In my kitchen, condiments get used a lot... to create sauces, to add a little zip to a recipe, or to pull a salad together. Many condiments contain added processed sugar or are made with ingredients that are genetically modified. It's just easier on our bodies if we can avoid these items. So here are a few of my stand-bys.
OILS and FATS
A chef that I worked with in New Orleans once said to me "the fat is where it's at!" I have to agree with him that fat does really impart a lot of flavor to our foods, and the right kinds of fats can really play a positive role in our health. Whenever possible, I like to use oils and fats that are sustainably harvested, grass-fed (in the case of ghee), and organic. Here are a few of my favorites!
SEASONINGS and SPICES
Truly, I can't imagine a life without salt and seasonings! I prefer to use organic and sustainably harvested spices and seasonings whenever posible. The pricetag can be a bit higher, but I find them to have a more concentrated taste. This means you don't have to use as much to achieve the same result... so it's a win-win. I hope you'll enjoy some of these go-to's as much as I do.
These items are things I reach for on a near-daily basis. They can be used in a multitude of applications - from baking to smoothies to sauces - and everything in between.
Here are a few products I love to keep on hand for impromptu baking projects. Many of them are utilized in recipes from my cookbook as well as my blog.
MILK ALTERNATIVES (Non-Dairy Milks)
While some can tolerate traditional cow's milk, it has become an allergen and food irritant for many others. Even if you aren't allergic to milk or milk products, you may be sensitive to them. That is certainly the case for me and I feel much better when I don't consume them. Lucky for us, there are so many delicious alternatives available today!
KITCHEN TOOLS AND APPLIANCES
If you have my cookbook, you know that I think it's a must to have a high powered blender in your kitchen when you follow a clean-eating lifestyle. You'll find my favorite one below along with a few other things that are my kitchen must-haves.
