The pantry is the true backbone of your kitchen. Keep it well stocked, and you’ll never be caught short when it’s time to make a delicious and nourishing organic meal for your family.
Weekly Meal Planning
Meal planning has come a long way since Mom’s tried-and-true Meatloaf Monday, Pork Chop Tuesday weekly routine. By incorporating smart strategies and stocking your pantry wisely with bold spices and seasonings, you can create two weeks of easy, full-flavored organic meals that never feel predictable.
If “leftovers” is a dirty word in your household, it’s time to give that mindset an update. We’re not talking about simply zapping yesterday’s dinner in the microwave — that’s how leftovers got their bad reputation in the first place.
Dinner should be a treat for the whole family, but too often it can feel like a battlefield. While some kids are practically born loving Pad Thai or spicy curries, for others it’s buttered noodles and chicken fingers all the way.
What is batch cooking? It’s a strategy for streamlining weeknight meals that involves pre-cooking simple components to be assembled into meals later on. Generally these items are minimally seasoned so their potential for mixing and matching is virtually unlimited.
Pantry Staples for Easy Meals
If you have better things to do than spend time at the grocery store, you’re not alone. Fortunately, it’s quite easy to reduce your shopping trips to once every other week if you stock your pantry with potent, organic seasonings and staple ingredients that really earn their keep.
