What Should You Have In Your Cupboard?

Picture this, it’s late. You’ve worked a long day, you’re starving, and all you want to do is eat dinner and decompress a bit before bed.  But when you open your cupboard – everything is either super labor intensive (boiling, chopping, and fussing) or unhealthy (hello, ramen noodles).  You know you should save money and feed your body right by making something at home but the lure of your local delivery service begins calling you louder than ever before.

Sound familiar?

When you’re trying to eat healthy, a bare cupboard can derail even the best of efforts.

One tried and true method to stay on track is to stock up on wholesome, easy foods so you’re more likely to make the right choice in the face of exhaustion and temptation. The more healthy options you have available the less likely you’ll be to reach for the bad stuff – at Integrative Nutrition, we call this crowding out.

So, what are the best grocery go-to’s for healthy living?
