So I'm preparing some foods for a disaster/emergency situation and wondered what are some good choices.
So far I've got:
Add to this list!
I don't want to be going hungry if there's an earthquake or a meteorite strike or something.
Coconut milk and ghee.
Chia seeds. Mine from Nutiva have a 2 year shelf life.
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 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??
get a pressure cooker, you can can anything
