*Note that all items are purchased organic whenever possible, but I didn’t want to write “organic” next to every item because that would have made me crazy.
**My kitchen includes a unicorn, sometimes several, which I think is essential, but unfortunately this isn’t an item you can buy. In fact, it isn’t an “item” at all, but a magical beast of awesome power. If you go vegan and embrace the magic within yourself, I promise you will meet a unicorn in the near future.
***I have provided links to some of the brands I use for certain pantry staples. Click on the highlighted items to find out which brands I recommend and where to purchase them.
****I did not include everything that’s in my pantry because that would be incredibly boring.
