No Power Meal Plan

The No Power Meal Plan is for anyone who has no access to any power to cook, heat water or refrigerate. I am assuming that there is no power to the house at all, so not even a kettle.
It shows 3 meals a day, plus some biscuity extras to fill any gaps, for 7 days, for 2 adults. Change the meals around to suit yourself, combine the shopping list of ingredients in any other way that suits you, add extra ingredients that you may have, just use one of the recipes, leave out anything you don’t like or need or change anything else that you see fit.

This was, by far, the hardest meal plan I’ve done. I kept wanting to add something warming and comforting.

You and the 2nd person you are feeding may not need all the calories a day. Only you know what you need, I will leave this part of it to you to adjust.
If you do use anything from here, I would love it if you let me know how you get on.

You will need to be accurate with your measuring with some ingredients, and can be more free-handed with others.
