Fully Stocked: Essential Ingredients for the Pantry
A well-stocked kitchen is the key to creating a wide variety of flavorful, Instagram-worthy meals any day of the week.
If you're like me, you're kind of obsessed with being prepared; whether that’s for making a week’s worth of meals or for nights when spaghetti with pasta sauce just won’t cut it. A well-stocked kitchen is the key to creating a wide variety of flavorful, Instagram-worthy salads any day of the week. Recipes and on-the-fly salad creations become way more doable and delicious when your pantry is already packed (and the yoga pants and slippers can stay on). Just mix together your favorite staples with fresh greens and get crunching.
