This spring is definitely not what we were expecting. The whole world is affected by the coronavirus pandemic and one of the things you need to think about right now is stocking your fridge and pantry with groceries that can last you longer than a few days. You’re probably aware that many things with a long shelf-life contain preservatives or are made in factories and therefore don’t have a great nutritional value, but there are still foods you can get that will give you all the nutrients you need without spoiling too fast.


Almonds and other nuts are great for your overall health. They contain a lot of vitamin E and fiber and can last for up to a year in the fridge. Nut butter is good for 9 months when unopened and 3 months after opening.

Brown Rice

Unopened packages of brown rice can easily be stored for a year in the pantry and the period shortens to around six months once the package is open. Brown rice is a great base for a variety of dishes you can make.

Chia Seeds

Chia seeds can boost every breakfast you make and they can last for up to one year when stored in an airtight container.


Oats are a great choice for a quick and nutritious breakfast and you can store them for months in a cool, dry place.

Olive Oil

You can keep olive oil for up to a year if the bottle is unopened and around six months after opening it.
