best-survival-foods

There are a lot of food options at the grocery store… almost to the point of feeling overwhelmed just choosing a box of cereal or a can of soup. There is also a lot of consensus on the standard foods for survival, which I will list below.

Many preppers have put together their own bug out bags (BOBs), which typically includes about 3 days worth of gear/food. But the purpose of building your own small kit is for everyone to have the most crucial items for at least 2-3 days in case of an emergency… any emergency… like a vehicle breaking down in the middles of nowhere, a terrorist attack, or even just simply getting lost in the woods.
