Pantry Jars From IKEA

Remember this post from two weeks ago?  
Oh, and this one too.


I recently embarked on a weight loss plan that involves eating mostly plant based and raw foods.  This, as you can imagine, has completely shifted my needs in the kitchen and pantry.  Most of the meals I'm preparing call for fruits, veggies, raw seeds and nuts.  And when my pantry is in shambles, clouded with lots of processed canned food, its hard to find what I'm looking for.  Enter IKEA with their inexpensive and awesome pantry jars.




My pantry (and life) are still in transition as I shift from my normal American diet to a mostly raw eating plan, but my hope is that my pantry and kitchen will soon reflect my new diet.  Its a slow process, but getting my dry goods organized and labeled is a big first step. 



Ta da!

Still thinking about my pantry...

Not only to I need do detoxify my pantry and dump all the old, processed, post-date food, I also need to decide what goes back in and how to organize it in a way that makes sense.  I'm starting to round up all the empty containers in my house to corral the loose bits and food items, but I might need a trip to the Container Store.  We'll see.

Reorganizing my Pantry

I have an enormous task ahead of me.  As many of you know, I started a weight loss program / journey this summer.   I'm cataloging my process on a blog called Smaller Sarah.  One of the components of my weight loss is a huge shift in my diet.  This shift has also signaled a need to re-organize and re-categorize my kitchen, Inglis refrigerator and pantry.  I've been putting it off now for over a month, using Charlie's surgery as an excuse to sit back and ignore the mounting chore of sifting through the old food and creating a healthy detoxed pantry.  So today, I'm taking the first step, which for me is to get inspired by the anal-ness of others.  Let's do a little pantry-gawking, shall we?
