Pandemic Shopping List
Canned items are staple products to stock up on during many types of emergencies, even more so during a pandemic. When kept at a moderate temperature (about 75 degrees), they can practically remain edible for decades.
Canned veggies and fruits are a great way to ensure that you get sufficient amounts of the vitamins and minerals your body needs to function properly.
Fruit: Rich source of vitamin C. You should buy canned fruit with no added sugar. Keep it varied and opt for mixed bowls of canned peaches, pineapple, grapefruit and mandarins.
Vegetables: Canned vegetables such as corn, carrots, pumpkin or beet are packed with fiber, vitamin C and beta-carotene, to name a few nutrients, and quite versatile when it comes to the recipes they can be added to. Opt for low-sodium varieties.
Beans: All sorts of canned beans are a great source of plant protein. Look for products with no added salt or seasoning you might not like.
Ravioli: Unlike other types of canned pasta, cheese ravioli is low in sodium and saturated fats and high in carbs and protein.
Fish: Great source of omega-3 fatty acids and protein. From tuna to salmon and sardines, canned fish can be a great addition to your lunch and dinner dishes.
Soups and chillis: Low-sodium and low-fat soups should not be absent from your pandemic pantry. Not when you can pair them with canned veggies and spices and enjoy a delicious lunch.
