As food supply chains collapse at least temporarily? consider adopting some food habits of 1st Americans whose diet often consisted of dried fruits,
nuts, seeds, carrying food with them when migrating and staying in one place.
For years, I have a couple dozen wide mouth Mason jars on my sink with awakened almonds and awakened sunflower seeds (easier to digest that way,
filberts, Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, coconut strips, hemp hearts, cashews, figs, dates, candied or cocoa dusted ginger cubes, prunes, apricots,
mangoes, cherries, peaches. I freeze them for a couple days every few months to prevent bugs. I buy in bulk at places like HummingbirdWholesale DOT
com Eugene, OR. Most organic. I used to keep jars in cabinets but would sometimes forget them so I keep them on counter now. Also have about 5 kinds
of nut and seed butters. Mixing nuts and seeds in Osterizer make your own butters and add healthy hemp oil-that should be kept in frig-or other oils
if nut/seed butter gets hard.
I also put potato chips, corn and sesame rice crackers, comfort foods in jars so that rodents not attracted to them.
Knowing that dried fruit is more sugary and sometimes hard to chew, I can recall Mom's trick of soaking in water overnight also can be use in fruit
soups or smoothies. Have not tried soup idea, but as teeth age I may.
When working in SF near Chinatown I saw numerous fish dried, some hanging on strings. Meat and fish can be dried also, since I a vegetarian, I bring
this up only for others to consider. Have not eaten fish, chicken, meat since 1976 after fasting. Used to love applewood smoked salmon
