You should have seen my face when I learned that the First Lady — Michelle Obama herself! — wanted Refinery29 to participate in her #GimmeFive Challenge. It felt so major, I could hardly believe it. But, it didn't take long before I was just casually mentioning the FLOTUS collaboration at every possible opportunity. Hey, you'd probably do the same thing, right?
Mrs. Obama has challenged us to give her five ingredients every millennial should have in the kitchen in order to make quick, healthy, delicious meals. After much deliberation, we've landed on a stellar top five. Check your fridge and pantry for these must-haves, and if any are missing, head straight to the store — First Lady's orders.
