Keeping your kitchen stocked with healthy options that require minimal prep makes meal prep easier and snack time healthier.
Here’s are tips for a pantry spring cleaning from Cabot’s Registered Dietitians:
- Spend some time cleaning out expired items and inventorying what you have on hand. This will set you up for being able to better plan out meals based on what’s in your kitchen already and what you need to restock.
- Invest in glass storage containers for storing leftovers and fresh cut fruits and veggies. Not only will this make you smile every time you open the fridge, but by being able to see what’s in your containers, you can easily see what’s available to you for a quick and easy snack or as you figure out what’s for dinner.
- Once you’ve cleaned out and inventoried your kitchen, it’s time to get busy building a shopping cart that supports a healthier eating style. Choose in-season fruits and veggies, calcium-rich milk, Cabot Greek Yogurt & Cheddars, lean protein, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes.
- Lastly, look to the following list of better-for-you recipes from our team of culinary experts. Each was hand-chosen for its perfect place in a newly “cleaned up” eating routine!
