Stocked Up and Ready to Go

The Fast family broke quarantine today to venture out to
the grocery store. I figured it was probably safe for the general
public given we have all been fever-free for several days now.

I generally like to keep a pretty well-stocked kitchen so it took a
while to deplete our rations, but when I started contemplating how
edible the shriveled up grapes at the bottom of the fruit keeper in
the fridge would be, I knew it was time to hit the market.

I still feel a little less than 100 percent, but tons better than I did
just a few days ago. I was tempted to bypass the store today, but I
was afraid of what might happen if I decided to wing it for a few
more days. I feel good that I replenished provisions so that I can
be successful the rest of the week.

Here are a few of my favorites:

I try to keep bags of these frozen veggies at my fingertips. Tossed with some olive oil and a variety of seasonings, they bulk up any meal.

Fresh fruit is always in reach. I know it has to be hauled from miles and miles away in the winter, but I have a hard time living without it.

I think I’m ready to go for the week – yogurt, cottage cheese, fruits and veggies.

This Kashi is one of my favorite varieties – it’s packed full of protein and fiber, and it’s sweet to boot.

What does a well-stocked kitchen look like to you?

  1. I’m a fruit-a-holic too. As long as I have fruit, fresh veggies, yogurt, tuna, bread, almonds, and peanut butter, I’m satisfied I can weather almost any storm. As long as it’s over within a week so I can get to some fro-yo. 🙂

  2. Fruit – yep. Sent my husband out for more for me. Frozen veggies too, are a must.

  3. I forget sometimes how much I take for granted fresh fruit and veggies. I may scrimp on a lot, but that is one area that I definitely indulge. My son has a healthy appetite for it as well. He was quite insulted years ago when he was in fourth grade and went on a school outdoor adventure camp, and they were served CANNED pears. You would have thought they made him eat the owl pellets they were dissecting!
