My Pantry Staples - Beaming Banana

My Pantry Staples

My main rule when stocking our pantry is to ALWAYS check labels/ingredients. People are easily fooled by labels saying products are “natural” or “healthy,” or are often surprised to learn they’re consuming something with tons of added, unnatural sweeteners – so make sure you’re really reading those labels to makes sure you’re buying exactly what you want!

These are staples, so obviously there’s some additions/variation depending on the season or what we’re currently enjoying the most.
