5 Items I Always Pick Up at The Grocery Store



Welcome back to A Pinch of Brunette! Just wanted to say a quick thank you to all of you who read my blog; it means so much to me to have people reading the content I'm creating!

Today I wanted to share 5 items that are staples on my grocery list! I don't pick these things up every single week just because I don't run out of them every week so keep that in mind. These are items though that I always have in our cupboard because they're easy meals or additions to meals! 

5 Items That Are Always In My Cupboard 

1. Chia Seeds

Chia seeds are a great addition to so many different things! I love adding chia seeds to yogurt, oat balls, doughnuts, smoothies, etc. You can also make chia pudding! Chia seeds have Omega-3's which are so important in our diets especially since most American diets are very high in Omega-6's. 

2. Rolled Oats

I LOVE oatmeal! You can do so much with oatmeal I promise it doesn't have to be boring! I love putting frozen fruit on top of oatmeal in the morning. I've also used rolled oats for oat balls and in meatless meatballs for Kyle's meatball subs. Oats have so many vitamins and minerals and they're a great source of good carbs and fiber!

3. Nut Butter

Peanut, almond, cashew... there are so many different types of nut butters! I love adding peanut butter to my smoothies or oatmeal for a good source of healthy fat. For me, personally, adding healthy fat to a meal really keeps me full and sustains me for a long time. 

4. Chickpeas

Chickpeas are probably the thing I buy the most at the grocery store, I just can't help how much I love these little beans! The main reason I love chickpeas is because not only are they a good source of protein but they're so versatile. I make chickpea "tuna" salad, meatless meatballs, stir fry, chickpea and avocado sandwiches and so much more. Chickpeas are very neutral in flavor so you can really do a lot with them!

5. Spinach 

You probably already know why dark leafy greens like spinach are good for you but I'm here to reenforce it even more! Dark leafy greens have a ton of vitamins and minerals in them which obviously make them amazing for you. Why I prefer spinach to other greens, like kale, is because it is mild in taste so it's easiest to work into your diet. The easiest way to get some spinach down is in a smoothie!
