Partnering with runlikekale.com (one of my favorite people ever) to highlight 15 vegan pantry items that I can’t live without.  I get this question all the time and we thought it was fitting to kick off 2016 with a kitchen pantry makeover for a healthier you.  I hope you enjoy a few items here but to read the entire list click here.

So without further adieu, let’s gets this rolling.

1. Bob’s Redmill gluten free rolled oats.  I use these for classic oatmeal, overnight oats to grinding down to baking flour.

3.  Black rice.  A good rule of thumb is that if a food has intense color (think red bell pepper, red cabbage, or yams) will have more vitamins and minerals.  Those pigments pack a healthy punch!

4.  Quinoa.  Packed with protein, this pasta or rice substitute can be used for breakfast right on to lunch or dinner.  8 grams of protein per cup of cooked quinoa.  It’s also great in soup!

I’ll spare you all the miles I’ve run over the holidays – running equals sanity in my mind so suffice it to say I’ve had the highest running mileage weeks/month ever —— But here is my year-end recap.  Considering last year I finished at 1201 – I was quite happy with my progress.

Also I’m so excited to share that I will be a Pro Compression Ambassador for year 2!  Wasn’t expecting that and so SO happy!!!  Best wishes for 2016!  Promise to be back in full-swing next week once everyone heads back into work/school and I can get into the kitchen.  Love and happiness.
