What about food?

See also

Okay, so yesterday we talked about water http://ow.ly/teKCx , but what about food? Various agencies such as the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), Ready.gov, The Homeland Security and Emergency Management Agency (HSEMA) http://hsema.dc.gov, and even shows like Doomsday Preppers make suggestions for storing food. So what type of food would you store?

Well first, I would start with the ready to eat canned foods, not forgetting a manual can opener. Then stock up on the canned juices, boxed milk, protein shakes, and soup. Next, I would focus on the high energy foods such as peanut butter crackers, granola bars, trail mix, dried fruits, nuts, and candy. To avoid health deficiencies, storing vitamins and herbs would be a good idea. This is not bad for foods that do not require heat. But what if you want a warm meal?

Well, first you will need a can of sterno cooking fuel, a small propane camping stove, or a portable solar cooker. And do not forget the matches (store in a plastic bag to eliminate a chance of your matches getting wet). Yes, cooking food may take longer than normal, but there is nothing like a warm meal. Use seasonings such as salt, pepper, honey, etc. for taste and flavor. Some ‘going green’ gadgets can be found through www.pinterest.com/a4gllc .

For long term food storage, consider rotating food every six (6) months. But if you want to take it to the next level of food storage, you can always order from www.wisefoodstorage.com for your extremely long term food storage needs.
