Food Storage Made Easy was founded on the principals of building up a year supply of food storage in simple babysteps. There are three components to the program: Checklists, Encyclopedia, and a Recipe Appendix. BABYSTEP CHECKLISTS: The Food Storage Made Easy Program starts with a series of checklists designed to be completed every two weeks, but you can go fast or slower as desired. Each checklist gives specific food storage or preparedness items to buy, to learn about, and to try. FOOD STORAGE ENCYCLOPEDIA The encyclopedia contains detailed information about every aspect of your food storage and emergency preparedness plans which we discuss in the checklists. If you are assigned to buy an item, you can be sure that there is an article about it in the encyclopedia. We want to make sure you have all of the information you need so that you understand what you are storing and how to use it instead of just buying a bunch of foods you can't cook. We help you know the different varieties of foods so you can choose ones that your family will enjoy and that meet the nutritional guidelines you are looking for. RECIPE APPENDIX With 60 recipes plus food storage equivalents and substitutions charts this recipe appendix is a complete resource on it's own. For every food we instruct you to buy we give you at least one recipe you can use so you don't have to feel nervous about storing new foods you've never used before. These are family-friendly, simple recipes that should work well for anyone!
