Pantry Must-Haves!

Our pantry is the most important room in our home – it houses the secrets to our healthy minds and bodies, and therefore the building blocks to our happiness!

So for all my friends that have asked what to stock in their pantry, here is a fairly comprehensive list of must-haves, especially if you read my blog! (thanks to Lisa Marshall aka Trek Athlete for urging me to get this one posted!).

There is a reason I keep every one of these foods in my pantry, but including these all in one post would be far too much for anyone to read and far too long to write down for my hyperactive brain.  I do promise to answer all questions in the comments and will elaborate more on these foods in my instagram posts and future blog posts!  This is not an exhaustive list, but the foods I use on a weekly basis.
