Cupboard/pantry basics


When anyone suggests changing your diet for whatever reason, the first thing most of us think is “Ahhhhhh. How much will that cost?”.

If you have the basics, you can always throw together a tasty meal. It doesn’t need to cost an arm and a leg and spices last for ages. Here’s what I always have to hand:

–  jars or containers of sieved and chopped tomatoes

–  apple cider vinegar

–  good balsamic vinegar (do check as some have additives)

–  wine vinegar

–  olive oil (extra virgin and light tasting)

–  coconut oil

–  no salt stock cubes (chicken, beef, vegetable)

– ground almonds

– spelt and coconut flour

– gluten free oatmeal

– unsalted nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds, hazelnuts)

– seeds (chia, pumpkin, sunflower)

– organic tomato paste (no additives)

– curry paste

– low salt soy sauce or oconut aminos

– spices (granulated garlic, paprika, chili flakes and powder, curry powder, rosemary, sage, tumeric, cayenne pepper, cumin, cinnamon, thyme, onion powder)

– salt and pepper

– vanilla pods

Look out for my chili recipe which has turmeric, cilantro, cumin, paprika and chili powder
