Welcome! I am so happy you chose to gather around my table. My name is Mia Swinehart and I am a registered dietitian with a passion for simple healthy recipes, women's hormonal health, and overall wellness!
I thought it was about time I share a post on my pantry staples! While I eat tons of whole, fresh foods- I also rely on my pantry daily! Below is a list of different foods I like to have on hand year-round.
I write this as we’re in the midst of a pandemic, and pantry staples are more on our mind than ever. These are all items I love to have on hand year -round, though. These pantry staples can be what take a delicious meal to the next level, and can be so helpful to have in your kitchen!
You can make super simple meals out of these goods, while tossing in any fresh or frozen produce you have on hand, plus a protein if you want it! Simplicity is key in the kitchen, but I love to experiment and get creative with what I have in my kitchen.
This can essentially be used as a grocery list! You, of course, do not need everything on this list at once. You can supplement with proteins and fresh produce that you have access to, as well!
Some of my favorite meals to whip up with pantry staples are pasta (my go-to sauce is my creamy vegan tomato sauce) and soup (toss any veggie you have in some broth to simmer. Start by sautéing onion and garlic in oil if you have some! You can make a quite nourishing meal with what you have- trust yourself in the kitchen!
This list is straightforward and to the point, and it contains all of my favorite basics. I hope you find this helpful! xo
