The 5 Healthy Products we Always Have on Hand
Updated: Apr 23, 2019
Stocking your pantry with superfood staples ensures that healthy eating will be easier and more convenient than ever before! Here are 5 of our must-have kitchen staples.
1. Organic Grains
Feel full and satisfied by incorporating lots of healthy, whole grains into your diet. Start the day off with a overnight blueberry muffin, enjoy quinoa tabbouleh at lunch or compliment your favorite soup recipe with freshly-baked bread.
2. Leafy Greens
Get your daily greens in with ease. Pack kale or spinach into your go-to smoothie, add mixed greens into your lunchtime grain bowl, or throw some chard into a warming soup. When paired with protein and fats, greens can not only be delicious but satisfying.
3. Simple Sauce Bases
If we're being honest, all foods are nothing more than a vehicle for our favorite sauces...Ditch the overly-processed packaged dressings for healthy creations you can make at home. Look for these products to create incredibly satisfying sauce bases: tahini, almond butter, EVOO, coconut aminos, fresh lemon juice and no-sugar-added coconut yogurt.
4. Sweet Potatoes
Sweet potatoes are one of the most deliciously-versatile vegetables out there. Steam it to smother over your favorite slice of whole grain toast, roast it with warming root veggies, eat it cold in a salad, or even juice it! Enjoy the many variations of this affordable staple throughout the year.
5. Low-Sodium Vegetable Broth
Vegetable broth is not only a great base for healthy, plant-based soups but it can also act as a great substitute to oil when sauteing vegetables! Use it to pack more flavor into your favorite whole grains, too. Opting for low sodium is not only better for your health, but also prevents your dishes from becoming overwhelmed by salt.
