The author’s purpose of this book is to show you that creating a food pantry from the ground up is possible and won’t break your pocketbook. All it takes is a single step toward action, some meal strategizing and initiative on your part. She decided to experiment with how long it would take for her to start her preparedness pantry from the very beginning, and week by week, adding to it until she had reached her goal of having a one year food supply. Her grand experiment paid off and she successfully filled her pantry in three months’ time. In the book, she takes you through the process and provides weekly supply lists, tips and explains how to do it frugally.

What jolted me into action was her extensive detail on the growing concerns about the taintedness of our food sources. GMO’s hormones/antibiotics, pesticides and neurotoxins are all present in certain food sources. The FDA has even admitted to our corrupted food supply. For instance, in 2011, the FDA admitted that small amounts of arsenic are present in chicken meat; but stood by the product and said, “It’s safe to eat.” In The Pantry Primer, the author takes a hard stance on these corrupted foods and emphasizes how these foods correlate to your well-being and all play a part in the diminishment of your health. Regarding food ingredients that are difficult to pronounce, she believes “if you can’t picture what an ingredient looked like in its natural state, it probably isn’t something you really want to eat.” I believe that we should all be more mindful about the foods that we purchase and serve to our family. Daisy places emphasis on thinking for yourself and what is best for your family.

At 98 pages, the book is a quick read but packed with information!

The Pantry Primer is a one-of-a-kind resource for preparing to be self-sustaining in troubling times whatever the reason. The information is put forth in such a manner that once I started reading the book, I could not stop until I finished. Daisy differentiates between "right now food" and "later food," a concept everyone should take seriously. Not only does Daisy tell how to build a year's supply of safely put-up food quickly, she underscores safety practices and preserving nutrient content. This book ought to be required reading for every household in these uncertain times.

I think this would have been more helpful if I was just starting out, but at the age of 70 with a lot of food preservation and stocking up behind me it didn't tell me much new. It was well written but tended to repeat a lot of information and some of it was rather simplistic if you were not familar with the ideas presented. It was a good basic primer however for those that are just getting started

Not what I was expecting. I wasn't interested in all the fear mongering in the beginning, it was frustrating that it was pretty much a printed version of a blog, which had references to links (click HERE for more information type things) which obviously don't work in a BOOK. It didn't really give a very clear plan on how to build a pantry in three months, it was redundant with several sections appearing in the book more than once. Might have been great as blog, I was really hoping for more as a book, more specific, well though out and better edited.

This book is a sufficient intro to the subject and adequately touches (albeit, briefly) upon most of the available options for the consideration of building, maintaining and using long-term food storage. It is hardly all-inclusive, but offers a wealth of relevant links for further study. It does not not cover fermentation (for immune-boosting probiotics). Worth a read!

Publication is a little unprofessional. Looks like she published herself. I love her blog so ordered her book when I read about it on the readynutrition.com website. Good information on stocking for pantry preparedness, if you don't already have a three - twelve month pantry.
