You will see that beans and corn give you a complete protein.

I am 90 percent red mewt carnivore and 10 pwercent v eggie.

But in an emergency, I'd helluva lot rather "veg out" than starve.

Has anyone ever shot a "Red Mewt?" I'd be interested in what load to use...

A few page back there was the observation that many residents of third world countries have survived on grain diets for centuries. True. they have merely survived. They have not thrived.

I have been on a gluten-free diet for a couple of months. It is healthier (according to many nutrition experts) and I think it is doing my body good. I still eat plenty of meat and lots of vegetables. Just nothing containing gluten. Beans and rice are OK though. Eventually I figure it will be good to go Paleo. That is a sustainable diet in a SHTF world, or even the EOTWAWKI as long as you have a means to hunt with. Guns and ammo is always a great idea. Lots of reloading components. These I would add to the 100.

True. but since I cannot imagine ant scenario where3 order and supply would not be restored in 3-4 weeks absolute maximum, the beans-rice-corn is a very viable survival diet. Especially if supplemented with vitamin supplements, jerky, and dried veggies.

Agreed. Beans and rice are a good idea to have on hand, but not for a long term diet without some meat protein. .

3 to 4 weeks for a large-scale recovery has been the history here in this country but how long did it take in Sarajevo? Here in California after the earthquake in 1989 it took 3 weeks for them just to restore power where I live (I am less than 10 miles from the 1989 epicenter) but we weren't to the point where we would have been subsisting on beans and rice by any means.

Yes, and apparently they all end up in Chinese Take-Out places.

Locutus, giving you complete proteins is NOT the same thing as giving you all the protein you need in a complete diet.

Did you not understand this or think anyone, everyone, else here wouldn't?

Yes, I completely understand that. And I understand that would be bad for an athlete in training.

But you don't seem to understand that a reasonably healthy human body can survive for several months or more on a bare bones diet. You'll lose weight. And possibly strength. But you won't starve.

Hell, read up on the Hanoi Hilton and the Bataan death march. Or read the story of the mountain man, Hugh Glass. Or Mexican farm workers in the interior of Mexico.
