Ever notice how the same items end up on your grocery list over and over again? There are some staples that we try to make sure we have and then some, like buying items that can double (or triple) as more than one thing (it can save a ton of money). For example, rolled oats can be used to make oatmeal, granola bars, or be ground up into oat flour to make something else.
I’ve come up with a list of healthy foods that you may appreciate adding to your grocery list at some point or another, especially if you have kids. Some of them are my personal favorites.
Think of ALL the possibilities with these foods as you read through them (I have given you some ideas along the way).
