Pantry Basics


One of the biggest obstacles to not eating well is not having the basic building blocks to make delicious meals when you get home starving and need food ASAP.

We recently did a pantry revamp of one of our naturopathy clients and realised that a list of pantry/fridge/freezer basics is necessary!

Below is our pantry basics list.

It seems like a lot but you only need small quantities of each and they are also ingredients that do not need replacing regularly (unless you run out of course!).

Pantry basics:

Olive oil

Coconut oil

Flaxseed oil

Apple cider vinegar

Balsamic vinegar

Tahini

Peanut butter

Brown rice

Soba noodles

Pasta - non-gluten if necessary

Quinoa

Quinoa flakes

Non-gluten flour - quinoa, buckwheat, coconut

Coconut flakes

Protein powder

Flaxseeds

Oats

Raw Nuts - almonds, walnuts, cashews, pecans, macadamias

Seeds - sesame, pepitas, pine nuts, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, chia

Dried pulses - lentils, chickpeas, beans

Dates

Tomato paste

Can tomatoes/corn

Coconut cream

Non-milk alternatives - almond, coconut

Maple syrup

Honey

Rice Malt Syrup

Stock cubes - vegetable/chicken/beef

Herbal Tea

Coffee

Cacao powder

Cacao nibs

Spices:

Turmeric

Cumin

Curry powder

Paprika

Cinnamon

Curry powder

Ground ginger

Fridge:

Eggs

Tofu

Cashew Butter

Hummus

Cheese - if eating dairy

Pickled vegetables - sauerkraut, ginger etc.

Freezer:

Berries - you can purchase when cheap during the year and wash and freeze for smoothies

Bananas - peel soft bananas and store in freezer and these can be added to smoothies, used for recipes (banana bread anyone?!) or even used to make non-dairy ice cream!

Veggies - always handy to have some frozen veggies as a back up

Edamame - a great high protein snack or an amazing entree

Leftovers - we always freeze any food that is leftover as it can make a quick chuck together lunch at some point!

Ice cubes - necessary for smoothies, to pop into drinks and sometimes we even squeeze our lemons into them to give our water some excitement!

Remember it is always important to store all of your ingredients correctly ideally in glass canisters or jars to prevent spoilage.
