Most Nutritious Items to Stock in Your Pantry

A well-stocked pantry can make meal preparation healthier and easier. Keep your pantry or cupboards stocked with the following go-to foods:

Low-sodium tuna – An excellent source of protein and heart healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
Dried lentils – Protein-rich, easy to cook and can be incorporated into a variety of main dishes, soups and salads.
Quinoa – A whole grain rich in protein, quick and easy to make and tastes good hot or cold.
Unsalted nuts and nut butters – Provide a simple snack option full of protein and healthy fat.
Dried fruit – First you want to try to have seasonal fruit, as it will have better flavor and be more nutritious and usually less expensive. Preferably choose dried fruits as they do not contain added sugar.
