It's only $7 a six-pack, and only 5%, which the "have to work tomorrow" version of me likes.

I bought the euphony one and drank it in the shower and I felt high??? Like not drunk but high. Very weird experience.

i'm always tempted to try those weird TJ beers but i've been burned too many times to bother anymore. price point on the sixers isn't all that great either

Brocolli fried up in olive oil with garlic and shallots and then braised in red wine is a good decadent-tasting healthy option

i tried the lowfat mac n cheese because of this post and it was surprisingly very good! def gonna stock up on those

the jackfruit curry is real good

the prepared salads can be amazingly good but I've found it really depends on location since different distribution centers will have different proportions for different ingredients and the freshness is all over the map. The ones I used to get in Santa Cruz were always super fresh and packed to the gills and kind of a revelation, but the ones I had in NYC were trash.

Glad you like it!

My roommate brought home the spinach and riced cauliflower salad kit the other night and it was really good

One of my favorite low-fat, but hearty (and cheap!) options is their cheese tortellini mixed with their pomodoro sauce and crumbled goat cheese. You can spruce it up with some spinach and garlic sauteed in olive oil, fresh basil, and/or pesto

As a very hungry boy, none of the frozen entrees are individually enough for me. For dinner, I like to do an Indian entree + half a box of chicken tikka samosas + garlic naan. With lamb vindaloo it comes out to 830 calories with a reasonable protein/fat/carb ratio, which for a big ass meal of frozen food is... pretty reasonable I think? 800 calories is kind of the sweet spot for me.

yeah i also have a baseline large appetite, unfortunately. mixing cottage cheese into the indian entrees is my usual move and even then it's never enough to sustain me like as an actual meal. i love those naan. i've been letting them warm up in the oven while i make some scrambled eggs with the everything but the bagel spice blend. they're also good with the eggplant/red pepper spread (which i guess is just the tj's version of ajvar)--i had that for dinner with some of the hummus the other night

Pancake Bread, $4 for 15 ounces
If you really want to indulge for breakfast but don't have time to make pancakes, might I suggest this pancake bread? A slice of this will transport you straight to Sunday brunch. Kitchn's Audience Development Associate, Emma Glubiak, helped me devour this and she said this: "The first bite reminded me of a traditional pound cake with a little extra sugar on top for pizazz. The aftertaste, however, is exactly like pancakes — right down to the buttery maple syrup flavor. I'm shocked, impressed, and will use this as an excuse to eat cake for breakfast." I concur!

the cauliflower gnocchi is pretty great. cooked it frozen, right into the pan with a bit of olive oil, and topped with baby tomatoes, garlic, and carmelized onions that i'd cooked down for a bit. way better than cauliflower rice.
