If You Love Trader Joe's, You Have to Check out These Healthy Frozen Food Finds

Trader Joe's is more than just a grocery store — it's truly an experience. Packed with great quality options at affordable prices, TJ's is the grocery store choice for many. Its frozen foods aisle is packed with tons of hidden healthy gems, and we at the Good Housekeeping Institute Nutrition Lab love 'em. Believe it or not, frozen foods in general are often flash frozen directly after harvest or preparation, and this helps to lock in nutrients that fresh foods may gradually lose when in transit to the grocery store. Plus, freezing extends the lifespan of ingredients and can help cut down on food waste. All the more reason to stock up on these healthy frozen foods at Trader Joe's!

Frozen foods do have one drawback, though — and it's that they are known for their high sodium content. This is the first thing I look at when reviewing the nutrition facts label. When searching for the best frozen foods, shoppers should aim for under 600mg sodium per serving if possible — the lower the sodium the better — and aim for real, wholesome ingredients (the fewer ingredients, the better).

While you probably have your favorite TJ items already stocked, think about adding some of these healthy finds to your list!
