My Favorite “Make Quickly, Eat Simply” Food Finds

One of my mottos here at The Fit Life is to eat simply.  I am not a cook and I do not like to spend a lot of time prepping food. With that being said, I do not like to eat out a whole lot either. Today I am going to share with you some of my favorites that I am able to pick up all at Trader Joes, that help me eat simply, quickly and healthy.



Fully Cooked Bacon. This is not your truly thick and dense bacon but I actually like the lighter taste and that it is lower in fat.


Pre sliced mushrooms, shredded brussel sprouts and spinach in a bag, ready to go. I will pay extra for pre cut veggies!


A couple minutes and it is done, when you do not have the 45 minutes it, takes to cook brown rice normally.


This meal took me an hour to make but was super simple. Baked the green beans, put the tenderloin in the oven and diced up some multi colored potatoes and sauteed them in olive oil and Trader Joes Everyday Seasoning! SO good!


Coffee just makes everything better, especially when it is seasonally flavored. I make my coffee at home 98% of the time.


Ok, not food, but I couldn’t resist this card in the checkout line. A little motivation in life never hurts.


Plantain chips make a great, simple snack, especially when dipped in hummus or some salsa and homemade guacamole.


Overflowing fruit bowl here of all kinds, including this giant Opal Apple on the counter, which I had never heard of or tried before. Delicious!

What are your favorite go-to, quick and simple, snacks and meals?
