I need to head to TJs to get some groceries and wondered what you guys like that is SBD Phase 2 friendly. I wish, oh wish that their chicken salad were okay but somehow I doubt it will be. I'll have to look at the ingredients.

It's easy to make homemade chicken salad.

Sorry to do a repeat of a thread.

No need to apologize Mom We love talking Trader Joe's because it's so SBD friendly! Heck, I drive 2 hours each way every 6 weeks or so just to stock up.

I didn't see my favorite listed: chicken chile lime burgers. Absolutely delicious and good on all phases. They're in the frozen section.

There sure aren't. It looks like Missouri is closer to Dallas than the one in New Mexico but either way it is too far. Looks like about 10 hours.

The cilantro salad dressing was recommended by someone on here and it is great! Its in with the salad at our TJ's has to stay cold...

I buy their pita pockets, and lots of their Meatless meats! lol
also, their cheese selection is very good... bought some great smoked gouda there last week!

I'll have to try their cilantro dressing. I remember this mexican restaurant in California that had a Mexican Caesar salad. It had a cilantro dressing and those pumpkin seed things. Man that was good!

I think I'll head over there tomorrow and see what they have.
