What's in my kitchen?

I'm a huge believer that if you stock up your fridge/cupboards with good food, you will eat good food. Makes sense, right? It's super important to always have fresh veggies and fruits readily available, along with nuts, seeds, grains, and spices. Personally, I like to get a smaller amount of groceries twice a week, so that way I have the freshest produce, and also because I run out of it pretty quickly (especially fruit). I highly prefer local markets because they often have the freshest items and it tends to be a lot cheaper than most grocery stores. 

In terms of appliances, a lot of the recipes I have on my blog require a food processor. I bought one this past summer and it is hands-down one of my best investments. It allows me to make my own almond butter, banana ice cream, raw cheesecakes, pizza crust, you name it! I have a Cuisinart and it's fabulous. I also recommend having a good blender that has the power to crush frozen fruit, as buying fruit frozen is the cheapest and most efficient way to make smoothies! 

Now onto what I try to keep in my fridge/pantry. Of course, I don't have all of these items at all times, especially the produce. I try to buy seasonally, so this is kind of an overview of what I would buy throughout the year. There is so much more you could add to this list, but this is mostly just based on my own personal preference!
