  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Should extended SHTF happen & your food supplies start running short. Are you prepared to portion ration what remains? Food for thought, anyway.

    This is something I did up today. My goal was to figure out the best way to get 2000 calories a day in basic food staples. This is meant as a means of survival not as a gourmet diet plan. However, if you were to add other things to it such as canned fruits and veggies, you are on your way. I...

    Recently Wise food company was running commercials during the natgeo Doomsday preppers episodes offering free samples of their products . I called and took them up on their offer and received 2 samples of their product Overall I liked the way both of them tasted and consider wise...

    This has been beat to death but oh well. I was researching what foods were best for energy, as my energy level is somewhat relaxed. According to what I read, salmon is the best meat for energy. Went to Walmart, and the Great Value brand was sold out. Somebody else knows this too. Went to Dollar...
  5. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    In planning next year's garden, I decided to investigate how many calories are in the fruits and veggies I grow. If it ever reaches the point where our garden becomes the family's main source of food, I'll want to have high calorie plants. If I start growing them now, I'll be able to get some...

    I have seen some misinformation in a few threads about calories needed, and I didn't want to derail those threads so I thought I would post here. Most people are prepping for about a 2,000 calorie a day diet- which is what you need if you're moderately active now, aka sitting at a desk with an...

    Just for fun :D: I did this quick just to see for myself about what it would take for one person a day for approximately 2000 calories for the most common items that I know many people will stock up on. I know that I won't be eating just ONE thing per day, and that things will be spread out...
  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm currently assembling a survival kit, and I need some food which takes up as little space as possible and has the most calories possible. It doesn't matter much if it doesn't taste well - what matters is its calorie density - something which would allow one to survive for a rather long time...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So I'm looking to buy some pre-made food for SHTF storage. What brands of food and mre's are the best for the price on the market right now? I was looking at the wise grab n go buckets. Mainly because of the easy storage. But im wondering if their is anything else that is on market at comparable...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So this is just my opinion to play the devils advocate, if nothing else. Feel free to argue otherwise :-) . Why waste money on an MRE? First of all, after eating like 6 billion MRE meals in the field and over seas I can say that they officially suck and you never get any damn jalapeno cheddar...

    I recently got 3 different types of breakfast cereal for 99c a box :thumb: 15 boxes of cereal later, I'd like to know the best way to keep them. I was wondering how long I can expect these to last if I mylar & O2 Ab them in 1 gallon bags? Anyone tried this? I will rotate, but I'd just like to...

    I would like to stock up on some food and then be done with it... It seems like freeze dried food allows you that option with a 25+ year shelf life on the #10 canned items. I am wondering who has the best quality out there. I have seen some called Mountain House.... Are they good?
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Has anyone tried to make cornbread out of items they easily store? Cornmeal, flour, powdered eggs, powdered milk? I usually use fresh buttermilk and fresh eggs and shortening. I need a alternate recipe.
  17. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    SB Community, I did a search on cornmeal and found some recipes, "what was your prep for today", etc. I'd like to know if anyone has personal experience with cornmeal as a prep? Obviously, I would use the mylar/O2 absorber routine, just wanted your thoughts.
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    There is obviously a lot of discussion about food storage on these boards. What I haven't seen is a lot of discussion regarding how a person would control their food supply in a SHTF situation. To me, being able to control your food supply seems just as important as what you store and how much...

    Has anyone tried to store ind. instant grits grandkids love them.I was thinking maybe sealing them up with my food sealer.Any ideals?? Thankful for any help with this:)
  20. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey Gents, wanted to get some opinions on Wise Foods' Grab and Go bucket. http://www.campingsurvival.com/wifo60seenon.html 25 year shelf life, affordable but needs water to reconstitute. Opinions? Would MRE's or just canned food be better? Thanks
