The First 15 Foods You Should Stockpile For Disaster

Image source:

A good stockpile of food will go a long way toward helping you survive the aftermath of any disaster or life crisis, especially when grocery stores are emptied.

In fact, I’d go so far as to say that there are people who are not preppers who nevertheless instinctively know to stockpile food. This really isn’t surprising when you consider that through most of mankind’s history, stockpiling food was essential to survival — specifically surviving the winter months. During those months, wildlife is bedded down trying to stay warm and plants are dormant. If one didn’t have a good stockpile of food, their chances of survival were pretty darn slim.

But knowing to stockpile food and knowing what to stockpile are two different things. The vast majority of what the average American family eats is unsuitable for stockpiling, because it falls into one of three categories:

  • Junk food – Lots of carbs, lots of sugar, lots of salt and lots of chemicals, but not much nutrition.
  • Fresh food – Foods that won’t keep without refrigeration.
  • Frozen food – It will begin to spoil within two days of losing electrical power.

So we need to come up with other foods — foods that will give us a lot of nutrition and also have the ability to be stored for a prolonged period of time.

  • I also add protein powder. The kind athletes use. It stores practically forever and is a great source of protein in a crisis….

  • The above article is basically good information……HOWEVER…… should also MAKE SURE there is
    NO GMO’s in those products.

    Most Peanut Butter products are GMO
    Most Pasta contains GMO’s…or Glyphosate residue from the wheat it’s made from.
    Most of the Bouillon (cubed or powdered) contains MSG, a severe allergen. AVOID IT at all costs.
    I use the product “Better Than Bouillon”. It does NOT contain MSG.

    If you’re going to BOTHER prepping…….don’t gather and store products than will deteriorate your health
    AFTER you’ve survived the SHTF.

    Take care. Be careful out there.
