Food Storage: List Of 25 Essential Survival Foods. Photo – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5os_9dfjOtE
We found a great video by FTBLETSAS that will show you a list of 25 essential survival foods that you need to keep in your home.
The most important part when it comes to storage is that you need to stock foods that will last longer – so that when the need arises, you have your supplies and they are not spoiled. For this reason also it is generally advised to rotate your food stocks. This simple practice means eating up the stuff that is older as opposed to the newest stocks, thereby keeping the “average age” of the items in your food supply lower.
Staples such as rice, whole grains and pasta were awarded a big space in the bottom of the “food pyramid”. These bulk supplies keep well if kept dry, are generally inexpensive and provide good “basic” nutrition and energy. They are considered good survival foods. If you want to have a healthier alternative, go for brown or wild rice instead of white. Choose multigrain pasta instead of regular. Cereals also have healthier sugar-free, additive free varieties and for best results, it might be best to mix up your own from simple ingredients.
Fruits and vegetables are, of course very important because they provide you with essential nutrients that are needed for your body to function properly. Eating fresh produce is the most ideal way of taking in your nutrients but when it comes to survival situations, canned or dried fruits and vegetables are the most practical. They may not be as high in nutrients as their fresher counterparts, but they will still provide you with nutrition and importantly, will keep for a good while.

Nuts, beans and dried meats provide a good source of protein. Also, oils, fats and sweets are needed by the body but they should be consumed sparingly.
The video shows you all of the foods that you can store in your home that will cover almost all of the foods found in the food pyramid (dairy can easily spoil that’s why it’s not included in the list). Stock up on these products gradually and you will have an extensive repertoire of food in your pantry!
Here’s one last survival tip: What type of storage containers will you use? Glass is considered to be “perfect” as far as not leaching anything undesirable into the food – but consider this: If you live in an earthquake zone, all your glass food containers might get smashed, and there is simply no way that you can possibly risk eating anything that might have even a tiny sliver of glass in it. This is why survivalists often suggest to use unbreakable containers. Food grade stainless steel is perhaps the ultimate – but “evil plastic” is durable, light and strong… survival is so often about making the best of non-ideal circumstances…
