5 Things I Cannot Live Without In My Cupboards

I don't know about you guys but when it comes to other people's shopping - I am so nosy.

I LOVE seeing what everyone else is buying and what everyone eats - haha.... the weirdest of the internet right?
So today I'm talking about the 5 items I cannot live without! The 5 things that are always in my shopping trolley and are essential to my week!
1. Green Tea
This has to be #1. I am an avid green tea drinker - I literally think I have a problem ... and now I work in an office full of other green tea drinkers my daily intake seems to have doubled! 
I love the stuff AND it's good for you, win-win! (Top tip : if you don't like normal green tea .... try the new gingerbread version from Twinings #amazing)

2. Peanut Butter
What an essential! The greatest of all the spreads  I'd say (although Marmite is a beauty.)
I have peanut butter on ...everything. It's such a winner when it comes to my sweet-tooth cravings (which hit daily). My favourite snacks are a granny smith apple with peanut butter and oatcakes with peanut butter.
When it comes to crunchy or smooth.... I'd have to go for crunchy but I do buy smooth aswell - I like to have options okay!

3. Eat Natural Bars
Over the last 6 months I have become completely and utterly obsessed with these and have one daily without fail! With trying to cut down on sugar and eat cleaner these have been the perfect replacement for any chocolate/cakes I seemed to have been downing before. With everything in the ingredients list clean and readable (none of those crazy additives that you can't pronounce) I never feel bad treating myself to one of these and they keep me going!

4. Porridge Sachets
Yes this is lazy. I know I could just buy a bag of oats and what-not but I love these easy sachets from Oats So Simple, I always grab the family size boxes (22 sachets) when they are on offer in Tesco for £1.99. I have one every morning with almonds and honey and at the weekends I like to treat myself to some raspberries and blueberries... crazy aren't I!

5. Wholemeal Wraps
My lunch. Every single day. I love my chicken salad wrap I do, and these wholemeal ones are the best! 

What are your top 5 things in your cupboard that you ALWAYS have stocked up?



  1. I'm off shopping today, so thanks for reminding me of some good items I could buy! My top 5 are: eggs as I always need for baking, pasta as it's good for a quick lunch with garlic, olive oil and chilli flakes, hot chocolate (especially the fairtrade clipper one), coffee as my husband is Italian (!) and bread as I always have toast when I don't have anything else to eat (with cheese on!) x

  2. Porridge sachets and peanut butter also make up 2/5 must-have food essentials. I also always have earl grey tea (my personal fave), cheese and wholewheat pasta :) xx

  3. I cannot live without Whole Earth Peanut Butter and Pukka Matcha Tea! My favourites! x

  4. Amazing! 5 of my must haves too! This is a fun post :)

  5. Ive seen this peanut butter everywhere as well as its almond sister and it looks a great brand to try. I would love to try it on an apple as I think it would be good to curb some of my sweet cravings as you mention. My boyf always likes buying wraps, they're great for all sorts of meals/lunches and they last a long time too haha!

  6. I love porridge but am not a peanut butter fan at all - I hate the smell.
