Stock a healthier pantry
Whether you’re moving into your first home or feeding a family,
we have tips to make loading up your pantry a whole lot simpler.
Check out this list of what to stock up on—and what to skip—
when putting together your pantry.
Look for whole grains, including whole-grain cereal, quinoa, old-fashioned oats, and whole-grain pasta. Research shows a connection between whole grains and improved health, such as a lower risk of heart disease.
Convenient nonperishable items make life easier, but go for reduced-sodium options. For example, when purchasing canned fruits and
veggies, choose ones that have no salt added or are canned in water.
Spices and sweeteners
Spices are freebies—they can help add a kick to your recipes without adding calories. Load up on these—they’re a game-changer!
Condiments and cooking oils
Canola and olive oils are more heart-friendly and deliver beneficial fats. In addition, grab some salsa, vinegar, and tahini to add flavor to your meals.
Keep easy, healthier snacks on hand like nuts, pumpkin and sunflower seeds, popcorn, dried fruit, and whole-grain crackers.
