What’s in my pantry?

Thank you to Sprouts for sponsoring this article.

New to plant-based eating and not sure how to stock your pantry? I’ve got you covered! In this video, I’ll be getting a little vulnerable and taking you inside my pantry and refrigerator.

To be totally transparent, I cleaned my fridge just for you. I gave it a good wipe down and threw a few things out, and now I’m inspired to make that a regular practice. It looks so pretty! With that out of the way, watch the video to see some of my favorite staples I keep stocked from Sprouts.

Something that has taken me awhile to realize is that because I’m shopping for only two people, I don’t need to buy every piece of produce available. I’ve always put pressure on myself as a plant-based person to fill my fridge with fresh food, but that’s all changed after having to throw so much away. Now, I focus more on pantry staples and frozen produce, with a few fresh items that are seasonal or on sale.

Here are some things that I try to keep on-hand:
