What’s in my Pantry?

GroceryEssentials

A co-worker asked me a while back to send her some healthy things that I like to keep in my apartment, so I was inspired to create a more comprehensive list than the ones I scribble out on in a notebook when I’m meal planning. Here’s what’s in my fridge/pantry:

  • Unsweetened vanilla almond milk — I use this as coffee “creamer”, in smoothies, oatmeal, etc.
  • Oikos vanilla Greek yogurt
  • Chobani plain greek yogurt — for dressings, baking, as a sour cream replacement, etc.
  • Strawberries, blueberries, kiwi — something I’m trying to do each week is fill up a big tupperware with fresh cut fruit so that it’s easily accessible. And it looks pretty!
  • Dole frozen mango — prob my fave fruit. Has to be frozen!
  • Kale/spinach/spring mix — for jar salads, to put in omelettes… I’ll also freeze some kale or spinach for green smoothies.
  • Bananas — I’ve been really into protein pancakes lately so these have become a staple. Also good to add in smoothies or make clean banana nut bread when they’re ripe!
  • Kodiak Powercakes pancake/waffle mix — tastes amazing & packed with whole grains
  • Almonds/walnuts
  • Chia/hemp seeds — I’ve been really into nuts & seeds lately. They add a great crunch to salads, oatmeal, smoothies & these are superfoods!
  • 100% cacao powder
  • Cacao nibs + Dark chocolate chips — for when I just need some REAL chocolate
  • PB2/natural peanut butter
  • Justin’s vanilla almond butter — new obsession!
  • All natural maple syrup
  • Frozen chicken breasts
  • Fresh salmon (occasionally)
  • Frozen shrimp
  • Lean ground turkey
  • Quinoa pasta — this is a new thing for me but LOVE it, tastes just like real whole grain pasta!!
  • Regular quinoa
  • Eggs/egg whites
  • Avocados — put a little bit of lime juice and sea salt on it and OMG it’s sooo good for an afternoon pick me up; also try sunflower seeds and honey on them!
  • Kind/Luna/Quest/Larabars
  • Agave/honey
  • Occasional healthy frozen meals like Amy’s or Kashi pizza & EVOL bowls — I’ve learned now to check the INGREDIENTS rather than the calories!
  • Zucchini/squash — fave veggies
  • Hummus
  • Whole wheat pitas or Ezekiel bread
  • Annie’s organic Papaya Poppyseed or Green Goddess salad dressings, if I don’t make my own
  • Unsweetened applesauce + whole wheat flour + baking powder for baking
  • Coconut/sesame/olive oil
  • Bare coconut chips when I can find them — sooo good!
  • Snap pea crisps if I’m craving something salty

What’s your fave healthy meal or snack?!
