How fun is this?!
Here are the faves I found (most are low carb)
Will you try any of them? Let me know in the comments!
Low Carb Thanksgiving Shortcuts at Trader Joe’s
Antipasti platter – set this out when your guests arrive for an easy app!
Cranberry Brie Cheese – add this fancy cheese to your antipasti platter
Cranberry Turkey Mini Meatballs – have these on the side – how perfect!
Fig & Olive Crisps – I love these because they’re 11 crackers for 90 cals!
Cranberry Apple Salad – dip the crisps in there!
Frozen mashed cauliflower – this one is SO good and you can make it in the microwave, saving
Roasted vegetables (in the prepared foods section) – this one is good as is! No other veggies or seasonings necessary
Shaved Brussels – stir fry these on the stove top with an oil spray and a little blue cheese crumbles
Cauliflower Gratin – more cheesy cauli goodness! Find it in prepared foods
Green Beans – Stir fry with an oil spray and add some shaved almonds and the garlic salt seasoning!
Cauliflower Rice Stuffing – can we get enough cauliflower?! 🤩
Yes, these are not low-carb 🙃 but I know I’ll get questions about them, so including some here!
Holiday Herbed Rolls – these smell and taste just like “the holidays”!
Butternut Squash Chunks – Roast these at 400 degrees for 30 minutes – SO yummy
Cranberry sauce (fresh) – they also have an orange zest flavored cranberry sauce in the prepared foods section, YUM
Frozen cauliflower-rice stuffing – Love this low carb stuffing alternative!
Kettle Cooked Turkey Gravy (fresh, they also have a vegan option) – find this in the prepared foods section
Fried onions – Are you surprised these are on here? I actually think they’re not so bad! Add them to the green beans above
First of all, you can get a full turkey to cook at Trader’s – but I don’t think that’s necessary, especially with all of these other options!
Grilled chicken strips – These are my faves all year round
Turkey & Stuffing En Croute – definitely more fancy and festive!
Oatmeal raising cookies – one of my all time faves! So many cookies per serving, too
Apple Cider Cookies – definitely fall!
Ginger Snaps – Love these! So many snaps per serving
OTHER & DRINKS
Cranberry Apple Juice + Prosecco – make a little cocktail with these two! Add a stalk of fresh rosemary to make it extra festive
Herbs de Provence & Poultry Mix – add these to veggies or the turkey
Cranberries – use these as decorations!
Berry bouquet & plants – if you can’t bring a food to share, plants work well!
