4 Foods A Dietitian Keeps In Her Kitchen For Quick, Healthy Meals

If you don't have time to plan meals, eating healthy may seem difficult then you can fill your kitchen with these item, to make a healthy dinner without planning.

Keeping canned, frozen, fresh, or dried protein, starchy carbohydrates, and veggies in your fridge, freezer, and cupboards so "there's always a way for you to obtain the main food groups, even if you haven't been to the shops in 10 days."

Keeps these ingredients in her kitchen for quick, healthful dinners.

1. Carbohydrates with a long half-life Because of the high fiber and vitamin content, everyone always has a loaf of seeded or multigrain bread on hand in her freezer.

2. Meat and non-meat proteins To avoid resorting to less healthy frozen processed options like chicken nuggets, store fresh meat like chicken breast and hog mince, or Quorn if you're vegetarian.

3. Vegetables, both fresh and canned or frozen Keep in the refrigerator- frozen peas, bananas, and berries on hand, as well as canned tomatoes, tinned sweetcorn, and tinned fruit like peaches and pineapple, etc, to produce fresh food.

4. "Healthy" fats Extra virgin olive oil and rapeseed oil are go-to for healthy fats, but I also recommend keeping a variety of nuts and seeds on hand.

Walnuts and chia seeds are my go-to sources of Omega-3 fatty acids.
