[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I often get asked what I keep in my pantry to keep me on track with weight loss and healthy living. So, I thought I’d share with you a sneak peak into my kitchen, but beware, it’s nothing fancy! In fact, I thrive on simplicity. With three super busy kiddos, and managing the day-to-day here at E4M, becoming a culinary superhero in the kitchen is not at the top of my To-Do list. But I can assure you of one thing. If you will incorporate these 4 Staples in your home, you’ll not only lose weight, but be able to whip up any meal in a hurry without worrying about fat and calories. Sound fabulous? Let’s Go!
- Low calorie bread. 35 calorie per slice, bread like Aunt Millie’s and Healthy Life provide flexibility at every meal. Incorporating this one staple allows for me to make an egg sandwich at breakfast for just 150 calories, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich at lunch (using PBFit peanut butter powder) for about the same, and any deli sandwich when prepared with thin slice cheeses like Sargento for again, for yes, just about 150 calories!
- Grab-n-go snacks. Snacking can be tricky on a weight loss journey. Balancing nutrition and cravings can be hard. An E4M rule of thumb with snacks? Keep all snacks around 100-150 calories, and ready to go on a moment’s notice. Remember, snacks are intended to keep you going in between meals, so for only about 2 hours. 150 calories is totally sufficient for that! Our faves in this house? Mini baby bels and whole wheat crackers, sliced apple paired with a tbsp of our PBFit peanut butter powder, or 2 cups SkinnyPop popcorn, to name a few.
- Lean proteins. On a weight loss journey, lean proteins are a crucial part of your plan. Providing the building blocks for muscle development and aiding is satiation, no weight loss meal plan is successful without them. Here at E4M we always make sure to have on hand our 4 faves: chicken, pork, cheese, yogurt. Keeping it low calorie and balanced.
- Veggies. Although, I am a huge fan of fruits, the sugar content in most can derail even the best weight loss plan. The E4M rule of thumb regarding fruits and veggies? Always consume 2x’s the amount of veggies as you do fruit in one day!
Keep these 4 Simple Staples on hand and you’ll be well on your way to losing weight and living healthy! Need more tips and inspo? Do you desire a deeper walk with God while on this journey?
