Food Shopping, Meal Planning, & Eating Out
This module offers insight into grocery shopping for family members of different ages and strategies to have healthy meals ready with limited time. The use of convenience foods in food preparation, preparing large portions at one time and storing for future use and time management cooking strategies are covered. The cost of these portion sized meals and how the Sailor population could save money by preparing and storing their own food at a fraction of the cost is also discussed. Some of the useful handouts include grocery shopping lists and quick recipes. If possible, you would also visit the commissary or local grocery store to get an in-depth experience of smart shopping, and learning what optimal foods to choose.
