I believe that the largest part of staying healthy and fit is being prepared. I need to have workouts on my schedule, fresh gym clothes packed, and a decent lunch ready to grab in order to stay on track. Ensuring I don’t have naughty foods stocked in the cupboards and that I do keep kitchen staples that pack a nutritional punch on hand plays the biggest role in keeping a healthy balanced diet.
I have compiled a list of kitchen staples to help you stay on track with your nutrition and fitness goals! You can also easily adapt this list to be gluten free, vegan, or dairy free as well.
Whatever your health goals are, it is important to remember that nutrition and diet have the biggest impact. When in doubt, try to stick to food that is in the most natural state and not processed then put in pretty packaging. Something that is plucked off of a tree or vine is bound to be a better option than something you take out of a plastic wrapper!
Eating well can be fun and easy if you are well stocked and prepared! I hope this list of kitchen staples helps you stay on track with your fitness and nutrition goals by having a simple go-to spot for foods to keep stocked in your home. What are some other ways you stay on track and prepared?
