Food Storage - A difference source


My wife and I decided that we were going to be proactive and really begin to stock up on food stuff this year....then I got a job in Afghanistan. I was the one who did all the shopping, cleaning, and taking care of the family preps. So, since I was away, and the wife doesn't like to shop...(Yea, I know...I know) we decided to have our emergency food delivered by Costco. We signed up for the system...just in case.

This is their ad from their website:

"Nowhere else can you get the total convenience, total value, and total weight loss results that you get from NutriSystem. You get a plan that works—because you’re eating often throughout the day, and you’re not giving up the kinds of food you love…so you never feel deprived.

Convenient meals delivered right to your door, and prepare in minutes
Meals are perfectly portioned for weight loss™ so you never overdo it
Healthy program with foods full of “good carbs” Heart-healthy and low in fat
No counting calories or carbs, and no meetings or weigh-ins
Food will ship from NutriSystem to your door within 4-10 business days of redeeming on NutriSystem.com/redeemnow via UPS and Fed Ex "

Most of the food is really good... better variety than MRE's and a little cheaper too. The ONLY down fall to the whole system is the GAS!

OMG...there is a reason why all experienced preppers advise to eat what you store and store what you eat. My body is SO not used to this type of food and the experience is unique to say the least. If you choose this option, store extra toilet paper and GAS X...trust me on this one.

More to come from Prepare to Survive in California!

You know I have thought about using the Nutrisystem and other things like it as storage. Good to know that it works. Does it have to be frozen?

Good idea about the Nutri System meals.

I have had them, some are good, some not so good. :D They can be a little pricey though.

Matt, no they do not require freezing or refrigeration.

One more thing, I just wanted to add. William, you are doing an awesome job with your posts. Keep up the good work. :D

This is so funny! You're the second person I know who has stocked up on Nutri-System food as part of their food storage. My big food storage splurge has been freeze dried, but I'm willing to keep an open mind re: Nutri-System!

This idea had never even crossed my mind. Thanks for the tip!

Might want to try making Kefir water with water Kefir grains. Just do an E-bay search for them. They do a great deal of work towards balancing gut flora....
