As we practice social distancing, it’s also a good time to limit making frequent trips to the grocery store! Efficiently stocking your pantry and going into the store with a plan is the best way to do it. By buying smart, we can also limit shortages of food + panic, and leave enough for everyone to enjoy! <3
See below for a list of essentials for your pantry:
PASTA: Pasta is a great non-perishable food to keep on hand right now. I love to keep a few options in my pantry (long and short) to switch it up!
RICE: Brown, white, long-grain, quinoa, I always like to have them on hand! Rice is so versatile – there’s endless possibilities so you won’t get bored!
BEANS: I keep both dried beans and canned beans stocked up! They’re great in soups, to eat on their own and a good source of both proteins and carbs.
EGGS: One of my faves! They’re a great addition to SO many dishes and also stand on their own. They keep for a long time in the fridge too!
FROZEN FRUITS + VEGETABLES: The perfect addition to smoothies – I love mango, mixed berries and pineapple! For vegetables, they’re great in soups/stews and stir-fries. I like to keep frozen spinach, kale, and mixed veg on hand.
CANNED FISH: One of my favourite non-perishable protein source to add to salads
GARLIC, SHALLOT + ONIONS: They make every meal THAT much better. Plus, they’re filled with so many immune boosting properties.
HOT SAUCE: To keep things SPICY and flavourful.
NUT BUTTER: No pantry is complete without your favourite nut butter. You can use it for salad dressings, baking, for snacking
TEA: Stock up on your favourite tea! They warm the soul.
