What's in your pantry?

What's in your pantry? Do you have staples that you always keep handy? Let us know by replying below. You can even upload a picture of your pantry for others to see!

  1. I always keep quick-cooking rolled oats! I drop a spoonful of organic peanut butter (made with ONLY peanuts), my favorite "safe" fruits like raspberries or strawberries, and/or green bananas. It's my go-to breakfast. Anyone else?

    1. has it got to be organic peanut butter ?, I love peanut butter but I've been eating the ones in supermarket shelves ! πŸ™Š

    2. Maybe I should look into organic too! I love a spoonful of that peanutty stuff, but a nice jar of Jiff can sometimes do me dirty. Maybe the processed nature of the peanut butter and oils is an issue! Must do further testing πŸ§ͺ 🧫 πŸ₯œ. Wishing you the best! ~ Sawyer (team member)

  2. I always keep crackers of some kind (goldfish, wheat thins) and chickpeas on hand! I also keeps eggs, spinach, carrots and some kind of fruit handy in my fridge so I can make my breakfast for a few days and have safe foods to snack on!

    1. Not much in my pantry. There should be lots of canned things but there is very little in a can that I can eat any more. Shame, because all that stuff saves for years and essential in any emergency. I prepped for emergencies just before I got IBS, and found out that all my canned beans, lentils, peas, (staples before) were very bad news for me. So I gave them all away to a church collection for the local food bank. At least they did some good.

      So my pantry just contains: white rice, brown rice, cous-cous, some wild picked walnuts, canned fish like wild salmon, tuna, herring, and pink Himalayan salt (I daren't even use pepper) Also tea, and coffee (I am lucky to be OK with my morning coffee!) Also I am lucky with chocolate, so I have some of that stashed.

      But I have potatoes in the bottom of my fridge (yes I know they're not supposed to be stored in a fridge, but they go green and sprout if I take them out of there.) Then I have eggs, butter, brazil nuts and fresh vegetables also in the fridge. The veggies are: asparagus, spinach usually, kale, green beans, sugar snap peas, avocado, tenderstem broccoli, carrots, zucchini, pak choi, celery, and some little gem lettuce. Sometimes cucumber, pea shoots, alafalfa.
      In the freezer, I have frozen fish, and lots of my favourite bread, some frozen ginger pieces, and some veggies I froze for any emergencies. (such as getting snowed/iced in so I couldn't get deliveries or drive to town.)

      Oh...and...a bag of "naked" frozen chips (fries) that is just with potato and sunflower oil and no additives. I am able to eat those, halleluia!

      1. Wow, sounds like you are so well stocked. And I love how you rejoice with the fact you can have chips. It's the little things, right? I love my chips too. Stay well, Elizabeth (team member)

    2. oats/walnuts/pasta made from 100% spelt/white rice

      1. True. Because of this my main goal is not to have any sugar-packed foods at home. And about the stuff you see while walking through the city ... this is something I will have to live with. It's unavoidable and the sooner I get used to it, the better.

      2. We currently order all our groceries online and them pick them up, which makes it easier to not get tempted in the store. Maybe that could be an option for you as well? Karina (team member)
