Sneak peak of my new pantry!

As you all know I moved from a tiny little row home in the city where storage was hard to come by. The cartoon above depicts how tiny our little make shift "pantry" was..... actually it was a storage closet to hide the switch box. So, as a girl who loves cooking I dreamed big of and organized pantry.

In preparation for the move (ok this may have been a year before we even sold our house) I used a gift card and bought all these cool glass jars from Crate & Barrel and broke out my label maker- Best Saturday Night Ever!  Then they were shoved and stacked back into our tiny little pantry just waiting for their own space one day.

Forgive the primed cabinet (we are painting them all) but here is our cool corner cabinet we are using to house our spices and liquids.

Cabinet Must Haves-
  • Natural Peanut Butter
  • Braggs Liquid Aminos
  • Raw Honey
  • Nutritional Yeast (gives dishes a "cheesy" flavor)
  • Coconut Oil
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Balsamic Vinegar
  • Sea Salt

Here is a close up of our tiny little jars- I love it!

Any here is our pantry- each jar has its own space and according to my dad it looks like a "damn health food store" (that just may be the best compliment to date, or at least I am taking it as a compliment... haha!)

We have all our grains, nuts, seeds, dried fruits and flours ready to be used to create a delicious meal.

Pantry Must Haves-
  • farro- perfect for any warm breakfast
  • buckwheat groats- perfect for muffins or vegan overnights 
  • oatmeal
  • almonds
  • walnuts
  • raisins
  • chia seeds- perfect to add to yogurt, soups, oatmeal, salads etc.
  • hemp granola- perfect topping for my acai bowls
  • wheatberries - one of my favorites to mix with roasted or fresh veggies
  • quinoa
  • chickpeas- I add these to everything
  • dates- cut in half with a little sea salt and a pecan pressed inside (its like salted turtle)
  • cacao- great to make impromptu hot coco or flavor a pudding or smoothie
  • tuna fish
  • ground flax
  • steel cut oats- love these!
  • lentils
  • goji berries
  • mulberries
  • brown rice
  • whole wheat flour
  • cane sugar

Kitchen before and after pictures coming soon!! :)
