If you’re concerned about surviving an apocalyptic event, you may wish to look into meals ready to eat. Meals ready to eat, or MREs as they’re called, have everything a person needs to survive the day nutritionally speaking.
You can find these available online direct from the manufacturer, or you can find them on online auction sites as well. You can also find them in brick and mortar stores such as camping supply stores or sporting goods stores.
One thing to keep in mind is that if you’re buying the military versions of such foods, you need to be aware that you have no way of knowing how long the item has sat on a shelf.
Items that were surplus from the war over in Iraq or Afghanistan may have sat on the shelves for up to six months or more. That is six months of exposure to toxins and heat that may have affected the quality of these MREs.
It is highly encouraged to buy your MREs from a manufacturer that can show you the expiration dates and how long the item has been on the shelf.
This can save you and your family a lot of money in the long run as you won’t have to worry about having to go to the doctor for potential food poisoning.
Buying MREs is a wise way to invest in your future and that of your family. It’s a great way to prepare for any type of disaster whether it be manmade or from mother nature.
Part of preparation is to make wise decisions regarding where you purchase your foods from and ensuring that they are a high-quality product that will help your family to survive in the event of an emergency. Stock up on your MREs so that you’ll have something to fall back on should there be an emergency.
