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 like white rice. Yeah, I know – it is not the most nutritional food in the world. In fact – it does not have much nutritional value at all but it is full of carbs which provide energy and does contain some protein. Brown rice is not good for long term storage anyways. Due to its versatility of being able to be combined with many other foods it can play a decent role in variation in meals when using food storage foods.
Cheap calories. Tremendously long storage life. Simple to prepare. Can be combined with many other foods.
What more could you ask for?
The rice that I already have stored away in mylar and buckets I have bought from the grocery store and at SAM’s. Online sources also can ship pre-packaged rice in buckets directly to your door.
How much rice do you have put back?
