Recommendations for your food storage pantry

Recommendations for your food storage pantry

Most fruits and vegetables can be canned, freeze dried, and dehydrated. So, you have a variety of different ways to store fruits and vegetables. It is recommended that fruits and vegetables be a third of what you eat on a daily basis. If you really want to make sure you get all your vitamins and minerals, eat fruits and vegetables.

Beans and Legumes are great for storage. They provide us with a great source of protein and other nutrients. Lentils, black beans, and chick peas all taste great and are easy to store. Beans can be stored after cooking in cans, so they are ready to eat.

If you don’t want to cook them beforehand, you can place them in 5 gallon buckets lined with food grade plastic bags to keep the oxygen out and have the beans last longer.

Whole Grains can be stored the same as beans, with the exception of some whole grains with a higher fat composition that usually tend to go bad a little faster. White rice, wheat, and quinoa will easily last over a year under normal conditions. If placed in food grade bucket with a plastic lining to keep oxygen out, they will last years.

Finally I would recommend fish and poultry, which can be preserved by drying in the sun, freeze drying, and canning. Fish and poultry such as Alaskan wild salmon, sardines, tuna, and chicken will give you a steady and familiar diet of protein that is very important to keep you healthy and eating balanced.
