In both the ‘30s and recent history, economic collapses and food shortages troubled average people across the nation and globe.
While a global food and energy crisis may seem outlandish to some, there’s no harm in being prepared by knowing what foods to store in the event of such a blowback.
In an ideal world, we would all have access to locally raised, organic, fresh foods, but this isn’t the reality in which we currently live. In the event of such a crisis, it is important to makeup your survival food storage with food that will last for several years or even decades, and is somewhat nutrient-dense.
Here are 4 foods to help you prepare for the worst and hope for the best.
1. Survival Food Storage – Stay Clean with White Vinegar
You can use white vinegar in salad dressings and marinades, but don’t forget that it’s also a great eco-friendly (and pocketbook-friendly) alternative to conventional cleaners. Poured into a spray bottle with equal parts water, you can refresh musty rooms and closets and clean everything from shower mold to window stains. It also has an almost indefinite shelf life.
Distilled white vinegar will maintain its quality and taste for about as the entirety of its lifespan – it is perfect for survival food storage.
2. Keep Sea Salt on the Table
Compared to table salt, sea salt is slightly more mineral-dense, but both provide the same amount of sodium by weight. Salt is, in the kitchen, a great flavor enhancer as well as a fantastic meat preservative. Thrown into a bath, sea salt can also help relieve eczema and psoriasis.
