I enjoy eating out like the next person especially while living in a burgeoning foodie city like DC. But I like the ease and economy of making my own food the majority of the time. I’ve been working to eliminate or limit certain things from my diet (corn, peanuts, wheat, dairy, red meat…). It’s just easier to do that by cooking many of my meals because I can control the ingredients. Below are staples I typically have on hand this season.
