Way back in February, Frida made a post on her staple foods and I figured it was such a great concept of a post that I wanted to make one myself. (Thinking slightly of this Banksy)
So these are the groceries that are most likely to end up in my shopping basket.
The fantastic four of vegetables for me are definitely zucchini, avocado, sweet potato and mushrooms. I also tend to by plenty of broccoli (cheap, tasty, full of goods), bananas (favourite fruit) and of course ginger, onion and garlic for cooking.
I also down a pint of hot water with half a squeezed lemon each morning, so I like to stock up on those too.
I am not a big salad fan, but I adore spinach and we always have a big bag ready in the fridge for salads or working undercover in smoothies.
To bunker up on coconut cream and canned plum tomatoes are like the first aid kit for me. Not knowing what to cook? Just throw together a curry with those poor carrots that have been laying at the bottom of the fridge for the past weeks!
Same goes for rice and lentils. I also bulk buy dried chickpeas from the Asian supermarket, and use it to make hummus or blend into flour for nuggets or peazza.
A fresh basil plant often gets to adorn the kitchen window sill during the warmer months. We pinch off the full grown leaves and let the teeny ones keep growing, making sure to water it of course.
Oats are of course a must, as they are part of my daily regime and perfect to use for cookies or flapjacks when the sweet tooth kicks in.
We also get whatever plant based milk is on special, oat or soy most often.
Rice cakes and corn pasta are pretty dope to have around for us with sensitive to wheat bellies.
Soy sauce, coconut oil and vegetable bouillon to lively up the cooking…
… along with red curry paste and peanut butter aka the love of my life.
Finally, I always make sure to have some syrup, tahini and the second love of my life nutritional yeast.
What is a must in your grocery bag? ♥
