This minimalist kitchen starter set was specifically designed to encourage making homemade meals. If you have the basic essentials at your fingertips, it’s the first step in helping to discourage that quick run to the local fast food restaurant or grabbing that canned soup from the grocery story. Making meals from scratch can be as simple as cutting up some vegetables to as complex as simmering chicken bones for a healthy and beneficial bone broth, which is actually not complex at all. 😁
Homemade meals don’t have to be complex. Fresh vegetable juice and/or a fruit smoothie for breakfast, a hearty meat and potatoes with more vegetables for lunch and a steaming bowl of oatmeal with nuts and raisins for supper are all simple and delicious homemade meals. If you’re hungry in between meals, grab some fresh fruit or vegetables to munch on throughout the day. I have a weekly meal plan video already available on my channel here: WHAT WE EAT IN A WEEK. Those are just a few suggestions to get you started.
Below you will find a complete list (including the one item I forgot to put in the video) and as many links as I could find on where to purchase them. In some cases they won’t be the exact item because some of these products I’ve had for years and couldn’t find them online. If you have any questions about any of them, please let me know in the comments below! Thank you and have a super healthy and happy day!
