Stocking my kitchen part 2

I'm taking a few minutes while I have a beef soup simmering on the stove to share more staples I keep on hand. The more odd ingredients you have available in your stock, the more likely it is you might whip up a quick treat. It's all about planning. I know for some of us it is a foreign thought. It used to be for me. It was a HUGE learning curve for me. Before long it becomes second nature to plan ahead and have treats on hand to avoid the dreaded stop at the convenience store for a snack you might regret later.
So lets get to it....

Flax Seed Meal
Arrowroot a thickening agent
Almond Butter

Almond Milk,
 I add a few drops of liquid stevia to make this a
chocolate milk treat

Dried Fruits, dates, raisins, apricots

Organic Figs

Coconut Milk replaces milk in my coffee

Creamed Coconut, added to soups
or used in place of butter
Butter substitute
Xanthan Gum often used in gluten free
 baking to add volume

I will share more in the near future.
I'm going to bake soon to stock my freezer with something delicious. I hope you can try a new recipe with me.
