Making a Wise Choice in Long Term Survival Food Emergency or survival kits should obviously include food. Not just any other food, but foods which are typically ready-to-eat and practical for on-the-go situations. One of the most well-known companies that specialize in manufacturing and selling pre-made foods for emergency purposes is Wise Foods, Inc. Many people claim that Wise Foods offer the best in survival, emergency and camping food on the market, and with good reason. Unlike other foods of the same kind, Wise Foods are the least expensive of them all. Moreover, it is packaged in compact serving pouches so it is very portable and light, it tastes great and is available in varieties. Survival foods should not spoil easily so that they can be stored for a long period of time. Wise Foods boast of a shelf life of 25 years! A combination of dehydration and freeze drying method in preserving food was used, which makes maintains both the nutritional value and the great taste at the same time. Customers also prefer their packaging to that of some other survival food products. Some brands use cans in packaging their food, which forces them to eat large amounts of their food to keep from soiling it.


Wise Foods products also come in re-sealable packs or pouches which are then kept in large, sturdy buckets made of plastic. These buckets are surprisingly light enough to be carried even by a child so that during emergency situations, you and your child will be able to carry one or two months' food supply. The buckets will also prove to be useful for other things like digging and disposing of waste. What's more, the bottom part of each container is fashioned in a way that they lock together when they are stacked, so they won't actually take up much space in your basement, storage room or wherever you're planning to position your survival food supply. In buying Wise Foods products, you will be given a choice between breakfast, lunch and dinner entrees as well as a selection of gourmet freeze dried vegetable, fruits and meat. Some of the gourmet breakfast choices they have include crunchy granola, cereal and apple cinnamon. Their dinner and lunch selection consist of tasty and mouthwatering treats like pasta alfredo, chili or cheesy macaroni, rotini, tortilla or tomato basil soup, stroganoff and teriyaki with rice. Their products are very easy to prepare. Some of their foods only require boiling water and after 12 to 15 minutes, your food will be ready. Long term survival food is not necessarily limited to emergency, disaster-related situations only. You can also consume your stocked emergency food on times when you or your family need a quick meal but you're too tired to cook. The nutritional value and taste of Wise Foods products will surely be a great substitute for home cooked meals. In addition, if you stock up on these kinds of food, then you are


also prepared for economic crises that may arise in the future. Keeping emergency food will ensure that your family will still be well-fed in times of inflation and difficult financial times.

How To Store Survival Food Supplies You know you need a supply of survival foods, but you may not know how to store them. The type of survival food supplies purchased will often dictate how they are stored and how they are rotated to prevent spoilage. The following reviews the most common types of emergency survival food and recommendations for storage and rotation. Most survival food kits contain only enough supplies for a single person for up to three days. Supplies of this sort should be stored in the trunk of every vehicle and in each family member's emergency go bag. Energy bars, containing as many as nine 400-calorie meals, can even be stored in children's backpacks, ladies handbags and in the glove compartment of every vehicle. Short-term survival food kits require little space for storage and often have shelf lives of up to 5 years. Foods should be checked periodically to ensure they are still good but cannot truly be rotated since they are not part of the normal food supply. Always check to ensure your emergency food supply is still good before going on camping trips or on long drives. Many survival food kits are meant to provide families with supplies for one week or more. These are ideal for protection against hurricanes, earthquakes and other natural disasters. As learned from Hurricane Katrina, relief can sometimes take up two weeks to arrive in the hardest hit areas. Grocery stores will not have the food and water supplies needed to support an urban population once the trucks and trains are no longer able to reach the city to resupply. Supplies will dwindle and


disappear completely in about three days. Families should have several kits placed in strategic locations throughout the home. This will help ensure family members can reach food even in the event of a partial home collapse. Supplies often have a very long shelf life but should be checked regularly to ensure they are still usable. Long-term food survival solutions of 3 month or more require greater amounts of storage space. Some families have set aside an entire room for an extremely large survival food supply. These rooms are often organized with shelving, with newer items being unloaded into the rear and older items being moved to the front of shelves. Families that do this constantly live off of their long-term food storage to keep their supply fresh. In an actual emergency, food may be more carefully rationed but it consists of the same items the family is already used to eating. This is a great way to handle food survival when children are young and may be unwilling to eat things, especially in emergency situations, that they are not used to eating already. Storing survival foods properly can mean the difference between life and death for families facing emergency situations. If you have chosen to invest in an emergency food supply, be sure you store it properly and check it routinely to ensure your family still has the protection you paid for. The guidelines presented here should help you determine how to best store and rotate your survival foods.


7 'Survival Foods' Found in Most Grocery Stores With politicians continuing to do what they do best, which is spend other people's money like there's no tomorrow and print more when they run out, there is a very good chance that we in the US will experience much higher inflation before too long and possibly hyperinflation. When that happens, food prices will skyrocket, and there will be a run on grocery stores. Given that it doesn't take much to send people into a food-buying frenzy as it is (threat of natural disasters, H1N1 rumors, etc) along with the fact that most grocery stores only keep about 3 days worth of supplies on hand, and there's a good chance that a lot of people will be left unprepared should such a situation ever occur. For these reasons and several others, it's good to at least have a 72hour food and water supply on hand for you and your family. The problem is, when most people think of stockpiling food, they picture the stereotypical survivalist in a backwoods cabin storing grain in 50 gallon barrels. Since very few people have the time or desire to fill up barrels with grain and drag them to a remote patch of wilderness, most people simply forgo stockpiling all together and just hope for the best. Instead of simply hoping for the best, I'm going to give you 7 items that you can use to easily stockpile at least 72 hours worth of food, and for


much longer if you'd like. Best of all, you won't even have to set foot in a wheat field in order to get started, since all of the items can be easily found in most grocery and Walmart-type stores. Of course if you go to Walmart, you might have to use your 72-hour food supply just to survive the line :) Just to clarify, by 72-hours worth of food, I mean that if you and your family had no other source of food, your stockpile should be enough to last for 72 hours. My criteria for a "survival food" is simply a food of high nutritional value, it has an expiration date a year or more away from the day you buy it, and it is a food that you're already used to eating and know you like. If it's lightweight and portable, even better. Keep in mind that the idea here is not to pile up a bunch of food and let it sit for three years. The purpose of your stockpile of food is to have extra food on hand in case your source of food is ever cut off. To keep your supply fresh, you should always be eating the foods from your stockpile and replacing what you eat with fresh supplies. Only when you no longer have a source of food to replace what you eat should the expiration dates of your supplies come into play. 7 'Survival Foods' Found In Most Grocery Stores 1. Tuna Fish and Salmon Pouches You can buy the cans, but the pouches are significantly lighter and, in my opinion, taste better. I bought several tuna pouches the other day at Walmart. They were on special for $0.99 each and have an expiration date of January 22, 2012. The salmon pouches are a little harder to find


and cost more but are still nice to have around. I like to mix the tuna with some hot black beans and either salsa or Tabasco. 2. Peanut Butter Everyone has their brand of choice, but peanut butter (in my case, creamy JIF) is a cheap, quick source of protein, fats, carbs, and calories when you need them. Most peanut butter will have an expiration date that's 1.5 - 2 years beyond the date you purchase it. I once hiked all over Missoula, Montana with nothing but a jar of peanut butter, a spoon, and a water bottle equipped with a filter. 3. Dried Pasta Dried pasta is another cheap, easily accessible 'survival food'. When stored properly, this stuff can last for years. Boil some water, throw in your pasta, drain, add some tomato sauce, and you've got yourself a great-tasting, very filling meal. 4. Canned Goods Canned food is a great way to store meats, fruits, and vegetables for whenever the fresh options aren't available. Be sure that the cans you buy are in good condition (no dents), and you'll have a source of food that will last well beyond a year. 5. Instant/Dehydrated Potatoes


If stored in a cool, dry place, instant potatoes can last for years. When you're ready to eat, just add water, and you have a great-tasting addition to any meal. 6. Oatmeal I admit, this one made the list primarily because I created the list. There are probably more essential foods that could have occupied this position, such as rice, but truth be told, I don't eat a lot of rice, but I eat tons of oatmeal. Like most things on this list, oatmeal is cheap, easy to find, and very easy to prepare. The expiration date will give you about a year to eat it. In my case, I like to add a little butter, a dash of cinnamon, and a lot of honey. When available, I also like to mix in a handful of fresh blueberries. In addition to breakfast, this is usually my pre-game meal when I play in basketball leagues. When other players' energy starts to fade in the second half, my oatmeal, honey, and blueberries keep me well-fueled to the finish. Oatmeal can do the same for you, whether you're surviving or simply starting your day. (Quaker Oats, if you're reading, how was that for a commercial?) 7. Emergen-C Emergen-C packets are an easy and portable way for you to load up on several important vitamins and minerals. The packets are dated to last about a year. The instructions recommend that you mix the powder in 4-6 oz of water, but I just fill the glass with about an inch of water, add


in the powder, swirl it around, and down it. It tastes great and provides you with a nice energy boost. Honorable mentions: Rice, Tomato sauce, Honey, Lentils, Pizza Mix, Chocolate Do NOT forget water when you're planning your food supply! When people are preparing their food stockpile, they often forget water. Water is essential for survival as well as the cleaning and preparation of most foods. At the very least, you should have 1 gallon per person per day on hand.

You Can Never Be Overly Prepared For Disaster With A Survival Food Supply And Water Supply Most families and businesses do not like thinking about meeting with a terrorist attack or natural disaster in their area. However, we are not in control of such events happening, and should a hurricane or earthquake hit it may be hours before emergency help arrives and even worse yet, it may be days before you are discovered under the ruble of what used to be your office or home. How would you and your family survive without food and water supplies? As we all know one can survive without food for a few days, but you will not survive without water for longer than a day. You can now easily extend the number of days with a 72 hour kit. Even though many people think that the Red Cross will rescue them and provide them with aid, in reality after a major disaster how many people realistically are reported alive after 72 hours when they have experienced fires, hurricanes, earthquakes, floods, tornado or terrorist attacks. If your business or home is properly prepared you won't have to worry about a survival food supply, as your 72 hour kit has all the supplies you will need to get you through 72 hours. All you are required to add to a 72 hour kit is some comfortable clothing and then store the kit in a safe zone where it is easily


accessible. If anyone in the family suffers from diabetes or a heart condition, make sure you pack in sufficient medications to last the person for at least three or more days. You also need to check the survival food supply and medication expiry dates at least every six months. Although at the time of packing you survival supplies, it may seem as if you have abundance of items, but in the event of you being stranded for three or more days, you will be surprised how quickly your supplies get consumed. In particular, one should take the time to make sure that their elderly relatives and friends are well equipped with a survival kit and at the same time, take time to explain to them how to make use of all the items and what they should do in the event of a disaster taking place, as this could save their life. Bear in mind that worldwide, people are not only facing threats from natural disasters but also from enemies that do not hesitate attacking various countries. In addition to preparing the elderly, you also need to prepare your children for such events. Never rely on cell phones or telephones, always make sure you have a sound backup plan in place, in the event the family becomes separated. Make sure the contact details of relatives and friends are included in the kit, as well as maps and other relevant information. Once can never be overly prepared for a disaster especially a sufficient survival food supply and water supply. At the same time make sure you also have a vehicle safety kit of which can all be obtained online.


4 Basic Wild Survival Foods In my last survival article I discussed the Sacred Order; shelter, water, fire, food. When you have your shelter, water source and fire you will begin to think about eating. In this article I will discuss 4 basic wild edibles that can be easily found almost everywhere. First, I would like to touch upon an important spiritual aspect of gathering from Earth Mother. It is important to remember to ask permission to take from Earth Mother and then give thanks, express gratitude. Give something back. A tobacco offering is appropriate if you have it. Collect what you need with a "caretaker" attitude, which means gather in a way that will leave the area healthier and better able to grow and replenish. Ponder the effect your taking will have on the next 7 generations, remember, we did not inherit the land from our forefathers, we are borrowing it from our children and grandchildren. Leave plenty for them! Correct identification of plants is of extreme importance! Your life may depend on it! Be certain of the identification of plants before eating as some plants are poisonous. I suggest you obtain a field guide and start learning to identify edible plants in your area as well as poisonous plants to stay away from. Pine: Pinaceae Family, Pinus Genus. Pines are evergreens with needles that grow in clusters of 2-


Pine is edible year round, however you must eat from a living tree or a very freshly downed tree. Parts to eat: needles, inner bark, buds, young green cones, pollen, nuts. Needles: Pull bundle cap off, chop needles and make tea. Steep in hot water until needles sink to bottom. Inner Bark: This is the cambium layer. It is white in color and is edible year round. The inner bark is high in nutrients, vitamin C and sugar. You can eat the inner bark raw, boil it like noodles or dry it and pound it into flour. Pine Buds: Eat the bright green new ones in the spring. You can eat raw or boil them and sweeten with honey or sugar. Pollen: Gather by shaking into a bag. Eat raw, in stew, or mix with your pine bark flour. The pollen is very high in protein. Young Green Cones: In summer you can gather the newly forming cones and boil for a few minutes and eat. Pine Nuts: In autumn gather the nuts from pine cones and eat raw or grind into pine nut butter. Oak: Quercus genus. Part eaten: Acorns Oak is very high in tannic acid so more preparation is needed before eating.


After gathering your acorns you will want to dry them for several weeks for storage. If you are going to use them right away you don't have to dry them. First you will shell them. Then winnow them using a shallow bowl or basket, toss up and down to remove the husks. You must leech acorns before using! To leech chop them into quarters and put into already boiling water for 5 minutes. Pour the water off and repeat this process 5-6 times. This process removes the tannic acid and makes the acorns edible. Eat acorns or pound into flour. Acorn flour can be used just like regular flour. The flour loses about half it's nutrients in 2-3 days so don't pound into flour until you are ready to use it. Store your acorns in a cool, dry, dark place, keeps for several months. Acorns are high in protein and fat. Grass: Graminaceae (14,000 species) Parts eaten: roots, leaves, seeds. You can eat the roots of grasses year round either raw or cooked. Eat the leaves raw or dry and pound (grind) to add to other flour. Don't grind until you are ready to use it. Seeds are ready when they turn are brownish in color and fall off into your hand. You can boil and eat like hot cereal or pound them into flour. The flour makes yummy breads and cakes.


High in vitamins. Caution! Be aware of Ergot Fungus! Ergot fungus grows in the place of seed, it is enlarged, purple or black in color. Is most common in domestic rye, but can be found in grasses. Ergot Fungus prefers moist areas. Do your research and make sure you can identify Ergot Fungus! Cattail: Typha genus Parts eaten: new shoots in spring, flower head, leaves, pollen, rhizome (root), corms. Shoots: Gather in spring or early summer. Always cook the shoots (bake, boil) and eat the core. Flower head: Steam or boil and eat like corn on the cob. Pollen: Eat raw or use for flour. Leaves: Eat the leaves the same as grasses. Rhizome (root): Make flour with the roots. Wash the root, split it in half, dig out the white part into a container of water. Let it settle, then pour off the water. The flour will be in the bottom. You can dry the flour for later use or use it right away to make cakes, breads, etc. Nutrients: starch and protein. Corms: Corms are found along the roots. Feel for a hard knot and collect the hard knot. Prepare and eat like a potato. High in vitamins and other nutrients.


These are the basic wild edible foods that can keep you alive and healthy for a long period of time in a survival situation. Having a spiritual connection with our Earth Mother is the most important skill of all. Learn her voice and how to communicate with her and instead of surviving, you will flourish.

Urban Survival - Food Storage and Preparation Global warming, climate change, eco-terrorism and an unstable economy should make American families think about returning to some of the practices of our grandparents. Following a disaster, be it natural, or man-made, local emergency providers will probably be facing the same problems as the rest of the community. It can take three days, 72 hours, for anyone to come to your assistance, but in certain circumstances you may find yourself on your own for much longer than that. We Americans take an endless supply of food for granted. Recent studies show that the average American family has less than a one week supply of food on hand. Grocery supermarkets and warehouses are the same. Food storage is a major part of disaster preparedness and one that many people neglect to consider. In my articles I stress the need to be prepared to survive the 1st 72 hours following a disaster, but you would be well advised to store enough food your family to live for a month. In a true fuel crisis, in a widespread winter weather emergency, or following an act of terrorism, our normal food supplies will be depleted quickly.


In our unstable economy no one is sure if they will have a job next month, next week, or even tomorrow. Today, we Americans are more vulnerable to events beyond our control than we have been at any time since world War II. Food storage is an insurance policy that we can take to protect ourselves against such things as loss of power, job loss, unemployment due to injury or illness, or a loss of food supplies due to an interruption of food transportation. This is not paranoia, survivalist thinking, or hoarding. It is a common sense practice that we have neglected because we could. Here are some food storage tips that will make the practice more palatable, no pun intended. The Basics Always store a larger than normal supply of the basics, grains, dehydrated milk, sugar, salt, oil, flour, garden seeds and storable produce like potatoes, onions, beets, cabbage, etc. Store food that is familiar and acceptable to your family and know how to prepare the food you store. Use food from your stores that have a limited shelf life and replace them with fresh items, immediately. If you have a limited budget, buy one item at a time until you have your stores in place.Shopping at wholesale markets can save you a considerable amount of money on such things as salt, flour, oil and sugar.


Protect stored food from rodent and insect infestation by storing it in large tins. Empty potato chip cans make excellent storage containers. Many thrift stores and feed stores have these at rock bottom prices. Once you have adopted this forgotten practice you will find that you actually feel better about your circumstances. Self-reliance is always better than depending on the charity of others who may, or may not, come to your rescue.
