This grocery list was MUCH easier to create than Phase 1's. It still took time, of course, but it was not nearly as frustrating as creating the grocery list for phase 1. I was even able to fit the grocery items and the recipes all onto one page. (Yay!)
A few tricks for understanding the shopping list (if you're already familiar with this from the Phase 1 Grocery List, you can skip this part):
1. I color coded the items based on whether they are for breakfast only, snack only, lunch only, dinner only, or a general item. That way, if you don't want to make any of the lunch items, for example, you can easily take out the green-colored items you don't need.
2. If the ingredient is for a specific recipe, I included a shortened version of the recipe name in parenthesis at the end of the ingredient. Once again, if you don't want to make that recipe, you don't need to buy these items. If the ingredient's text color is black, it is used for more than just breakfast or lunch, etc.
3. If an item is italicized, that means it is an ingredient for a recipe that makes more than one serving. So the quantity is flexible depending on how many servings you really want to make. I did not include the recipes that make more than four servings, so I recommend that you consult the list in the book and see which of these recipes you want to make and then add the quantities you want. There were not NEARLY as many of these items for Phase 2 as there were for Phase 1. (Once again, yay!)
4. I also included a list with the names of the recipes for Phase 2. These are also color-coded; show the page number the recipe is on; states how many servings they make if they make more than one; and, if I did not include the ingredients on the grocery list, that is stated as well.
I created the grocery list in Microsoft Word 2007, that way it is easy to edit. (However, as I found out with Phase 1's grocery list, I can't upload that type of document here. If you would like the Word version of this file, leave a comment with a way I can get it to you.) Also, it is a grocery list for ONE PERSON for ONE WEEK using the "Meal Plan Approach" for Level I.
