Re: WRSA Food Storage

This photo was posted at WRSA today as a example of food storage.


Now I don't know about you, but if I didn't have a lot of cash, this food list in the photo above would be the last thing I would purchase.

You need to stop thinking like an American with your fancy pre-prepared crap.  This pantry pictured is full of expensive luxury items.

Think BASICS.  

Starches

Oils

Fats

Protein.

Whole corn and learn how to prepare it, including making hominy.  

Rice. I eat rice 2-3 meals a day.  Not that hard to get used to.

Make your own dried foods.  Dehydrator.  No biggie.

Salt

Bulk spices from restaurant supply and then only stuff you can't buy fresh and dehydrate.

Dried chiles are both a spice and vegitable btw.

Make your own dried meats.  You could cut back to a ounce or less a day and get along fine.

This was the biggest thing I had to un-learn after going overseas.  To stop buying like an American and wasting so much money.

You need to start thinking like a third world person.  Your country is becoming that, and you need to develop third world survival mindset.
