After The Apocalypse Occurs, What Are We Going To Eat?
Among the number of reasons the world will end are not far from considering scenarios like Asteroid impact, Chemical warfare, Environmental disaster, Nuclear fallout, Weather catastrophe, Zombies, etc. Still in all of these, our daily question is- What shall we eat?
This dried meat has an everlasting potentially. Serving as a perfect survival snack once heated dry, mixed with fat, and made into edible cakes, it has been found to be useful in this end-of-the-world hellscape as it kept alive the travelers on the Oregon Trail crossing over 2,000 miles.
Preservatives become a companion when it comes to apocalypse. This staple lasts long when packed with protein and fat. When foraging for food, avoid the natural stuff as it is less preserved. It’s a readily available item in almost every cupboard.
Verily available everywhere, Ramen noodles last 10 years in stock. Survive this end world time stocking up on them.
With its indefinite lasting quality, you can get a jar of honey from an ancient tomb and consume instantly. Though, it is an altogether unlikely situation.
Dandelions weeds will sustain you when the world ends. They will always survive the worst conditions.
Fish is such perfect food solution in any apocalyptic scenarios that may destroy land food supplies. Just have to think about not over-fishing, and learning to use nets and traps. The less time and energy expended on food gathering, the better.
Get to the military base nearest to you, NASA installation, or submarine, (When the world ends) to raid their food storage. Their MREs are designed to be filling, nutritious, and eaten at any time and place. Get your hands on as many of this perfect apocalypse food as possible.
Once our food is no more, nutritional powder supplements such as soylent will begin to look nice. Definitely, one day.
If you are fortunate enough to survive the apocalyptic scenarios, you had better develop a taste for mushrooms. Fungus grows neither with light nor cultivation, so prepare to feast on it whenever chanced.
With several parts of the globe already eating bugs, Americans are still behind on this culinary trend. You’d better get with it in the apocalypse. Such good protein that are going to outlive all human soon or latter, you’ll barely thin the herd if you snack on bug whenever possible.
The Donner party boiled down their boots and ate the tough leather, before beginning to feed on each other. It has some nutritional values as an animal hide, and here we’re talking apocalypse. Don’t you think boiling your favorite jacket is better than hacking off your friend Bob’s leg for food?
Bugs are everywhere. Even after peeling enough bark to feed on, you will find them there. Bark makes an excellent tea.
Very good for fish, worms can literally live under the rocks. If you get hungry enough you will be forced to start turning them over now/later.
In a real apocalypse, canned goods are amazing because they last long, are resilient, and are easy to carry. Rick’s first meal in post-apocalypse “The Walking Dead” came from a can.
Seeds come from many plants. Since you probably won’t stay in one place for long to see something grow, eat seeds. They’re nutritious.
At any survival situation, always look for and think about water. In apocalypse scenario, feeding is not the key priority, as much as there is always a friend’s leg to live on in desperate times. Search for water, stay near one, and you have a better chance of survival through water.
