You know how it is: You start a new diet, get the urge to try a new recipe, or just make a commitment to eating more healthy, and with that, you usually have to purchase new food items. You take a trip to the grocery store or health food store and you buy these new-to-you ingredients that you may have never tried or even heard of before, and after your diet or your new recipe has passed, they sit in the pantry or fridge and collect dust, never to be used again. Two years later, in a cleaning frenzy, you throw out the interesting health food item and shake your head that you wasted your money. I’ve been there, and it stinks. While I love being adventurous and trying new things, I also hate wasting money and food. So when I got Gwyneth’s new cookbook and saw that I would have to buy a whole slew of new ingredients, I was a bit hesitant, but wanted to give it a try. While I’ve wasted my money on a few items, that I know I’ll never use again (gluten free breadcrumbs!), there have been several items that have now become staples in our home, and I’ll use for years to come. Here’s five of them.
