20 Kitchen Staples The Healthiest People Always Have On Hand
1 – Extra virgin olive oil – Yummy in salads and marinades, and drizzled on top of anything from salmon to chicken
2 – Flavored Vinegar – Use with olive oil as a dressing on your salad! Plus, vinegar helps open up blood vessels to improve blood flow.
3 – Course sea salt – Yes, the CDC recommends limiting your salt intake. But be careful, because regular salt is often prepared and processed.
4 – Beef or chicken broth – Simmer it to sip on throughout the day, or to sauté vegetables, and create a base for sauces
5 – Garlic cloves – Mince some up and use to add flavor to salads, soups or stir fry without adding any unhealthy fats or processed ingredients.
6 – Fresh lemons – Squeeze in your morning ginger tea, or over seafood or chicken for a refreshing flavor.
7 – Frozen kale – They stay crisp even after thawing, and they’re a quick add-in to scrambled eggs, smoothies or stir fry.
8 – Frozen berries – Full of antioxidants and a sweet addition to any protein shake or oatmeal.
9 – Canned tomatoes – Make a simple sauce by crushing them and adding in fresh herbs and simmer until warm!
10 – Sriracha – Adds spice to rice, stir fry, or in a salad dressing
