MY TOP 5 CUPBOARD ESSENTIALS ⚕️
Meal times are always a bit manic, but that doesn’t mean we should resort to frozen convenience food! I love having my favourite go-to ingredients stocked up nutritious batches, just in case my fridge is looking bare (or I’m just feeling lazy!) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lentils & chickpeas - These long-lasting pulses are super rich in protein, fibre, magnesium, calcium and B vitamins. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tahini/nut butter - Dressing, dip, out of the jar...tahini is a healthy fat and an excellent source of calcium and vitamin E. It also contains 20% protein! I'm a huge fan of @nutcessity’s cashew, brazil & coconut. The balance of nuts and coconut flakes makes digestion a breeze, and they’re loaded with added micronutrients (hello selenium!!). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sweet potatoes - The most versatile and delicious complex carb out there. Health hash for breakfast? Jacket potatoes for lunch? Baked fries for dinner? You betcha.
Wakame/nori flakes - Trace minerals are incredibly important but often left behind. Did you know iodine has a huge part to play in your thyroid function? Seaweed is one of the best foods on the planet for getting your trace minerals. If you can't stomach it, Pink Himalayan Salt is fab!
