The Pantry Principle

From the days of hunter-gathers to modern shoppers attempting to decipher the complexity of products on food shelves today, the way we procure our food has changed dramatically. But our need for proper nourishment remains the same. Processed food, fast food, adulterated, and chemically enhanced foods make navigating the stocking of our pantries with healthy foods a truly mystifying chore.

Many of us don’t know where this food comes from, and we don’t know what’s really in it. Most people who walk into a grocery store think that all of the edible-appearing products on the shelves are food. The truth is that many of them are not! Many of these items contain ingredients that have the potential to be harmful.

This book will help you take back control of your pantry and your food source.


Mira Dessy’s book, The Pantry Principle is a real gem! If you eat, this book is a must-read – so you really know what’s in your food.  It is a user-friendly, comprehensive, well-researched and eye-opening resource.  I look forward to recommending it to all my clients!”

If you want to know exactly what’s lurking in the packaged food you eat, what chemicals are used to try to convince you that fake food is “real” — or if you just want the skinny on how to cook with fabulous fats, you cannot afford to overlook this book!  A must-read for all who care about what goes into their own and their family’s bodies.  And I hope that means everyone!”
