With September right around the corner, hurricane season (and pantry stocking season) is upon us. You can still stay committed to your health goals with these nutrient-packed, shelf-stable, tasty storm season staples. Gone are the days of living off of peanut butter and white bread. Thankfully, healthier pantry items are becoming more readily available in stores and online.
Packaged foods can often contain poor quality or synthetic ingredients, extra additives and preservatives, so when choosing items to keep in stock, aim for:
Be sure to stock up on some of these nutritious options:
Siete grain-free chips
Simple Mills crackers and pita chips
Himalayan salt popcorn with avocado or olive oil
Grass-fed beef jerky sticks
Canned wild salmon or tuna
Thunderbird or Lara date bars
Simple mills cookies
Siete grain-free cookies
Single serve, non-perishable almond, hemp, flax, oat or rice milk
