Personally I think we all should have a few 72 hour emergency food supply kits as part of our preps. They are easy to make, easy to hide and store and easy to grab if you have to get out of your house in an emergency.
These are not long term food items. The website recommends you use them up after a year or so. The best way to do this is have a “emergency preparedness food day”. Have your family round up and consume the kits that are close to expiring.
Although if you have read the Busting the Canned Food Expiration Date MYTH article, you may be more inclined to wait about 2 years until considering using the kits up.
You can include what ever food you’d like in the kits, however the article below has a good selection of high calorie items that will keep you going for 3 days. If you liked this post, maybe you will like some of our others, you can check some related articles below or search via categories on the right, be warned, you will be on here for hours. Enjoy 🙂
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
