With such a small percentage of our population engaged in farming, any interruption in the supply of food would cause markets to empty within hours and people would be unable to acquire even the most basic foods. With little storage space and even less extra cash to purchase extra food, what foods can we store? Rita will teach you how to use the seven "emergency" foods - Grains, Legumes, Sprouting Seeds, Oil, Powdered Milk (or alternate sources of calcium and protein), Honey, and Salt - to prepare appetizing meals in normal times in preparation for a survival diet. She presents creative ways to serve down-to-earth meals, demonstrating the tremendous versatility of these simple foods. With her suggestions, you can have your own well-stocked pantry... ready for any emergency, whether you are faced with a minor or major disaster.
