There are two major problems with most people’s food stockpiles: too many carbs and too much sodium. The reason this happens is because foods with lots of carbs (like rice and pasta) and foods with lots of sodium (like canned beans and veggies) are usually very cheap and last a long time.
Eating these foods might be okay for a few days, but if you’re living through a long-term disaster it’s going to take a toll on your health. That’s why it’s important to store lots of dehydrated fruits and veggies. Unfortunately, most of the dehydrated food you’ll find at the store is full of salt, sugar, and other preservatives, so it’s best to get a good dehydrator and do it yourself.
Fortunately, Mom With A Prep put together the ultimate guide to dehydrating food. She compiled well over 100 recipes along with tips and instructions. This is one of those posts you’re going to want to bookmark and refer to again and again.
