Starbucks may have put Egg Bites on the map, but Trader Joe’s is keeping this on-the-go breakfast in regular reach. Made with egg whites, this gluten-free morning meal packs protein and pairs well with salsa or even between an English muffin for an easy breakfast sandwich.

Hot Cocoa Cream Cheese Spread (+Bagels!)
Chances are, your kids enjoy chocolate now and then. While we admit this hot cocoa-inspired cream cheese seems a bit on the decadent side, no one can argue how a little smear of this spread will make any bagel better.

An entire, healthy meal awaits with Trader Joe’s organic Açaí bowls. Found in the freezer aisle, they come fully stocked with strawberries, blueberries, bananas, granola, and dried coconut chips.
