What's in your pantry? I'll show you mine

First things first: Clean out your pantry! Throw out old food and junk food. Replace with healthy foods, preferably all organic. Steer clear of added sugars, sodium, preservatives, artificial colors and artificial flavors. That’s a start!

This is generally what is in my pantry at all times. Some items should be stored in fridge after opening. Add these to your favorite recipes or use as inspiration for news ones!

Breakfast Foods
22 Days protein bars
Warm cereals- amaranth, kasha, steel cut oats, quick oats
Cold cereals- muesli or anything low in sugar
Granola- low in sugar
Milks- unsweetened and carrageenan free
Cereal and smoothie additions- unsweetened coconut, chia seeds and flax seeds
Protein powder- I like “Garden of Life”
Note- mix amaranth or kasha with steel cut or quick oats for a protein packed warm cereal. Top with nuts, dried fruits, fresh fruits, chia seeds and more! Never buy cereal or oatmeal packets; they are full of sugar, sodium, preservatives and other artificial junk.
