I’m not one for the bitter cold (like it was in Delaware today). I was so thankful to have my freezer stocked because that’s where dinner came from. I made tuna steak with cauliflower rice and broccoli. Keeping things simple is the best route. I dipped the tuna in coconut aminos mixed with a little sir Kensington’s mayo. Delicious!
With two small kids, the grocery store isn’t my favorite place. I buy most of the same stuff regularly and stock my pantry and freezer to eliminate multiple trips. Theres nothing more frustrating than trying to look at “sell by” dates while the kids are throwing things in the cart or fighting over who’s driving the cart car. (Which is almost harder to push than it is to parallel park). Anyway, I have several things I keep in my pantry or fridge/freezer at all times. It makes it much easier to come up with something for dinner when you actually have stuff that isn’t going bad anytime soon.
Diced tomatoes (usually on deal)
Nuts (cashews, almonds, macadamia nuts)
No sugar added almond butter
Almond flour (bobs red mill)
Tapioca flour (Anthony’s goods)
Pure Maple Syrup
Sir Kensington’s Mayo
Franks hot sauce
Unsweetened cocoa powder (Anthony’s goods)
Unsweetened coconut milk
No sugar added tomato sauce (Raos)
Frozen cauliflower rice
Frozen meat (pork chops, shrimp, chicken, ground meat)
No sugar added (check labels) chicken broth
(Fresh veggies that I always grab)
This list is actually longer than I intended. It’s accurate though, I keep my pantry stocked because there’s so many recipes that call for a lot of the same ingredients. Most of the time I use fresh meat and veggies but I always keep something frozen in case I don’t make it out.
Here’s some recipes I’ve tried that you can make from these ingredients.
Sloppy joes (I replace the paleo ketchup with a 6oz can of tomato paste. That makes it cleanse approved)
