Happy New Year Friends and HELLO 2020! I can not believe we have just entered into a new decade already, but I am totally here for it! With that being said, I know that there are differences of opinions in whether or not setting a “New Years Resolution” is effective, but I am one of those people who really enjoy doing it. I look at it as an opportunity to create a new/fresh start and realign my goals and desires for the year ahead. I find it extremely helpful to write out all of my goals for the days, weeks, and months to come. This significantly helps me to stay on track to achieving them.
One of the most common New Years Resolutions for many people is to eat healthier! Luckily for you, I have put together a printable list of my TOP HEALTHY PANTRY STAPLES, that will help you achieve a healthier kitchen and diet.
In order to make healthy eating a natural part of your everyday lifestyle, you need to set be sure you are setting yourself up for success. Stocking your pantry with the right foods is a GREAT way to ensure you will make better choices, consistently.
With so many dietary theories and nutrition fads out there, it is no wonder that many people are confused about food. I know that was something that I would find extremely frustrating, in the past, before I learned to cook with simple and Whole Foods as my general rule of thumb. I remember feeling that just when I thought I was eating something that was considered “Healthy”, a new headline would come out saying to no longer eat it and that it can cause x, y, and z conditions.
Aside from the ever changing nutrition guidelines, it is also confusing knowing how to accurately read nutrition labels, since the food industry uses labels as a way to trick you into buying their products.
For these many reasons, I felt it was important to create this pantry guide for you. My goal is for it be a useful guide for you, indefinitely! I made sure to provide you with a simple list of my own pantry essentials, which include all of my favorite spices, oils, grains, condiments, nuts, sweeteners, canned goods, and flours that I use regularly.
You will soon realize that by stocking your kitchen with these healthy pantry staples, you will be making a big impact on your health and that of your families health!
