Pantry Must-haves

Switching to a vegan lifestyle is the not easiest, I will admit that. However, once you have done enough research and get into the groove of it, it is actually too easy. The most important part is to always have your kitchen ready for you when you need to make something of substance. Having a stocked pantry with healthy items will keep you fit and lean by helping you stay away from buying unhealthy food when you are heading home. I have compiled a list of items I always have in my pantry and constantly buy if I start to run out. (This list does not include items I buy once in awhile for specific recipes).

  • Unsweetened Almond/Cashew Milk
  • Vegan soy-free Cheese (Daiya cheese is my usual choice)
  • Vegan Butter (Earth Balance)
  • Nutritional Yeast (Briggs)
  • Brown Rice
  • Quinoa Pasta (I am a frequent buyer of Ancient Harvest)
  • Quinoa (red or black)
  • Whole Oats
  • Chickpeas
  • Avocado
  • Carrots
  • Cucumbers
  • Tomatoes
  • FRUIT and FRUIT and FRUIT – whatever is in season, have it in your house at all times. This will cure any sugar cravings you have and keep the extra pounds off
  • Bananas
  • Leafy Greens – Spinach, kale, romaine or arugula
  • Natural Nut Butter – Buy nut butter that has only two ingredients or less!
  • Peppermint or Ginger Tea – Drink these every night after dinner
  • Organic inner leaf Aloe vera  liquid (George’s is the best!)
  • Raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar (Brigg’s)
