Trader Joe's has a pretty incredible fan base and it's not hard to see why. They offer tons of tasty products at a great price and their customer service is top-notch. We love how convenient their products make getting meals on the table every day, and we always keep a few essentials stocked in the freezer and pantry for those days when there's no time to get to the store. While there are plenty of items that aren't exactly the healthiest, there are just as many that are (and that are dietitian approved)! And those healthy foods are what we highlighted here in this weeklong Trader Joe's meal plan.

How to Meal-Prep Your Week of Meals:

  1. Prep the Falafel Tabbouleh Bowls with Tzatziki to have for lunch on Days 2 through 5. Store in an air-tight container to keep fresh for the week. (To buy: amazon.com, $26 for 5)
  2. Cut half a bunch of celery into sticks and store in a meal-prep container (To buy: amazon.com, $9 for 1) in the fridge to have for snacks on Days 6 and 7.
  3. If you really want to get ahead, portion out snacks ahead of time, so they're ready to grab and go during the week. You can do this with the Go Raw trail mix and the Fig & Olive crackers—just wait to add anything that needs to be refrigerated.
