7 day provisioning list

Has anyone got a good food provisioning list for 7 days serving 3 meals per day? Hopefully you have tried it and had good success with it or modified it.

How large of a crew? How big of a boat?

Re: 7 day provisioning list

Hardly exhaustive, but a stab at per 2 people / per day. People's provisioning lists vary quite dramatically.

- can of chicken
- 2 potatoes
- 4 eggs
- 3 cups quinoa
- 2 apples
- 2 pears
- 1 can of tuna fish
- 4 slices of bread
- 4 tablespoons of steel cut oats
- 1 red bull
- 1/2 quart milk (for coffee, drinking, etc)

stuff:
- rosemary
- cinamon
- olive oil
- popcorn (kernels, for popping)
- prunes (keep things greased)
- dark chocolate chips (keep in fridge, makes nice desert / snack)
- siracha sauce
- limes
- artificial sweetener juice mixes & a jug to mix it in that fits in the fridge

Re: 7 day provisioning list

might wanna consult with the crew to see what they like to eat also... some things can get very obscure.
what is purchased also depends on the region in which you are cruising.
do not forget to count on one gallon of water for each individual on board each day at sea for drinking. minimum.

Re: 7 day provisioning list

for some humor and if it were the old mid-19th century navy:

for two people for seven days:
10.5lbs preserved meat
1.75lbs butter
1.75lbs potatotoes (dried)
1 lbs dried vegetables
12 lbs biscuit
3.5 oz tea or 1 lbs coffee or cocoa
1.75 lbs sugar
1pint pickles
1pint molasses
1pint vinegar

to which could be added 1/2 gill spirits per day for those so inclined.

Re: 7 day provisioning list

All you really need is some tortillas, beans, eggs, salsa and beer and maybe a pie. Oh, and some cheese.

Re: 7 day provisioning list

7 days is really easy. What do you have available for cooking/food storage?

For our family, I'd go with looking at menus first and working off of that:

Breakfast: eggs x2, cereal x3, yogurt/granola x2 (add in some sort of muffin or danish and fresh fruit); coffee/tea/orange juice

Lunch: sandwiches and leftovers

Dinner: 5 grill meals, 2 inside meals - chicken breasts with BBQ sauce, steak, pork tenderloin, grilled shrimp, hot dogs and hamburgers

Then add in the sides with the dinners and lunches and then add in some snacks (always remember some sort of candy or chocolate and dessert) and you're set!

Re: 7 day provisioning list

One should be able to keep all the regular stuff for a week or so in the fridge and or cooler. What would the provisions look like for day 7 to 21?

Re: 7 day provisioning list

This might be a worthwhile read for you. Better than following some other person's list make your own.

Re: 7 day provisioning list

Thanks for mentioning my favorite book, Care and Feeding as being helpful. Unfortunately, the link you posted no longer works. Fortunately there is a brand new edition that came out two weeks ago. Here's the link https://www.paracay.com/nautical/ind...oduct_id=12290

Re: 7 day provisioning list

Another great book, albeit focused on backpacking provisioning plus a bunch of recipes, is The NOLS Cookery (NOLS Library - Cookery) which changes the provisioning process from specific planned meals to having all the required food staples in sufficient quantity for the number of people and the number of days. Having these staples in the right proportions changes the task of longer term provisioning from an incredibly daunting task to very manageable with the subsequent day to day meals being able to be more flexible and spontaneous. Obviously boat provisioning, even if it were canoe provisioning, is always going to be much more luxurious than backpacking provisioning from a weight basis but I use the NOLS recipes for everything from pizza to apple crisp with slight modifications regularly on my boat (slight modifications being heavy items a backpacker can't consider on longer hikes like using a jar of tomato sauce and fresh apples vs their dried alternatives). Bon appetit :-)

Re: 7 day provisioning list

Just divide the below by ten and you should be OK.
The following is a list of provisions printed by*Det Norske Udvandringsselskap*in Christiania (later Oslo) in the 1870s. These provisions were intended to be adequate for an adult for up to ten weeks:- 70 pounds hard bread (or the equivalent in soft bread or flatbread)- 8 pounds butter- 24 pounds meat- 10 pounds sidepork- 1 small keg of herring- 8/3 Td. potatoes- 20 pounds rye and barley flour- ½ bushel dried peas- ½ bushel pearl barley- 3 pounds coffee- 3 pounds sugar- 2½ pounds syrup- Quantities of salt, pepper, vinegar and onionsOf course, each passenger may take along the type of provisions desired as long as they are adequate for 10 weeks. [Pound = 454 grams, Td. = tønne = keg]
