Ever find yourself staring into your fridge, wondering how on earth you're going to put together a healthy meal without fresh ingredients? I know we've all been there, especially when a trip to the grocery store is overdue. The thought of healthy cooking without fresh fruits and vegetables may seem daunting, but it is possible! Instead of turning to take-out, stock up on nonperishable pantry staples like canned goods and spices so you'll always be ready to cook something quick, simple and healthy. I always have a supply of certain staples on hand just in case.
