Looking for a freezer foods and pantry staples list? These freezer and pantry staples will help you make nutritious meals in absolutely no time at all.
No time to head to the grocery store? This is a common issue I hear among clients. And I have to
tell you: Even I skip weeks of grocery shopping. Yup, you heard that right, a dietitian admitting she doesn't grocery shop every single week. I travel a lot, and so there are
days I come back from trips and make meals out of what's in my freezer and pantry until I have time to restock. And yes, all of these staples are processed foods, even if minimally so.
So what makes one processed food better than another? By the end of this week's newsletter, you'll know the answer. I'm giving you a list of dietitian-approved freezer foods, pantry staples, healthy snacks, and convenience foods so you can grocery shop with ease. Now when you're having a busy day or week, there's absolutely no excuse to order takeout every single night. Just take ten minutes or less to whip up a quick, easy meal with long-lasting staples in your pantry and freezer. Score!
