In April, I introduced my first 'Healthy At Home' newsletter, designed for busy mums, helping you to support your health and wellbeing during these difficult and challenging times.
One of the features in the newsletter is My Food Store. It's essentially a sheet you can print off and use to do a Kitchen Stock Take, compiling a list of all the food in your kitchen. You can then use your list to plan your meals for the week ahead and maybe get ahead with some batch cooking.
It may seem a bit time-consuming, but undertaking a kitchen stock take is a great way to get organised and will really help you meal plan, all whilst making use of existing ingredients. It should also help to cut down on food waste, shopping bills and the frequency of grocery shops.
So, in the long-run you should find you're saving time and headspace on planning your meals. If, like me, you are a busy mum, working from home AND home-schooling, meal planning really can be your best friend.
Rest assured, there's so many great recipes you can make with store cupboard foods. Canned tomatoes, tinned fish, beans, pulses and grains (rice, pasta and couscous) - these are all such versatile, nutrient-dense foods. Check out my Mediterranean Tuna & White Bean Salad below for some inspiration. It's made with just a few tins, some salad and tastes delicious! More recipes can be found on my Instagram feed @suziehealthyliving
You can read more about the nutritious benefits of store-cupboard foods in my 'Healthy At Home' newsletter. You'll also find another two store cupboard recipes and some of my healthy eating tips.
