Macro Friendly Food Staples

Please share!

If you are new to tracking macros, you may be unsure of what kinds of foods to keep stocked in your kitchen. This list is not all inclusive, and none of these recommendations are required to keep on hand. They are items I continue to reach for after 2.5 years of tracking macros for health and wellness.


Kind granola


Kind bars (regular and mini size)

Chickpea chips

Chickpea puffs

Chili lime seasoning

Vegan chicken less seasoning (from Trader Joe’s)

Tastefully Simple seasoned salt 

Tuna packets

Oatmeal packets

Nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts, cashews, pistachios)

Seeds (sunflower kernels, pumpkin seed/pepitas)

Almond butter (Justin’s vanilla almond butter is amazing)

Flaxseed meal
