My wife is a great shopper and stockpiler. She keeps a pantry full of canned stuff as well as boxes of rice a roni and the like. I raid the pantry every year or so to stock up our camper. This spring we sold the camper. Tina opened up a can of chicken noodle soup that was bad. When she checked the date it had expired 9 years earlier. I am sure it was my fault. Rotate your stock!

Beer and vitamin water. Fills you up, gives you carbs(beer) and nutrients/hydration(water), and gets better with time as opposed to worse.

A known phenomenon is loss of appetite when eating a food like "survival food." One must be very careful that the diet they choose to eat is fairly diverse, or else it is very easy to fall into anorexia

For example, someone who stores buckets of rice and beans are correct that their food would be nutritious enough for quite a few weeks, but the body will begin to lose its appetite when fed such a lifeless diet.

Don't forget to store treats like nuts, dried fruits, popcorn, anything that lasts for awhile. Then also eat what you are storing.

Would have thought the first thing to do is check out the plant life local to you that is edible.

This month I wil be putting up 6 5-gallon buckets of food. 2 buckets of enriched white rice and 1 each of enriched white flour, corn flour, dried beans, and rolled oats. Next month will be buckets of popcorn, brown rice, sugar, salt, and milk powder. We will be sealing the buckets with gamma lids after using dry ice and oxygen absorbers.

We've already been stockpiling and rotating honey, vegetable oil, baking soda, baking powder, peanut butter, soy milk, coffee, and canned meats.

My family has gotten pretty serious about this. I'm a Christian, but food prep is one thing the LDS church has right. Most of the food prep websites are Mormon.

My mom's fruitcake. Very filling and lasts for weeks, kinda heavy though.

Her bisquits could be handy as well; when stale, they are hard enough to break a window easily.

My pick is Soylent Green-- One nice thing about it is it is made from people, so there is lots of it around, just waiting to be harvested.
