My Healthy Pantry

One of the greatest obstacles to preparing healthy meals is the perception that nutritious food is bland. Who wants to eat boring old flavorless meals? Certainly not me, I love food!

At the beginning of my quest for healthy living I struggled to figure out how to make healthy food taste good. Truth be told, I was in WAY over my head! I was attempting to learn how to cook AND create nutritious tasty meals all at the same time.

Well, after much trial and error (lot’s of error…hehe!) mixed with some creativity I figured out how to create perfectly seasoned healthy meals that are hubby approved!

I also learned that the key to turning healthy eating into a lifestyle is to create meals packed with flavor that you crave and enjoy. Finding the right mix of ingredients that satisfy your taste buds is crucial!

Check out this video where I share the list of healthy ingredients stocked in my pantry and how I use these ingredients to create meals that I enjoy.

Happy cooking,


PS – At the bottom of this post I share my go to salad dressing recipe and favorite peanut sauce. Don’t miss out! ⇓
