TOP 10 Ingredients in My Pantry

 

My Top 10 Ingredients (that I always have in my pantry)

 

When I started out trying to follow the FODMAP diet I had already identified a few foods that I needed to replace or learn to live without.  However, as I started to get better at reading labels I was totally blown away by how many processed products have hidden ingredients.   I love cooking, but I hate the hassle of always having to read labels and always having to prepare something from scratch. 

 

These items represent the safest of my safe list.  I almost always have them in my pantry cupboard – if you are starting out on a FODMAP diet, take the time to find these items in a store, clear a shelf and start your ‘safe shelf’:

 

Top 10 Ingredients that I always have in my pantry:

 

1:  Olive oil

2:  Salt and Pepper

3:  Aylmer Accents Fire Roasted diced tomatoes (no garlic!)

4:  Rice pasta

5:  Egg Replacer

6:  Quinoa

7:  Canned Tuna

8:  Rice

9:  GF cake mix

10:  Dairy free chocolate chips

 Chocolate Chips  Alymers tomatoes

 

You will note that there aren’t any items that would be kept in the fridge or in the fruit bowl.  That’s for another list.   I probably will get some flack for putting in the Gluten Free cake mix and chocolate chips, but I gotta have something sweet from time to time.  I’ve found some dairy free chocolate chips and can make myself some respectable chocolate chip cookies  using the cake mix – having these in the freezer really saves me when I’ve got a chocolate craving !

 

Looking through this list I think: Good heavens… this really is the most boring ingredient list in the history of ingredient lists…!  Obviously I need to break out of my shell and try a few new products….
