Shop for pantry staples including protein bars, nut butters, dry cereal or granola, canned goods, and don’t forget your favorite brand of boxed mac and cheese.
Dry grains including rice, farro, quinoa, and lentils are also key items to get at the store. These items have a long shelf and do not require refrigeration. They are also easy to cook, cheap, and that make great meals.
Consider bagged beans versus canned because they are cheaper.
