I have had fun setting up my caravan pantry, fridge and freezer this morning before heading out of the suburbs, to Phillip Island where we set up our caravan site beside a solar heated swimming pool in a lovely bushland setting caravan park.
This is my pantry, fridge freezer basics shopping list.
Anchovies *is not something I would usually buy but my trainer has asked me to stock this, so I have, while doing her program.
Canned beans (e.g. red kidney, chickpeas, butterbeans)
Low-cal hot chocolate powder (make sure there are no trans-fats)

Fridge Essentials I won’t go into too much detail here as you will be getting your week one shopping list soon and I don’t want your food to spoil. To give you an idea, apart from fresh fruit and vegetables, you will need:
Low-cal cottage cheese or ricotta cheese
Low-cal (skim) milk or soy milk – high calcium is best
Low-cal yoghurt, no sugar
Meat for sandwiches
Multigrain or soy and linseed bread
Parmesan cheese (strong flavoured so you use less) Free range eggs cellery, carrots.
I add more variety to this, in my weekly shopping, but these items are usually in my caravan pantry
I have bought fresh pots of growing herbs, mint and chives and these travel with us to add extra flavour to our meals.
