Whats inside our cabinets?

I thought I would follow up last nights post with a "Whats inside our cabinet" post! You can find all of our not so healthy foods in these cabinets, but everything is oh so tasty, and oh so hard to stop eating once you start! Our apartment, specifically our cabinet space, is very small...so I am apologizing now to all of the organized ones out there- these messy cabinets may stress you out :)

Meet our cabinets.





























Let's start with the snack cabinet...up first...
GOjI BERRIES!!! Goji berries are extremely good for you.
They are rich in antioxidants, particularly carotenoids
such as beta-carotene and zeaxanthin. You only need
a handful a day, so even though they are a tad bit
expensive, they are worth it!





















We love nuts. Almonds, Cashews, Cashew Crunch.
They are so good. I probably eat way more than I should,
but feel a little better snacking on them than potato chips.
I could most likely survive off of nuts. Ok I'm done...Here they are!




















Did you know just a handful of almonds a day can

significantly reduce cholesterol? They are some of the
healthiest, most "nutritionally-dense," energy-packed

fitness superfoods. And they're really good.




















Even though we try and be healthy, no American can
have a cabinet without potato chips. Thankfully, potatoes
are gluten-free...or else I would die. I love me my carbs.

Here are two of our favorite brand of chips:
















Jeff's granola. Cait's granola. (Jeff has been watching his
weight, so he has low fat granola. KIDDING. If you
know my husband, you know he never needs to watch

his weight. Which is, by the way, not fair :)
















I just started buying Almond Milk. Not only does it
last longer than regular milk, but has less calories and
you can get vanilla flavored which tastes quite yummy.
Tomorrow morning I am going to make myself a smoothie
with this, a banana, and frozen blueberries/strawberries.
I can't wait!





















Last, but certainly not least...I always love the bulk
section of Whole Foods & Wild By Nature. Here I
have bags of whole oats, flax seed, and nutritional yeast.
I use these ingredients to make granola bars, oatmeal,
cheesy oats, or shakes!
















Ok, enough snacks. Moving onto our other cabinet.
This one isn't as much fun...but its where most of our
meals come from. First, everyone should have brown
rice in their cabinet. Get RID of white rice. It lacks the

minerals, vitamins, and fiber that brown rice has.
















Here are some ingredients that I always keep
on hand for some of my favorite soups!

(Chicken Tortilla)




















And finally, I found this at a gluten-free
fair Jeff took me to this summer. Its very easy
gluten-free pizza dough! I LOVE PIZZA.




















So there you have it...a look into what Jeff and
Cait Jensen eat daily! Don't worry, this whole blog
won't be all about my obsession with food. Look back
tomorrow for a new post and remember to check out
my fitness log!
