Random thoughts on rice

rice

The Paleo diet I follow does not afford eating much rice except as a “cheat” food. Regardless – I have stored rice and plan to put back a lot more of it. Rice is super cheap and very versatile. One of my favorite meals is Beef Stew and Rice. Pretty simple and very filling. I open a can of Beef Stew – heat it up and pour it on a bed of rice. Tasty!

I don’t know where this came from but it is a pretty good guide to go by especially for those on a budget. Heck – if someone did this for a year they would be much better off than most people.

Myself – I have started stocking up on freeze dried foods a lot more. Some pouches – but trying to budget in #10 cans.

Here are the ingredients:

Growing Fish and Plants for Food Preparedness – Free Ebook Launch

aquaponics 11 theaquaponicsource.com

 

Vegetable gardening is an essential prepping activity, but most of us don’t want to live on beans as our main source of protein in the event of a food shortage. Enter aquaponics – the marriage of aquaculture (raising fish) and hydroponics (growing plants in water and without soil) together in one integrated system. The fish waste provides organic food for the growing plants and the plants naturally filter the water in which the fish

I have noticed a trend over the last few years when it comes to food storage, A lot of companies are claiming anything in order to get your business. I wanted to expose these things as food storage lies, whether intentional or not.

Mountain House Taste Test…..Chili Mac with Beef

mh-food

Have you ever tried freeze dried food? Over the years I have tried many different brands and flavors – some good, some bad. As I continue to add long term freeze dried foods to my system I have found it very useful to try smaller pouches before spending the money on larger #10 cans. Hey – why buy foods that you and your family don’t like and will not eat?

I recently ordered several

Do You Have What it Takes to Raise Backyard Chickens?

free_range_attack

by Nate Smith

The simple fact that you even find yourself reading this article probably means that you satisfy the first requirement of raising backyard chickens: desire. Obviously, without a strong desire to keep chickens the occasional hassles and burdens of doing so would quickly become overwhelming, leaving you wondering why you ever got started with such a silly idea in the first place! So let’s go back to assuming that you do

Food storage recipes……Part 1

This past April I put out a request for food storage recipes. My intent was to have some kind of contest with all the recipes that came flooding in. Unfortunately – the actual number of recipes received was relatively low. Rather than let them all go to waste I figured I would go ahead and publish some of them.

Thanks Harry for the idea to begin with!

Idea’s for cheap food storage

food storage, pancakes, SHTF, preparedness

Like many others I am living on a fairly strict budget. Adding to my food storage is not always easy as I have two boys that I must keep fed. In some recent discussions with other like-minded folks the subject of “budget foods” came up. Basically those are foods that can be bought very inexpensively to add to a program to increase the overall food stores.

Let’s look at a few “budget foods”:

Prepping Doesn’t Have to Drive You Crazy!

The following is a guest post entry into our Survival & Preparedness Writing Contest.

by Leslie

Prepping can be overwhelming; I know it has been for me. Where to start? What to buy? How much is enough? Am I missing something my family will need in a crisis? These questions circulate through my brain constantly, and I have been prepping for a while now. I remember how intimidating it was in the beginning. That is

My favorite “survival” food

beef-stew-rice

My food storage program consists of grocery store foods, freeze dried, dehydrated, and bulk stores such as rice, wheat, and beans. I have been thinking that I really need to inventory everything and come up with a menu system. Having a schedule of what we can and will prepare would likely take the edge off what will already be a very stressful time. It would just be one less thing to worry about. From there
