Trader Joe’s: 11 worst buys and their smarter alternatives

Felina’s Opinion: I would always prefer to pay a slightly higher price for particular items from Trader Joe’s that I know I would actually enjoy than pay less elsewhere and up not liking it, which in fact has actually occurred. I love certain other items that Whole Foods has to offer and certainly would not trade the items over for others at another store. Most people enjoy what they favor for reasons known only to them. Anyone is welcome to challenge their loyalty to what they like but I can almost guarantee that shoppers will always choose to like various items from various stores even if they have to pay a little more to enjoy it!  Felina Silver Robinson


Losing weight isn’t easy. There are many steps to getting there. I fight a daily battle myself. Giving birth to six amazing children while also suffering six miscarriages takes a toll on a womans body. Many of wish we could just blink our eyes and the weight would just melt away. This is far-fetched and unrealistic. So we look for articles to read, food to eat and any type of exercise that will help bring the weight down and hopefully keep it off. No one thing will work on its own.  I would like to share with you some articles and recipes that will at least educate you and help you decide what’s next in your fight to stay “fit and healthy”.  Good Luck! Felina Silver Robinson
