Rearranging My Kitchen Pantry - A Simple Step to Lose Weight

In the previous post, I told you how I rearranged my refrigerator.. In this section I am going to tell you how to alter the kitchen pantry.. If you are puzzled why I am writing a post on this, I would answer you as follows.. No one can think about weight loss after stocking Chocolates, Ice Creams, Sweets and Oil fried snacks in home.. So I thought I must write on this..

C'mon lets walk-through my kitchen cabinets..

This is a cabinet in which I usually store health drinks, coffee, tea like stuffs.. Now I have stocked it with the following items
  • Honey - For making lemon and honey
  • Raw Sugar/ Brown Sugar - I substituted regular refined sugar with raw sugar.. You may question me, why do I use sugar when trying hard to loose weight.. I use it in fruit juices and coolers
  • Palm Sugar and Dry Ginger Powder - for making masala milk
  • Green Tea - you all know a lot about green tea than me :)

These are the items I keep in my kitchen without fail.. I told you already that I am fond of millets.. Please do not think that I am advertising on brands or so.. These are the store bought items.. Whichever brand you feel the best, buy and use that brand.. I just wish to list the items, nothing else..
  • Whole Wheat Flour
  • Ragi Flour/ Finger Millet Flour
  • Bajra Flour/ Pearl Millet Flour
  • Red Rice Aval/ Red Poha
  • Ragi Semiya/ Finger Millet Semolina
  • Samba Wheat Puttu Powder

These are the spices I include in my regular diet.. These items help out in digestion and have a lot more benefits..
  • Pepper/ Milagu
  • Fenugreek/ Venthayam
  • Cumin Seeds/ Jeeragam
  • Mustard Seeds/ Kadugu
  • Carom Seeds/ Omam/ Ajwain
  • Cinnamon/ Pattai

These are the gram/bean items I feed myself with.. I never fail to take one bean/gram per day.. I have a variety like
  • Green Gram
  • Chick Peas
  • Black Eyed Peas
  • Red Beans
Here I have missed an interesting entry.. "OILS and FATS".. I am still confused to decide which oil to use and which to eliminate.. I use coconut oil, olive oil, sunflower oil and gingelly oil
  • Olive Oil for Sauteing Vegetables
  • Sunflower oil for Frying (not for me :(.. this is for my husband and baby)
  • Gingelly Oil for all kind of Dosas
  • Coconut Oil for Vegetable Curries.. (Still I am puzzled whether to continue the use of cocnut oil or skip it continuously.. I should consult a my dietitian before that )


  1. Cocount oil is full of saturated fat. It's good for frying better than sunflower oil
