Primal Action Point: Upgrade Your Pantry

Inline_Food_Nutrition_Live-Awesome-645x445-01Often the first action people take at the start of the new year is to clean out their kitchen. Personally, I highly recommend it. There’s something gratifying about creating space for a new habit—and the foods that will support it. Yet, I know some folks hang onto previous food purchases to “cycle through” what they have on hand and gradually introduce the new into their cooking routines.

For those ready to overhaul their kitchens—or for anyone interested in fine-tuning how they stock up for Primal eating, I wanted to point out an article I offered up just a few years ago that is as relevant now as it was then: “Top 50 Essential Paleo Pantry Foods.”

With everything from canned food suggestions to appropriate snack options to Primal/paleo baking supplies (several of you have asked about these lists this month), it’s an easy way to make sure you have everything you need on hand for good, Primal eating every day.

More to come today, everyone! Thanks for stopping by.

  1. I agree! This was such an inspiring step when I first went primal. It felt amazing to clean out cupboards and the freezer in order to start fresh. I’m sure it was an instrumental step in my success. Now I highly recommend a kitchen purge to all my clients before they begin the program.

  2. Great pantry list, and totally agree that Thrive Market makes it so easy. I would caution someone new to this lifestyle not to get overwhelmed…you don’t need every single item on the list to start. If I had to chose one oil to cook with it would totally be avocado oil.

  3. My pantry also includes mulling spice blend because it makes an incredible addition when brining pork or turkey.
