A kitchen filled with fresh, unprocessed foods tends to look a bit different. Unless a whole foods cook stocks up with a lot of dried goods or cans their food, usually their pantries look pretty bare. The day-or-two leading up to grocery shopping can also leave their fridge stark. I had grown used to the emptiness that happens by the end of the week, but then this last Tuesday a friend came over and asked to see how we eat. As I poked around my cabinets, and fridge I realized that it looked like we don't eat. So, I thought I would share my before and after pictures on the blog.
