Thinking About Your Survival Food List

Author : Franklin Holloway

Here's how we get started in stockpiling of food beforehand. We will benefit from a one-step-at-a-time plan, made by those, who have the most experience in stockpiling food. I cannot in this article share the whole plan, so I'll give you the nitty gritty here first.

We find in common use today 2 different kinds of survival food list, one for your long term stash, and another having foods that are ready to be eaten, for instance, if you might be overwhelmed in dealing with immediate damages. Little serving-sized packages of foods ready to be eaten will be most suitable for your short-term stockpile.

Be sure, that your stash has a lot of different varieties of chow. Dried and preserved snack-foods, of the ilk of cheese curls, popcorn, and potato chips, will certainly keep a long while, but they will not energize us, nor fill us with pep and vim.

Fruits and vegetables contain more minerals and vitamins, than are meats, and dairy-produce. Get your protein from dairy, meat, nuts, and beans. The perfect balance of proteins comes from a bond of whole grains and beans, daily. Omega fatty acids are important, and we get them from raw walnuts.

Cooking destroys certain vitamins. Because of the loss of vitamins from cooking, you will need fresh vegetable material, especially green food. Some, that are easy to be found, are chicory, leaves of alfalfa, field cress, clover leaves, and dandelion greens..

It might be necessary for you to eat some fresh foods, if you want to strengthen your resistance to stress and disease, by sufficient vitamin C..

Spruce and pine needles will yield vitamin C to water that is either cool, or air temperature, cut up with scissors or knife. It makes a tasty drink. We should find out the differences between pine and spruce and other trees.

Red meat is nearly the only food that supplies us with much vitamin B12. Swiss cheese has some vitamin B12. Both brewer's yeast and nutritional yeast are good sources of all of the B vitamins.

A good survival food list must have more variety than just food bars. We ought to include jerky, crackers, canned vegetables, canned beans, and nuts.

If a date is missing from your food container, write one yourself, with pernanent ink. Use the date when you obtained the food. As the food gets near the use date, or 1-3 years from when you bought it, eithe eat it, or give it away, and get newer food.

With what we just learned, our survival food list will be better than others. Your next step is to learn, and to follow, the step-by-step plan.
