Trader Joe’s

Where I’m from, there are Trader Joe’s stores all over the place.  Here, not so much.  There is one about 30-40 minutes away in Hadley, Mass.  I had a gift card burning a hole in my pocket, so we took a trip down there and I picked up more than a few things.  I bet they make a lot of money from gift cards.  I spent twice as much as I had on the card.  

I discovered that they have an organic beef jerky that is gluten free, for $5.  It’s really good.

They also sell huge bags of certified GF oats for about $3.00!

They sell Udi’s bread too ($4.99), and brown rice tortillas ($2.50, I think).  I hadn’t tried any GF tortillas yet, so yesterday I had a burrito for the first time in the almost three years I’ve been eating GF.  It was so awesome!  Of course, they’re not the same as a flour tortilla, and not as big as the ones I used to get, but they’re adequate.  They stay together pretty well as long as you don’t pack them too full.   

I picked up some blueberry vanilla chevre too.  Oh man.  It’s delicious.  I’ve eaten half of it already, just by itself.  Not on anything.  I’m trying to pace myself, but it’s not working too well.  Cheese is my biggest weakness.  

If you have a TJ’s near you, it’s definitely worth stopping in.  They have quite a selection of GF stuff.
