Food Storage list

If you haven't started to compile an urgent situation food storage list, you need to begin immediately. If you need to ask why, you simply aren't watching this news.

Food Storage list  - Our illusion of prosperity is dissipating. America once was the freest, wealthiest, and strongest country in the world. Now we're the greatest debtor society mankind has seen. The dollar can be a sickly caricature of itself, and foreign creditors are rebelling against our government's IOUs. Where we once fed the world, America now is an internet importer of wheat. Our food distribution method is fragile and balanced precariously. Many of these factors should prompt visitors to start working on an emergency food storage list.

Consider what just happened in Japan, an ultra-modern, hi-tech society with a large manufacturing base. Despite a long economic depression, the Japanese maintained a very high standard of living through industry and thrift, making an effort and saving most of what they earned. With the pitiless, indifferent mechanics of plate tectonics, Japan was literally shoved aside, allowing the sea to surge across tens of thousands of acres of land and creating conditions for a world-historic nuclear disaster. Shelves quickly emptied, and lots of Japanese who had been disciplined and thrifty were left subject to others.

Americans weren't as wise and disciplined. What are the results if we suffer comparable disasters? Those who take the time to assembled a short-term emergency food storage list will enjoy at least a measure of security.

Think also of Weimar-era Germany, where a government frantic to pay off war reparations let the printing presses run amok. The remorseless devaluation from the German reichmark literally wiped out millions of Germans, a lot of whom had to empty their lifetime savings just to buy groceries. Similar catastrophes have descended on Russia, Zimbabwe, and Argentina. And guess which country's government is behaving inside a fashion very similar to the Weimar-era German government? What is your opinion "quantitative easing" means, if not Weimar-style inflation? Should you understand the implications of the questions, you really should take time to write an emergency food storage list for the household.

An emergency food storage list should initially call for an adequate two-week supply of storable, easily prepared foods, in addition to at least 14 gallons of water for each person per household. Eventually, a family emergency food storage list should provide for a year's supply of essential foods: grains, legumes, fruit and veggies, milk and dairy, sugars, fats and oils, and prepared items.

For your typical family of four, a year-long emergency food storage list includes roughly a half-ton of carbohydrates (including grains, pasta, and flour); approximately three hundred pounds of powdered milk and dehydrated dairy food; up to 240 pounds of legumes (which would include mixes for soup and chili); the identical amount of sugars (including honey, jams, corn syrup), and 740 pounds each of vegetables and fruits.

Obviously, quantities of the size cannot be obtained simultaneously. A good approach would be to start immediately having a two-week plan (simply dividing those quantities by 26), then build up as opportunities and resources permit. Another very good approach is to buy dry goods in big amounts, and then grow, harvest, and may a variety of fresh vegetables (for example corn, peas, beans, tomatoes) and fruits, when possible.

Few things are as rewarding as the peace of mind that comes from preparation, specially in times like the present. If you haven't taken a chance to start mapping out a crisis food storage list, please so right away.
