At the start of a new year, it’s always a great idea to stock up your pantry with some key grocery items that you know you can rely on. More importantly, simple yet nutritious ingredients should help make wonderful weeknight meals or snacks! To get your kitchen prepped and ready for meal planning success this year, here are the essential staples for your weekly grocery list so you have everything necessary to create delicious dishes with ease and joy.

The first pantry item you need is grains. Whole-grain pasta, quinoa, brown rice, and oats are all great staples to have on hand for quick meals or snacks throughout the week. They all cook quickly and can be used in a variety of recipes.

Next up is canned goods like beans, tomatoes, and vegetables. Not only are they a great source of both protein and fiber, they’re also incredibly versatile. Whether you’re making chili, soup, or even tacos, having canned goods on hand makes it easy to whip up nutritious meals in no time!

On the dried fruit side, dates and raisins are a great staple to keep in your pantry. Dates are an excellent source of magnesium and offer a sweet, chewy texture and flavor to recipes like overnight oats or smoothies.

Finally, no pantry is complete without nuts and seeds. Nuts not only add crunch to dishes but they’re also packed with healthy fats and protein. They can be used as a topping for salads, stirred into oatmeal, or simply eaten as a snack. Seeds such as chia and flax are also important sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which help promote heart health.
