Some things I always try to have in the pantry...

Canned beans, canned tomatoes, flax seeds, quinoa, dried legumes: red lentils, green lentils, soy beans, chick peas, kidney beans, brown rice. Also pasta, spices, etc. Baked beans and instant noodles are good too :)

You can easily make a good meal out of lentils, tin tomatoes, spices and rice. 1 cup of lentils goes a long way :) Dried beans can also be prepared ahead and frozen if you have no time, and it generally works out a lot cheaper than buying canned beans all the time (there's also less packaging involved). I always keep good sized jars to store dry goods in if I buy anything in them (such as large jars of olives, instant coffee, pasta sauces).
