Share Article

Following Shape Magazine’s "Raw Week" instructions on how to stock a raw foods kitchen Massage School San Diego expressed their interest in ways to turn your pantry into a raw foods pantry.

During Shape Magazine’s "Raw Week," a series of helpful raw foods lifestyle articles were released this week, including hints on stocking your kitchen to accommodate a raw foods diet. Massage School San Diego (MSSD) supported the article’s content, noting that its simple instructions and recipes would help those interested in natural health and raw foods.

Staple foods included in the shopping list for a raw foods pantry were raw agave nectar, unpasteurized lemon juice, cider vinegar, sunflower seeds, raw almond butter, olive oil, tamari, raw cacao, raw cashews, and a variety of vegetables. Helpful tools for the kitchen included a good peeler, and, depending on your budget, a Vitamix, standard blender, or handheld immersion blender. MSSD provides helpful information to students looking for massage schools in San Diego as well as supports consumers that are making these healthy lifestyle choices.

According to, raw foods are defined as “purely plant foods: Fruits, Vegetables, Greens, Nuts, Seeds, Grains, etc. No foods from animal sources. This means no dairy, eggs, or flesh.” The site goes on to explain that raw foods are also foods that have never been heated to a temperature of over 38 degrees Celsius, which is the same average temperature of our human bodies.

Vitamix is a professional kitchen equipment manufacturer that has a home line of products for consumers that are geared towards helping people achieve better nutrition. The quality of the product and the price are both high. Vitamix states that they intend to help people achieve health by “improving the vitality of people’s lives and liberating the world from conventional food and beverage preparation boundaries.”

A peeler is a kitchen tool designed to liberate a fruit or vegetable from its skin when preparing foods. Peelers range from a simple, manual tool that resembles a knife, to a more complex electric powered machine that does the work for you. Most peelers cut a skin from a fruit or vegetable completely, but some are created to cut a decorative design or impression into your food.

Massage School San Diego supports the healthy lifestyle changes described in Shape Magazine this week, which included how to stock a raw foods kitchen.
