Quinoa Duo

If you are lucky enough to have a Trade Joes near you (mine is an hour away) you have some great shopping options. I really get tired of the same-O same-O at my regular grocery store.

Before going to Trader Joes I do a bit of online research so I don't end up with a bunch of organic junk food!

Quinoa is a nutty little grain that is a protein powerhouse! My husband does not want quinoa for dinner, so here is a good alternative for me.  This has white and red quinoa with vegetables,  is quite delicious, and easily heated in the microwave.

1 serving is a cup  (which I think it too large) and has 220 calories, 4g fiber, and 6 g protein.

Do you have a favorite Trader Joes food?


  1. I shop at Trader Joe's a lot but haven't bought too much packaged stuff - mostly veggies and nuts and wine :). I will have to look for this one.

  2. I LOVE Trader Joe's, am so lucky to have them really close. You're right, you do have to be careful not to end up with a bunch of healthy junk food, because they have fun stuff. I love their frozen roasted asparagus, and they have a bran blueberry muffin that has good nutritionals that has become a staple.
