Going Easy on the Food

Have you really looked at how much you eat every day ?

No, I'm not talking about going on a diet & calorie counting..just adjusting the intake of food with what your body needs to maintain good health whether you are doing manual work or a sedentary job.

Since nobody knows the duration of any food shortages,surely it makes sense to try to establish over the next six months a prudent rate of food consumption .That way,your body gets time to adjust,food supplies will last longer & food rationing,if it arises will not come as such a shock to the system.

Snacking is out !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PS.Who wants to have a body that looks like a bunch of ferrets fighting in a sack? Not me!

Physically, I think we might be working harder and longer after the turn of the new year, so this means more calories to consume. Plus with the added stress in our lives, a snack now and then might not be a bad idea, don't you think??

Prunes have a very long shelf life as well as popcorn. These make excellent snacks for storage.

If you're really hungry, better eat or your brain will go out. That will lead to bad judgment. On the other hand, yes, we could cut down a tiny bit.

Treats are a major part of our storage program. Because of the psychological benefits, as well as enhanced energy boosts. Jello, cake mixes, pie fillings, etc. will all make us feel civilized when there are problems. When I used to climb mountains (and did ski mountaineering), food was a major morale builder. It's also true on long ocean voyages (the cook is an extremely important member of a long distance ocean racing crew, for example!).
