How to use the Worksheets:
- On the Breakfast Meal Plan worksheet write down the meals your family loves to eat.
- Using the formula in the column headers, figure out how many servings you will need for a 3-month period. (See page 10 for more details.)
- Transfer this information to your Shopping List, paying attention to the number of servings listed on any packages you buy. (See page 13 for more details.)
- Repeat this process for your lunch meal plan, unless like me you always have leftovers for lunch, so don’t need a lunch meal plan. (See page 18.)
- For your dinner meal plan, the formula is a bit different, since you will be determining how many times you will serve a meal, rather than the number of servings. Write down your family’s favorite dinners that you can make mostly from items in your pantry, supplemented with items from the freezer. (See page 24.) Transfer this information to your shopping list. (See page 26.)
- To learn how to adapt your favorite recipes to foods from your pantry (code for food storage), see chapter 8 on page 47.
- For desserts and treats, fill out your favorites and use the formula to determine how many times you want to serve this particular food in the next three months. Transfer this information to your shopping list. (See page 34.)
- For staples and condiments, which make up the basic items in your pantry, refer to page 40 for a helpful list. To figure out how much of a basic item you need to store for three months, mark the date you open it on the jar/bottle/package in black marker. Note the date when you have used it up. Then use the formula on the worksheet to know how much to store for any of the given periods.
- For tips on storing non-food items, refer to page 44. Use the same technique as in step 8 to determine how long an item lasts for your family. Then, use the formula on the worksheet to know how much to store for any of the given periods.
