Author: Mark J Walters
It is good practice to store some food at home in case of emergencies. Learn about some foods that are easy to store that will give you needed calories and nutrition.
At any point in time you can have a disaster or emergency that happens due to weather related events or other things that just happen. During these times it's best to have some supplies available to you. One of the things that many people prepare just in case of a disaster is to stock up on enough food provisions for themselves and their family.
You will need food that lasts longer than only a few days, is higher in calories, and also provides you with a good amount of quality nutritional value. There are some foods that you can buy that you will be able to easily store and that meet these needs.
Freeze dried foods work well. While these store long term and have the calories you need in them, they do also tend to be a bit expensive. These are good if you can afford them.
A great idea is to look at getting survival food bars. Many of these food bars tend to have more than 3000 calories in them which will last you at least one full day. Many backpacking supply places will have these or you could even buy then online on the Internet. They don't have the best taste but they will provide enough nutrition and calories to get you through the day.
Peanut butter is a great food to store. Not only can you use it on a regular basis for other things, but it's very high in protein. Beans are another high protein food that stores long term and gives you many needed calories. As long as you can boil some water these are very useful.
Get some canned goods for food storage purposes. You can get a variety of tastes and types of food easily in this form. Be sure to buy things you normally eat. Simply rotate your cans as you use them keeping a bit of a stock for emergencies.
Try to have some rice stored away. This goes well with beans. The brown variety tends to be a bit more nutritious that the white rice.
Don't forget to have proper seasoning for your food products. You will get bored of simplistic taste and will need something to give you something different.
