Presumably, that’s because grains are the foundation of the food pyramid, and so essential to healthy nutrition in any situation. The catch is that they aren’t the most easy food staple, and most food storage is tailored ultimately toward teotwawki situations, which generally includes loss of electrical, and gas utilities. Okay, perhaps you’ll survive boiled rice cooked over an open fire day-in, day-out. many folks in Asia do.

Sure, there are hand-powered wheat grinders that work great, and you’ll combine dough by hand also. If you only have food storage and no hand-powered machinery to process food staples, the most savvy approach is also to invest in a solar-powered generator and work toward collecting equipment over a extended term. That manner if something were to happen tomorrow, you’ll get by on the kitchen appliances you already have on hand. And in the meanwhile it’d come in handy on camping journeys and outside events.
Rocket Stove, Sans Rocket
The good factor regarding junk is that it provides raw materials for building impromptu resources like rocket stoves, or wood-fire ovens. A neatly designed stack of bricks, fragment blocks, or rocks may be created into a rocket stove that will focus heat from a relatively little fireplace well enough to cook in giant pots. You’ll use stove like these to boil water for purification or reconstituting freeze-dried foods, or cook entire meals with otherwise typical supplies. The safer approach however, would be to keep the cheap, rudimentary supplies handy and not rely on found materials in the aftermath of a catastrophe. That means you’ll practice setting it up and using it in advance.
Food storage, and catastrophe preparations usually encompass a fairly complex range of staples, tools, containers, equipment, and space. It can be plenty to keep track of …
