Trader Joe's Soy Creamy

Of all the delicious food items sold at Trader Joe’s, their Soy Creamy Cherry Chocolate Chip dessert is the best.  I discovered it when I first moved to Oregon.  It is a non-dairy, vegan, gluten-free treat.  Each serving is 190 calories and the ingredients are wholesome- organic soy milk and organic cane sugar, which is great compared to the cream, sugar, corn syrup and xanthan gum found in regular brands like Dryer’s.  The Trader Joe’s brand does have more sugars and carbs, however.

If I ever move back to Sacramento, Old Fair Oaks is definitely the place to live.  If not for the American River bike trail, schools, and community, then definitely for its proximity to Sunflower Natural Foods restaurant. This is the best vegetarian and vegan lunch spot in Sacramento since 1978.

Today I ordered my usual: Super Avocado with Cheese.  But they also have delicious milkshakes, smoothies, burritos and a killer nutburger.  Everything on the menu comes with fresh garden goodies like sprouts, lettuce and tomato.  They also have a great selection for kids — grilled cheese, quesadillas, and peanut butter and honey sandwiches. Watch out little ones! Mom and dad might not be able to resist sneaking a bite when you aren’t looking.

It takes a long time to get your food here and unless you hover like a vulture you probably won’t get a table or a parking spot, but that is just a testament to how popular this place is.  It has never kept me from coming back.
