A Sample One-week Meal Plan

Following is an example of what one woman did for her one-week plan that could then be expanded to be a simple one-month or three--month supply. She has decided not to use her freezer as part of her storage; I tend to think that for a three-month supply, it would be unlikely that we wouldn't have our freezers to use. You make the call for yourself. :)

Remember that we have been counseled not to go to extremes or go into debt, so as you make your plan, be sure to buy what you can afford; you can start by adding one or two extra things every time you shop until you eventually build up a surplus of all of your basics.

Monday: Whole wheat pancakes and syrup; cocoa
Tuesday: Cold cereal; cocoa
Wednesday: Oatmeal or cracked wheat (I like cracked wheat and the kids like oatmeal); cocoa
Thursday: Whole wheat pancakes and syrup; cocoa
Friday: Cold cereal; cocoa
Saturday: Oatmeal or cracked wheat; cocoa
Sunday: Muffins and juice
(She uses cocoa to be able to use powdered milk; I would add juices or something else for variety.)

Monday: Macaroni and cheese; raisins
Tuesday: Peanut butter and jam sandwiches
Wednesday: Tuna sandwiches
Thursday: Tomato soup; breadsticks
Friday: Sloppy joe calzones
Saturday: Tuna Helper (with broccoli added)
Sunday: Beef stew; biscuits and jam

Monday: Chili; cornbread and jam; peaches
Tuesday: Lasagna Hamburger Helper; green beans; applesauce
Wednesday: Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper; mandarin oranges; peas; and Jello
Thursday: Sheperd's Pie; pears
Friday: Chicken Helper; pineapple tidbits; cake
Saturday: Clam chowder; muffins
Sunday: Spaghetti; corn; fruit cocktail

I googled 3-month food supply and came up with your blog. I was excited to find it, but was wondering if you might be able to help me. I started a 3-month supply with meals for all three months of what we normally eat. I have since heard that they need to be things that have a longer shelf life or are ready to eat items. I don't know if that is accurate or not, but I am stumped about how to do that. This one week meal plan looks great, but my family has hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) and I can't figure out how to do something similar (without having to use the freezer) to still accomplish this. Sorry to do such a long post...I will check back for any ideas. Thanks!

If you have fallen prey to obesity and would like to trigger off weight loss as soon as possible, then you should opt for diet pills such as Phentermine and Adipex that are extremely popular for inducing rapid weight loss among people across the world. You will find the relevant details of weight loss pills at that inform you that Phentermine is to be taken only after procuring a Phentermine prescription and also in accordance with the instructions of the doctor. So, get hold of a Phentermine prescription, administer the drug properly and transform your weight loss dreams into reality.

I'm not trying to be offensive to the previous comment about diet pills. If you've fallen into obesity, then you should do a lifstyle evaluation. Yes, it would be tempting to have a quick fix, but honestly, how long does it last doing the quick fix. Changing your lifestyle- eating better, having a better sleeping pattern, and exercise routine will not only make you feel better, look better, and be healthier, but you will be keeping the word of wisdom and will received the wonderful and many blessings found in D&C 89.

Sorry Luccy, I have to agree with Melissa because it's people like you who cause anorexia. What happens when your sick of taking the pills(if they even work)and you still want to be slim? You stop eating? I think anyone who's an unhealthy eater should change they're lifestyle rather than take pills.
