The DIY Pantry Review: All Natural Pantry Staples Recipes

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.


Over the past few years I have spent a lot of time trying to find healthy alternatives to a lot of our foods. While some of the boxed food we find in stores may be tasty and convenient, it is unhealthy and filled with ingredients that aren’t easy to pronounce. Some of the foods though I had to concede I couldn’t easily make at home, especially with many of the recipes I found online taking hours, if not days to make from scratch. Recently, however, I was introduced to a book that could potentially be one of my new kitchen go to books – The DIY Pantry.

The DIY Pantry: What is It

Tired of having to purchase processed foods for recipes or spending hours of your time in the kitchen to make healthy alternatives? With The DIY Pantry, you can now make your own artisan breads, seasoning mixes, and kitchen staples for only pennies a serving and using only all natural ingredients.  With more than 150 all natural, budget friendly recipes that take 30 minutes or less to make, you can make amazing meals that are nutritious and healthy for your family. Once you have tried these recipes, you will wonder why you waited so long to make these natural alternatives!

The DIY Pantry: Overall

In all honesty, I think I have fallen in love with this book. As someone who tries keeping all the foods in my house as natural as possible, it is nice having a book that tells you how to make just about everything your house needs. As well, how nice is it to be able to open a book and find a recipe for an ingredient you found out you forgot to purchase. While some of the recipes may not be cost effective, they can save you from having to make an extra grocery trip in the middle of cooking. Other recipes are a great alternative to some condiments and kitchen staples with far too many unnatural ingredients. Based on my own experience with The DIY Pantry, I am happy to give this book an A+ rating and very highly recommend it!

    I like the hints you speak of, and going to bookmark so can look for hints from time to time. My hubby of 45 years, Dominick, and I are both 66 and I have health issues for years and he is facing an serious operation on March 24th, so have to get more serious about eating habits etc.

    What a great resource! With our little one on the way, we definitely are becoming more aware of the type of habits we have developed when it comes to food. Knowing we will be passing those habits on to our children motivates us to better consider the decisions we make.

    That sounds like a good book. My husband is on this eat healthy kick. Actually, he’s been that way. I’m the bad one.

    I would love to get this book! There are so many things I find in my pantry but don’t know what to make. I might be missing 1 or 2 ingredients.

    This is so something I could use. We have food and spices. I just don’t have a clue in the kitchen. I can cook maybe two dishes well. Other than that, I don’t cook at all.

    This is “just what the doctor ordered.” I too have been trying to eat healthy and I have been making some DIY food items. This is wonderful to have recipes for healthy alternatives all in one book. Thank you for reviewing The DIY Pantry and sharing it with us.

    This book sounds like and interesting read. I’ve noticed. like many others the amazingly high prices right now in the grocery stores. With a little common sense and knowledge gained from reading this book, I think we can all refuse to buy at least some of those over-processed, over-priced items in our local grocery stores.

    I am glad that there is a book that tells you how to make ingredients you might have forgotten at the store! Could save an extra trip in the middle of cooking!
