Take a Wrecking Ball to Your Pantry

We follow our standard nutritional recommendation:

"...we can surmise that a modern diet should comprise of the closest modern equivalent to "animals caught via hunting, and uncultivated plant foods from gathering.

There are three macronutrients; Protein, Carbohydrates and Fat. Each of these must be present in every meal consumed. We are selective however about the types of foods that fit these categories. Protein: Lean and unmodified animal protein. Carbohydrates: Unprocessed. Nothing that comes from a packet, box or bag. Fresh sources with a short shelf life. Usually need refrigerating to keep fresh. Should all come from traditionally uncultivated sources. Fat: Minimally refined sources of animal and plant fat."

So based on these guidelines, what do we need a pantry for? Sure, there's some stuff, but not much. Nuts, seeds, olive oil, tins of crushed tomatoes, tins of tuna. Spices/herbs etc. Not much.

We could do a pantry makeover... though it would involve putting a wrecking ball through the side of your house. And there's always the inherent danger that I could clip your fridge on the way through, and this would be bad. For the fridge is where your food SHOULD live. Your fridge houses the fresh meat, seafood, poultry, the veggies, fruit... healthy stuff.

  1. Would that wrecking ball work on moths and weevils?

  2. A pantry has two uses. To brew beer and to grow mushrooms. I mean do you really have to ask?!?

  3. Wine storage
