Below is an idea of what ingredients you may want to gather for your 3-month food storage breakfasts menus. Itâ€™s perfectly fine to have a mix of short-term and long-term food storage in your 3-month food storage supply. In fact, it will be cheaper if you do.
Itâ€™s okay if you donâ€™t eat what you see below every day. What’s most important is you store foods you DO eat now, or perhaps WILL eat if you had nothing else to eat.
My list assumes you include some of the items you can buy at an LDS Home Storage Center, but it’s only an example. Shop where you want. Buy what works for your family.

- cold cereal and fruit for 1 meal,

The Food Storage Organizer
- Ground almonds, walnuts, and pecans, ground flax meal and whole flax seed, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, raisins, dried cranberries, and dehydrated apple slices. I think we have about 2 to 3 months of the additions because they are not packed for long term storage and I’m not sure if they could be.
