Natural Pantry Essentials
I love home cooked meals, so I always make sure I keep natural pantry essentials on hand. When I have easy access to good ingredients, I can always put together something healthy and delicious for my family and friends.
Each March I attend Natural Products Expo West in Anaheim, so I can learn about new products and industry trends. A lot of the recent innovations are ready to eat items, but I also found a variety of products that I'll use regularly as I cook and bake at home.
It's great to have natural options for oil, sweeteners, salt, cleaning products and paper goods, so I can feel good about the meals I create.
Check out my favorite finds in the slide show, so you can discover new products to try!
Lakanto Monkfruit is an excellent sugar substitute, and is a family favorite. It has zero calories and is zero glycemic – zero!!! However, the thing I like the best about it is the good taste, and that there is no odd aftertaste. It’s just sweet goodness.
It works well for baking, and is good in coffee and tea.
