Hi, hi, hi!
After our vacation ( posts coming soon!! ) & the holiday weekend, I’m very much back to a packed editorial calendar. Sometimes there’s something just soothing about stepping away from the day to day. Traveling re-inspired me & has kicked my ass in gear to create valuable content.
Recently, our pantry has turned into its own experience, which I prefer. When I put effort into something like styling a pantry, I have to really go for it.
That being said, since these pictures have been taken, I have planned a VERY, VERY KHLO-C-D pantry revamp. Basically we’re in the process of organizing the shit out of it…even more. YES, I am psycho…but you know that.
Basically the batshit craziness was real at The Container Store & Target this weekend when I bought a bunch of organizers for my lentils, steel-cut oats, witch doctor tea, etc.. The newly styled pantry will be very theme oriented. Also, switching all plastic to glass. I live for projects like this.
Ok but right now that’s not relevant BECAUSE we’re just discussing the foods/drinks/ETC that are in the pantry…I’ll leave organization for another post.
Before we get started let’s address the disgusting shelf to the left: the disgusting shelf to the left is exactly that: the disgusting shelf to the left. All the things I want to throw away but can’t because…WELL, Michael. He has like whey proteins ( not a fan ), men’s body stuff, & some vitamins I don’t agree with ( HA! )…But with living with someone, comes compromise. So for now, he can keep the disgusting shelf to the left…until I slowly throw it away over the next year blaming it on someone else ( KIDDINGGGGG ).
Water-wise, we always switching it up. Right now loving Penta & Essentia! Is anyone else a water snob? Can’t help it.
Ok, let’s get right into it, shall we?
I always have ‘guy food’ on hand. When you live with a guy this is sort of mandatory. So the first five things are going to be very boy oriented:
Annie’s Cheddar Squares
Black corn chips
A couple of candy choices ( champagne gummy bears & brownie brittle )
Nuts ( organic raw almonds, pistachios, & pecans )
Holy Crap Cereal ( a FAVORITE )
Brown rice pasta
Our favorite coffee ( Ralph’s from NYC )
Organic black beans
Rolled oats ( to make cookies! )
Gigi’s Remix Granola
Raw coconut sugar
Organic spices & herbs:
Teas, honey, syrups, etc.:
CALM Tea ( BYE-BYE ANXIETY tea!! HA )
Iced mango green tea
Raw matcha green tea
Smooth Move all-natural tea
Raw, local honey
Real maple syrup
Red wine ( huge Pinot Noir fan )
Non-GMO popcorn kernels ( I like to pop my own & add cinnamon )
Chia, hemp, flax seeds AKA ‘Magic Seeds’
Plant-based protein powder ( this brand & this brand )
Italian extra virgin olive oil
Red wine vinegar
Mushroom powder ( will do a post )
Raw, unrefined coconut oil
Firstly, can you tell I like tea? I love tea. Tea is the best skinny tip EVER. You can’t go wrong really. Iced, hot, lukewarm…just tea for me PLZ.
To touch on organization for one second: check out these pantry organizers for:
chips, cookies, etc.
chic oil & vinegar bottles
Tip: if you’re on a budget, a couple of good, old large Mason jars are ideal. They look so CUTE with food in them. Plus they’re reasonably priced. Like, very, VERY reasonably priced.
Ultimately I feel like a pantry is kind of like a closet or bathroom. Maybe people don’t see it all the time but it should be organized & cohesive for YOU ( & even your significant other too ).
I’m thinking a PANTRY TOUR VIDEO too…anyone else? Maybe even on Snapchat? Or YouTube? Thoughts?
For a full grocery list ( including my fridge! ) check out TSC Bombshell Body Guide.
Alright, that’s all I have. We’re in bed watching The Godfather sipping hot peppermint tea like 80 year olds. & can you believe it: I’m still jet-lagged. If any of you have any jet-lag tips, I’d very much appreciate them!
Love, lauryn x
