How to Stock a Healthy Pantry

Beans and Legumes. Stock your pantry with various beans and legumes such as quninoa, millet, lentils, black beans, oats, pinto beans and brown rice. Quinoa is a great plant protein and perfect for vegans or meat-eaters.

Dried Fruit. I love to have a variety of dried fruits on hand. They are perfect for my granola and energy balls I like to make and ready for quick snacking. Raisins, cranberries and apricots are great to start.

Frozen Food. Stock your freezer with a variety of fruits and vegetables. These are great for adding to meals or use the fruit in a healthy smoothie. I always keep lots of fresh fruit on hand too.

Fresh Produce. I always have plenty of fresh produce on hand including lots of onions and potatoes for cooking. We also grow fresh produce in our garden.

Dairy. Try low-fat or skim milk for a healthier option. My son loves milk but I do have to limit his intake. A plain Greek yogurt is a great choice and I love adding these to my green juice every morning.

Spices. I always have lots of spices on hand. Be sure you go through your spices every year and replace out dated ones. I love to buy these in bulk at the local Amish store. I usually create my own blends such as steak and hamburger seasonings.

Get rid of those fatty, unhealthy chips!

Oils and Vinegars. Extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil are used often in my household. I also have these each in a cooking spray that is handy to have on hand. Be sure you stock a variety of vingars too.

Condiments. Use low-fat condiments when you can and be sure to watch the sugar intake. For example, try a sugar-free ketchup and olive oil, low-fat mayonnaise. I always have salsa on hand that I have canned. I love the fresher taste!

Grains. Have a variety of flours, pasta and breadcrumbs in your pantry. If you can make your own pasta, that’s even better. I always make my own breadcrumbs with my food processor too.

Get rid of those sugary cereals!

    We have fruit a lot in our home. Not only is fruit great & healthy to eat by itself, but I also put it in cereals, oatmeal, yogurt, jello, etc. so I can have varieties & make some foods naturally sweet, because I’m a Diabetic & need to eat healthier! This is a great list – THANKS!!

    I have tried to save enough for that of other items when shopping, so I might skip a few meals and in place have just a piece fruit or vegetable. But I love this post as it is very clear of the healthy benefit of maintaining your body status when eating nutritious foods!
