You might think this is all we eat, but I have a freezer full of frozen fruit for smoothies, chicken, waffles, and leftovers. I have plenty of canned veggies, and I go to the farmer's market once a week for fresh veggies. Obviously I am just highlighting major purchases here. Since peanut butter and pasta sauce is something I use a lot of, I believe in stockpiling when it is on sale.
