Part 1: The Plant-Based Kitchen

I remember when i decided I wanted to start eating more healthy. I was not sure where to start. I did not wake up and fill up my kitchen with new items. Not at all. I simply started including more of what I already knew I liked in my pantry. That is my suggestion to you. I do not want you to throw things away simply because its not in my blog or a book you read. Simply look at things that people suggest and if you think you like them, next time you are out shopping add it to your pantry.
