While browsing the interwebs, I came across a post on the Institute for Integrative Nutrition (R) Blog about Healthy Pantry Essentials.
What a great idea, I thought.
And then I decided to share my healthy pantry essentials with you (lucky!).
First, let me say that I go grocery shopping about twice a week. Why? Because I’m bad at meal planning and I’m forgetful/easily distracted.
I’ll make a list of everything I need, but leave my list at home because I set it down on the coffee table to run to the kitchen to get reusable bags.
Or I’ll forget to put things on the list in the first place. It happens all the time. All the time.
Anyway. These are the things that you might find in my kitchen at any given time ideal world where I didn’t forget everything.
Room Temperature Produce
Peaches or Apples (depending on the season)
Olivia’s Spring Mix
Meats in the Freezer
Bacon (backup bacon)
Grass fed beef bones (for making into broth)
Meats in the Fridge
Eggs (2 doz at all times)
Unrefined, virgin coconut oil
Kerrygold Butter for spreading (salted)
Unsalted butter for cooking
Maple Syrup (grade B for baking)
Unsweetened coconut flakes
Dark Chocolate 70%+
Green tea for kombucha
Herbal tea for drinking and gello
Just Blueberry Juice for kombucha
Plantain chips (of course)
That’s a peek inside my pantry. Well, my ideal pantry– aka all of the things I would have in my house at all times in an ideal world.
