream is 2 grams and 2 grams of sugar 2 grams of carb per 2 tbsp. I don’t know why I’m sure he guys the carbs, but just in case you’re, doing keto along as well. I just wanted to share that with you guys, coconut creamer I have been. I have been trying to get accustomed to my new ways of drinking my coffee, which is just coffee on my Keurig, and then I put strong and then I use whipping cream.
I don’t use any sugars any sweeteners just whipping cream, so I wanted to try this one, because I know that I can have coconut and it says total carbs one gram per one tablespoon so going to check this out. Okay, Jonathan already opened this, so this is the Vietnamese coffee, flavored caramel. We like this. This is a good treat, but of course I can’t have it – I’m not even going to look at the kerbs on that one, but um Jonathan picked that out.
He loves them. So, red wine and oil vinaigrette – this is a classic Italian dressing and I get this because the girls like this but carbs all zero carbs, pretty good okay, so that is for me as well: okay, both Samak vinegar. I like this I’ve gotten this before so carbs. On this, one is six grams, and I just I use this to add a bit more flavoring onto onto my meals. You can put this into everything you put this under salads or your vegetables, or even your meat like sometimes I’m just meat out, because I have to get a lot of protein into my um into my Kido.
So I just sprinkle a little bit of this, and then it just gives it a little bit of a kick and flavor okay. This set should is just for my kids, but I wanted to show you guys. I went to the frame, so these are little cheese that I got over at my commissary, so they have the for the pepper jack, which is really nice, not too spicy, and then I got the herb and garlic jack doan. I don’t think I opened it up not yet this is the tomato and basil jack, and what I do is this.
I get my deli meat, whether it’s this one or the pepperoni, and then I just don’t get this like put it in four and then I put one or two cheese per you know for deli meat into a nice plate survey. I feel like I’m getting like a sophisticated snack, so I wanted to show you guys that, okay, now for the kids, they love pineapple juice over Trader Joe’s. I don’t know what it is. I’m always sharing this with my friends Trader Joe’s is the only one I bought the grocery store that I can find pure pineapple juice into the refrigerator.
I know they sell the doles in the little towns kind of thing with the big can but Trader Joe’s is the only one that has just plain pineapple juice. So I’m wondering how much carbs I know this has a lot of sugar. Carbs is 30. Oh, my gosh, 30 grams and sugar is 26 grams. Okay, damn definitely just for the paper on that one, so they also like these mini beef. Tacos, look at the carbs on that one Dan.
If I loves these hold the cone, I believe this is just $ 2.99, so I always get a couple of that. The girls love these Japanese style fried rice. Again, these are my go-to. These are my standards so hungry, and then this one as well imagine orange chicken is one of the number-one projects or Trader Joe’s as far as like they’re frozen food, this one they said it’s just similar to the Panda Express, and I agree with them.
I love this okay, mac and cheese. I’ve got three of this. This is the American cheese go-to for the kids, actually flavor, I’m wondering how many carbs 42 grams of carbs. I believe that okay, so this one, these two are mine. So I love to use this one, the cocoa powder unsweetened and look at the carbs three grams of carbs for one tablespoon, which is pretty a lot. What is the sugar? No sugar, but you know what, when you’re, making a dessert, especially for kiddos or what I do.
I’ve made this once I use whipping cream. What is this one turn acog zero. So this is the whipping cream from Trader Joe’s and then it is zero grams of carbs. So you do a whipping cream. You do cream cheese, you can do sprinkle it with cocoa powder and then I use like a stevia sugar, not the regular sugar. Whatever sugar, you, you choose, not sugar, but sugar alternative, and then you got yourself some nice dessert.
Sometimes I do want the the taste of the chocolate. So I get this or dark chocolate as well. All right, let’s go on to our last bag. Okay, we are down to our last bag and this one is a super super, quick one that I’m going to go through. So this section is for the kids, so Jonathan was with me: he picked out the cinnamon sugar. This is perfect if you have little ones, so I got this one for the kids, cinnamon sugar, muffin and baking mix.
I love getting these kind of box treats for the kids, because the instructions is so far super easy for the kids to follow. So I got that one. I think I bought that one before I know they like that one they can easily get it with the marinara sauce Organic and then make their own like little steady, steady pasta put some cheese on it, they’re good to go. Refried pinto beans got this for the kids as well organic.
Let me just carbs 28 grams of carbs of my goodness. I used to think like doing other diets. I used to think that, like you know, organic black beans is like really good for you and I can really overdo my beans but love 20 grams for half a cup. That’s a lot of carbs, okay, so those are for the kids, and this is for me. So I got coconut cream organic coconut cream. I think this is like two dollars over at Trader Joe’s and total carbs is one gram for two tablespoons, so I use this in a lot of ways like, for instance, like bet my veggies, if sometimes, if I’m so tired of my veggies of just sauteing with Olive oil, or or steaming, if you saute it with olive oil.
You put this towards the end. You got yourself a little creamy, creamy veggie, that’s like an Asian flair to it. So got that then. Finally, you step on my organic virgin, coconut oil. I use this for so many things. I have a article here of like what I use it for my for my like personal hygiene kind of thing. I have one upstairs into the bathroom. I have one in the pantry, so one is designated for for the other.
I use this to soften up my as far as the personal hygiene I use this to soften up my hair. I do like a hot oil treatment with it. I do it for my son lotion for my skin when the kids like have bad eczema. I know some people can’t use coconut coconut oil for eczema because they’d say they flares up. Well, that’s not how it is with my kids. It doesn’t make them flare up, so I use this as well. So it’s not always the the medicine, but then also for your for your feet.
After a shower put, some of the coconut oil onto your feet put socks over. It go to sleep and the next time. The next morning, when you wake up. Oh, my gosh, your feet is so soft and so great that you could actually like slide onto your floor literally okay, so but for the kitchen wise, I use it for everything and then I like to use the mince garlic over Trader Joe’s. What is the carbs of this total carbs? One gram easy-peasy? So don’t I don’t? I hate mincing garlic, I hate peeling garlic and then just squishing it because all the peels start coming off.
I don’t know one of my pet peeves. I guess okay, so I’m trying this really not having sugar, but when I do bake like the the one that I told you guys about with the whipping cream and the cream cheese you can put with that, you can put chocolate shavings or the cocoa powder, but You can put also like a pumpkin puree like a tablespoon or two of the pumpkin puree, with apple spice, for the fall put some of this as a sugar, alternative, whipping cream and the whipping cream and then the cream cheese.
That’s your dessert really really good. Okay, I bought this this time, which is the pack of line. This is like a dollar ninety-nine or maybe two dollars, but I like to just squeeze lime onto my water. That makes me drink a lot more water put slices of lime in there into my water. As well, but also I like to squeeze the lime onto my salad, with just olive oil or avocado oil, and I’m kind of good to go so like that and then underneath up over that and then also use it.
It’s like a marinade for my my chicken chicken tenders or anything that I I grow and then you guys know you guys know. I love my wasabi roasted. You can eat that. Oh my gosh, so this is a perfect snack. It gives you 1 gram of herbs for half the packet. We believe that so I got two of those alright, that’s it! That’s it! That’s all I got for my Trader Joe’s. I hope you guys enjoyed my Trader Joe’s.
I shared with you guys the carbs and then some of the sugar intake, just just for those that’s reading that wants to do the keto diet or are doing the keto diet, I’m going to add into the description of keto friendly as well.
