It makes sense to keep your Pantry as well stocked as possible. I have a fairly extensive list of items in my own well stocked pantry due to the fact that I cook daily and don’t want to be running out to the market every time I try a new recipe. I also like to keep a wide variety of grains and beans. I encourage the use of more whole grains and legumes in everyone’s diet. They are full of nutrients, fiber, and very tasty.

Yes, I ALWAYS have these things in my panty.
