8 Healthy Foods I Always Have In My Kitchen

  1. Greens - They're a quick and easy way to add volume and micronutrients to meals without adding a ton of calories so meals are more nutritious and filling! Want pizza? Pair it with a side salad to make it a balanced meal!

  2. Frozen Veggies - Quick and easy way to get micronutrients. For dinners, the last thing I want to do after a busy day is to make an elaborate meal. Frozen veggies make it simple to add to a quick dinner.

  3. Fruit - Usually I always have frozen berries on hand (fresh when they're in season) and also bananas. I love having smoothies in the morning and they're yummy on top of oats or as a side for a meal. Berries are anti-inflammatory, too!

  4. Lean Protein - We don't eat beef in our house, so we always have plenty of chicken breast and ground turkey. Occasionally we also have fish or shrimp.

  5. Tortillas/Wraps/Pitas - Another easy and versatile way to add carbs to a meal. We make pita pizzas, or wraps/burritos. You can also use them for tacos or fajitas. Opt for the whole wheat version and you're also getting extra fiber and some whole grains.

  6. Peanut butter/nuts - So I'm a huge fan of peanut butter and could eat it by the spoonful, but it just so happens it's also a healthy fat. Put it on your tortilla, pair it with fruit, scoop it onto your oatmeal, or top your rice cakes with it. You have so many options!

  7. Oats - They are such an easy way to get fiber and whole grains. You can put some in your smoothie to add some carbs or just make overnight oats or oatmeal. My favorite right now is oatmeal with protein powder, a few chocolate chips, peanut butter, and topped with bananas.

  8. Nonfat Greek Yogurt - Another item that can be added to or substituted for so many things. I add it to my smoothie, you can also stir it into your yogurt for extra protein. You can top it with fruit or use it as a substitute for mayo or sour cream for extra protein and less fat!
