This post is to find and develop my ‘usuals’ list. I work from home and want to have a balanced plant-based diet, so I need to have nice food at all times.
This will probably never be complete and always updated and I’ll see in the future how useful it will be.
Starches aka the base
Beans (kidney, canelli, butter beans, black eyed beans)
Potatos (sweet potatos and all others) – I get those on a weekly organic box scheme
Pasta/noodles (current favourite soba noodles) I usually get whole wheat – you get used to it quickly and start loving it!
Rice (sushi rice, risotto rice, brown rice, basmati, pudding rice)
Flour/grains (rice, spelt, wheat)
Anything goes … frozen in bulk when cheap. Important to me are different colors!
I get my weekly, local, organic veg and like to experiment with this.
Eggplants/Aubergines (need my weekly dose of baba ganoush)
Salt (sea salt, table salt etc)
Oregano, thyme, coriander, curry, basil
Sweets/Nuts and other treats
Honey melons are my current thing as well as the usual fruits via the box scheme ( apples etc)
Dried fruit … so much sugar yummy treat
Other important stuff
Arrow root starch
Organic oat flakes
Almond milk, hazelnut milk
Frozen berries or fresh
Apples (via box scheme)
