Fall is here, Conference has started and we have a new month of goals to accomplish. If you have been procrastinating all year, today is the day to start. This month we are storing LEGUMES. Beans, peas, and lentils all fall into this category and you will need to store 60lbs per person per year. Many legumes can be purchased at the LDS cannery.
Black beans 25lbs $14.50
Pinto beans 25lbs $16.30
White beans 25lbs $14.10
Beans eaten with grains or nuts will make a complete protein. In a situation where you don't have meat or eggs you can still have a complete protein with beans and grains.
I found a great site that has sorted out all the different kinds of legumes and has great pictures and definitions. Click HERE to read this great information.
Our other goal for October is to store cold weather clothing, shoes and bedding. Could you live for a year without buying winter coats, boots, hats, mittens, etc? If you have children you need to have a year's worth of clothing stored. In the event of an evacuation or an emergency and you were in a car or tent over night in the middle of winter, would you be prepared with blankets and sleeping bags?
Don't hesitate! Prepare today!!
