72 Hour Emergency Kit — #2 Food
Stress makes us eat more – up to double. Don’t under estimate food in your kit, and keep it light.
Tools: A P38 can opener or easy-open containers. Cooking materials (high tech lessens weight).
Resources: Use high protein energy foods such as Jerky, canned tuna, MRE meals, whole grain foods, dehydrated, powered, or freeze dried items like drinks, condiments, fruits, and even Mentos or gum.
Know How: Anything will cook if you can put it in a 1 qt. wide-mouth Thermos bottle and add boiling water. Even raw foods will cook overnight. Easier still, use the 4 ” square chemical heat pads (add 2 tbs. water) that cook MREs in flameless fashion. Heat tabs or dirt stoves using Jet-A kerosene are light cooking apparatus. Otherwise, plan to eat everything cold, unless the container can warm under your arm.
Emergencies need high powered food and a lot of it. Pack good stuff that is easy to make editable.
