Food Staples

I have been spring cleaning since I go back to work Monday. It feels good that everything is clean and getting organized. However, I am over it. It is taking a lot longer than I anticipated it would. We'll see what I am able to get done over the weekend.

Anyways... There are some food staples I generally always have in my house. These are my go to items so I don't generally think to much when I have want a snack, dessert, or go to meal. Here are my food staples:

  • Greek Yogurt
  • Bananas 
  • Granola Bars (Luna Chocolate Peppermint, Carrot Cake or Quest Bars)
  • Dark Chocolate Chips
  • Progresso Light Soup
  • Sobe
  • Mid's Pasta Sauce/Whole Wheat Pasta
  • Spinach/Carrots - for side salads
I am loving greek yogurt. As I mentioned in a previous post I love the Dannon Fit & Light Greek Yogurts. However, I finally tried plain greek yogurt with honey, fresh fruit, and granola. It has been my go to snack lately. I love the sweetness of it and the crunch of the granola. Delicious! The honey makes all the difference to sweeten it up. 

I also love bananas! Bananas are great on their own; however, I make protein cookies, bananas dipped in melted dark chocolate, protein muffins, protein shakes with frozen bananas, and more. Now when I have a chocolate craving I eat bananas with dark chocolate chips or I melt the dark chocolate chips. Before I would have eaten a king size Snickers or a bag of candy. 

I have been drinking SoBe Life Waters lately too. It helped me give up my extreme Diet Coke addiction. I don't drink them as often as I did since they are still not good for you and have artificial sweetener. They did help me kick my drinking Diet Coke. My favorites are the black & blue berry, acai raspberry, and yumberry pomegranate. 

What are your food staples? 


  1. I need to spring clean! Or at least get things in order.
