Here is a little update on the progress we have made on our food storage after about six months of working on prepping a little at a time.
When I am asked how preppers stockpile food for an economic collapse or other emergency, I am often surprised by the reaction that people have. So how does a typical prepper stockpile food for an economic collapse or other “SHTF” (Sewage Hits The Fan) scenario?
The thing about short-term food storage is that it includes all the items in your pantry that you eat every day. So Job One for a serious prepper is that each week they want to be cooking at least one meal from items in their long-term food storage, to ensure that when the time comes, they will be already acclimated to using them.
Stockpiling food this way is both very practical and very economical and can be done step by step instead of requiring a single, budget-busting purchase of survival foods from some online store. Examples can include the Just in Case Meals from Prepared.pro, the good ole military Meal Ready to Eat, Eversafe Meals, Sure-Pak MREs, Mainstay meals and everything in between.
This usually includes dried foods such as rice, beans, oats, salt, sugar and whatever else can be stored in a mylar bag. Care must be given not to store food products with animal by-products, such as dried milk or butter.
If you want to have survival food preps that will last 10+ years, freeze dried food in #10 cans is the way to go. If your long term survival plans go past a few month, you are going to have to raise your own food.
Pinto beans – One thing to take into consideration is pinto beans, which are high in protein. Long after the #10 cans and mylar bags are empty, there is only a couple of solutions for storing food.
Lets say that someone brings a wildhog or a deer into camp.  What happens to the meat that is not eaten?  Doe sit go to waste, are you planning on making salted pork, or storing it in a jar? With several cases of mason jars and a pressure cooker, its possible to store the extra food that is not eaten right away.

Hobbies include fishing, hiking, hunting, blogging, sharing his politically incorrect opinion, video blogging on youtube, survivalism and spending time with his family. They naturally assume that I have a bunch of pallets of Army MRE’s or freeze-dried survival meals in the garage. But I live in the real world and as a Prepper Consultant I have to advise people who don’t have unlimited resources. More likely, it is food that is in Number 10 cans that you can get from a LDS (Latter Day Saints, or “Mormon) church cannery. Preppers are also thinking about being stranded in their cars away from their supplies and are thinking about what they will do if the power grid goes down. When stored in hot locations, such as an outdoor shed, or in the trunk of a car in a get home bag, years can be shaved off the life expectancy. One of the best ways to store food after SHTF, is by saving the food from your garden and then storing that food in mason jars. These foods are staples like wheat, flour, potato flakes and oats that will last in their cans for 10-20 years, so rotating them is not a major consideration.
When storing food items such as mashed potatoes, read the labels, and exclude any product that list animal fats. The second time I tried storing foo din mylar bags, I made some superpails, and I do not think the project turned out very well.
Dehydrated has anywhere from a 5 – 10 year shelf life when stored in ideal conditions. If you want food that will last 20 – 25 years, then you are going to have to pay the price.
Even if the harvested seeds are viable, the harvested seeds of the second generation may or may not be viable.

He works for a trucking company, because it is too expensive for him to work for himself.And this is where I got interested.
He said that he has been a truck driver since 1999, and up until 2004, when he would pull into truck stops, if he got in too late all of the spaces for overnight parking were full.
Which if you think about it is a little frightening.In any grocery store, there is about three days’ worth of food (more or less) stocked and ready to sell. By adding an extra $20 a week to your shopping trip in as little as 3 months you will have accumulated a nice pantry full of food. If done smart, that could be a six month food supply for your family.You have to look at it like an insurance policy, you pay that bill every month right? Food Storage and Prepping isn’t just preparing for an economic collapse or a banking crisis,  having a well-stocked pantry could help see your family through leaner times like loss of  income or a  job. If you make a list of the items your family likes to eat, you will know what to look for while you are doing your normal shopping.Inventory Your StorageKeeping your food collection areas organized and accessible will help you know what you have, and how much you have. It is a good time now to start planning different recipes to try with food that store well, such as SPAM, or canned chicken. Find what your family likes, train them to expect it and focus on that.Different Food StorageThere is more to food storage than just canned goods. These can be nice alternatives to always preparing from a can, and they can be found cheap! The definition of a prepper is "An individual or group that prepares or makes preparations in advance of, or prior to, any change in normal circumstances, without substantial resources from outside sources" Like the Government, police etc.
I don't believe that the end of the world will be the "end of the world" I believe it will be the end of the world as we know it now. You can also find me on Google Plus and TwitterLeave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
