Epic Recommendations! Love this episode
Thanks alot yall.
Cheers for this, been searching for “37 survival food items” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried – Banevi Uncomplex Booster – (search on google )?
*What Survival Food Do You feel Are a Staple for your Prepper Pantry?!*
@Barry Soetorro buy local 🍯 it’s better for allergies as well.
@Gramma Kiki Ty. I heard that as well. Something to do with getting one’s body accustomed to local pollen.
Handle of vodka, rum, and whiskey.
You mentioned putting rice in it to declump it, but you left ‘it’ off your list! 😜
Salt, a great forever food.
Chocolate! You’d be amazed what a candy bar or two would do for someone when you can’t just go buy it anymore.
Be careful where you buy your honey. New testing in 2019 tested 70 brands and found more than half of them were diluted with corn or rice syrup sometimes by 2/3. I get mine direct from a neighbor beekeeper.
Good call! I will be looking for something local – If I had the land, I would make my own. But neighbor it is.
YES!! The honey you buy in regular grocery stores or SuperCenters is JUNK. ALL the nutrients are gone in commercial honey. Buy only raw, local honey. You’re spending a little bit more, but you’re not buying junk and the taste (as well as medicinal properties) is awesome.
Also, you can buy Manuka honey, which is the creme de la creme of honey. It’s not cheap but it IS excellent!
Kimmi McKnight Thank you so much for that information. I wasn’t aware of that. I will definitely make the change.
yes sir everything’s better when you’re in Texas
I’d like to add that things like Beef/Chicken Bouillon or Furikake Rice Seasoning has made a world of difference in making rice more flavorful for us. Watching from Oregon.
Lump that in with the Herbs and Spices section for sure! Awesome!
Watching 10 minutes away from Portland in Vancouver, Washington
I like to use sazon (sp?) It’s usually in the Hispanic aisle & is a good price.
I had all of the items that I eat on this list. I would add nuts too.
Gotta be careful with the fats in them going rancid depending on storage, but yeah I agree
Well done Shauna. I hear you!
Electrolyte powder. For when people are sick or dehydration is a factor.
A bit of the cider vinegar in water will help with dehydration due to illness or heat. Bonus if you use molasses or lemon.
Coconut water also provides natural source electrolytes.
Epsom salt, baking soda and potassium powder…make your own.
The Weird Looking Cat so what
“Salt light” from your local grocery,
50/50 salt an potassium
Dude quit telling people our secrets, I can’t even find half this stuff in my grocery store now. Keep pushing the toilet paper 😈
don’t worry about toilet paper, keep your old clothes, they can be cut up into rags and washed and reused, won’t be convenient but it will work
@DropForgedSurvival I’m a beginner prepper, I need all the selfless advice I can get. On behalf of all of us newbies, thank you!
Damn some people can’t even take a joke. But does anyone ever notice that the news always talks about the shortage of toilet paper. It’s so they won’t make a run on canned foods and other things. Grab some reality.
in brasil we eat rice and beans every day, i dont know why but we like
… with a side of fried platano (big bananas); love the masa harina too.
Could you share a couple of your fave simple rice and beans recipes that you’d use in an emergency/survival type situation?
Because it’s wonderful, especially rice seasoned with garlic, a bit of onion, olive oil, and the beans with a bit of pork or bacon crumble, garlic, bay leaf, onion, salt (and don’t forget the farofa — but it takes a bit more planning).
Everyday! It never gets boring. Different beans. A bit of different meat to add. It goes with everything.
In Puerto Rico too!
“Brasil”? You live in Brazil, right?
When you buy the pinto beans, buy some lard. When you’re very poor and living off rice and beans, use the lard and make refried beans. That adds calories and prevents starvation. I know lard something most Americans view as unhealthy and something to avoid, but when there’s not enough calorie rich food, it can save your life. Also, cream of wheat is a great source of iron. When faced with food insecurity, cream of wheat can help ward off anemia. As for your bag of chicpeas, you should get a can of coconut milk and curry powder to go with it. You can make coconut curry chicpeas, which has more calories and nutrients than just chicpeas.
@Alice L In 2016 the Nobel Prize was awarded for studies in what was called “autophagy”, which means the body eats (enzymatically) dead cells, acidic wastes, placque, tumors, etcetera, etcetera, and restores a stagnant lymphatic system to child-like fluidity.
Fasting autophagy can be either moderated with some water or full force autophagy – no water, no food 24/7 for as long as one can tolerate it. I’ve restored thyroid function to a thyroid removed in 1971 simply doing a series of two-weeks long strict medical dryfasts (no food, no water 24/7). That is what was needed to regenerate the thyroid and get me totally off glandulars, which might be someday very hard to come by if things go south much.
Tk u 😃👍
Minnie And when you have lard on hand you can make tortillas! Yum
natural fat is not unhealthy. processed oils are. ever squeeze oil from a kernel of corn? NOPE. it’s a chemical process. it creates cholesterol. Look at the keto diet. look how you can fast for a long time. your body is eating fat and your brain is calm on ketones. no need for bi-polar meds.
You sound like my grandma. She nearly wept when she found out I used lard for my pie crust. She whispered to me, as if it were a secret, “People don’t use that anymore, but it’s the best!”
I would mention beans and lentils in the same breath. Peanut butter is a good keeper and can add variety. It can be used in cooking as well. However, if things get really grim, cooking odors may attract unwelcome visitors so things that don’t need cooking would help conceal what you have. I eat a lot of quick oats and never cook it. I mix it with water, powdered milk, raisins, prunes, almonds, and powdered cinnamon. Eaten like that it’s called muesli, quite common in Europe. I live at an altitude on the equator where I can grow potatoes year-round and have been planting them since mid-March on account of the COVID crisis. I have filtered my roof runoff for almost seven years now for drinking and cooking.
Excellent tips, thanks for sharing!
How do you filter your roof runoff? I have enough to do rain barrels but am worried about heavy metals etc from the shingles, plus whatever is in the rain. What is your set-up for this?
@Rosemary Lucas I’m not worried about impurities in my rainwater since it comes from the huge “river in the sky” consisting of moisture from leaf transpiration in the Amazon rain forest. My “roof” is greenhouse plastic. Some might find health hazards in the plastic but I haven’t worried about it. My main interest is filtering out any neotropical microbes. However, I also boil any water I consume. For dish washing and rinsing, I add chlorine bleach.
Did you know in the US It’s actually illegal to collect rain water!?! I never knew that but was mindblown when I found out
@Marissa Brown Except where it’s legal, which is most states. Some even offer tax credits for rainwater collection systems. See https://www.google.com/search?q=where+in+the+US+can+you+legally+collect+rainwater%3F&rlz=1C1CHWL_esEC921EC921&oq=where+in+the+US+can+you+legally+collect+rainwater%3F&aqs=chrome..69i57j33l7.26442j0j7&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8
Peanut Butter for fast protein. Chicken broth cubes for bean soups. Canned tomato sauce for lentils or navy beans/great northern beans.
@John N I just reorganized my canned goods and the only bad cans were a few tomatoes and pineapple.
Red lentils or green split peas with those chicken broth cubes, curry, onion(fresh or flakes) cook till the lentils/peas break down and serve over rice.
Green split peas, cubed dak ham or spam, ham broth cubes or ham bone, dried vegetable blend, pinch of marjoram for split pea soup.
Lots of recipes out there.
@Death By Cake The salt keeps bouillon from getting bacteria. the powder will turn into a brick so the cubes are better. The bouillon also has no fat so it can last 30 years when stored with O2 absorbers. I used some that were almost 10 years past expiration and they were fine, but weak in taste.
@Josiah’s nana ok, i knew about tomatos and then learned about mardarin oranges, have to watch pineapple too; make sense – all acidic in nature, and thanks for adding that…
@Abram Carroll oh I never knew that yeah bouillon cubes are the best.
Im not a prepper but at the start of the stay at hime orders I started having a sinking feeling that things were going to change dramatically.
I am a little proud of my tiny 5 shelf prep stock but I know it isn’t anywhere near enough like all the preppers have. But hey I’m trying. I have my son who is 15 so I am buying a box of instant pancake mix and a bottle is syrup every time I’m out and I see it and also peanut butter, of course rice beans pasta, canned goods jelly, juice coffee flour sugar and yeast although I can’t seem to find that anymore.
I don’t have a water filtration device but I know I should try to get one.
I’m scared but I’m trying to be brave
And not get overwhelmed.
Doing the best I can
Praying God will do the rest
Just keep plugging away! You got this!
The Earth is flat and stationary like the Bible says
@Jeanne B My local Walmart finally had more than a few, just this Sunday. I suggest you check if there is one close to you. I’m always in the look out for the ones in the jars, which I keep in the freezer to make sure they last a lot longer.
@Carmen Ortiz no worries, I’m well stocked now!
@Mr Arcade Hello can you send me a link of where I can find the straw or water filtration system?
Dont store what you dont like to eat. At some point you will have to rotate.
Right. I’d rather fast than eat SPAM. And a handful of semi-sweet chocolate chips can be a real mood changer. :}
Rene Hunter I like to combine both. I mostly stockpile food that I normally eat. But I also have a good supply of dried beans, rice, inexpensive vegetable oil, cheap peanut butter … probably less than a couple hundred dollars worth of stuff I probably will never eat, but certainly will be happy to have if there’s nothing else.
@G Galilei And if it gets close (but not too close if you can help it ) to its expiration date you can drop it at the food kitchen and know it will have a good use.
Hope Dixon oh no, those expiration dates are corporate lies. Especially canned foods are good for years after. It’s staying in my emergency supply not going to the food bank.
@G Galilei And you could always exchange it with someone who does like it for something you need/want.
Something I’m surprised that I haven’t seen addressed on any “prep” list, is to make sure your stored food packaging is critter proof. Especially rodents and ants.
@Bill Neill I am Vegan for the Animals, for my Ethics and Human(e) Values. I am prepping as a Vegan and reading your comment has brought a great Smile to my heart. Plant Foods are cheap and very nutritious and I agree 100% with you, going Vegan is very easy and simple when you base it on your ethics and values. Thank you for Being one less Human hurting animals, and one more human adding Love and Kindness to this planet. Blessings Your Way!!!
Ants came for my honey many years ago, ants have the best sense of smell of any creature on earth. Even when stuff is sealed they can smell inside. Hope this helps someone.
Lardawg 67 use bay leaves at bottom, middle and top of containers. This should help
@Lardawg 67 I heard to freeze beans – not sure if I’m supposed to do rice too. Supposed to kill any eggs.
Recently I got to find this out 1st hand we have a place away from the big city where we have 5 acres of land RV set up with tons dry goods In packaging that was set up for the noodles we have learned to place inside of glass jars after purchasing because rodents chew through the plastic Eating the noodles😅 Hard lesson but a good one
At the local Korean market we purchase large bags of dried mushrooms, and grind them into mushroom powder for adding umph to soups and sauces. They also sell huge bags of unsalted sheets of kelp – very nutrient dense and makes a good broth – just squeeze some lemon into it for complete electrolytes and bio-available synergistic minerals.
All the ethnic stores are great sources for bargain nutrition. Lots of seaweed in the Asian markets as well.
@Bill Neill Sure thing. We also discovered “Calaloo” a caribbean canned greens of various types, and the taste is okay and can be added to a soup base. Then, there is the animal feed store where we get organic alfalfa pellets – and the humans cold brew a nutrient dense tea, and the animals get it powdered and added to their kibble.
Great idea! I never thought about that! Will try!
@Carmen Lourdes Amaya Very flavorful when pressure cooked in the Instant Pot and slow released. I’m not vegetarian and sometimes I add can of Campbell’s Consomme soup.
ColleenKaralee Perfect! Thank you! I have an IP!.
Something you missed when talking about beans is that most dried beans and lentils you buy at the grocery store can be planted to grow more beans.
I did this, my dad done this as well years ago.
@Kelven Schmidt I tried to grow sugar snap peas and spider mites killed them too. I was only able to get 1 pod per plant before they were killed.
@angela bluebird60 Really? If you keep the potatoes in the right conditions, they can sprout. They would need a very heavy dose to not sprout. My son-in-law grows them and buys seed potatoes every year. I asked him why. He told me the same thing. To prove him wrong I used potatoes from his farm, they all sprouted. Seed potatoes are available now, maybe not in a year or two. I always keep some of mine for the next year, since I plant the specialty kinds and use no chemicals.
@the Hustlin’ Homemaker Same here. Like you, I grow the ORGANIC ones, no problem.
@Carmen Ortiz If specialty means heirloom, they would not be sprayed and so would sprout.
Dried minced onion will last a long time and spice up everything.
@John N you know the ones on the quarter pounder are regular but the ones in like cheeseburgers are dehydrated and is soaked in water plump em up something like that haha
@Death By Cake don’t know about farmer(s) as they are several states north of me…like Wisconsin.
Don’t know the insurance for defiant
But most things being shipped have some kind of security…
@Kelven Schmidt oh yeah probably do have insurance. I live in Hawaii and termites galore and roaches . So anyway one night maybe 9 months ago found a centipede it was so scared he/she hid. Trying to get it out hears cayenne pepper repels them and it worked. That’s when I saw the bugs several inside the cayenne pepper.
I have bought several bottles of minced onion $Tree
@Lynda Busseger My state doesn’t have a dollar tree but good place to buy them. Ty maybe I can order them online at dollar tree website.
With the Covid, the rioting, unstable weather, etc., I’m striving to acquire a TWO YEAR food supply for my famil.
Bruce Forster same mate. got any food ideas/tips?
Me too! I’m up to 6 months right now with 3 people in our house.
I wish everyone would do that
If coffee isn’t part of your prep, you might as well let the zombies get you.
at Snail space – this is a hugh part of my prepping plan actually.
IN MY VERSION, i am preparing for a Civil War in America.. instead of Zombie Apocalypse in your version
In my version i want to be Wired and able to have good reflexs and not all slugish , so my plan revolves around saving up money for a small solar power generator thats powerful enough to power the coffee maker. I want to be able to make Drip coffee in a black out.
snailspace i agree, its the most important food group in the world
@andy gibb The foundation of any sensible diet, and something worth fighting for. Give me coffee, or give me . . . well, if you won’t give me coffee, you should just go now, because this is not going to end well. 😄
Coffee is gross
@Jonathan Black you could just make pour over with a metal filter or cowboy coffee (no filter).
I keep a rubbermaid full of hard candy. Jolly Rancher, rootbeer barrels, werthers, etc. I have a serious sweet tooth. I’ll need my fix before fighting off any zombies. ..dont judge me
Make sure you have good toothpaste and plenty of toothbrushes – having tooth decay in a SHTF (depending on how long the issue lasts) could be painful and deadly! AND we don’t know when or where a dentist would be available. I too love sweets!
Nothing better for when you feel down. I also store candies, plus I have some I packaged for Halloween, hoping for less kids this year. I’m greedy. lol
@Carmen Ortiz Hope you bought your favorites! 😂
A few pkgs of cocoa and coking chocolate for me. Can’t live without chocolate.
