Do you have a plan? Don’t you realize that zombies are coming? C’mon, people!! It’s what’s trending now……
Ok, okay. So maybe there won’t be zombies, but there might be some really, really desperate neighbors knocking on your door if the lights go out. And when I mean lights……I mean all lights….so pretty much anything with a plug….
Where will YOU be when the coffee runs out?? Oh, mercy….you haven’t even thought about this, have you? Luckily for you, I have a plan. I think it’s about time we start stockpiling. Everything. I’ve already started with shoes and skirts.
And don’t just think that I’m the only one talking about this! Check out www.ready.gov and check out their exhaustive list of stuff you should be planning! Who knew that we were supposed to be so busy??
Now, if you are a green-living-recycling kind of person, you are going to want to stockpile organic and natural foods. So after zipping around the net, I have found a fancy-schmancey list of the top 50 storable foods for you to have in your
compound home. You can find them listed HERE. Now, before you get all technical, not everything is organic, but hey! It’s zombie time!! We don’t have the luxury of bamboo forks and eco-friendly tablewear because of the scary neighbors and such.
But for all of us that eat burrito’s from our local gas station, here is a real GROCERY list that you can get from your real local grocery store..you know, before it’s too late……..(source: naturalnews.com)
These items are very low cost, loaded with nutrients, and are easy to store:
• Sugar (not to eat, but to barter with. Never eat white processed sugar.) Buy coconut sugar if you can.
• Pepper (a basic spice, easy to store, easy to barter).
• Mustard (excellent nutrition, believe it or not. Made from mustard seeds.)
• Raisins (easy to store and barter)
• Lard (yeah, lard. On a cold winter’s night when the heat is off, you’ll wish you had some soup made with lard… and it’s healthier than “vegetable oil” which is mostly GMO soybean oil anyway.)
• Pickled vegetables (all kinds, including sauerkraut)
• Coffee (even if you don’t drink it, you can barter it. People will be desperate.)
• Coffee filters (can also be used to help filter water, cooking oil and other items)
• Brown rice (large bags)
• Steel-cut oatmeal
• Local honey (stored practically forever)
• Sardines and anchovies packed in olive oil (excellent storable omega-3s)
• Sea salt (you almost can’t have too much salt stored away…)
• Yet more sea salt
• And even MORE sea salt, because you will run out in a prolonged collapse scenario.
• Peanut butter (portable, high calories, which you’ll need)
• Canned meats (long shelf life)
• Canned vegetables (you’ll need the nutrients)
• Natural dried meats (AVOID all MSG!)
• Nuts and nut mixes (almonds, cashews, etc.)
• Cans of coconut milk or coconut fat (adds delicious flavor to any meal)
• Spare can openers, kitchen knife, small cutting board, etc.
You are also going to need to learn how to barter. Mainly because there is “lard” on that list and I think we could certainly trade it for something better….like, nail polish or a something shiny. THINK NECESSITIES!
The important thing here is to learn how to barter, and that can be done HERE.
Prepare yourself people! I can’t do everything!!!
