Almost all people have heard, “I am not eating that again.” Variety is an important factor, especially if you are living off your food storage for an extended period of time. Food storage is broken down into 9 main groups and grains, especially wheat, are the most stored food item. You need to realize that you need to go beyond the basics of food storage and include items that will bring variety into your meals. After eating 3 main breakfasts, lunches, and dinners your family will be facing boredom from food and will be less likely to want to eat again if it will be the same old thing.
That is why today we will be talking about variety of your food storage. Wheat is the most stored of the grains as it can be stored for indefinite lengths of time. They have found wheat stored with the pharaohs that was still edible. Wheat is an excellent grain but of all you store is wheat you will get burned out from it and will not want to cook or eat it after a while.
Getting tired of eating the same foods is called “Appetite Fatigue” and can lead to food storage failure. By introducing new foods into your daily meals, it can help your family use your food storage. You may even find a new recipe that your family loves. That is why we say to incorporate your food storage into your daily meals as it will keep your food storage from going to waste and introduce your family to new and various recipes that will keep them from appetite fatigue. The main focus of this is to store foods that your family loves to eat and make sure you store a variety of different foods to eliminate appetite fatigue.
Going beyond the basics also means learning how to cook from scratch. If all you have is your food storage to cook with you will need to know how to bake bread, cakes, and a variety of other food items. If you have never baked a loaf of bread before it is not as hard as you might think, give it a try.
Items that you should have in your food storage for cooking are yeast, oils, powdered milk, powdered eggs, baking soda, baking powder. Without these items you can not cook the simplest and basic recipes.
