Be Prepared: 4 Foods for Your Survival Food Storage

Lisa Garber
Waking Times

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 and Crisp 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.

3. Keep Clean and Sweet with Honey

We have no need to worry about the shelf life of honey. (Archaeologists have recovered containers of it from Egyptian tombs!) Raw honey is chock-full of enzymes, essential nutrients, and, of course, sweetness to make a simple cup of tea a treat. Honey has antioxidant, antibacterial, and humectant (moisturizing), which all help make up the seemingly endless health benefits of honey. It is great in treating cuts as well as dry skin or acne. And don’t worry if it starts crystallizing or changing color; simply add clean water and stir until of preferred consistency.

4. Stay Sharp with Coconut Oil

Known for preventing and even reversing Alzheimer’s disease, as well as being among home remedies for itching and fungal infections, coconut oil is stable, doesn’t require refrigeration, and (properly purified and unrefined) will keep for at least one year. A great butter alternative for vegans, coconut oil can be used to cook most foods and even add depth of flavor to uncooked varieties.

Food and energy crises are not just the stuff of conspiracies. A crisis can happen anywhere – under the right (or wrong) circumstances. Keeping these foods in your survival food storage along with plenty of fresh water will help ease such a transition as well as nicely augment a frugal lifestyle.
