In today’s vodcast, I chat about the 10 Staples for the Traditional Foods Kitchen. And what do I mean by ten staples? These are the foods and food preparations that every traditional foods cook should be working into their repertoire as they progress on their traditional foods journey.

Get to know more about these topics in the following blog post sections:

These conversational vodcasts are available to the Kitchen Pioneers who have joined my YouTube membership community—The Traditional Foods Kitchen Academy.

Traditional Foods Kitchen Academy

My in-depth vodcasts are exclusively available to members of the Traditional Foods Kitchen Academy, who we call Kitchen Pioneers. You can learn more about my optional YouTube membership community, including members-only videos and exclusive perks.

This membership community is optional. I’m still publishing my weekly detailed instructional cooking videos on my public YouTube channel that you can watch for free. (Thanks so much for being a Sweet Friend and subscriber!)

In addition to links to the latest Kitchen Academy vodcasts, this blog post lists some of the public videos that I talk about in my vodcast.

The 10 Traditional Foods Staples

In my vodcast, I cover the importance of incorporating the following foods and food preparations into your meals:

  • Healthy Fats
  • Fermented Vegetables
  • Pastured Beef or Chicken (or Eggs)
  • Cultured Dairy
  • Fresh Fruits and Vegetables (in season)
  • Soured Grains and Sourdough Bread
  • Bone Broth
  • Soaked Beans and Legumes
  • Soaked Nuts
  • Oily Fish

Are you overwhelmed with this list? Don’t be. As I often say, if all you can do is roast a chicken and then use the bones to make bone broth, you’re on the right track!

But for those of you who have been on this journey with me for a while, as we venture forth into 2021, it’s time to start adding more traditional foods—properly prepared—into your meals. I explain how to do this and more in today’s vodcast. You can do this! And I’m here to help!
