I love to have nuts, seeds, and various meal bars to grab to take on a summer hike, picnic or anywhere because I try to stay outside as much as possible! I also keep quinoa and brown rice on hand to mix with all the amazing in season veggies! Makes a quick, healthy, delicious meal!

My favorite pantry back-up snack is trail mix. As long as I have a good assortment of dried fruits, nuts, and of course, chocolate I am good to go!

Summer pantry favorites are trial mix nuts and croutons to prepare a cold salad for this hot weather.

I like to take a 365 whole wheat tortilla and put black eyed peas (canned), green leaf lettuce, red onion. Roll it up and eat for a snack or lunch....so yummy!

One of my favorite snacks is to take dates, chop them up, add some almonds, and top them over soy yogurt. Then drizzle some almond or peanut butter on top (preferably Justin's). It's vegan and delicious.

I like that I can make popcorn and sprinkle on some chili powder and salt.

My daughter and I love the Kashi crackers, we spread them with the 365 almond butter and slice fresh strawberries on top. We also add a drizzle of Agave to the top to add a little extra something. They are so so tasty.

In the summer, I like making cold grain and/or bean salads with whatever fresh veggies I have in the fridge.

I will whip up a mixed berry pie when unexpected guests are coming over.

Beans, beans and beans in what ever combination I have mixed with fresh garden tomatoes, what ever herbs are in the garden and grated carrots. Mix with fresh lemon juice and a great quality olive oil (pantry staple), salt and pepper to taste...voilà! You've got yourself a tasty and refreshing summer salad.

I enjoy hummus, putting in whatever fresh herbs I have on hand. The recipe is never the same, but always enjoyable. Our other favorite is home made pizza with artichoke hearts and fresh veggies.

Any kind of dried fruit is great for an on-the-go snack or to toss in a salad for a quick dinner!

My best summer pantry-based meal is frozen nuts!!!! Roasted nuts taste wonderful on their own, but I like freezing them before I eat them, because it gives it a little more crunch. It also makes nuts more easier and refreshing to eat when they're cold, especially during hot summer days.

I like to make meatless taco salad on week-ends, with black beans, corn, and the common veggies of summer (bell peppers, a jalapeno, green or red onion, tomato) with chips, salsa, and romaine. I also do lots of bean-rice/barley/noodle-vegetable combinations seasoned with pantry spices and herbs (Indian, Italian, etc.), or herbs from the backyard. Even our breakfast is pantry-based, with oats, raisins, cinnamon, and seasonal fruit with milk or soymilk (no added sugar). I also make a nice sweet-potato-home-canned-pear-cranberry salad sauced simply with vanilla yogurt. Nuts may be added as you wish. Simple and good.

I like opening a can of chickpeas and sweet corn and throwing that on top of some greens to make a yummy salad!

I love to throw together a simple trail-mix kinda thing with cashews, chocolate chips and dried cranberries. Makes me very happy :)

I learned to can salsa, so having chips on hand to set out a quick chips n' salsa is fast, easy, and delicious. I also always keep chickpeas and tahini so I can make hummus.

Anything with salsa! Tacos or fajitas are easy to make with beans and chickpeas from the pantry
