TVP and meat/poultry/fish are the key sources of protein. 1/4 of our TVP/Meats are the real thing. Beans also provide a little. TVP and beans are pretty perfectlly balanced nutrition. Try 20 lb. bags of converted (parboiled) rice as a staple in addition to the beans. Throw in some pasta for variety (of non-meat, non-fat, calories try 50% in dried beans, 33% in rice, 17% in pasta). These will ALL last a decade or two if sealed well enough and stored properly.

And when the local chain drugstore has a sale on vitamins, buy lotsa multivitamin/mineral tablets -- you'll want at least one a day, two under worse conditions. Get cheap Vitamin C wafers and take that too in cold and flu season.

Just out of curiosity, I assume you have no well? If you do, getting a way to pump that water out of the well should erase your needing to stock water........problems could be; long-term energy supply for running pump, and possible EMP event ruining pump, generator, or other electronics.

I was thinking about learning to can foods but it seems expensive. 100$ or more for a pressure cooker. Is there a way to store meats long term(2 years or more) without them going bad?

We have BOB's and are considering the worst case scenario of having to leave the house and having no car. We're trying to prepare that way as well.

Beast Try this.... a dry run living off your preps .

1-- Talk to the wife/gf/kids about this first

2-- Do it over the weekend at first 2 days.. ie... go camping and live from a cold camp

3-- make adjustments from this outing on what you need to prep

4-- next try from your house & job.... adjusting as you go...ie... calorie intake needed

You don't need a pressure cooker. look into pickling, you can pickle nearly anything, thousands of recipes on the net, very inexpensive.

Wait so here's what I found, basically I boil a jar and lid, put in some vegetables, then fill it with vinegar or salt water and screw the lid on?
