Top 10 Worst Frozen Items You Can Buy at Trader Joe’s

Top 10 Worst Frozen Items You Can Buy at Trader Joe’s

Most people love Trader Joe’s, but when it comes to calories and other factors there could be some items you may want to reconsider or at least limit your intake based on your dietary needs.

Kristina Bravo from (ParticipantMedia) does a story on the worse top 10 frozen items you can buy at Trader Joe’s.

Most of these items are either high in sodium, saturated or unsaturated fats, cholesterol, calories, or something else.

Here’s the list:

BBQ Chicken Pizza

Cookie Butter Ice Cream

Roasted Eggplant Parmesan

Mandarin Orange Chicken

Breakfast Burritos

Ricotta & Spinach Cannelloni

Chile Relleno

Chicken Pot Pie Bites

Mac & Cheese Bites

Chicken Marsala with Mashed Potatoes


No matter where you shop you must read the labels and educate yourself about what is not good for you and what is. I simply opt out of any prepared food. I am important enough to make a meal for myself daily and there are so many forms of the bad stuff often you can’t know it is even in the packaged stuff. Like MSG has about 20 or more different names it goes by so it is just better to cook for myself. Eat organic, support local farmers who are organic. Help save this planet and yourself.
