Basic Foods for Cupboard, Fridge, and Freezer

When a young family member set up life in his first apartment, the inevitable shopping list for stocking the kitchen posed a good question. Just what are the basics you need to function day-to-day and meal-to-meal?

Our thanks to Alice Henneman, MS, RD, for the substance of today’s tip. She’s a dietitian at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension in Lancaster County. And she’s put together a very workable list, for those just starting out or for any of us who’d like to prepare more of our own meals.

You can find Ms Henneman’s list here, and I’d add this caveat: when looking at canned foods, take care to avoid those with the ubiquitous high fructose corn syrup, which is just added sugar none of us needs.
