Healthy, efficient, and they don't taste like they came out of the box!

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!

Chicken Gyoza Potstickers


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

French Onion Soup Bites


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!

Chipotle Vegetable Quesadillas 


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

 Spinach & Artichoke Dip 


One of my favorite appetizers and tastes just like how I would at home!

Summer is hot and humid, and it's almost like summer was made specifically to drink the refreshing, cold, crisp wonderful, delicious, nutritious nectar of the gods. Which is none other than beer; wonderful cold beer. With summer playing peek-a-boo around the corner while we finish up this semester, it's time to discuss the only important part of summer. And if you haven't already guessed, it's beer. There are few things I take more seriously than my beer, in order are: sports... and beer. Here are my favorite summer brews:

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire.

One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.
