A pandemic pantry: is your kitchen prepared?

By #HappyPear

Want to know how to what to buy for your kitchen cupboards over the coming weeks?

We based this on food that can be used in multiple ways and multiple recipes, is highly and is cheap and widely available.

Have you noticed that people are getting somewhat crazy about buying and hoarding necessities in this time of quarantine, and many times, they are making poor choices when deciding what to buy? We should priority a selection of food that is heavily nutritional, versatile, and that doesn’t go off. It will mean basic food that can last longer without compromising its integrity and its nutritional content.

What is the best food to buy in pandemic pantry times?

Prioritize buying Seeds and Grains in their dry form. Beans, corn, lentils are high in protein and can be purchased in their canned form, but when bought dry, they are cheaper and have a bigger shelf life.

Concentrate on buying whole-grain foods, they are more nutritional and will keep you and your family high in energy integrity.

When selecting sauces as the base of your cooking, think about what you need for your basic kitchen. Our suggestion would be coconut milk if you want to cook Asian food or canned tomato sauce, and also the classic bouillon cubes and vegetable stock, and you may even try almond butter sauce that can be dissolved as a thick sauce and used as a stock to prepare heavily nutritionally dense foods.

Our intention is not endorsing you to buy more than you need. We intend to help you with these recommendations, and to inspire you, not to send you into a panic mode.

In extremely stressful times, our bodies naturally crave more calories and endorphin releases as a coping mechanism. It is important to buy what you need and make healthy choices, even if you are anxious.

We need to be extra alert and aware of these factors when we are shopping. When stocking your Pandemic Pantry, please try to be mindful of the needs of others, buying what you need, and leaving groceries and cleaning products behind for other people that may need them as well.
