Most survivalists work hard to keep an impressive amount of stored food for consumption during survival situations like after a disaster or war. The food that is usually stored often comprises of dried meat, preserved vegetables and canned meals (with a 25-year shelf life), packed corn, wheat and rice (with a 10-year shelf life), as well as canned goods (with five-year shelf life).
Although it is an excellent idea to stockpile these kinds of food, the primary goal should be to store up a sustainable amount of fresh food that encompasses all the required properties (carbohydrates, calories, fat, fiber, vitamins and protein at appropriate levels).
Since protein is essential for a survival situation, most people think hunting for what they need regarding protein sources should be fairly easy as there are a host of animals to use for food including domesticated animals, hunting, and fishing. However, these options may not be available for a number of reasons. Some people, on the other hand, may not be able to kill animals for food. So if that is the case what alternative protein sources can they look to?
Here we will focus on a sustainable stockpile of alternative protein-based foods for survival periods. There are a host of options for survivalists to choose from when it comes to storing up protein sources other than meat based foods. Some of these alternative sources of protein (mainly plant based) include nuts, seeds, and fruits. These are highly protein based. See some of them below.
