What are you going to eat when the zombies beak out and McDonald’s closes? When the EM Pulse Bomb or Solar X-Flare fries the grid? Better be ready! Here are the foods you should be stocking up on – foods you can buy, a few cans or sacks at a time every time you go shopping.

Rice

Rice stores wonderfully, it’s a great source of carbohydrates, and it stretches all your other food.

Dry Beans

Of all survival foods, dried beans might be the cornerstone. They’re a marvelous source of protein, minerals and fiber. They’re cheap and can be stored for long periods. They also work as seeds.

Cornmeal

If you love tortillas, you’re familiar with the ‘Flour or Cornmeal?’ dilemma. In a survival situation, it’s a simple answer: cornmeal. It lasts longer than flour and is simpler to use in cooking. Cornmeal, lard and salt are all you need for a skillet cake.

Lard

Cooking will require oil, and lard is the most concentrated, storage-able form of cooking oil. Lard is also high in calories.

Peanut Butter

Peanut butter isn’t just a source of protein, it’s a source of fat, and your body needs it. Also, don’t worry about that expiration date. Store it properly and peanut butter can last almost as long as you do.

Canned Meat

Being in a survival situation doesn’t mean you need to become a vegetarian. Cans of tuna, chicken and pork will last nearly forever, round out your need for protein, and perhaps keep you sane.

Pasta

See: rice. Pasta can extend your food, or be a food in itself. Unlike rice, pasta can be made from almost any kind of food.

Sugar And Honey

Sugar and honey aren’t just sweeteners. They’re also a great way to preserve meat. They also have non-edible uses, too, such as providing quick bandaging.

Salt

Salt stores food – it’s indispensable if you intend to hunt or fish – and it makes bland food palatable. Your body also needs it to survive, something we forget in our sodium-packed pre-disaster world. But in a world without 7-11s, you’d better have salt.

Canned Fruit And Vegetables

Like meat, there’s something a little less than ideal about fruits and vegetables in cans, but we’re talking survival here. You’ll need your Vitamin C and other nutrients, and you’ll need the food that is sweet and, for psychological purposes, even colorful.
