Healthy Pantry and Freezer-Friendly Recipes

Is it just me or does last week feel like a lifetime ago? Many of us are at staying home, doing our part to flatten the curve. Our locations are intentionally separate, but we are still working together. Over the last few days, I’ve heard from many of you who are scrambling to adjust your meal plan to cook from shelf-stable ingredients and freezer items. During this time of disruption and uneasy feelings, I hope this post will be a resource to help you find healthy, delicious recipes that use pantry staples and freezer-friendly ingredients.

While putting together this post, I was pleasantly surprised to find that DOZENS of my existing easy, healthy recipes use mostly (if not only!) pantry, basic refrigerator, and freezer items. Further, many recipes that don’t rely heavily on these items can be easily adapted to use what you do have on hand.
As we adjust to this new, unfamiliar phase of life, I’m happy to report that making yummy, healthy recipes that the entire family will love is still attainable. I hope these recipes help alleviate some stress and enable you to find comfort in the kitchen with those nearest to you.
Below, I’ve grouped recipes by common pantry and freezer ingredients. You’ll find dozens of healthy dinners and lunches. Because there are few happy distractions like baking, I also included a selection of my favorite wholesome baked goods and easy desserts. I think we could all use a warm, cozy muffin and a matching cookie right about now, don’t you?
