Now and then it's a good idea to review the contents of your pantry. Be sure to keep all the basics in stock: items such as salt and pepper, sugar, as well as keep on hand a variety of herbs and spices.
Even though it's a rare custom nowadays, it's still a good idea to plant your own. Try growing items like basil, mint, rosemary, and cilantro, among others.
There are also certain types of peppers that are among the easiest things to grow. Just place them in a small plastic bag with soil, then later transfer to a larger growing pot.
Also try to purchase in bulk, organically grown items such as cereal. It all adds up to maintaining the purity and nutritive value of good food.
