So, what should we put in our emergency food supplies for earthquake preparedness? Seems like most things that can be stored for a long time are processed food items.
If I belonged to a church that recommended a years supply of food because of a wtshtf scenario, I'd store wheat, corn, and rice. Survival takes precedence over optimal health.
Most disasters in developed nations require 3 - 14 days worth of food and water to "survive." I'd go with canned tuna, sardines, vegetables, etc - things that can be eaten cold.
Canned fish would work. You could eat them as they get old and replace with new ones. Coconut oil is a great suggestion as well. You might also try rice. Not perfectly paleo, but it will keep you alive.
I've had 2 backpacks (one in my car and one in my apartment) packed for a year. But every time there's a major earthquake it reminds me to go through them and take out expired items and add better stuff. Now that I'm doing Paleo I've removed sweet nutrition bars and dried fruit, but I realize my DOG has more food in the bag than I do. I want to put as much Paleo food as I can in there so here's my new list:
Sugar free beef jerky
Freeze dried low sugar fruit (like raspberries and blue berries) Ditto FD vegetables
Salt & Pepper & White tea
Seaweed (nori and Konbu)
Canned Macadamia nuts
Pint Jar of coconut oil or Ghee
Bottle of Fermented Cod liver oil (the one supplement I choose)
Canned Tuna and other canned or dried fish
Possibly rice b/c it is a neutral grain for me and easily portable and long lasting.
Stainless steel bottles of water changed regularly
For me it's important that my bag be portable, so nothing too heavy to carry on my back. This emergency kit is for short term emergencies only.
I belong to a church which suggests having a year supply of food. Have done so for many years. But one of the suggestions is wheat. I have been wondering that same thing for months now. What do we put into out storage? I have a friend who cans his game meat, but what else?
