SHELF FOODS

Having canned veggies and fruits on hand is a great way to ensure that you're still consuming essential vitamins and minerals.

  • FruitLook for canned fruit that has no added sugar.

  • Vegetables: A great source of fiber, vitamin C and other nutrients, canned veggies like corn, carrots, peas and green beans, are a great addition to lots of meals.

  • Beans: A great source of plant protein

  • Ravioli: Cheese ravioli provides carbohydrates, protein and is low in saturated fat.

  • Fish: A source of both protein and omega-3 fatty acids, canned fish can be used in sandwiches and main dishes.

  • Soups and chilis: Several different varieties available. You can always perk up relatively plain soups with extra veggies and your favorite spices.

  • Cereal

  • Instant oatmeal packets: Instant oatmeal makes a very filling breakfast and you can always add a spoonful of nut butter for more protein, or a few tablespoons of dried fruit for sweetness.

  • Granola bars and protein bars

  • Popcorn: If you’re going to be inside for two weeks, chances are you’ll be watching plenty of shows on Netflix.

PANTRY STAPLES
