One of the very first purchases we made, The Paranoid Dad and I, was two cases of freeze dried meat. I knew we could grow our own produce and that canned veggies and fruit were cheap, but I was worried about having enough protein in our storage.
It seems everyone has a plan for having a supply of meat for the future. Some intend to do a lot of hunting and fishing. Others are canning beef and chicken like there’s no tomorrow, and a growing number of families are raising chickens and rabbits. I can’t help but wonder, though, what’s wrong with planning on eating vegetarian when the S hits the fan?
People have lived on little or no meat for thousands of years. Yes, most of us eat poultry, fish, and meat, but we’re already stocking up on a lot of the same foods vegetarians eat, such as beans, legumes, rice, etc. Most preppers have gardens or, at least, have plans to garden and grown some of their own produce, and you can buy freeze-dried and dehydrated versions of just about anything that will stand still long enough!
I’m not trying to pick a fight with carnivores! Just wondering why more preppers aren’t making plans to eat mostly or all vegetarian in the future. What about you? Would you go vegetarian or are you honing your hunting skills?
