Building a Healthy Pantry, Part 2

Click here to make an appointment with a dietitian

When you cook for yourself, you know exactly how much salt, sugar and fat is going into your food. And to cook healthfully, you need to stock up on the good-for-you staples like healthy oils, whole wheat breads and flours, and more.

In this video, Nora Saul, M.S., R.D., C.D.E., Manager of Nutrition Services at Joslin, takes you through the ingredients you need to build yourself a healthy pantry.

Substitute

White breads, flours, and rices are highly processed, which strips away many of the foods’ vitamins and minerals. Whole grain, unprocessed versions have a much higher nutritional value.

You don’t need to get rid of the less healthy versions of these foods all at once, but substituting them out a few nights a week will help you get on your way to better control.
