10 Must-Have Pantry Staples


Nut Butters

Nut and seed butters are a great shelf-stable staple that delivers the same health benefits as nuts. Peanut butter, for instance, is a concentrated source of protein, as well as heart-healthy monounsaturated fats, vitamin E, and B vitamins. Opt for natural nut butters without added sugars or additives. Other great options include almond butter, cashew butter and walnut butter. Also, soy nut butter and sunflower seed butter. It’s amazing on sandwiches and toast, of course, but be creative and work it into meals and snacks in fun ways, as with these clever Apple Nachos.
