All whole nuts are fine for the Med-diet, but Trader Joe's marcona truffle almonds are our favorite for when we need salt in the middle of the afternoon.
When these tasty treats are around, we promise you won't even want that bag of potato chips.
It's okay to eat some dairy on the Mediterranean diet.
Plain Greek yogurt is our favorite because it's high in protein and low in sugar.
Small peppers, cucumber slices, jicama, baby carrots, endives, and radishes are some of our favorite vegetables to eat with hummus.
Most likely, you can find all of these at your local store. Also, Trader Joe's always has new and interesting kinds of hummus, like chicken, roasted garlic.
Would you like a sweet snack? We love TJ's dried apricots because they don't have any extra sugar or chemicals added to them.
They're so tasty that you can eat them by themselves or mix a few into a handful of nuts to make your own trail mix.
