Shopping List for Essential Cuisine DVD Series

Below is a list of all the food items featured in the Essential Cuisine Series. The lists are divided into 3 sections just like the DVDs are. First there is the Raw Food Basics and Entrees. Next is the Raw Desserts and Salads, and then the a la Oils Series. The items needed to make the Cultured Veggie and Kefir follow. You should have all the recipes from the DVD’s and the E-Book. 

As you will note the amount or quantity is not listed next to the item. Here is what I suggest. Print the list below. Once you make a decision as to what you are going to make, locate the item below from the recipe and then write in the quantity next to item. You can use this list while you shop. Or, you can transpose your ingredient list to our own shop list. I like to list the items in groups as they would be located in the store. This saves time running up and down the isles.

You can purchase many of the following items in the bulk section of your whole foods grocers. Of course, you can purchase them packaged as well, but they will be much more affordable when purchased in bulk. These should be all “raw” of course. As for some of the other specialty items, you will most likely not find them in your local grocery store. You will, however, find them at your local whole food grocers and/or health food store.

Please check our website for specific products that we recommend and used in the series. Many of these items can be purchased on line and mailed to you. I do this for several of the items I want around all the time. As for your produce, it is always best if you buy locally, organic of course. One of the most powerful statements we can make for a sustainable food supply is buy locally. Find your local Farmers Market and purchase all your fresh produce once or twice a week. It is fun to visit your local markets, talk to the farmers, and support their worthy work. What is available dictates your menu for the coming week. Most of all the Essential Cuisine methods can be adapted for different fresh foods. Enjoy, and remember to make every bit count!
