A healthy lifestyle starts at home, and stocking up your pantry with clean ingredients is a gr8 way to establish a wellness-based lifestyle from the inside out. We put together a list of eight pantry staples that we keep stocked in our pantries year-round, all of which are versatile and can be used in a variety of healthy and delicious ways.
Read on for eight healthy pantry staples, and as always, stay #hungryforgr8ness!
1. Nut Butter
Whether you’re more of an almond butter lover or you opt for cashew butter or keep things classic with peanut butter, we encourage you to stock up on nut butters for all occasions! Slather some on a banana, add a dollop to your smoothie bowl, or incorporate nut butters into your fave baking recipes – there are a TON of ways to enjoy nut butters!
Coconut oil, olive oil and avocado oil are a few of our favorite cooking and baking oils. These healthy sources of fats add delicious flavor to salads, baking and cooking and are always nifty to have on hand.
Chia seeds, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds – plant your way to a healthy lifestyle by stocking up on these small yet powerful ingredients.
Honey (or maple syrup, agave or date nectar if you are vegan) is a natural sweetener with health benefits that we love to keep on hand for everything from our evening tea, to a smoothie bowl and #toasttuesday topping!
5. Spices & Herbs
Transform simple dishes and drinks from simple to savory (or sweet!) with a little spice. We love to include everything from chai spices to savory spices like turmeric and cayenne pepper, so that we’re prepared for all occasions.
Our gr8nola superfood granola flavors are a delicious and practical snack to keep on hand for breakfast, as a snack or in your favorite recipes! We have bulk options for the big-time granola eaters and families, as well as standard bags and even mini packs for on-the-go snacking.
7. Non-Dairy Milks
Macadamia milk, almond milk, hemp milk, coconut milk – there are a ton of non-dairy milks that you can keep stored in your pantry for future usage. Purchase your favorites in advance so that you’re never short on non-dairy milk when you pour up a late night bowl of cereal or test out another baking recipe!
8. Dark Chocolate Chips
If you’re anything like us, chocolate is an absolute essential ingredient to your lifestyle. ;) Luckily for us all, dark chocolate is known for its antioxidant health properties when consumed in moderation, which is why we keep a bag or two of these babies in our pantries at all times!
