Food production is down in this nation. Prices are going to suffer because of that. There is no way we can avoid this. We watched farmers suffer so much through the terrifying floods of the midwest this year.
The time to store food has never been more important. Food storage is a level of safety and security that offers you so much.
While many people believe that the power of preppers comes from tricked out AR-15s, it comes from you ability to stay safe in your home and keep the calamity at a distance. Most disaster dont come to your front door, not even to your community, in a violent and threatening manner.
Having freeze-dried meals is very convenient. These meals give you options when your options are limited. If you lose all the food in your freezer because of a long term power outage, you can still get some protein from meals like these.
They are easy to store and relatively tasty depending on what you are going after. Many of the top brands do a really good job and making something palatable. They are also very starch and filling in nature.
These are emergency meals. They are not homemade meals. That is very important for you to understand. There are also disparities between the calories, servings, and quantities of food in each bag.
Brands are doing things differently and some offer more food than others, per serving. You need to do your research on that.
The biggest downfall of all is that these meals need to be cooked over a flame for as much as 20 minutes some times. That’s a long time and a lot of fuel if you dont have a traditional stove.
We dont often concern ourselves with things like fuel consumption because in AMerica its a bottomless pit. However, when you are cooking over fire, the cost of wood becomes a heavy burden.
If you really wanna grab the food storage game by the horns, you should start with large quantities of food that can be stored in bulk. Bulk stored staples like rice, beans, corn, oil, salt, sugar, and flour will get you further than most things.
