I’m going to write about my June 20th appearance on the 700 Club next week, but here is a link if you’d like to see the interview. Thanks for all your wonderful support!
I was looking in my refrigerator the other day, and besides noticing that it really needs to be taken apart and cleaned, I thought about how there are certain things I always have on hand, both in the refrigerator and in the pantry.
I’ve found that having certain staples in the pantry or in my refrigerator means that I’m rarely caught in the “I don’t have any food” syndrome, which used to send me running to the nearest fast food restaurant in search of a quick fix. And unfortunately, even after I visited the restaurant, I still didn’t have any food to make good meals quickly and easily.
Over time I’ve learned that there are certain things I should always have on hand, and sadly, chocolate cookies aren’t one of them! Here 20 pantry/refrigerator staples that I almost always have on hand.
- Spices and Condiments
- Brown Rice or whatever you like
- Frozen Veggies
- Canned Veggies
- Canned Fruits
- Canned Tomatoes
- Dried Fruits
- Peanut Butter/Nuts
- Sweet Potatoes
- Greek Yogurt
- Lean Meat of your choosing
- Healthy oil
There were other things on my list, but I tried to narrow it down to the main ones. Planning and preparation are two words we just can’t seem to get away from in this journey. Why? Because planning and preparation can often times save you from making choices you will instantly regret!
Trust me, I’ve been there more times than I can count.
Question: What are a few things that you always have on hand? Diane
