10 Frozen Meals To Buy At Trader Joe's That Will Cure You From Ever Going To Walmart Again

Trader Joe's is easily one of my favorite grocery stores to shop at in Lexington. Even though it is a little bit more pricy than Kroger and Walmart, the selection and quality are what makes it worth the money. They hands down have one of the best-frozen food sections and as a college student, that means a lot. I really strive to eat very healthily for the most part, but there are days where I really do not have time to make a full-blown meal, so having these alternative options is extremely nice. The selection at Trader Joe's is like no other.

Most of the products that you find there you will not find at any grocery store. Throughout the holiday season, they sell some of the most unique jams that you can be used as spreads for your holiday parties. All of the Trader Joe's staff is so welcoming and helpful and I love the environment of the store altogether. They have a great mission at each and every one of their stores of the goal of donating a certain amount of food every year. It is great to have such a wonderful neighborhood grocery store that provides so much quality, healthy selections that are quick and easy. Here are the top 5 frozen meals to buy at Trader Joe's. Enjoy!

Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese

This is one of my top favorite meals to get during the fall holiday season! It is great for lunch or dinner on weeknights when I am super busy. I wish they had it all year round!

Asparagus Risotto

The asparagus risotto is my favorite! It has such a flavorful taste and goes great as a side dish for dinner!

Gnocchi al Gorgonzola

I have never had gnocchi until one of my college roommates introduced me to it. Trader Joe's has a variety of different Gnocchi's in the frozen section. You can't go wrong with any of them!

Mandarin Orange Chicken

I always find it extremely hard to make orange chicken myself and this fixes that problem for me. Trader Joe's Mandarin Orange Chicken is super quick and easy. Pop it in the oven and its ready for ya!

A quick appetizer that tastes just like it came from a restaurant!

French onion soup is one my favorite soups but is so hard to compare to restaurants, but this definitely does the trick. It is a great appetizer for hosting guests that everyone enjoys!

Pizza Margherita

A great way to get your pizza fix in!

Chicken Burrito Bowl

Such a great substitute if you don't have time to get chipotle!

Quesadillas are such an easy fix for me on any type of day! Super easy to pop right in the microwave!

 Spinach & Artichoke Dip

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
