Our Whole Foods Pantry Staples



I thought I'd post this for anyone interested.  We try to purchase as much local/organic as possible.  Most of our meats are free range meats.  I don't want to have to label everything "organic", "free range", etc...  We don't have an actual pantry but we do have some cupboards.  The picture above is of a dream pantry.  The picture was borrowed from here.  Oh and hubby makes most of our condiments which is cool!

Hubby does love to bake and has his own baking supplies that I don't use.  Things like flour, sugars, etc...  Here's what I personally keep on hand.  Happy cooking!
