Just a quick update as I’ve literally finished work, had to walk to the pharmacy in town before it closed, made dinner and did some chores and then sat down and wrote my meal plan for the 1st week of the “Living on WW2 Rations Experiment”.
Before anyone asks about protein, many of my stews will contain some lentils or high protein beans, I haven’t 100% decided exactly what is what but tomorrow night I will work this out and write my shopping list for rationed foods, points food and non-rationed foods. PS: You might find this snippet interesting below, it shows the average calories per person in the UK before, during and after during wartime/rationing plus the amount of protein people were consuming. People were pretty active then. I think they were doing OK without the protein shakes!
So here is my menu for the 1st week, I will be making smaller portions and also using leftovers up the next day. I’ve included 3 puddings a week and the rest of the time it will be a piece of fruit in bed at night!
What have you got planned? C xxx
