Have you ever REALLY looked at those packages of fish sticks in the grocery store? Yeah… there’s a long list of additives and preservatives – and it’s nearly impossible to find a gluten-free version that isn’t loaded with junk.
Luckily, you can easily make your own in just 20 minutes. And this dish is a favorite with my kids. I usually make it at least once a week and there are never leftovers – yes, it’s THAT good.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
