Best healthy staples [Moved from Pacific Northwest]
I am always on the lookout for new products. I like to have healthy staples in my fridge that
taste great and add a lot to a dish. Roasted Peppers in a can, Greek God's yogurt
Any other suggestions....................
Imagine brand chicken broth (IMHO better than Pacific Foods Brand) Tomato Paste in a tube. Anchovies in oil (i buy the kind in a jar) Pinenuts in the freezer can't hurt, neither can a few trays of the frozen herbs by Dorat at Trader Joes (garlic, basil, cilantro, parsley) Dried Habenero chiles. I think the Fronterra brand salsas are pretty good too. I like to keep a package of good sliced bacon in the freezer too, it's easy to cut up & cook with in a pinch.
For chicken broth, I'd actually go down to U-Dist, get a $3/lb stewing chicken from Skagit River Ranch and make my own.
Get some plastic bell freezer jam jars and freeze them by the cup (I'd get some half cup ziploc containers too, for all those "and a half" cup requirements.
There may be a couple dried pepper vendors there too still.
Olivada. Chipotle in adobe sauce, either whole or pureed. Capers. Dijon mustard. Parmesan cheese and parmesan cheese rinds. Soy sauce (Kikkoman). Pancetta.
Willshire Peppered Turkey Bacon
WF's 360 Roasted Veggie Pasta Sauce (I mix with veggie, ground meat, chicken, etc)
Cottage Cheese--such a staple in my diet
Prepackages or frozen veggies
Spray Salad Dressing to add flavor to meats, veggies, potatoes, etc
Bacon bits, onion flakes, dried garlic flakes
TJ's 21 Seasoning Mix--I LOVE this (I add to eggs, meats veggies, starches, pasta)
Low-Cal BBQ Sauce
Laughing Cow Cheese
