I've written up a list of what we, as a 3-person family, need to store to make nutritious and tasty meals. Using the current food pyramid (see the graphic), I created the chart found at www.newviewgroupllc.com/Stored_Food3.html.
This list is not only to do my monthly shopping, but also to plan meals, and experiment with recipes.
Who could use this list and this blog?
- people concerned about the economy and stretching their food budget
- people who store food in case of emergency, layoffs, blizzards (us!), bird flu, etc.
- people who plant gardens and need help deciding what seeds to buy
- people who need a few fresh ideas about menu planning for their family
