It’s a new year and your resolutions to eat better are in full swing. When you get to the grocery store, what do you do? Bring a list and spend $100 to make all the recipes in your new diet book or stick with the staples you know work for your lifestyle?
When I have a busy month or week coming up, I only put foods in my basket that are not going to go bad and I know how to cook. I hate when I have to throw out good produce and this happens often when I get over excited about complex recipes from the latest book. I love Kris Carr but her recipes are intricate! Starting a vegan diet takes a lot of time and research at first.
I partnered with Green Giant – one of my favorite companies for frozen veggies on a budget – to bring you this grocery haul for staple items to keep in a healthy kitchen. We also included a few of my favorite swaps at the end. If you are craving BBQ potato chips, we have a healthier alternative to that. Can’t stick to one serving of trail mix? Yep, a healthy swap is included in that too.
For more recipes using Green Giant items, check out their Giant Difference site, including this Crunchy Corn with Kale and Chicken Slaw. These recipes are awesome for when you don’t have a ton of produce on hand.
What is one item that you ALWAYS have on hand in your fridge or freezer?
