stockable staples – add these to your grocery list

The “scope creep” on the barren grocery shelves is real. It’s all too easy to succumb to the temptation of buying more when you see supplies dwindling.  But here’s my encouragement to you… buy less of what truly counts.

And here’s what I mean: instead of fearfully buying too much of one thing consider diversifying your at home stores using the list of items I’ve put together for you below.

Obviously fresh vegetables + fruits + proteins take precedence over the shelf stable alternatives but in a pinch, the items listed below are great to have on hand for easy assembly-based dinners.

Print the list out, tuck it in your back pocket and when you find any of them online or on the go, grab one or two knowing it will store well and be put to good use.

BEFORE SHOPPING

  • check your spice cabinet; there aren’t any herbs and spices on the list, so add any you want to restock
  • check your salt – cooking without salt is a major bummer, plus you want to keep your electrolytes up
  • take stock of what you already have in your fridge and pantry; leave some for the next shopper

STOCK YOUR PANTRY

proteins

  • canned fish [sardines, salmon and tuna [Wild Planet is one of my favorite brands]]
  • beef jerky
  • Applegate turkey pepperoni
