Quarantine Cooking Shopping List
If you're looking at spending a little more time inside and a lot less time out and about, chances are you're thinking about food. Let's face it, during this COVID-19 pandemic, the grocery store can be a stressful place. They might not have the brands you know and love, or food that meets your preferences.
Here's my list of items that I'm shopping for - note: don't buy ALL of these, buy what you'll use!
canned beans (1 can = 2-3 servings)
dried lentils + beans
tinned tuna, salmon, and sardines (if you eat fish)
nuts + seeds
peanut butter/almond butter
chickpea flour (to make my chickpea crepe)
freeze your fave fresh proteins in 1-2 portions, and label the date and what they are!
pasta - I like wholegrain or chickpea pasta
buckwheat soba noodles or rice noodles
your fave cereal
pancake mix (that you can just add water to)
whole grain crackers
whole grain bread/bagels/english muffins - you can slice + freeze
frozen fruits - berries, peaches, pineapple, mango
frozen vegetables - broccoli, peas, carrots, spinach - anything you'll ACTUALLY eat
frozen meat substitutes - veggie burgers etc.
Fresh produce: choose long lasting produce
canned green beans
thai green curry paste
curry powder or paste
hummus (or homemade!)
canned coconut milk
Note: Check what you have in your pantry BEFORE shopping. Be mindful of best before dates, and try to limit purchases that will end in food waste. While you're out, check if your loved ones need a food delivery to decrease the need for them to be in public.
