Pantry Staple Recipes

12 recipes using pantry staples

During the height of the panic, I felt anxiety and dread about what was coming. I had read an early article from a doctor warning us about what was happening with Corona Virus in Italy and that we needed to take self-isolation seriously. At that point the NBA had been canceled, Tom Hanks had it and I just felt dread.

I found myself at the grocery store panic buying the biggest bag of rice I could carry in my shopping cart. Realizing now that my anxiety was talking I felt like I needed control. Everything felt very out of control and buying a few staples made me feel like I had control in a very serious situation.

As a meal prep specialist I know I can make easy meals out of the things I have but I wanted to share some easy Epicure meals that you can make with some pantry staples.

And PSA Epicure will deliver to you from their head office in British Columbia and Salt Lake City, Utah for our American friends.
