In the era of survival-ism, people will make a list of what you will need to cover the basics. The list of food is extensive; you don’t have to get all, but knowing what is good for you helps. So, stock up on these things; here’s a rundown of the list.

Wheat is used to make bread, crackers, pancakes, and cereal among other foods. White rice lasts a long time and, with the last two foods, yeast is part of it. You need to sweeten your foods, so get sugar and honey. Baking powder and soda also helps grow the food and keep them fresh. Seek out various oils (not the one for your car) as part of your cooking necessities. In just about every food, there is the need for salt. Knowing that you may not have a fridge, get powdered versions of cocoa, milk, eggs, and butter.

Pasta is another dry food that lasts a long time. Having powdered cheese and tomato sauce helps add flavor to it. Then, there are the canned goods such as tuna, beef, and beans. Ketchup, mayo, and mustard, plus peanut butter and jelly, are also good to carry in your emergency stock. Cinnamon, chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, dried parsley, and onion powder are additives in cooking that can be in small packets. For veggies, dehydrated carrots and celery. Note that Kool-Aid and iced tea come in powdered form also and just needs water. Popcorn on the kettle, not in the bag since there is no microwave. Finally, there is chocolate bars. I think that about does it.
