Be Well Prepared and Well Fed!

With all the uncertainty in the world today, there is peace in preparing. In an emergency, you don't want to depend on a grocery store or government agency to feed your family. Storing food assures your family's self-sufficiency year-round and benefits your budget when you plan correctly.

This in-depth, nuts-and-bolts guide to storing food teaches you a variety of food storage methods that you can customize to meet your family's unique circumstances including family size, tastes, ages, health concerns, income, and living conditions. This is not a generic manual on stocking dehydrated meals that have ten-year shelf lives. It's the guide to storing foods your family loves so you can eat well no matter what challenges life throws at you.

Inside you'll find:

  • Food-storage options for 72-hour emergency kits, short-term emergencies and long-term survival.
  • Food-storage planning methods that incorporate the foods and meals your family loves.
  • Tips for how to maintain balance and variety in your food storage.
  • Budget-friendly ways to purchase food for storage.
  • Easy and practical ideas for cooking with food in storage so nothing expires or goes to waste.
  • Organization and storage methods for easy food store maintenance.
  • Water storage and purification methods.
  • Canning, freezing and dehydrating methods to preserve food you produce at home.
Storing food gives you the freedom to stretch your income in tight-budget months, pack quick meals for short-notice trips, and create healthy meals without constantly going to the grocery store. Plus your stored food is available if you do experience an emergency power outage, natural disaster, long-term illness or job loss. Let this guide help you start building your self-sufficiency and food storage today.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you're a newbie, you need this book. 9 May 2014
By Julie S. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Just getting started building a pantry? This is the book for you! The author, Angela Paskett has created a well written, comprehensive guide that answers every question you could possibly think of regarding food storage. There's advice on what types of food you should pack in an emergency kit, how to figure out how much to store in your pantry for both long and short term emergencies, and recommendations for the best places to store it. The book includes information on water storage, step-by-step instructions for canning, dehydrating tips, packing suggestions and I loved the section on sustainable food storage which covers everything from gardening to raising animals to hunting and fishing.
I can’t stress it enough. This is a must have book for food storage beginners. It will become your go-to reference over and over again. Personally, I’m such a fan of Angela’s book that I’ve ordered a few more to give out to friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars I recommend this book! 9 May 2014
By Bernie C. - Published on
I like the way the book is organized, with a separate chapter covering food needs for 72 hours, short term emergencies (two weeks to three months) and long term emergencies (three months or longer). There are more sections dealing with water storage, preserving, packing dry foods for long term, maintaining balance, sustainable food storage, organizing and using your food storage. In short, this book covers everything the reader to know about storing food.

I found a lot of ideas on how I can improve my own food storage plan. The author gives practical steps that anyone can implement right away. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must-have for any family interested in self-sufficiency and preparedness! 9 May 2014
By momwithaprep - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This isn't a book I'd simply put on my to-be-borrowed-from-the-library list. After reading Angela's book on Food Storage, I feel empowered to take my food storage up a notch. It's a must-have for any beginning preparedness-minded or self-sufficiency-seeking family looking to increase their food stores for their families.

Written with the authority of someone who has actually been doing this their entire lives, it's believable, not just a rehash of things someone threw together from the 'net.

I highly recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Getting Started With Food Storage? This is the Book For You!!! 10 May 2014
By Jamie S. - Published on
This book has been one of the most thorough and well-organized food storage books I've ever read. I will definitely be keeping it in a safe place to refer to often. It answered nearly every question that I had, and even more I hadn't considered.

I really appreciate all the charts, worksheets, and lists throughout the book that are available to print. She didn't leave out a single detail. Anyone that is wanting to get started with food storage, or just get some new and fresh ideas - this book will not disappoint! I will definitely be ordering more of these for gifts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for anyone interested in food storage! 9 May 2014
By Lesslie B - Published on
This is a fabulous book! I read it cover to cover in less than a week, but if I didn't have a little one I probably would have finished it in one day! So much useful information that can apply to you whether you're new to food storage or have been building your stockpile for several years. Angela made this book so easy to ready, yet not oversimplified or dumbed down. Perfect balance! I loved it :)
