Phase 1 Foods
Phase 1 is the foundation for your meal planning and kitchen
practice for years to come. Although the food list in Phase 1 may seem limited,

is a plain but nourishing breakfast. Breakfast can be leftovers from the
previous evening's dinner, warmed in the microwave. Why not have soup, salad, or
stew in the morning? The soup or stew pot simmering on the fire is a
centuries-old cooking tradition and has probably provided routine nutrition
since cooking was invented.
