Grocery list

I figured we might as well start a grocery list. There is nothing worse when preparing something to eat than having all but one of the ingredients.
There are foods listed all over the survival forums but i thought it would be nice to have them all in one place.

We need two lists, one for home and one for your B.O.B.

I probably have more food in my B.O.B. Than most people,but I'm not taking any chances.

For the BOB
Dry ingredients for bread mixed together.
Soup mix: rice, beans, dried tomatos ect.
2 foil packages of salmon
package of wheat crackers.
concentrated lemon juice
sea salt
beef and chicken jerky
bean and lentils mix
powdered ranch dressing
dehydrated fruits and veggies
powdered milk
trail mix.
Most of this stuff is to help make foods found in the wild more palatable.

For home.
Salt and sea salt
rice lentils
powdered milk

Help me out people.

I don't have much of a clue but S&F for you as I am trying to pull this together for myself.

Hopefully others will fill in the blanks.

I admit that my BOB has some pretty meager rations. I have trailmix and a canteen for water. I'd rather have the space for gear that I can use to catch or prepare food that I obtain rather than trying to set up shop out in the wilderness.

Home preparations are another matter and your choice of food is limited only by your amount of space to store it.

I would say:

Peanut butter. (plus you can attract bugs(for fishing) and animals with it.)
Whole cloves.(it's an antiseptic as well, and helps to settle the stomach)
Green Tea (you would be surprised how much it helps)

Now beyond foods as it were:
personally I always have vitamins
Vitamin C(with bioflavonoids) make sure that there is no additives
A good multi-vitamin

Antioxidants or b-complex or Stress tabs

You might consider sprouting as an option as well.
It's a great way to bring highly dense food energy and vitamins.
They sprout a few days.
I see you have barley.
What can I sprout ?

Chocolate / good source of energy/fat and good for the soul
Canned meats like tuna, ham, chicken and beef even spam is better than bugs...

My big thing is how long we should prepare for? I mean do we just fill a bag full for a few days or do we need weeks, months or years worth of stuff?

Don't forget stuff for purifying water. Without clean, bacteria free water you cannot survive...
It is potasium permanganate . I have posted a thread on survival forum about it, but I don't know how to link it to this thread.

Anyway this stuff is in my back pack all the time. Good disinfecting any water from bacteria.

i may be repeating something found in another on the Gulf Coast and having been thru the aftermath of Hurricane Rita a few years HOME grocery list is simple...4 cases LARGE cases of MREs complete with their heating packs, a Remington Nylon 66 .22 rifle with 1000 rounds, and water filtration eqipment. This should last me and the daughter for least long enuff to get seeds in the ground. Now as for the BoB? tent sleeping bags water filters tools paracord matches lighters fishing line hooks heavy blade hatchet 1st aid kit and 14 MREs each heavy but most is in my pack...heck shes only 13

I agree that it is a good idea to keep MREs in home storage. However I also store a good portion of my own dehydrated foods at home as well. Veggies, meats, fruits..the whole deal.

As for my BOB it is mainly carbs and a few proteins. I carry a few 3400 calorie survival bars as well as trail mix, jerky, dehydrated fruits, raisins, and just a few of the main rations from MREs.

Water is a given. For my BOB I carry my 120oz camelbak bladder and 2 canteens.

My BOB is enough to sustain me for a few weeks(with resupplies of course) until I can get to my "BOP" as I call it. (bail out palace, final resupply point in which I have loads of equipment/food/water)

just my opinion , but : " rations in your BOB should be edible and palatable raw // cold "

for clarification - I define " BOB " as : " the essential for a safe trasisition of 4 ~ 6 days "

anything that does require cooking - not just heating up - should be QUICK .

Tons of philosophies about BoB/GHB foods - I'll leave that one to the individual. As for home storage/preps you may be interested in what the LDS preparedness manual lists (I'm not affiliated) and you may need to filter the religious text now and then but just focus on the preparedness content and you may find value. Was a decent reference for possible prioritize/ organize the longer term buys, especially if you don't know where to start.... FWIW
