    A list of primal foods that have a long shelf life at RT

    Primal Fuel
    So I'm preparing some foods for a disaster/emergency situation and wondered what are some good choices.

    So far I've got:

    Tinned fish
    Coconut oil
    Butter
    Chocolate


    Add to this list!

    I don't want to be going hungry if there's an earthquake or a meteorite strike or something.

    I have artichokes and fire-roasted red peppers in glass jars and tomatoes, olives and green beans in cans.
    I have honey and dried coconut, too.

    We strongly believe in having a 3 month supply of emergency food and water. Like you said- you never know when the next blizzard/ice storm/hurricane/tornado/flood/solar flare/ etc will happen. My husband lost his job last year, and while he was unemployed for 4 months, we ate a lot of our food storage so we wouldn't have to use money on groceries. We've been spending this last year getting it built back up.

    We have a lot of dried fruits/veggies stored in case of an emergency. We have LOTS of cans of veggies- peas, green beans, spinach, turnip greens, carrots, olives, etc. We also have powdered milk, sardines, tuna, anchovies, canned chicken, and even a few cans of spam. We also have a few #10 cans of powdered eggs. Admittedly, we have a few non-primal foods in food storage (red wheat, oats, corn meal, rice). I figure in an emergency- we'll have to eat- even if it's not primal. Definitely don't forget to store plenty of water!

    Canned squash and canned sweet potato might also be useful.

    I'll have to look out for the canned squash and SP. I was actually wondering this morning, as I might be going camping later on, what are some good carby foods that don't require much preparation.

    I'll be burning a lot of calories and think it'll be a good idea to up the carbs when I'm out.

    Rice and SP would be ideal but foods that don't need cooking would be better. Any ideas??
