Feeding a family of six is no joke. In this episode I’m going to share my pantry basics shopping list that can make your meal planning ideas easy-peasy.
If you’re like us and have a family, the hours between 4 and 7 are probably really busy in your house. I have found that it can be really difficult trying to think through a dinner plan when it’s crunch time. That’s why I make sure to keep my pantry stocked with staple goods that allow for easy, family-friendly meals that can be whipped up at a moment’s notice.
Healthy Grocery Shopping: 10 Staple Pantry Items
