Ark Prep 101 - Long Term Food Storage!

Long Term Food Storage
This is the section that usually makes people
a little nervous.
But not you . . . If you are using Rice or Pasta
in any of your meals,
you're ALREADY using
Long-Term Food Storage is easy to incorporate into
your everyday meals.
Because - You already do it!
Most people are under the impression that
Long-Term Food Storage is just that . . .
Food Purchased and Stored LONG TERM!
(Or at least until you throw it away after a few years because
your sick of moving it or storing it!)
The List of Basics we posted in last weeks Ark Prep 101

You may want to get a 3-Ring Binder to keep

Long-Term Food Storage can also be purchased
in Pre-Packaged Meals.

I would recommend you try the meals individually
before you invest in a year's worth.
This investment can cost thousands of dollars,
so make sure you're family will eat it first!
Freeze Dried Fruits and Vegetables
are a great addition to the Long-Term Basics.
These items can be expensive as well,
but would be a great addtion to the basic items
you have stored.
They even have freeze dried meats and cheese!
Wowie . . . that's impressive.
You can make anything taste better with CHEESE.
