2013 Plan to Build an Allergy-Friendly Food Supply

February 20, 2013

Our Food StorageLast year, I wrote a post on building a year’s supply of allergy-friendly food in $10/week. This is an important topic to me because I always want to be prepared for what happens, whether that be a natural disaster or the loss of a job. One of the ways our church teaches us to be prepared is through having food storage, and this is especially important for a family where there are food allergies, because when aid comes, they may not have food that is safe to eat. This post included a weekly plan of how I was going to build our food storage for the year. Here’s what I learned through implementing it:

I’m better at getting a surplus in some things than others. Beans I never seem to restock on by the time it came to buy $10 worth again, so I didn’t seem to get ahead there. Applesauce, I’ve been good at keeping a minimum number of bottles in my garage though, and my supply of sugar and rice has been growing steadily.

It’s so much easier to remember to buy these foods during my normal grocery trip rather than having to order it online. Even though buying online gets me access to different foods and could be cheaper or better for storage.

With that in mind, I’ve created a new list for the year to help me continue to build our food storage, so that we can be ready whatever comes our way. There are no amounts on these items, I’m just going to buy whatever $10 can get me. Feel free to use/adapt this list however you wish.
