The Prepared Pantry Masterclass


Prepare Your Pantry

Self-reliance is always in vogue, and now is the time to start.

Do you have enough? Are you worried that you don’t? 

Whether you are a survivalist with emergency MREs stockpiled in your basement or if the empty shelves on your last trip to the grocery store had you wondering if you should check out the LDS recommendations for food storage, you may be wondering how to prepare for unexpected events like the one we are experiencing now. 

This is not a time to be afraid. It is time to prepare for change and uncertainty. 

And it’s not too late!

I have created a masterclass intensive, The Prepared Pantry, for times like these. 

As a nutrition educator, recipe creator, author of The Pantry Principle, and a mom, I have a deep knowledge of food ingredients that nourish and how to turn them into delicious meals. And now I want to teach you how to have nourishing meals and other supplies on hand to provide for your family no matter what comes your way. 

The Prepared Pantry will draw on my years of experience in disaster planning and preparing for blizzards, hurricanes, floods, and other events. I have kept a Prepared Pantry for nearly two decades. I have maintained a supply of “just-in-case” water and food in my home without needing any special accommodations like a basement or an empty closet. I have developed a system to rotate that food and water while feeding my family, maintaining a sensible food budget, and keeping fresh commodities on hand at all times. 

I have learned what works by learning what doesn’t work. Let me share my “In Real Life” practical experience with you, so you don’t have to learn it on your own in an emergency. 

The Prepared Pantry Online Masterclass Intensive

Here’s what you will learn in four classes over two weeks:

Week One:

Class 1 – Get Prepared. Learn the Basics – how to have what you need when you need it without waste

Class 2 – Food Storage and Planning – Only buy food your family will eat. Learn how much to buy, when to buy it, when to use it, and how to keep it.

Week Two:

Class 3 – Use What You Have – Maximize your budget and stretch your meals. Learn how to manage your food and leftovers to stay nourished and avoid boredom.

Class 4 – Bonus Tips Plus a Q&A to answer your specific needs.

Learn how to buy foods your family will eat, not those you think you should have “just in case.” (I’m looking at you, big bag of dried beans!) Learn how to prepare those beans… or rice… or canned meat… on a regular basis and rotate them through your daily meal plans. 

You don’t have to invest your limited grocery budget in hoarded food to sock away in anticipation of Doomsday!

Speaking of Doomsday, this class is not meant to prepare you for an apocalypse. I don’t believe in anticipating scary scenarios. It will prepare you for the proverbial rainy day—which may be right around the corner.

I believe in teaching common-sense solutions that will give you confidence and peace of mind in daily choices and disaster preparation. 

Classes will be presented twice a week for two weeks. If you can’t make one of the live classes you’ll have access to the replay. And you will be able to listen to the class as often as you like.

With things changing on a day-by-day basis, I want to share this information with you immediately. That’s why I’m offering the class …. starting ….

There’s no time like now to get the knowledge you need to know to support your family. I want to help you move through this current crisis calmly and without unnecessary worry. I want you to be prepared.

And if you never need this information for an emergency, hooray! You will have learned to stock and manage a pantry economically, with minimal waste and utmost meal pleasure. 

Be well,



P.S. You can’t put a price on being prepared. Please sign up today, so you may be assured you are ready for that rainy day.

Why You Want to Take This Class From Me

I am a certified nutrition educator in private practice who utilizes an integrative approach to nutrition with a holistic focus. I teach people how to feed their bodies through a healthy lifestyle, whole foods, and occasional nutritional supplements if needed. I frequently contribute to social media. I blog at

I am a member of the National Association of Nutrition Professionals, the Society of Nutrition Education, the American Holistic Health Association, and the Weston A. Price Foundation. I speak frequently to laypeople and nutrition professionals on how to navigate the grocery store’s mammoth packaged food stock, to decipher those confusing food labels, and to choose healthy convenience foods.

My book, The Pantry Principle, is an essential food primer offering readers a path to upgrading their food choices one step at a time. It first presents seven simple rules for evaluating ingredients on food labels, such as “If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it.” The book explains the hazards of various food ingredients, shares guidelines to evaluate food already purchased, suggests ways to wisely allocate a grocery budget, presents cooking techniques, and offers more than two dozen delicious recipes specially created for the book, from condiments to cookies, all made with “real food” ingredients. 

Class fees for The Prepared Pantry are set up on a ‘pay what you can’ scale – pay $27, $47 or $77 for four classes over two weeks. You will be able to listen to the recordings as many times as you like.
