Today on Good Day Sacramento, I shared what to stock up on next time you are at the grocery store.
Produce that lasts: My first tip is to stock up on produce that lasts like winter squash and apples. I love the pocket-sized Rockit Apples from Raleys. They’re crisp, sweet, only 60 calories, a good source of filling fiber and vitamin C important for immune health.
Plant-based frozen meals: In the frozen aisle, Sweet Earth makes award-winning vegetarian foods. For recipes that call for chicken, you can add a plant-based twist with their protein-packed vegan Mindful chik’n. The Entrée bowls and burritos make for quick and easy meals, made with fresh veggies, savory flavors and packed with protein.
Pantry staples: Next we have pantry staples. The Lee Kum Kee products make it easy to whip up quick and delicious meals, snacks and baked goods. In stir-fry’s I use the Pure Sesame Oil, which is made from roasted sesame seeds and adds rich, nutty flavor.
For baking and cocktails, I use the keto-certified Monk Fruit In the Raw, which is a zero calorie, zero-net carb sweetener so it’s a lower glycemic sugar substitute. One packet packs the sweetness of two teaspoons of sugar.
Snacks: Next choose satisfying snacks that contain protein and fiber like crunchy roasted chickpeas – these are by Saffron Road. They also make nutritious shelf-stable meals you can find at Safeway, Whole Foods, Walmart, Sprouts & Costco.
Immunity-supporting foods: Finally, focus on immunity-supporting foods. I love these Goli gummies because they are made with pomegranate, carrots and apple cider vinegar, which research has linked to gut and immune health. All you taste is the apple, not the vinegar, they’re vegan, organic and gluten-free.
