Groceries I Keep on Hand

I had a special reader suggestion 2 weeks about what groceries I keep on hand. Since we just moving in and starting from scratch I thought now would be the perfect time to share. Here we go: (PS: Where I keep my food is MESSY. I warned you 🙂 )

017

Fridge:

  • Plain Greek Yogurt (Big Tub – I use this as sour cream, mayonnaise for my tuna fish and of course yogurt with berries & agave)
  • Unsweetened Almond Milk (I only use milk in cereal, oatmeal etc so you can’t beat 30 calories a cup)
  • Carton of Egg Whites (Use in protein pancakes, omelets, healthy baking)
  • Eggs
  • Chocolate Coconut Water – For those days you’re feeling extra parched
  • Unsweetened Applesauce – healthy baking or snack
  • Fat Free Feta – Salad Topper
  • Tofu – Protein of Choice
  • English Muffins – They last longer in the fridge
  • Marinara Sauce – Yes, I buy store-bought
  • Vegetable Broth – You can use this in a lot of meals
  • Sugar Free Jelly
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Pickles –  for Tuna Fish & Burgers
  • BBQ Sauce – We use this A LOT
  • Greek Dressing – Natural
  • Turkey & Cheese – To make sandwiches for Adam every morning
  • Vegetables – Zucchini ( i use this as pasta or roast them for salads/dinner) , Cucumbers (salads) , Sweet Onion (caramelize for salads and/or soups/chilis) , Asparagus (favorite side dish) & Sweet Potatoes (home fries, sweet potato fries, roast, sweet mashed potatoes etc) (I buy all of this EVERY time I go to the store..sometimes more)
  • Fruit – Strawberries & Apples (Apple a day keeps the doctor away!)
  • Romaine Lettuce & Spinach ( Salads and omelet add-in)

019

Freezer:

  • Turkey Meatballs (Adam)
  • Meatless Meatballs (So Easy to throw in Pasta)
  • Veggie Burgers

  • Vegetables – Spinach, Broccoli, Green Beans ( easy to throw in a dish)
  • Fruit – Strawberries, Blueberries & Bananas (Smoothies!)

023

Spices:

I cook every meal at home with the exception of usually Saturday night dinners which we enjoy out at a restaurant so we might carry a bit more food on hand than another couple. But if you are looking to start keeping healthy foods on hand – I hope this helps!

Now I think I have some cleaning of cabinets to do…

Questions: What are a couple of things you buy every week at the grocery store?
