FEED RD Sara Haas also works as a freelance writer, recipe developer, and consultant dietitian/chef and is often experimenting in kitchen.
Her cart always has:
As much produce as possible –This makes packing lunches and making dinner naturally nourishing!
Milk, which her family loves on cereal, and she uses routinely for cooking and baking
Peanut butter – an awesome source of plant-based protein! Always buy the big jar of just peanut, peanut butter.
