Healthy Fall Haul (updated for 2023)


Trader Joe’s is famous for their fun & delicious fall products. We love them too, but if you grab them all, you’ll end up with a cart full of sugar, sodium & saturated fat!

So, we’ve read all the labels & tested all the products to help you choose the healthiest options.

Here are our ten favorite healthy fall products, plus recipes & serving suggestions to help you use them in well-balanced meals & snacks.

All of these items are seasonal, so stock up on them while you can.
