Things to Always Have in Your….

Pantry

-Extra virgin olive oil (you can buy this in bulk at Costco/Sam’s Club/BJ’s)

-Coconut oil

-Vinegar (apple cider, red wine, balsamic)

-Pasta (our favorite is brown rice fusilli pasta, but any whole wheat option is great)

-Rice (short-grain brown rice is yummy) & Quinoa

→You have to try black rice, too (Credits to Weezie’s roommate for introducing us to this product)

-Granola (look for low-sugar content or make your own! Recipes TBA)

-Superfoods (chia seed, flax seed, hemp seed, etc.)

-Nuts (walnuts, pistachios, almonds, cashews, pecans)

-Oatmeal (old-fashioned or steel-cut — stay away from the kind that takes 30 min to make)

-Nut butter (any natural peanut butter, almond butter, cashew butter, etc)

-Protein bars (Clif, Rise, RX, Lara, etc)

-Bread, pita, wraps, etc.

-Bananas

Fridge

-Veggies (try to have at least 3 of these available for the week)

-Broccoli, Brussels Sprouts, Spinach, Kale, Arugula, Bell peppers, Chopped garlic, Cucumber, Carrots

-Sprouts (for sandwiches)

-Fruit (berries can get expensive… so pick your favorite & store them for the week!)

-Meat sources (remember… the less legs, the better)

→Chicken (to save $$, buy the full chicken breasts & slice them thin yourself. If you don’t have that kind of time, the thin-cut breasts or tenders work as well)

→Lean ground beef or turkey (either makes for great tacos, meat sauce, or burgers)

→Deli meat & cheese (our favorite combo is roasted turkey & provolone cheese)

→Fish (tilapia, salmon, & shrimp are awesome)

-Eggs

-Milk or nut milk (if you drink nut milk, go for the unsweetened kind to avoid any added sugars)

-Greek yogurt (go for the 2%… it’s way creamier & tastier, & a great way to get in healthy fat!)

-Hummus

-Grainy mustard

Freezer

-Bread

-Extra protein

-Fruit (berries & bananas for smoothies)

→TIP: wait until your bananas start to ripen (brown), & then peel them & put them in the freezer for your smoothies & shakes!
