Ask 10 Preppers their food storage plans (how rude….) and you will get 11 answers.

Well, today I am going to talk about my Cheap Food Storage Plan and why it is best for my family’s situation.

- Food allergies
- Low water/pre-cooked

Here is the basal metabolic calculator as mentioned in the podcast:
You can find several articles on my www.tngun.com website discussing how to prepare the foods mentioned for long-term storage – just use the search function, or click the food and water link under “Categories”.
