A look in My Pantry

Before we get into things I want to make it clear that the best thing you can do for your health is to eat fresh food as often as possible.  However we all know the reality of things.  We live in a fast paced hectic world and convenience prevails over fresh a lot of the time.  So in order to escape the trap of eating a entire bag of potato chips,  because you were hungry and that is what was there, stock your pantry up on better healthier options. 

Some of these items can be used as a meals, snacks or additions to meals.  Some of the items have a indefinite shelf life and others only a couple months before they may start to go rancid (some of the oils especially if exposed to sun and heat).  Whatever the case may be I have found all these items useful to have on hand in order to keep me satiated with out the guilt.  A spoon full of coconut oil will go a long way, yum!

I went through my pantry before posting this and noted which items I currently DO NOT have on hand.  As you will see, red text, there are only a few currently missing from my stock.  Having most of the items at any point in time lets me avoid the excuse of using something unhealthy to cool because that is all I had and I was hungry (as a side note, 80% of these items I have are organic and sourced from a quality producer).
