I enjoy looking through Martha Stewart's site Whole Living.  It contains lots of helpful ideas for maintaining a healthy home (not to mention that it's filled with gorgeous photos!).  I think that it is important to remember that part of maintaining a healthy lifestyle is building a healthy and functional pantry.  Utilizing your spice rack is essential to minimizing sodium in the diet.  This is a short-but-sweet post on eight must-have spices for the kitchen.  

So what are your must haves?

Mine are black pepper, red chili peppers, cumin, cinnamon, and more recently a cajun spice mix I have come across (sodium free!).
