I understand everyone is different, and has different ways of doing things; but here is a list of a few things I keep in my kitchen, at all times for cooking, and baking on the regular. We don’t get food out often, so I do most of the cooking at home. Some things are used more often than not. Hope this list is helpful for what to keep on hand when cooking a lot at home! Of course you will keep things rice or pasta on hand, but again, everyone is different, and has different health concerns. So use your best judgement, and go with what works best for you, and your situation.
