Paleo Pantry and Fridge…Take a Look!

Stupid Easy Paleo is back after a 4 month hiatus! I know you’ve all been waiting with baited breath. But really. Took some time off of blogging to train (besides working full time and having other responsibilities) but now the season is over–albeit prematurely due to injury–so I’m resurrecting the blog with a new twist: that’s right, lots of me on camera. So many chances for self-depricating humor and sneaking in Chem 101 when I can…muahaha! If there’s something Paleo-related you’d like me to do a short segment about, put it in the comments here, and I’ll take a crack at it. And please, be kind…I’m not a professional actor, tv personality or video editor. You may laugh, you may even cringe…but you’ll definitely learn about how to cook paleo, the simple way.

So to kick things off, I decided to open my pantry and fridge to all of the universe my 3 followers! Now you have a chance to see what it looks like to keep paleo supplies on hand. I swear none of my pantry items were rearranged, and I didn’t clean up my fridge. Truth. And for those of you who prefer to read what I keep on hand (or can’t watch because you’re reading blogs while at work), here’s a list of my staples:

Pantry:

  • Herbal teas, decaf coffee
  • Coconut milk (full fat, canned)
  • Canned pumpkin, tomatoes and olives
  • Canned salmon (love Trader Joe’s skinless, boneless), canned smoked oysters and anchovies
  • Sweet potatoes and yams
  • Onions and garlic
  • Flour alternatives: coconut and almond mostly
  • Assorted dried fruits and nuts (moderation only please!)
  • Almond butter or coconut butter
  • Spices…tons! The more variety here the better.
  • Good fat sources: coconut oil, olive oil and ghee (clarified butter) are staples

Fridge:

  • Fresh veggies (duh!) and occasional fresh fruit (I just don’t love it so I don’t buy much)
  • Lean meats and seafood
  • Sometimes HIGH quality bacon (think organic at minimum)
  • Eggs (I keep at least 2 dozen on hand at one time)
  • Condiments: Red Boat fish sauce, mustard (no sugar added), fresh sauerkraut, etc.

So that’s that!! Hope I charmed the pants off ya and that it gives some of you a jumping off point for your journey with paleo (or some new ideas for you seasoned pros)!! Stay tuned for another video coming soon…a recipe for ceviche!

  2. Hi! I got to your site from melissa’s ravening from well fed. Can you make a video about traveling and paleo? O have been paleo for 3 months and travel fir work 50% of the time and am finding it socially difficult ( when with customers) and just plain difficult to explain with co workers. Thanks!!!!

    • Hi Jess! Thanks so much for coming over and saying hello. I’d LOVE to do a video about traveling and how to incorporate paleo into a busy schedule (as well as some tips about how to explain what you eat–and why–to others). Looking forward to helping out!

  3. Thanks! I found this site in researching the Paleo lifestyle. My husband and I are just getting started and I’m going to keep an eye on your posts!

    • Thanks Jason! Wow that’s a tough question. I would explain what you are going to undertake in terms of your dietary choices and ask that they respect your wishes. I have heard of some people who even separate their pantry or kitchen shelves into “your food” and “my food”. Unfortunately, all attempts I’ve ever seen to help people see the light/convince them to change usually fail. They will start to notice your results (whether from a health/performance/appearance standpoint) and if they are ready to learn more, they will eventually come to you.
