No-Cook Foods at Costco & Trader Joes

no cook foods costco trader joes

Cooking Is Cancelled and today we’re showcasing foods from Costco & Trader Joe’s Guide that are fast, easy, and require minimal (if any) cooking at all!

Both grocery stores have tons of healthy food options that just require a quick microwave or stovetop sizzle in a pan, so I wanted to share some of our favorite go-to’s lately, cuz life has been busy (:

I know this is a busy and stressful time for a lot of people right now between kids going back to school, college classes starting, etc etc – so hopefully these food ideas can help some of y’all, too! 

No-Cook Foods at Trader Joe’s:

  • Mahi Mahi Burgers
  • Shrimp Burgers
  • Chimichurri Chicken Thigh Skewers
  • Sweet Apple Chicken Sausages
  • Chicken Meatballs
  • Frozen Veggie Medleys


No-Cook Foods at Costco:
  • Don Lee Farms Chicken Patties
  • Perfect Bars
  • Naked Fruit Smoothies
  • Noka Smoothie Packs
  • Pacific Gold Jerky
  • Make Veggies Great Again Chocolate Raspberry Muffins
  • Mush Overnight Oats
  • Kind Bars
  • Kettle BBQ Chips
  • Chicken Nuggets (I showed Sprouts since CA Costco’s don’t carry Golden Platter brand)
