Thrive Market is by far my favorite place to shop for paleo pantry staples. It’s a membership site, kind of like a virtual Costco, but it’s worth it because they have so many paleo-friendly ingredients and snacks at significantly reduced prices. They also give away a free membership to a family in need for every paid member that signs up! You can see a picture of one of my Thrive Market hauls on Instagram here. I highly recommend checking out Thrive if you haven’t already. If you use this link to sign up, you can also enter to win a $10,000 shopping spree! (The links to Thrive in this post are affiliate links, so I do get a small commission if you join.)
Today I’m sharing a list of my top 10 staples for stocking a paleo pantry, along with some links to my favorite recipes that use those ingredients. If you have questions about Thrive or any of these products, feel free to ask in the comments! Spring is the perfect time to clean out any junk food that’s lingering in your kitchen and replace it with wholesome ingredients, and these products are ones I reach for again and again.
1. Red Boat fish sauce is an umami-packed miracle elixir that is irreplaceable in many Thai and Vietnamese dishes. It makes both the meatballs and sauce in this Vietnamese caramelized meatball “vermicelli” bowl totally irresistible, and also forms the sauce base for my fastest stir-fry, the pork and sweet basil stir-fry on page 156 of Paleo Planet.
