We often get asked about our best meal planning advice. And, of all the pearls of wisdom we could share, possibly the most prominent is that about stocking up on grocery staples.
If you’ve ever had a look over a set meal plan, and jotted down all of the ingredients, you may have felt overwhelmed at first. But upon closer inspection, you can see that you already have a number of the basic ingredients. Seasonings, cooking oil, canned goods, pasta, and so on.
By making sure you’re always stocked up on basic grocery items, you’ll in turn, find it incredibly easy to throw a meal together. Particularly on your busiest days.
One of these staples for us, is ricotta. If you have pasta, ricotta delivers a lighter version of a creamy pasta dish. It’s also a easy white base for pizza, a great ingredient on toast or a match made in frittata heaven.
