If you thought this post was going to be all about food processors and julienne peelers, then I am sorry to disappoint you. Whilst they are definitely on my list of kitchen essentials (along with my George Foreman grill and my slow cooker), this post is about the food that I have to keep in my kitchen.
I am sure I don’t need to tell you, but maybe you need reminding, that a well stocked kitchen is so important to getting healthy and losing weight. By well stocked, I don’t mean with a lifetime supply of Oreos, I mean with your favourite healthy foods that you can make delicious meals with that will stop you calling the pizza guy every night.
I thought it might be helpful if I shared with you the 20 ingredients that I can’t live without and I would definitely be taking them to a desert island with me. Having these foods in my kitchen means that I have something to grab after a workout or when I want a snack and I can easily whip up a healthy meal when inspiration to create a new recipe is lacking.
- A whole roasted chicken
- Bananas (some in the freezer)
- A selection of dried beans (pinto, black, cannellini)
- Milk (skimmed and almond)
- Frozen salmon fillets
- Nut butter
- Olive oil
- Wholewheat pasta
- Canned tomatoes
- Sweet potatoes
- Some kind of cheese (usually feta or mozzarella)
- A good selection of dried herbs and spices
- A selection of tea
Of course that is not ALL I have in my kitchen, but they are my essentials and things I always try keep replenished.
