Social Distancing Not Deprivation

Updated: Mar 22, 2022

Hi friends,

Below is a list of pantry staples to help you nourish those cells during your social distancing. I’ve also included some easy recipes using these pantry items below. If you’re fortunate enough to have access to fresh produce and meat, my top tip is to make freezer meals using some of those ingredients.  Light & Love,



Pantry List:

Proteins: Vegan: Black beans, lentils, chickpeas, frozen organic edamame, quinoa, brown/black/ jasmine rice, pumpkin seeds, nutritional yeast, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds, vegan protein powder, millet, buckwheat, white beans, navy beans & pinto beans * Chickpea, lentil, edamame, brown rice and quinoa  pasta are great, too!* Animal Options: Canned wild salmon, bone broth, collagen powder, bone broth powder

Fats: Nuts/ nut butters, seeds, olive oil, coconut oil & butter, tahini, jarred olives, full fat coconut cream/ milk, MCT oil & avocado oil Fibers: Chia seeds, flax seed & acacia fiber Canned Veg: Artichokes, tomatoes & organic corn Baking Items: Coconut and almond flour, organic gluten free oats, cinnamon, vanilla extract, honey, arrowroot powder and baking soda & powder

Super Greens Powder: Ancient Nutrition’s Organic SuperGreens

Spices: Garlic powder, onion power, oregano, basil, red chili flakes, paprika, cumin & turmeric Random items: Lemon/lime juice, salsa, pasta sauce (Rao’s), canned pumpkin pure, gluten free bread (frozen) roasted red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, balsamic vinegar, nut milk, whole-grain Dijon mustard, capers & coconut aminos 

If you have access to frozen produce, great! If it’s sold out and you’re able to access fresh produce, you can always buy fresh and freeze it.

My go-to frozen options: Fruits: Berries, Cherries & Avocado Veggies: Spinach, Broccoli, Peas and Cauliflower Rice
