When building an emergency food supply, it's important to round out your supply with various foods to ensure that you have a balanced and nutritious diet during an emergency. Aim to include a mix of food groups in your emergency food supply, such as grains, protein sources, fruits, and vegetables.
Including vegetables in your food storage is essential for several reasons. Vegetables provide vital nutrients, vitamins, and minerals that your body needs to stay healthy and add flavor and variety to your meals. Freeze-drying vegetables removes all the moisture, making them shelf-stable for an extended period and preserving their nutrients and flavors. By including a variety of vegetables in your food storage, you can ensure that you have access to nutritious and delicious food, no matter what happens. Our 120 Serving Freeze Dried Vegetable Bucket is a perfect addition to any food supply with up to 25-year shelf life. Each bucket includes broccoli, green beans, corn, and peas. These pair perfectly with our entrees as a side dish, or you can eat them alone. This can help ensure that you're getting a balanced and nutritious meal, even in an emergency.
Growing your vegetables is a cost-effective way to have fresh vegetables on hand. You can grow vegetables in your backyard or on your balcony or windowsill. Growing your seeds is an excellent way to become more self-sufficient and reduce your reliance on grocery stores or the government, especially in the case of an emergency. The Wise Food Storage Seed Vault contains 39 varieties of hand-selected non-hybrid, non-GMO, open-pollinated heirloom vegetable seeds. With up to a 10-year shelf life, these seeds will be the ultimate tool in your preparedness kit. All 39 varieties have been hand-selected and packaged in their own mylar foil bag, and each kit contains more than 4,500 Heirloom Seeds. Once your plants have produced vegetables, you can save the seeds for future use. Allow the vegetables to mature, and then harvest the seeds. Store the seeds in a cool, dry place until you're ready to plant them again. Growing your vegetable seeds is a rewarding experience that can help you become more self-sufficient and reduce your ecological footprint.
Adding fruit to your emergency food storage is another essential step in creating a well-rounded and nutritious food supply. Fruits are an excellent source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber and can help keep your immune system strong during stress. Freeze-dried fruit tastes terrific alone but also pairs perfectly with our breakfast meals. You can add it to smoothies, top off your yogurt parfait, or use fruit for baking. Our 120 Serving Freeze Dried Fruit Bucket is perfect for any food supply. Get great-tasting fruits with options like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, and apples. By rounding out your emergency food supply with different nutritious and shelf-stable foods, you can help ensure that you and your family have the resources to stay healthy and well-fed during an emergency.
