A friend of mine intimated today that his food storage plan was principally MRE (meals ready-to-eat), like they use in the military. He noted that the nutritional shelf life was essentially eternal, though I wonder if they would outlast a Twinkie. He commented that the meat loaf meal was particularly yummy.
I hadn’t considered these as an option. While I think they would be too expensive to be the foundation of a year-long storage plan, they might be a beneficial part (several weeks worth, perhaps). They are low effort to prepare and provide wide variety, two shortcomings of any plan I’ve considered. Another item to consider.
