Grocery + Pantry Staples

I’ll be honest: We grocery shop way too much. It’s always been a frequent affair in our house, but now that we’ve moved one minute away from a store, the shopping just keeps on coming. Not that I’m complaining 😉

It’s actually better to shop for less, more often. It takes up less room, and you always have fresh ingredients on hand! I’m a happy camper when we have an abundance of fresh produce, bread, dairy and lean proteins. I hate despise running out of anything.

ImageIf you’re lucky enough to have access to a farmer’s market, TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT! You will be supporting local farms and businesses while getting top-quality products. 

So without further ado, here are the products that I simply cannot live without!


  • Sugar snap peas
  • Baby Carrots
  • Tomatoes
  • Spinach
  • Strawberries
  • Pink lady apples
  • Bananas


  • 2% plain greek yogurt (Oikos <– No chobani for this gal)
  • 2% milk
  • 2% plain cottage cheese
  • Mozzarella cheese
  • Laughing cow original wedge


Why must you be so behind the times, Canada. WHY? 😦


  • Skinless, boneless chicken breast
  • Lean pork chops
  • Extra lean ground turkey
  • Sliced deli turkey


  • Whole wheat english muffins
  • Whole grain bread
  • Tortillas


  • Crunchy peanut butter
  • Almonds
  • Pistachios
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla whey protein powder
  • Luna bars

So, obviously we don’t keep all of these things stocked, all the time. But if we have most of them, I literally feel like a queen. I think the key to eating healthy is to keep foods you like on hand, at all times. That way, you aren’t stuck with a ham sandwich for lunch + dinner because you forgot to shop.

Hope everybody has a thriving Thursday! <– I couldn’t think of another adjective. I blame biology.
