Hello, everyone. I'm Summer Bock. This is Guts and Glory.
After JJ Virgin and I went through my pantry and discovered some amazing snacks that are things I would never eat, I showed her how disorganized things were and she gave me some advice about how to kind of set it up. I just want to show you the progress that I've made. Here we go. I'm pretty happy actually, so look at that. I created a little jar system and I'm using … Oh, there we go. I'm using all of these jars. Right when we walk in the pantry, this is what I see. I've got all my cookbooks that I like, my little maple syrup stash, and my little cacao stash for the snack time.
I have more packaged stuff that, honestly, I don't use very often. This is little crackers and things like that. I kind of use these when I'm traveling. I have some flour that I use from time to time, some pasta, but I don't use the stuff on this shelf very much. I have some sardines that I eat on salads when we're out of stuff.
Then down on the bottom shelf here I have my supplements that are just kind of a crazy mess. This is cool. I have this bin here with these little paleo turmeric wraps that I freaking love. They're so good. I use that instead of bread and I make sandwiches with it. Looks like here's some more sprouted crackers. I do like these from time to time. I feel like I've done a really good job. I'm pleased. You go on down. There's sort of a mixture here, but here's kind of the other situation.
I will say the update is that the boyfriend hasn't really changed very much of his eating habits at all. A little bit, he's been buying some really good meat and he is more aware… I don't know quite how to explain it. There has been some shift, it's just not … It's not easy to see it really in a certain way. I don't know how to explain it.
There is still some … You know, we still have our crazy Bisquick situation next to the liquor and there's still these peanut butter crackers, but you know what? He doesn't eat this stuff very often, so I'm still really trying to get to the place where he and I can go through here and actually have a bit of a pantry clean out where we can get rid of some of the stuff that he doesn't touch, that's too old, that doesn't really need to be cluttering up this space anymore. That would be my ideal situation. I have to say, this shirt translates much better in person than it does on video. I love this shirt, but, man, it looks like I'm wearing a giant orange balloon, folks. Well, there you have it. There's the update. I hope you enjoy.
