The quest for health is a major focus of everyone’s life, and our own personal journey was the catalyst and reason we opened The Skinny Pantry.
My husband and I had struggled to lose weight for several years. Like many of you, we had tried different diets and failed. Finally, in 2008, we made a commitment to ourselves and to each other to get serious about getting healthy. But we immediately ran into a huge obstacle to our success: we couldn’t find the right meals and snacks that were low in carbs, sugar and calories to support our new healthy eating plan. We went from store to store, spent hours reading labels, and kept telling each other, “It shouldn’t have to be this hard!”
We realized that if it was difficult for us to fill our home with tasty and nutritional foods, it must be equally hard for everyone else in Southwest Florida. So we decided to provide the solution! After 20 years in the medical and dental field, I knew I wanted to make a difference for others who are committed to healthier living.
The Skinny Pantry’s mission is to meet ALL the nutritional needs of people on special diets. We stock specialty foods for people who are dieting as well as those who struggle with food allergies, celiac disease, diabetes, bariatric issues or other food-sensitive illnesses. We also cater to those looking for low-sodium foods or have health concerns such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol or heart disease. We believe that foods can heal and restore many of these health conditions.
We carry a large selection of low carb, sugar free and gluten free food lines, including Walden Farms, Dixie Carb Counters, ChocoRite, Stevia, PB2, Agava, Zero-carb Noodles (many varieties), Julian’s breads, Carb Crunchers breads and bagels, J. Rob Thinsilin, Paleo foods and more. We have hundreds of gluten free and dairy free products, such as Pamela’s, Against The Grain, Authentic Foods, Udis, Canyon Bake House, Amy’s, Namaste, Enjoy Life and Kinnikinnick. We offer delicious breads, desserts, snacks, baking ingredients and complete meals to meet every dietary need.
We also offer the highest quality nutritional supplements and carry local honey, sauces and handmade soaps.
Our goal at The Skinny Pantry is to educate our customers about what they CAN eat, and help them find food that tastes good and makes them feel and look great.
To date, my husband has lost 95 pounds and I’ve lost over 75 pounds. We have our health back and it is our desire and passion to help you recover yours!
At the Skinny Pantry, we embrace long-term relationships. Our goal is to offer quality products, personal service and nutrition education to all of our customers so they can make informed and wise decisions about food for themselves and their families.
Let us help you enjoy your favorite foods while adhering to your specific diet. We treat customers with respect, dignity and confidentiality – and as if you are part of our very own family.
