When it comes to my own preps, food ranks right up there at the top of the list. Those that know me find this hilarious because they think I never eat. The truth is that yes, of course, I eat, and eat well. In my home, you will find foods that are healthy – meaning lots of fruits and veggies – as well as foods that are both easy to prepare and tasty.
I hope you caught the tasty part of the food equation because survival or not, if something does not taste good, I will typically pass it up. In the interest of not going hungry following a disaster, I have stocked away a significant supply of tasty food products including a variety of condiments to kick them up a notch. Bulk foods, packaged items, freeze dried tins, and canned goods all make up a part of my survival food pantry.
The one item that is missing from my personal survival food panty is a variety of canned meats. Oh how I envy those of you that have well stocked pantries with home canned chicken, pork and beef. Perhaps someday I will have the time to start canning on my own but for now I am going to have to rely upon commercially canned meats.
Survival Cave Canned Meats from LPC Survival
A few weeks back, Jeff from LPC Survival approached me about another giveaway. You know me and giveaways – how could I say no? When it came time to select the just-right giveaway product, I suggested food. Yes, another free food giveaway for Backdoor Survival readers. More about the giveaway in a moment; first I want to tell you about the product: Survival Cave Canned Meats.
Survival Cave canned meats are 100% meat – not broth, water or filler. The stated shelf life 12-15 years but the reality is, who really knows. I always rotate my canned goods so chances are they will not last 15 years anyway. In addition, I actually use my food storage for everyday meal preparation. There is no waste and a trip to town is 20 miles. Who needs that?
