There are typically two groups of elderly or disabled individuals. You invested everything correctly and have a lot of money now with very low expense, or you didn’t and have very little income.
If you have a lot of money, stop reading. But what if you don’t have much income and you just want to know the basics to help you go a few days? Well, you came to the right place.
First, evaluate your caloric intake (2000 cal/day). You will need to calculate your needs based on this intake.
Next, your goal will be to get 1-3 days of food based on your needs. Stick with your normal diet when getting this small amount of food. Here are some items you can include in your food preps.
Canned Goods: Use copy canning to slowly build up some food reserves. I have done a post on Copy Canning Methods that you can read to know more.
Dried Foods: Next, for an addition to your canned goods, look into Dried Goods such as:
Dehydrated Foods: For long term storage, Dehydrated Goods give you an advantage. Biggest advantage is that it is easy for you to dehydrate your own stuff. Fruits, Meats, and Vegetables can all be dehydrated.
Freeze Dried Meals: These are good long term foods as well with many years for a shelf life. Problem for the elderly… These have lots of sodium in them. They are good in a pinch and worth keeping a few.
This isn’t for your entire food preps. This is just your first goal that you can work on, a total of about 6000 calories. How you want to achieve this is completely up to you.
Match your food list both at home and in a bug out bag. Now you are 72 hours resilient bugging in or bugging out!
