The 10 ingredients I always have in my kitchen, so I can make a nourishing meal even without a trip to the store
Life gets busy. You don’t have time to cook. You don’t have the energy to cook. I get it. But you don’t have to resort to takeout time and time again.
To keep me from constantly using UberEats, I keep these 10 ingredients in my kitchen. What 10 ingredients? These 10 ingredients:
Frozen Fruit & Vegetables
Frozen fruit is perfect for smoothies. I also love to put some frozen fruit (cherries are great for this!) in a bowl and let sit out for about 15 minutes; and I eat it for a sweet snack or even after dinner.
Frozen veggies are great for casseroles, soups, frittatas (defrost/cook first), cooked & covered in sauce, in quesadillas.
Roasted Garlic Cauliflower Soup
Good Luck Greens Soup
Chicken Quesadilla (cook the veggies in a skillet and add to the quesadilla)
Beef and Vegetable Soup
Strawberry Kiwi Smoothie
Wild Blueberry Limeade Smoothie
Berry White Tea Smoothie
Mango Green Tea Smoothie
Salsa is my all time favorite condiment/sauce/seasoning/etc. I put it over eggs, on tacos, on chicken or tuna, everything!
Eggs are super versatile! They’re great for breakfast, snacks, and quick dinners.
Oats are for more than just oatmeal. You can make pancakes, cookies, granola, and more.

Nut Butter (or Seed Butter)
Peanut butter will always be my favorite but any nut or seed butter is great to have. You can eat as a snack, add to smoothies, use for the base of a sauce, or drizzle over desserts or breakfast.
Canned beans keep in the pantry for a while and can be added to tons of dishes to give extra fiber and plant-based protein.

Pasta sauce can make an almost instant meal. It can also be used as the base of a soup, ingredient in casseroles, for pizza sauce, and more.
Any and all pastas are great in my opinion. Look for a whole grain (whole wheat, quinoa, brown rice, lentil, black beans, chickpea, etc.) to get more fiber and nutrients.
High quality protein and omega 3 fatty acids that are great for your hair, skin, nails, heart and more in one can.
Onions & Potatoes
These last on your counter for a few weeks before going bad. Make sure not to store them together though because the gases from onions can cause the potatoes to sprout and go bad faster.
