Whether you are a newly crowned vegan, a lover of vegan cuisine or a long time member of the vegan community, there are some staple pantry items that are super helpful to have on hand to allow for a smoothly executed vegan meal. This is in no way an exhaustive list. There are definitely other plant based pantry items that people love to cook with, but I wanted to make sure this list reflected what you would see in my recipes as well as what I use on a daily basis. Keep an eye out for upcoming recipes that feature these ingredients (I will update this post with the links to make them easy to find)!

If I’ve missed important ones, feel free to add them in the comments!

What Swedish Fika taught me during a time of social distancing

As I was organizing my photo drive due to pure boredom, I started thinking back to my time in Sweden and quickly began to crave cinnamon buns. Why?

It has taken me a long time to get around to writing this post as I find myself constantly bombarded with information on social media about how we are all “supposed to eat”. This post was important for me to write because it seems we all need a reminder that the information we find online is not always correct and is NEVER one size fits all.
