The safest, most effective therapies for optimal health!

Survival Food List

This Survival Food List can help you plan intelligently for short or long term emergencies. Events such as power outages, hurricanes and snowstorms increase stress and limit cooking and preparation options. You want nourishment that is optimal for such conditions.

It is smart to be a 'prepper' and have items on hand before needing them. The extra bonus is that all the items here are either great on-the-go healthy snacks or supplements everyone desiring optimal health should take.

Survival Food List Criteria

An excellent survival food list is designed to fulfill the following criteria:

1 - Minimal preparation time and equipment.

2 - Concentrated nutrient value.

3 - Easy to store in limited space.

4 - Sustained keeping quality for long-term storage.

5 - Requires minimal effort and energy expenditure of body to absorb the nutrients.

6 - Includes some items that are enjoyable taste-wise.

7 - Last but definitely not least: a survival food list SHOULD include nutrients that can offer support for emergency conditions. Potassium Iodide for nuclear radioactive exposure is one example.

Survival Food List Items

The selection you choose will, of course, reflect your personal tastes and preferences. Most emergency nutrition items selections are based on lots of beans and grains. If these are your preferred foods, you will find many sources to choose from.

Keep in mind that grains and beans need to be stored properly (totally protected from moisture and excess heat). Dampness will spike mold growth, making these items inedible.

The list below is geared more toward Paleo Diet for emergency situations. HOWEVER, even if you are a vegan, the supplements discussed will go far to ensure much better results in a high-stress situation.

Survival Food List: Proteins

Protein, consisting of a full spectrum of Amino Acids (protein building blocks) is ESSENTIAL. Every process in your body depends on Amino Acids. Neurotransmitters for brain function, ALL enzyme reactions throughout body (digestion is just one of many), hormones, blood, lymph, muscles, organs, joints and bones - all are made of proteins!

1 - Pemmican: dried beef and/or turkey ground fine and mixed with rendered beef fat has long-storage capacity, tastes rich and satisfying and takes up less space than fresh meats because it is very concentrated. It can be eaten as is, easily carried in a backpack, or mixed into a vegetable soup for enhanced nutrition and taste. **Pemmican (with NO raisins, nuts, etc. - just meat and fat), is ALSO a great emergency food for your dog!**

2 - Montiff full-spectrum Amino Acids capsules. These crystalline free-form Amino Acids have several MAJOR advantages as emergency nutrition. 

a) They last for at least 5 years at room temperature.

b) They are a complete protein supplement that supports bodily function, repair and stress management. This is because Amino Acids - protein building blocks - are vital for ALL body tissues and functions.

c) Montiff full-spectrum Amino Acids capsules require NO expenditure of energy for full absorption! This is VERY IMPORTANT - because when your body is stressed as it would be in any emergency - it quickly depletes your protein stores. Even if you consumed 3 T-bone steaks per day, you could not get enough protein to deal with that amount of stress. 

Free-form Amino Acids fill that gap.

NOTE: For those using SSRI's (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) such as Prozac, select All-Basic WITHOUT Tryptophan.

3 - A modest amount of fresh, organic raw nuts such as cashews, almonds and Brazil nuts have a small amount of protein and some good fats. However, nuts have good keeping qualities, especially when salted, and add pleasant taste, texture and variety to your survival food list.

I would NOT depend on nuts as a protein source. MOST nuts have more carbs than protein or fat, and are not easy to digest.

**I would pack them in sea salt or Himalayan salt for longer storage. Salt will keep mold and bacteria down.** Vacuum-packing is also recommended if you have access to it..

Survival Food List: Fats

Fats are an excellent, concentrated source of energy. Particularly if you have embraced a serious Paleo Diet and converted your body to a fat-burning metabolism, you will find yourself with more energy to handle difficulties with an abundance of animal fat such as in pemmican.

1 - Pemmican with its high content of beef fat would be my first choice for a sustainable fat source in emergencies. 

2 - Clarified butter (also known as ghee) has good keeping qualities; it can be made or purchased. Its use also makes vegetables more enjoyable to eat.

3 - Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil

4 - Fresh, organic raw nuts in moderation (described above).

Survival Food List: Carbohydrates

Dried tomatoes drenched with olive oil. Unopened olive oil can be kept approximately a year, maybe more. Dried tomatoes can be kept for 6 months to a year depending on moisture content.

Save moisture packs from your supplements and dry with tomatoes in your food dehydrator, then pack with dried tomatoes for best keeping quality.

Emergency carbohydrate nutrition is optimally obtained from a variety of dried vegetables. Many vegetables lend themselves to drying. Carrots, tomatoes, sweet red peppers (a favorite of mine), celery, onions, etc. Ideally, you would invest in a quality food dehydrator for best results. I like to sprinkle some salt on the cut-up vegetables on the dehydrator tray before sliding it in for drying.

Survival Food List: Supplemental
Vitamins and Minerals

Abundant vitamins and minerals will help you: a) Metabolize Amino Acids  b) Digest your foods  c) Handle stress.  Amino Acids, Vitamins and Minerals are all required for nutritional balance. 

Excellent quality choices include Montiff Vita-Minz Plus and B-Complete.
