In this book you will learn how to start a prepared pantry from absolutely nothing. There is a step by step process that is definitely doable and logical. Daisy’s personal story is commendable and shows that you don’t have to be rolling in money to build a nutritional and bountiful pantry. On a budget of practically nothing you can accomplish what you might feel would be impossible. Daisy’s story is proof, you can do it too.
There are tips to follow beginning with virtually nothing and progressing to a more secure life knowing your family is eating well. You will learn how to shop, how to save money, and how to meal plan while you are achieving your desired pantry of plenty.
She also gives step-by-step instructions so even if you have never preserved or stored foods you will feel confident in starting your stockpile of healthy foods. In addition to all the information and resources, you will have tried and true recipes to use. This is not a recipe book but it contains just the right amount of recipes to get you prepared to cook great meals at VERY affordable prices.
I HIGHLY recommend this book to both novice and seasoned meal gurus.
What a great book! Wonderful back story on the importance of being ready for that unexpected occurrence in your life that would normally wipe out an unprepared family and force you on the dependency rolls. No thanks! I am too proud for that so I will be ready.
After all the education up front about calories per person, types of food and how they are stored, etc, Daisy takes you step by step through using your existing budget to create your food storage.
This is not a canning book! She is teaching you how much and how to collect food for storage.
Some things, you may already know...being the non-wasteful readers that you probably already are. But, being able to catch the sale cycles was something I did not know. I have never been a couponer, but there are plenty of handy tips on how to get the most bang for your buck for food items.
Also, since she is very concerned (as am I) about BIG CORPORATION's processed foods and the non-nutrition they contain, she explains the ins and outs of organic. Super!
I highly recommend this book.(and also her website and FB page!)
Easy to read, it really helps you organize your thoughts/pantry so you can then make intelligent purchases. The pointers are right on, especially about what to stock and how to use space wisely. NOT like the other guide lines, she recommends looking at what you eat and instead of stocking up on a ton of rice and beans...which unless you eat them regularly could be a digestive disaster. Most of all, I love her attitude, upbeat, positive extolling the virtues of being prepared !
-No fear mongering
Upbeat, honest and straightforward, this book is a wonderful read for wherever you are on your preparedness journey. I wish I'd had this when I was first married and having kids but I'm so glad I have it now. We've just moved and are struggling with work, new bills and a new area and have been living on our food storage so Daisy's voice has been really comforting and instructive as I read through this book. As she says, "Preparedness is the ultimate form of optimism".
