Whether you have dietary limitations or are learning to eat correctly, you should always have these ingredients in your kitchen. Since they occur in weekly recipes, pantry and refrigerator staples should be available in a pinch.
Brown and wild rice are healthful grains for cooking. Brown rice is rich in B vitamins, magnesium, and potassium. Its high fiber content promotes digestion and stabilizes blood sugar.
Regular spaghetti is heavy in carbs and not a healthy pantry staple. Lentil pasta is perfect for spaghetti and meatballs.
No matter the diet, fresh produce is vital. Use diverse produce to cook or snack raw. Fruits and vegetables frozen longer retain their nutritional value.
Olive oil on food is a fantastic way to get 20%–35% of your calories from healthy fats. Sauté meat and vegetables or bake potatoes with it. A dish's flavors are enhanced by extra virgin olive oil.
Keep beans on hand for another multipurpose cooking item. They are gluten-free, high-protein, plant-based, and may be used in many dishes.
Weight loss is successful when eating more protein than the recommended 48-56 g per day, according to clinical investigations. For one, it's rewarding. Eating leaner, healthier animal protein like chicken is vital.
