I had to revise my 10 essential staples mainly because I found out I had many food allergies. Other reasons include location and love for new foods! Here are my current 10 essential staples I must have at ALL times. I’m serious, especially with the first one. What are yours?
- Rolled Oats!
- Egg Beaters
- Soymilk (or other milk alternative)
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Black Beans
- Olive Oil
- Sugar Snap Peas
Like you didn’t see rolled oats coming in at number one? I’ve also included egg beaters and pure maple syrup because I love to use these for my many oatmeal recipes, including protein pancakes and oatmeal breakfast squares.
Instead of quinoa and brown rice, I’ve been enjoying barley more. I love that it has the taste and texture of brown rice but a good amount of protein and fiber like quinoa. Of course nothing beats quinoa in stats, but it’s up there!
