what to do when your immune system hates you

What's in the pantry?


my pantry list

This is a listing of safe foods currently stashed or otherwise on the regular shopping list. Three of four people here have major food issues, so this list is restricted to those things I personally can eat.

You will note that there isn't a whole lot of processed foods here. I feel like I live by Mr Pollan's book Food Rules most of the time. If I don't make it myself, and it's not made by someone I can trust implicitly to cook for me, I can't eat it without a bad reaction.

Due to yet another round of companies altering the ingredients and "may contain" in their products, I just lost the last of my packaged "safe foods". I currently try not to get too attached to anything with more than one ingredient. Ergo, over 98% of all food I can eat enters the house as a single-ingredient food. Time for more cooking from scratch if I want to eat more than a handful of things!

Pantry stock list





Flours and leavening

Note: Koda Farms only handles rice. Maskal Teff only handles teff. No possible cross-contamination.

Note #1: There is no difference between cream of tartar and tartaric acid.

Note #2: If you are using tartaric acid to stabilize eggs, you need a 1/2 gram per extra-large egg white.

Spices and extracts

Note: All spices are from Penzey's . They frequently have free shipping with $20 purchase if you get on their mailing list.
