Learn How to Stock the Kitchen at Your Waypoint Residential Apartment Home With This Helpful Guide

It's often more healthful to cook at home than to dine out, and it's easier to start making delightful dinners at home if your kitchen's already stocked with an array of great ingredients. If you'd like to stock the kitchen at your Waypoint Residential apartment home, this useful online NIH guide can help you learn how to select versatile, healthful ingredients. Here are some items the guide recommends:

Herbs and Spices
Sure, you've probably got salt, pepper, and maybe even garlic powder already. But having stuff like cilantro, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, tarragon, and rosemary around can come in handy when you're whipping up a quick meal.

Sauces and Condiments
Sauces, juices, and condiments are worth having on hand to help you prepare proteins, vegetables, and grains in a variety of different ways. Pasta sauce and canned tomatoes are useful when cooking Italian food, while lime juice, soy sauce, chicken broth, and honey can be used in a number of different dishes.

Whole Grains
Whole grains like couscous, brown rice, quinoa, and whole wheat pasta noodles all make great staples, since they can form the basis of an easy-to-make, healthy dinner.
