    Wow Amber! Thanks for sharing your kitchen with us today! I’m so glad to hear you also purchase only organic food (especially produce)! So important! And really, great job putting this post together. 🙂

    Wow! You have soooo much awesome food!! Where on earth did you find coconut flour? I’ve been wanting to make Natalia KW’s raw cupcakes, but they all call for coconut flour.

    P.S. Posting your link about the fund-raising campaign today. I’m just catching up, but that sucks about the cost of treatment! Medical expenses are ridiculous! I’m broke as a joke right now, but I will post the link on Facebook.

      Bianca- Bob’s Red Mill sell a dizzying array of flours, many of which are organic, including coconut flour, at http://www.bobsredmill.com/ Some grocery stores carry them in either the health food section or with the baking items. Hope this helps 🙂

    Wow! good job for doing this! your kitchen is amazing! I’d really love to know what spices you have because I feel like spices are soo important and add so much especially to a raw diet!

    What a fun post. I am jealous of all the fun things you have as ingredients and applicances 🙂 A chef’s playground for sure!

    what an amazing post!! OMG!! I love the details, the pics, the cabinets, your kitchen is to die for gorgeous and all that storage…I would be in HEAVEN! My kitchen is so small that you can touch both the wall to the left and the right without moving, yes, that narrow!

    You’ve mentioned you need a stronger juicer, but then you list that you have an Omega juicer. This concerns me because I’ve been strongly considering an Omega juicer. Would I be wasting my money?! The one I’m looking at is around $350. Idk the model number but I’m torn between centrifuge and masticating. Ugh. Too many choices!

    Wow, I love your new kitchen! You really have an amazing amount of storage in there. It’s beautiful! I love peeking into other people’s fridges and cabinets though… It fulfills my inner foodie voyeur! Thanks for taking the time to share this. 🙂

    Wow, Amber! Now I’m not sure if I’m actually more jealous of your kitchen or of your super healthy food stash! I totally relate to you on spending money on good food as opposed to cars and shopping trips. When I was still working, nearly my entire paycheck went to Trader Joe’s and the health market at Hy-Vee…and also bulk baking supplies from Amazon and my bakery supplier when I was still in the cake and pastry biz. My husband and I opted to move into a nice home, very close to downtown and to eat well rather than purchasing new cars. We also travel with buddy passes on flight and get free and dirt cheap hotels since my hubby manages hotels. Those are the things that will last and create good memories and great health. The plaza shopping trips wil come eventually, haha. 🙂 xx

    This amazing! We have the same knife block…all the other cool stuff, however, is missing from my kitchen. I would die to have your omega juicer as i only have 30$ centrifugal from aldi…

    Wowwzzza!!! What a great stock of goodies you have! It’s like Christmas just looking at it all! Thanks for sharing! Many positive thoughts and lots of love on your journey through this health challenge. You have acquired quite the tool belt when it comes to health and I know you will come out the other side with experience and knowledge that not only is helping you but helping and inspiring others! Thanks for your courage to share!

    Wow! Whenever I see these sort of kitchens I realize that there are two types of people I think: those who stash and stockpile food and those who don’t. I am the non stockpiling type. I love seeing other people’s stashes, but practical reasons keep me from getting that big of a stash going. That being said, how awesome to have that built up as you are in a tough time right now and it’s something to lean on.

  12. amber

    So awesome! I need those translucent cabinet doors, like yesterday.

  13. elamonster

    I’m a stockpiler too–I think having any experience of starvation makes you that way. It’s funny, my dad couldn’t care less about food but he gets nervous if something’s running low, as I do, whereas my mum doesn’t mind. In Israel, the stores are so close to my grandma’s apartment that if they run out of anything they just go get it.

    Gorgeous kitchen and great stash of wonderful, _varied_ food! And that’s on a restricted diet!

  14. Stacy

    What brand of organic local tofu and tempeh do you like? I have found organic but no local.

  15. A Tablespoon of Liz

    wow, I wish I had your kitchen, along with everything in it!

  16. Alayna @ Thyme Bombe

    Wow! Thanks so much for putting this together. I see myself coming back to this post again and again for the links to all these awesome and sometimes hard to find foods. I find it fascinating to see the wide array of things you have to work with, but I wonder if those new to healthy eating might be intimidated by it and feel like they can’t eat healthy without all this stuff. Would you ever consider doing a post on your top 30 or even 50 foods and products you couldn’t live without? I like seeing what other people consider their “staples.”

  17. Tanya Alekseeva

    Amberrrrrr!!! Is this for real? Or did you tell all your neighbours to store their food in your cupboards for this post haha. I’ve been meaning to do this kind of post for my own kitchen, as everyone always asks to see it, but no way am I doing it now, NOTHING will compete with yours! :)))

  18. Tara

    Wow Amber! Your kitchen stash is something to envy! I tried to keep a well-stocked fridge in the past, needless to say that I was bummed when we got hit by hurricane Irene and I had to throw it all out after days and days of no power. The funny thing is that I had just frozen a big batch of homemade seitan and I “saved” it by putting it in my in-laws freezer since they miraculously still had power. “Refugee seitan” that survived a hurricane, haha! Thank you for sharing this with us. Great post! : ) By the way, I’m one of those people that also makes food a priority and scrimps on things like new clothes and other “things.” I’d rather have a full fridge than a closet full of shoes. I love hearing that other people feel the same way. : )

  19. Lauren

    Wow! Thanks so much for sharing all of this with your readers! It’s always fun to see what other people have in their kitchen, and I love that you went into so much detail.
    Thanks for that, it’s always fun to see 🙂

  20. shannonmarie (rawdorable)

    Wow! I can’t imagine how long it took for you to do this post. Looks like you are well stocked for your new eating adventure. Thanks for taking us on this personal journey with you. Sending healthy positive vibes your way ~*~*~*~*~

  21. hungryvegantraveler

    Wow! That’s one hell of a post on one hell of a tour of one hell of a kitchen! I subscribe to your posts via email and this is the first time one of your posts didn’t fit in one email!

    You have a beautiful kitchen. My “kitchen” would make you cry (mostly because I currently don’t have one).

  22. Josette

    Great, informative post! I feel like I need to save it somewhere so I can revisit, lol!

  23. Caitlin

    wow! that’s a lot of food/ingredients!

    out of curiousity, i saw tamari is in the fridge. i keep mine in the pantry. should i not?

  24. Hannah (BitterSweet)

    I’m one of those weird voyeurs who loves looking through other peoples’ fridges and cabinets, so thank you for indulging me. 😉 Your well-stocked kitchen is like a dream!

  25. Britny

    I am so jealous of all of the food you have in your kitchen, Amber!

  26. Hannah

    Forget about Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s; I’m going to shop from your kitchen and pantry when I arrive. 😉 (And by “shop”, I mean “eat a whole damn lot”. xoxo

  27. Candy

    Thank you for sharing! I <3 your kitchen. So many wonderful yummy yummy things. Our tastes are very similar

  28. veganhomemade

    I adore this post! Our pantry items are incredibly similar, and it made me laugh that you used to use part of the second bedroom in your old place. The one item on your list that I didn’t know about was sunflower lecithin, very interesting!

  29. Mara

    Thoroughly enjoyed this post!!! These kinds of posts are my favorite – thank you thank you thank you!! <3

    OMG – I LOVE your kitchen. Would you like a permanent house guest??!!

  31. Pamela (@PrincessofTC)

    I just stumbled across your site/blog and I am in heaven, for sure! Your kitchen cupboards, pantry and fridge look a lot like mine. I can’t seem to stop buying food products that I ‘just might need for a recipe in the near future’! I came across some organic vanilla beans for a great price and could not pass them up. AND…I finally bought some organic, coconut flour from our local Mennonite bulk food store. When I asked the owner whom I know pretty well if I could buy a 25 pound bag from him, he shot me a glance as if to ask ‘What on Earth are you going to do with 25 pounds of organic coconut flour?’ After lookng at the recipes on your site, I know exactly where that flour is going to be used! I just bought a 9 shelf, Excalibur dehydrator and will be breaking it in with a few of your recipes. I cannot wait! I have slowly been incorporating raw food recipes into our ‘Almost Vegan’ diet (we love raw honey) and we feel absolutely wonderful. I notice that no one here has mentioned a Champion Juicer, which is what my hubby and I have…we love it! My next big kitchen splurge will be either a VitaMix or BlendTec blender. Any thoughts?

    I haven’t gotten around to trying Absinthe yet. Maybe I will one of these days. 🙂

  33. Tt in nyc

    I am flabbergasted. Speechless. You have re-defined what my fantasy kitchen is forever.

  34. Ronya Williams

    Your kitchen is awesome!!!! Yes I agree with the comment above!! This is my fantasy kitchen with all those ingredients!!
