In addition to being a three-time SI Swimsuit model, Katie Austin is also a certified fitness trainer and health coach, so we often turn to her for workout- and wellness-related tips and tricks.

On Thursday, the 30-year-old shared a TikTok in which she walked her followers through her top seven kitchen staples that she always has on hand for simple and “healthified” meals. If you’re looking to stock your own pantry and refrigerator with the essentials, consider Austin’s list below.


Austin shared that she regularly reaches for avocados as a healthy fat source “either on salads or with eggs in the morning.”


The reigning co-Rookie of the Year always has lemons in her kitchen for “roasting vegetables, salad dressings, [adding] in my water” to add freshness to a variety of dishes.


Great on their own as a sweet treat, Austin also uses the high-fiber fruit as a natural sweetener in smoothies, deserts and oatmeal.

Green onion

“I love green onion so much, if you know me, not only for taste but a good garnish,” Austin noted.

Olive oil

Austin believes every home cook should invest in a good olive oil, as cheap ones tend to have seed oil mixed in.

Rolled oats

In addition to oatmeal and overnight oats, Austin enjoys using oats in smoothies and cookies. “It’s just great to have in your pantry,” she said.


“I literally always have broth on hand,” Austin stated as she showed off chicken, beef and vegetable broth containers in her refrigerator.
