Hi, hi, hi!
After reading this article by The Everyday Girl, I compiled my skinny pantry essentials that every bad ass chick should always have in their fridge.
And I made sure to keep it clear & simple- ignorance isn’t bliss, peeps. Know what the hell you’re putting in your mouth.

>> Dried Herbs:
Apple Pie Spice Mix: quite possibly the most delicious coffee addition. Made with cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, & cardamom.
Basil: use fresh if available, however keep this on hand just in case.
Bay Leaf: amazing in any slow cooked meals ( the flavor’s slow to release, so the longer the cooking process the better ).
Cayenne: my favorite juice addition. Simply sprinkle it over any fresh pressed juice. Cayenne is known to speed the metabolism.
Celery Seed: popular on fish, poultry, homemade bread, &/or on pickles.
Cinnamon: perf for a coffee sweetener. I also love this cinnamon pudding recipe.
Ground Black Pepper: add ground pepper to soup, salads, &/or any type of meat.

Red Pepper Flakes: my absolute favorite spice. I like this on pasta, pizza, spaghetti squash, veggies, &/or in soup.
Rosemary: add this herb to chicken, olive oil, &…wait for it…cocktails! Check out my favorite recipe here.
Nutmeg: my favorite to add to dessert. I also love sprinkling nutmeg on berries!

Baking Powder ( organic ): a staple in any baker’s pantry.

Extra Dark Chocolate Chips: my favorite way to eat these bad boys can be found here.
Light Brown Sugar ( organic ): the best choice of brown sugar for baking.
Powdered Sugar ( organic ): great for a homemade frosting recipe.
Raw Honey: I add this to my tea regularly because it’s anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, & anti-fungal. Just make sure it’s pure, raw, & unfiltered.
Stevia: sugar rots teeth. Stevia doesn’t. Annnnd it’s derived from a plant & doesn’t contain aritifical shit.
Unbleached Whole Cane Sugar: a must have for bakers.

Brown Eggs ( organic/farmer’s market eggs ): make sure they’re cage, organic, & free range. They’re a great source of protein!

Ghee Butter: throw your butter away & buy this. Trust me.
Fruits: fill your fridge with fruit; it’s easy to grab & fab for snacking.
Meyer Lemons: the best of the best of the best. Meyer lemons are my true love.
Red Onions: I eat onions like apples. Weird? Don’t care. They fight diseases, possess cancer fighting properties, & help reduce stomach cancer.
Sweet Potatoes: they’re filled with vitamins- B6, C, & D. Sweet potatoes are easily one of my favorite foods- so delicious with Ghee Butter too!
Veggies: because, duh.
