My Food Staples

Looking through to see what we need in the kitchen for a healthy week. A few things I always have are…

Unsweetened Almond Milk.  If you haven’t switched, do it now! Nutritious and way less sugar than milk. Great for shakes and everything else.

Boiled Eggs. EZ to add with a quick breakfast, anytime snack, and great for adding  protein to your salad.

Almonds.  Always have Almonds in the car, you never know when hunger will strike! 20=1 oz

Coconut Water. Not a trend, it’s really good for you. Natural electrolytes, great for post workout – hydrates you quickly. Don’t drink too much, it’s all about servings sizes!

Quinoa and Couscous. Fast and EZ side to have at home for a dinner side dish, or use as a bed for your salad at lunch. Make a ton and reheat it. I like to add a drizzle of whatever salad dressing I have to easily flavor it (usually olive oil and garlic or a raspberry vinaigrette).

Apples. EZ to grab and go, great with Peanut Butter, kids like it, just simply awesome.

Chicken and Salmon: Always have these ready to go for the week. I buy individually wrapped and frozen Salmon Fillets. Chicken is fresh and ready to grill for salad topping or to put on my quinoa. I make an extra salmon fillet for my lunch the next day.

Peanut Butter. The only ingredient in Peanut Butter is….. Peanuts! Unsalted are becoming more popular but can be hard to find. Great to add in my chocolate protein shake. A little goes a long way.

Lemons.  I have a water pitcher with lemon slices in it, I refill it throughout the week. Too EZ.

Zucchini and Squash. My favorite Veggies. I add nothing to them, just steamed and they’re awesome.

Tea.  I have a ton of Green Tea throughout the week. If I ever go to Starbucks in the afternoon I don’t get coffee, I get an Unsweetened Iced Green Tea, you should do the same!
