Pantry Intervention

October 8th, 2012

Even though it is the middle of summer, it is time for some regular spring cleaning of your pantry and refrigerator in your kitchen!!

Small pantries are actually preferred to larger pantries, because the larger the pantry, the more likely you will be to fill it up with boxes and packages of food! It is encouraged to fill your pantry and refrigerator with as many simple, single ingredient foods as possible which will motivate you to make most of your meals from scratch!
