Grocery stores and online resources offer plenty of prepared foods. Some of them are even of the “healthier” variety, giving us some handy snacks to have on hand that are at least made from “better for you” ingredients. I appreciate having a few of these items on hand for when we’re traveling or for those days I truly can’t find an extra minute to make something to eat.
But what I find it better to focus on is simply purchasing real food ingredients. If I stock up on all the staple ingredients that I use frequently, I can be assured that with just a few minutes of work, we will have something great to eat! Even better, I find that if I have basic staple ingredients on hand, if I find a few extra minutes in the day, I can mix something up to put into the freezer for those days I don’t have time to cook (which is happening more and more as my kids get older).
Read more about my preferred staple ingredients here. And here’s something super fun to help us all get going with our real food stock pile…
More Than Alive, which carries many wonderful ingredients that I use daily, has put together a perfect package to give away. The quality of the food they offer is wonderful. I love that you can purchase in large quantities, or just by the pound if you prefer. (Although I found that if you purchase a larger quantity, typically the price per pound is much less!) They offer free shipping on orders over $100, which is a huge money saver. I love it when healthy ingredients arrive on my porch!
