What do you think is the food item that gets wipe off the grocery store’s shelves in a SHTF situation? If you are thinking like everyone else, you will make a beeline straight for the canned food section.
The chance of a prepper joining the mad rush for food during a survival situation is very unlikely given the fact that he probably already prepared a food stockpile for a good three to six months.
But if for whatever reasons, you are left high and dry without any food stockpile, here are 3 food items that a prepper can still survive on after the canned food are all gone.
3 Food Items That A Prepper Can Still Survive On After The Canned Food Are All Gone
Don’t be like the rest of the people and join the mad rush for the futile attempt to get some canned food during a crisis.
Chances are you won’t find any left on the shelves in the grocery store.
Instead you should maximise your chances of survival by focusing on these 3 food items first.
1. Instead of bread, go straight for the flour.
Don’t worry if you can’t find any yeast. You can always make hardtack,tortillas or naan. You might also find that the sacks of dried rice and beans won’t disappear until after the canned foods go. When combined, these two make a complete protein and are perfect for emergency food meals. Keep cooking times in mind with the beans and go for small beans like navy or lentils
2. If you find that the produce section is stripped bare, go to the supplement aisle instead.
There you’ll find all of the vitamins and minerals that are normally found in fresh produce. Look for food based or whole food vitamins. You’ll also find protein powders that can at least partially substitute fresh meat. As well, look for seeds to sprout. Sprouts provide the highest amount of vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes of any of food per unit of calorie. Enzymes are essential because they heal the body, cleanse the body, prevent diseases, enhance the overall functioning of bodily organs, aids in digestion, and removes gas from the stomach.
3. If fresh meat or canned meat is gone from the shelves, a substitute for is dog food.
Though this may disgust most people, desperate times call for desperate measures. It’s really cheap and packed with protein. The only downside, of course, is that pet food usually doesn’t face the same health standards as human food. If it can be helped, go for the wet food instead of the kibble. Though you’ll probably be fine eating any dog food for a couple of weeks, dry dog food isn’t as safe as wet food. Plus, the cans of wet food will be much more hydrating.
