A freshly stocked pantry would be such a good addition to our constant quest to eat cleaner and healthier! As we run out of things, we are making good progress on replacing with organic options. Besides being the "right thing to do", we all feel better for the change!

I must have the 365 Organic Vegan Stuffing. My family consists of vegans and vegetarians, so the stuffing makes everyone happy. Our Thanksgiving has changed in recent years, but the love coming through in the food never will. I love my family and want to share many more holidays with the people I love!!!

I can NEVER do without nutmeg. I put it in almost everything from eggnog to pumpkin pies and cookies.

Paxo Sage and Onion Stuffing. I know it's not exactly a Whole Foods item but Thanksgiving and Christmas cannot happen without it! I make it the way my dad does and his dad before him. I'll change anything else on the menu but I will not stuff my turkey with anything else!

The thanksgiving staple I cannot do without is all the organic vegatables.

Cinnamon! Our favorite baking for the holidays includes cinnamon and we can't do without it!

Blackstrap molasses is my must have! I use it in our water kefir for added calcium and iron. We also love to add it to our pancakes, sweet potatoes and corn bread for a touch of pure sweetness!! Nothing says "Thanksgiving time" like gingerbread pancakes on a cold morning!!

thanksgiving is truly a family time no matter the family as long as you have moment in life to share. If I was to win this I would donate the Thanksgiving pantry to one of the local food banks. But, keeping in mind people go hungry in this country everyday not just on thanksgiving. I am grateful for the job I have, the truck I drive, the food in my home, the home I do have. Many Blessings to All.

I can't make it through the holidays without Kosher Salt! Besides my turkey, I also love to brine pork roasts, and pork roasts with roasted apples and roasted root veggies are my very favorite autumn food!

I always like to have cranberry sauce, chicken broth, and bottled gravies on hand during the holidays. You can do a lot with leftover turkey or roast beef. Oh, and like someone else mentioned, canned pumpkin. Another staple with which you can do so much.

My favorite pantry item for the holidays is pumpkin puree! Pumpkin everything is what I like and you gotta have pumpkin to make any of it. Baking my own pumpkin is just too time-consuming, so pumpkin puree is my go-to item!

Thanksgiving is just not the same without pumpkin pie! Or a brined turkey! Gotta have those staples.

I cannot do without FLOUR for homemade sourdough bread, biscuits, pies, cakes, cookies, scones, pierogis, pasta and everything else the Holidays and cool weather encourages me to make.

I can't live without jalapenos for the jalapeno cornbread stuffing. It is a family tradition and Thanksgiving is not complete without it!

Could never do without flour

What a great idea! My pantry could use some cleaning out. I haven't reorganized it since my roommate and I originally found out that I'm allergic to amine, and she's gotten intolerant and allergic to soy. I'm quite sure it could use it. Thanks!

Dried cranberry. I use it in everything from stuffing to salad to dessert. It's a perfect fall sweet/sour addition to a thanksgiving meal.
