Below you’ll see just about everything I keep in my kitchen pantry. I don’t necessarily have all these ingredients on hand at all times and I hardly think that’s necessary. These are foods that can generally last ages so it’s nice to have a good variety on hand to be able to put together a recipe at any given time.
I hope this inspires you to fill your pantry with whole healthy real foods!

ODDS & ENDS As you can see, I love fermented foods! They last for ages and they’re so good for your belly. Plus I love the way they taste. For some, the sourness is acquired. Try a variety of flavors and toss some in your salad with raisins to ease it in.

Veggie burritos **I prefer not to eat anything canned; however, time doesn’t always allow for that. Look for BPA-free cans.
Nearly everything in my kitchen is organic and raw if possible. I also stock up in bulk at the farmer’s market whenever possible and then get whatever’s left at a local grocery store like Whole Foods. If you have any questions about where to buy something, let me know in the comments below.
