2023 Preparedness Food Storage - Week 4: Protein
This week is protein. Now, protein is many things but for our purposes, we are talking meat, fish, nuts, and beans. This week store 5 pounds of protein per family member in the form of meat or fish. If you are storing beans as your protein you will need 2 cans to replace 1 pound of meat. You will need 3 cups of nuts to replace one pound of meat. These replacements are not based on serving size but rather on protein equivalents. I recommend you store a variety of protein sources. We will be adding more protein later so decide what your protein goals are and this week shop the sales to begin your protein storage.
