Survival Nutrition: Live longer and healthier

If you don’t have a nice stockpile of rice and lentils by now, you haven’t been listening. You should look into sorting that out as soon as possible.

I’ve posted over the years about how rice and lentils can keep you not only fed but healthy.
You don’t need much more than that really. It’s not only enough, its actually some of the healthiest food you can eat.

This brings me to this video I wanted to share with you folks and why a plant based diet is so important. The health benefits have been proven ad nauseam. Soy bean boy and vegan joke aside, this is a survivalism website. If CVD and some of the most common causes of early death can be fought with a specific diet, then that’s our business too.

Take the time and watch it. Better yet my friend, give that stockpile of rice and lentils a go, think of it as a test run for SHTF. 30 days of rice, lentils and pasta with a good bit of fresh fruits and vegetables. Maybe a tiny tin of tuna if you get bored in the mix.

Thank you for this video and very important topic. I subscribe to the Doctor and he has valid information in the video. Remember hearing him in Boston years ago.
Recommended eating dark color varieties as most nutritious.

Drying is the critical factor in preservation of food products. The removal of moisture helps prevent bacterial activity and spoilage. Salt can be used to accelerate the removal of water and hence its widespread use as a traditional preservative. Modern day methods of water removal include freeze drying which will both remove the water and significantly reduce the weight of the food. Smoking the meat imparts extracts from the smoke (phenols, etc.) that helps to retards the growth of spoilage bacteria. Today preservatives are typically added to retard bacterial growth .
