to eat your vegetables and nothing could be more important
during crisis. Vegtables will provide your family with antioxidants,

canned, dehydrated and freeze dried. These are the survival foods
with a long shelf life, and in that order. Canned foods will last 2-3
years, dehydrated foods 10-20 years and freeze dried foods 25-30
years. Be sure to read our
prepper's pantry list and consider these

Meal planning is a survival skill! As the family dietitian your goal
is to ensure the emergency meals you prepare will have the
essential nutrients and fiber to sustain you for a long term

It's time to add more vegetables to your prepper's pantry.

  • Canned vegetables. You'll find canned vegetables at
    significant savings at the dollar stores. Another good way to
    stock up on canned veggies is at Costco or when they go on
    sale at your favorite grocery store. Remember to rotate your
    vegetables and only store what you eat. Look for canned
    tomato paste and stewed tomatoes if you want Italian food

  • Dehydrated vegetables. Dehydrated vegetables have a long
    shelf life, though not as long as freeze dried vegetables.

    dried vegetable soup mix that yields 96 cups of soup when
    reconstituted. Dehydrated vegetables maintain their high
    nutritive value with less nutrients lost.

    the answer to your long term food storage needs. Freeze
    dried vegetables have up to a 25-30 year shelf life. One of
    the best kinds of freeze dried veggies to store is broccoli
    florets because they are ideal for adding to your pasta
