When it comes to implementing a healthier lifestyle and sticking to it, planning is key.  It’s easy to be derailed from your goals when you haven’t effectively prepared for success. No matter what diet you follow, a good strategy for staying on track it to have basic healthy essentials on hand for quick meals and snacks.  Whether you’re new to this and looking to make change or just needing a refresher course in the clean eating lifestyle, a thorough pantry and fridge overhaul can be a great starting point!

Many of the options I list below are super simple to make in your kitchen (I’ve included links to my recipes!) with just a few basic ingredients. But no worries if you’re not quite ready to make that leap and need a more convenient option, because most can be found in your local grocery store or can be ordered online through Amazon or Thrive Market (my favorite for unique and organic ingredients.)

Ready to begin stocking your kitchen for clean eating success? I’ve broken this list down into categories of basic essentials for your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. Let’s take a look at all the best pantry staples for healthy eating you’ll need to make simple and nutritious meals.
