The Balance Lab Master Pantry List

Master Pantry List

pc: Kokil Sharma

Most recipes and plans here on The Balance Lab assume you have a steady stock of staples in your pantry. Having these things makes planning, budgeting, and cooking in a pinch a thousand times easier! You’ll rely less on take-out, and the more you learn, the more you’ll be able to throw something together quickly without having to spend an hour staring blankly at your pantry (or refrigerator for that matter…fridge list is below). Click the link above (Master Pantry List) to grab your copy! (Free of course).

Take time to print or save this page and refer to it often, especially if you are fairly new to all of this. Amounts and quantities will vary of course, depending on if you’re living the single life or running around after several littles. Either way, I hope this helps!

Master Fridge List:

  • Milk / Plant Based Milk
  • Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Green juice
  • Purple or some sort of berry based all natural, no sugar added juice
  • Pre-made pie crusts
  • Butter AND vegan butter substitute or whatever your favorite spreadable butter is
  • Hummus
  • Cream cheese (or vegan/veg variant)
  • Sparkling water if you’re trying to kick the soda habit (My personal favorites are Target’s Good & Gather brand and San Pellegrino brand).

Hi! My name is Kayla, and I’m so glad you’re here. I know firsthand what it means to be busy (I’m an active duty enlisted soldier, mama, surfer, yogi, business owner, the list goes on) and I want to help you find ways to make your journey a little easier. I started this blog as way to share meal prep recipes, and I cannot wait to see where it grows from there. My focus is less crap, less ads, less busyness and more actionable content, more things you can actually use without scrolling down a million miles to find a recipe or concept. I am sick of scrolling for ages trying to find a recipe, so here, I’m doing something different. It is the Balance Lab, after all. And you’ll notice I added “experiment” on the end. Life is a continuous experiment, and I hope through this blog you’ll feel free and inspired to try new things – as well as ground yourself in old ones.
