Live to Live Grocery List

It’s grocery day! I don’t know about you, but grocery day isn’t exactly my favorite day of the week. Why? Because I inevitably forget something, or I decide to try a new recipe later in the week and I don’t have an ingredient that I need.

Here’s my solution: A trusty list of staple foods and spices that Tyler and I always have in the kitchen. I might still forget the toilet paper, but with these ingredients we can make practically every Live to Live recipe.

Next time you run to the store, take a quick look through this list and start gradually adding these staples to your pantry. This way you’ll always have what you need for a recipe, even if you decide to try something new!
