Apr 3 2020
Going to the grocery store less often these days? These pantry staples will come in handy! Here are 15+ recipes to liven up your at-home eating…

Pouched or Canned Tuna

Shelf-stable protein! Albacore is versatile and classic, but we’re also big fans of the seasoned tuna by StarKist.

Canned Beans

Add a little protein & fiber to salads, soups, stir-frys, and more. Keep things interesting with a nice variety: black beans, chickpeas, refried beans, chili beans… You get the picture!

Old-Fashioned Oats

Oatmeal rules -- it’s good for you and satiating, especially when you make it Hungry Girl style! Here are a few of our favorites: growing oatmeal, overnight oats, and oat bakes.

Canned Crushed Tomatoes

Step aside, canned tomato sauce. Crushed tomatoes are where it’s at! The texture is better, and there tends to be less salt involved. Use this for chili, pizza, skillet meals… Pretty much anywhere you’d use red sauce. Just add seasoning.

Whole-Grain Pasta

Have pasta in the house? Now is the time to cook it up! Add plenty of veggies (frozen will work) for larger portions.
