Just a few thoughts
1- Honey lasts forever and is very nutritious ( plus the bees are reduced in numbers so get it and support your local beekeepers, by USA and Canada
honey please), but I would also get spices chai spices are very healthy, tumeric if your so inclined even better get bees!! I have always wanted too
and you are saving our crops if you do. I think that is worht something too!
2- Salt can be used to cure meats the old fashioned way
3- We import sooo much stuff from China that we don't need to (for example Garlic, what we can't grow our own here ridiculous, it is just China
4- My husband works in the office of a major trucking company and Walmart and other stores are still shipping tons of stuff in North America so the
within Canada/USA stuff will be fine and we have had descent crops this year so we should be fine food wise
5- If you all by way more than you need you will cause a shortage because that's the way these things get started!!
That being said I always keep a large bag of rice, a large bag of flour, a few cases of soup, veggies, etc. because it is cold in Winnipeg over the
winter and it feels safe to have a well stocked cupboard.
The USA and Canada have kept a diversified agricultural base and good thing too, I think we need to get used to shopping for things grown here more
often. If the price of fuel goes up I am sure at some point the price for locally grown should be equal to stuff imported from asia anyway.WHich is
good and bad.
Oh and if your getting beans get corn too, I hear your body absorbs the protein from the beans better when eaten with corn!
