    I'm pretty sure there's a ridiculous amount of grains/legumes in our emergency storage. I can't bring myself to toss it though--I'm thinking if things ever get bad enough to need it, it's better than being hungry, and maybe I can go the WAPF route and soak/sprout/ferment/something...

    After considering this since I started the post, I think I'm going to start phasing out my emergency stores and replacing them with more primal stuff. I can swap out beans and canned foods with sardines, canned salmon, etc; I'll just buy a little extra every time I go shopping and rotate through it as it nears expiration. I should be able to start donating all the bad stuff as I get more primal food stockpiled. Probably keep some rice, though.

    I'm really big on having a few weeks' worth of supplies (or more) just in case there's ever some huge catastrophe that disrupts supplies. Also...zombies.

    I ditched most of mine, gave it to friends and the really grim stuff went in the bin (vintage bulk bought soy sauce? No thanks)

    I've got a box of lasagne sheets I thought I'd keep if I was desperate to make a traditional lasagne. Mood hasn't struck me yet. I've got a little flour and some questionable condiments in the fridge and pita bread in the freezer. Not enough to make a difference to me, and nothing tempting.

    For a number of months I kept the remaining portion of my BF's last hurrah pasta dish before I cocerced him to go primal. A few weeks ago I showed him it and offered it to him for dinner. He made a disgusted face and threw it in the bin. Result!

    I have kids, one is super picky, aka there are Wheat Thins in my cupboard. I never bought canned soup, always from scratch, but I do have beans and spaghetti sauce and pasta. And I bake and poison others alllll the time. I find pleasure in the process, I can give it away and not miss a bite.

    For the zombie apocalypse, I'd just as soon have things like canned tuna and coconut milk ... it might be harder to outrun zombies while feeling lethargic from eating pasta

    What do you plan on doing with the rice if the power is out? ie: how would you cook it if there is no power, a fire?? Is this the kind of emergency people are talking about (zombies aside)?

    Fire or camping stove, if it got to the point where I needed to cook rice. I camp a LOT, so I have the food prep using minimal resources thing down.

    Try Freecycle and/or CraigsList - there's someone hungry out there.
