My Clean Pantry Essentials

After an incredible trip to the US – with impeccably prepared meals at some of my favorite restaurants – I’m actually quite excited to be back in the kitchen! A nourishing home-cooked meal is such a blessing, and I find so much pleasure in creating unique, healthy dishes. I’m inspired after my travels, and one of my first stops when returning home is the market so that I can stock up on my clean pantry and fridge essentials. I discuss these items and how to incorporate the in some of my favourite recipes in more detail in the Clean Life, but I wanted to give you a sneak peek of what you can always find stocked in my pantry and fridge.

    What fermented veggies do you use and how do you incorporate them? What is LSA mix used for? How else do you incorporate Apple cider vinegar into your diet? Which gluten free pastas are best for Italian style dishes? How do you use the super foods? I’ve bought a few of these things before, because I read about the benefits, but they just sit in my pantry our fridge for months after expiration till I finally throw them away; & all because I have no idea what to do with them.

    • Hi Amanda – these are amazing questions and I want to answer them in a blog post!! Love Jess xx
