Annnnnddd tomorrow it begins! The “Living on WW2 Rations Experiment” where some of us will be experiencing life living on the MINIMUM UK WW2 rations for a month (or a day, or a week, whatever you fancy!) Rationing amounts often changed but choosing the minimum amount available to people during some months, really will offer an insight into the difficulties families faced making limited food supplies stretch. We can never of course, get anywhere close to what families had to endure but feel it’s important to try and never forget…
My video above is a simple introduction into my own personal WW2 Rations Experiment month but I do hope to recreate several popular recipes throughout the month for my blog and YouTube.
If you are late to this please feel free to join in or be an observer, whether you want to follow the UK minimum standard ration or one from your own geographical location, it’s all good, it’s all LIVING HISTORY.
And during these times of uncertainty and rising food and fuel costs, learning how to make do with less will not only help our beautiful planet by preserving resources but will help our money stretch further.
Please check my other recent posts where you will find free downloadable PDF’s to help you join in with this experiment. Remember to keep a diary and share your menu’s and your experiences. Would love to hear them!
Good luck everyone!
