And even though it's fun (and healthy!) to spice up the grocery list every week with new items, there's something to be said for those same high-performing, delicious and healthful staples we stock at all times.

We know what we like to keep on hand, but we decided it was time for a lesson from the experts: We asked our favorite nutritionists to share with us their personal go-to kitchen staples.
