Some other simple proteins are canned chicken and turkey. I rarely use them, but always try to keep several cans of those around too, and a few pounds
of dried beans go a long way without a lot of weight. You do need access to water for the beans though.
Water is another essential to store. I use old gallon vinegar jugs. There is less residue and they are stronger than milk jugs. If you are short on
space at least keep some bleach and something to boil water in. It takes eight drops of regular bleach to disinfect a gallon of water. Here's the
I have found bulk boxes of the fruit leather strips, the real fruit kind. They are considerably cheaper if you can find the 48 strip box. We go
through them pretty quick around here in the summer, but they have proven invaluable as a quick pick me up. Individual little packages of almond
butter have also saved me a couple of times, not in an emergency, but just not being able to find safe food. I keep those in my bag tucked right next
to the fruit strips. Between just those two items, I have found I can get myself through just about anything for the day, even when we are active and
moving all day long.
Edit to add: Please don't cave and eat something that will make you sick! Getting sick will only make matters worse especially in an emergency.
Congrats on avoiding the temptation! It's one of my biggest worries, because then my family will be taking care of me instead of me being able to take
care of them.
