Household Staples!

  • Nut Butter (Sunflower Butter, Peanut Butter & Co. all varieties, Naturally More Flaxseed Peanut Butter, Barney Butter Squeeze Packs)
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Sweet Potato (with Chili Powder!!!)
  • Whole Grain Crackers (Back to Nature Stone Ground Wheat and Flaxseed are the best!!!)
  • Yogurt (Oikos 0% Plain is awesome for both sweet and savory.  Great to make dips, dressings and marinades, but also perfect for parfaits and cereal)
  • Almond Breeze or Unsweetened Coconut Milk (I tend to buy Almond Breeze the most, but I do enjoy Silk, as well)
  • Reduced Sugar Ketchup
  • 96/4 Ground Beef (I always keep this on hand to make sauce, chili, homemade burgers, nachos, etc.  I am a beef girl all the way!!!)
  • Boneless Skinless Breast of Chicken
  • Shrimp and Fish
  • Kashi Frozen Meals (I am obsessed with Pesto Primavera right now! and this is super easy to pack for work)
  • Kashi Pita Chips (The plain are good, salsa flavor is AMAZING!)
  • Clif Bars/Clif Mojo (all varieties…Ryan and I both love these if we know we won’t be able to have a meal for a while)
  • Lara Bars (Peanut Butter and Jelly, Peanut Butter Cookie…I love my peanut butter 🙂 )
  • Luna Bars (Chocolate Dipped Coconut, anyone?!)
  • Nuts (Emerald Sweet and Salty Chocolate Peanut Butter, Honey Roasted Blue Diamond, Salt and Vinegar, Habenero BBQ)
  • Cereals (Trader Joes Brand anything, Kashi Go Lean Crunch, Plain Shredded Wheat, Basic 4…Ryan’s new favorite)
  • Oatmeal
  • Eggs (we go through a dozen or two every week!)
  • Bagel Thins and Thomas’ Breakfast Bread (Blueberry and Cinnamon Raisin make great Nut Butter and Jelly sammies!)

*These are just a few of the things I try to keep on hand at all times to throw together quick and easy meals! Feel free to share some of your standards!!
