wow!!! you have your kitchen stocked with most healthy foods, unfortunately here in India organic food is not so extensively available we get it only in specialty stores which is far off from my place so whenever we go that side we get it otherwise its normal food for us but i try to keep it as healthy as possible ...
Our pantry is much the same as yours REKHAKAKR, and additionally I have a lot of organic extra virgin olive oil on hand. One change we have undergone recently is to switch to certified organic foods. Our produce is now delivered to the house weekly, from a local certified organic farm that is just 3 miles from our home. They also deliver our eggs and rice, and some herbs, both fresh and dried. In our freezer, we have some local grass-fed beef and some organic hormone-free chicken and turkey. Fish I get from a local fish market, that sells fresh-caught fish from the California coast,just a few hours from my home. I used to buy frozen fish fillets but am now concerned about any fish coming from China.
I have an extensive spice shelf, rosewater, ghee, and other indian cooking necessities. Any baking I do is with whole wheat flour too. I think how this change makes us feel/affects our health will only be noticed in the long run. For now, we are committed to keeping our kitchen/pantry/freezer/fridge stocked with the most healthy foods possible.
