Guide to Stocking Your Pantry

What to keep on hand to make cooking a delicious, nutritious meal easy every night of the week.

The best way to ensure you have everything you need to prepare delicious meals is to keep a well-stocked pantry. When you cook at home you can prepare healthy, nourishing food using quality, fresh ingredients—much better than prepared food that is often loaded with calories, fats, sodium and added sweeteners.

Freezer Basics

  • Fruit-juice concentrates (orange, apple, pineapple)
  • Frozen vegetables: edamame soy beans, peas, spinach, broccoli, bell pepper and onion mix, corn, chopped onions, small whole onions, uncooked hash browns
  • Frozen berries
  • Italian turkey sausage and sliced prosciutto to flavor fast pasta sauces
  • Low-fat vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt for impromptu dessert
