An essential guide to storing organic foods for survival
04/05/2024 // Zoey Sky // Views

Many non-preppers who want to start storing food for their survival stockpile often wonder how to begin. If you're one of them, keep things simple and start small, so you don't get overwhelmed.

Prepare for the next big one now and stock up on essential survival food supplies, like organic canned food or food buckets with beans and grains. (h/t to

Don't get overwhelmed: Start small

Start with a manageable goal, like preparing one week’s worth of food. Next, try planning for the most likely scenarios in your neighborhood, like a power outage or a blizzard.

To keep the list manageable, only include items that your family likes to eat so nothing goes to waste. You should also avoid buying things that require refrigeration once opened, like mayonnaise.

One week’s worth of food, or about twenty-one full meals, that your family will eat and doesn't require refrigeration is the ideal starting point for a newbie prepper who wants to try food storage.

Because power outages are one of the most common survival scenarios, start thinking of ways you can prepare and store food without power. Consider getting a solar oven or a small gas stove so you can still cook even without electricity.

Alternatively, you can build a fire outdoors so you can cook. (Related: Unlocking the mastery of bucket food storage: Essential for complete preparedness.)

Start a meal plan

Use either a pen and notebook or a computer program like Excel to lay out your meal plan. Create columns to track each day and rows for each meal. You can also include snacks and drinks.

Before SHTF, learn how to meal plan using a system that works for you.

Breakfasts that are easy to prepare include peanut butter, chicken sandwiches, or soup with bread for lunch. Some dinner suggestions include chili, chicken fried rice, pasta with chicken and vegetables, rice and beans, spaghetti, tortellini soup and taco soup.

Quick snacks include nuts, dried fruit and common pantry items like cheese crackers.

For drinks, stock up on one gallon of water per person then add beverages like dry milk, drink powder, coffee, or tea.

Write a grocery list

After you decide on the dishes for your meal plans, check each one and make a grocery list of what you would need for that week’s worth of food. Don't forget to include seasonings for the meals and ingredients for bread.

Keep in mind your individual family members’ food and drink preferences while you plan your meals so you only buy items that everyone won't mind eating a lot of after SHTF.

List the food item you need to stock up on and the minimum amount you have as a goal. You can either buy the amount of a food item you need all at once or spread it across several smaller purchases so you don't have to shell out a lot of money in one go.

Look for sales and discounts

Try not to pay for items at full price. To save more money, check which stores offer promos and sales on items that you need for your stockpile.

It can take you a week or at least one month to buy all items, depending on how many items you buy and if you buy them when there is a sale. Note that most sales usually happen around major holidays.

Health Ranger Select Organic Goji Berries contain no gluten or GMOs and are also extensively lab-tested for glyphosate, heavy metals and microbes.

These premium goji berries are also vegan, non-irradiated and certified organic. The small, red berries are produced by the Lycium barbarum plant, a member of the nightshade (Solanaceae) family.

Rich in nutrients, goji berries have a sweet, tangy flavor that makes them a highly versatile ingredient. Since they taste like cranberries, goji berries can be used in pies, sauces, dips, salsas and soups.

Goji berries take on a nutty flavor when dried. You can boil the berries to make goji berry tea or blend them into shakes and smoothies. You can also sprinkle them like raisins on top of cereal or oatmeal.

Alternatively, you can simply eat raw goji berries straight out of the bag.
