When you first join Weight Watchers, there will be things in your pantry that you don’t need anymore. For us, it was the junk food, the sugary cereals, not enough staple items and no healthy snacks. I quickly realized how important stocking your pantry was for being successful with Weight Watchers. It can happen, but you need to be prepared.
Here is a list of the must have pantry items that we always have on hand – and I actually use all the time.
Quinoa – this grain is used in a bunch of my recipes, and is easy to make yourself. Try this black bean and feta quinoa salad, if you aren’t sure you would like it.
Brown Rice – Cooked rice can be a lot of points on Weight Watchers, but it’s filling and healthy enough if used in moderation. Make sure to measure your cooked rice if you want it in a recipe – it will affect most of the recipes on this blog if you use it.
These items will help make your cooking experience that much easier if you have them on hand already. I always keep a healthy stock of broths and canned tomatoes and beans just in case I want to add them to a recipe.
