BFT Week 1 and 2 Suggested Meal Plan Shopping List

  • The Shopping List below is based on all the foods contained in the suggested weeks plan for week only. This means you will do this again for week 2. This will give you a second opportunity to practice your cooking your recipes and help prevent food wastage.
  • If you buy all food for the two weeks some foods such as meat, seafood and poultry may need to be frozen.
  • Feel free to omit recipes you dislike or follow instructions to substitute food groups in a recipe for preference of cost, availability or ethical/health beliefs. You can also choose to double up on recipes if you don’t mind eating the same thing the next day.
  • Use the Shopping list below and the recipes you plan to cook up over the next 7 days and make a list on the amounts you need to buy considering:
  1. Your portion sizes
  2. The foods your already have
  3. Any food group substitutes you have chosen in recipes (e.g. a different meat/protein or grain)
  4. What foods you may have to freeze or return to the shops later.
