Healthy Pantry Makeover

The simplest way to make healthful cooking a breeze is to have the right items on hand. So what goes into a healthy pantry? We’re glad you asked.

The following foods are key ingredients for making healthy meals. To get the best value, choose our 365 Everyday Value® brand. And when you can, go organic!

Fill your pantry with these shelf basics, and then, once or twice a week, shop for more perishable foods, recipe ingredients and our convenient Health Starts Here® prepared foods.
