Should We Be Concerned With Long Term Food Storage?

Lately, my family and I have been talking about our needs for long term storage? While it is critical to source your food from places you know and trust, what you do with that food is something that we have not explored enough.

So I am writing this to start the conversation about how to store our food in case of a natural disaster or other emergency situation.

Now we don’t consider ourselves to preppers or even paranoid about the likely hood of anything happening that would require us to use our stored food.

But being a boyscout, my motto is always be prepared (wait does that make me a prepper – lol)!

So we did our research and after watching a ton of videos and reading various reviews all over the Internet, we decided to invest in Wise Company long term food storage kits.

These plastic bins come loaded with meals that only require warm or boiling water and can last literally for years in our cool basement.

And if you are wondering how the food tastes, I have to say I rather enjoy it. It’s made from very high quality ingredients and you can tell they didn’t skim on flavor. My wife doesn’t enjoy them as much as I do, but I actually would eat them a lot more, but my wife insists we save them.

I can tell you this, if it was a disaster or emergency situation – you would have no trouble at all staying full and satisfied if these were your only source of food.

What Kind Of Nutrition Is Optimal For Men In Their 40s

I was recently emailed from a friend what he should be doing to get back in shape after 40. Being a 40 year old guy myself, this question is pretty important to me.

So let’s get started.

1. You want to avoid sugary food. Sugar is just empty calories.

2. Do not, I mean ever, eat fast food. It is just bad for you.

3. Do not snack after 8pm. After 8, drink water only.

4. Drink coffee and green tea in the morning.

5. Eat LOT’s of vegetables. Seriously. They fill you up and are great for you, but have almost no calories.

6. Try to exercise in some form every day. Do anything, just do something.

That’s it. Try it.

Stay healthy, eat right, exercise and I will talk to you soon.
