wheat "only" 3 of 3


WHEAT “ONLY” 3

*
There is an article Saturday, but don't get too worked up as it is a book review and we all know how unexcited you all are usually with those.
*
The movie "Temors 5" is out both at Redbox and Netflix.  Reviews at Amazon mostly claim it better than the other sequels.
*
You have your calories, five years worth for $500, plus container cost, would be my recommended minimum because in the great scheme of things two weeks wages are no big deal now but several years of base calories will be very important later.  You have your fat, as many containers as you can afford to buy and have places to store ( replace every five years.  I would think a dollar every two weeks set aside would do nicely to replenish ).  Now you need your protein.  Beans are no longer cheap, at a buck a pound and all the fault of those pricks from California that let every swinging dingus that wished move into areas competing with agriculture irrigation so when things got a little dry we no longer had cheap produce.  Which means that all you can afford is about a quarter pound a day to supplement your grain ( the combo legume and grain advocated by Diet For A Small Planet ) for a complete amino acid delivery system.  Not that this will satisfy your meat graving.  It will not.  Some anthropologists claim that one of the primary drivers behind the extreme violence in the Amazon by those Yamo-whatever tribe dudes stems from the lack of meat in their diet due to environmental conditions, leading to territorial conflict ( of course, that might be false, as others claim it is more about lack of females, due to the self reinforcing feedback loop of selecting males for military dominance.  But even if the meat craving theory is false, we all know how our body desires it, on par with sex and salt ).

*

I would recommend stockpiling Spam.  Just like shortening, it is fake food bordering on licking the sweaty testicles of your boss in taste and of a suspected origin ( vat meat?  ).  But the generic can is $1.29 at Kroger and you can’t beat that deal with a sharp stick.  Get as much beans as you can, then start supplementing with generic Spam ( beans have twice the calories by weight.  Perhaps three times the calories price wise.  They won’t satisfy your meat craving even if they give the body the bare amino acid it needs, but CALORIES COME FIRST ).  You are already covered for vitamins, as I recently wrote about ( $35 gives you five years of a multi-vitamin if taken every other day, supplemented daily with wheat sprouts for the unknown but needed vitamins but more importantly the needed fresh food enzymes ).  Wheat for a calories base.  Shortening for fat.  Beans and a limited amount of Spam for protein.  Wheat for fresh veggies and vitamin pills for any missing nutrients ( I assume you have iodized salt.  The water softener salt, sodium chloride [NOT potassium chloride], is your bulk salt which is not iodized.  That will cure your meat and provide trade salt, but have a large stash of iodized salt to keep you healthy, especially if you lack access to salt water fish ). 

*

Wheat, a pound a day for five years ( 400 pounds per year to give you some for sprouts ) $500.  Twenty-five cans of shortening, about $100.  Beans, a quarter pound a day for five years, $500.  One hundred cans of Spam, a paltry amount only giving you one can a week for two years, should be no more than $150.  And with the vitamins, round it out to $1300.  I would imagine about $400 for containers, if that.  $2k is what most of you spend on your semi-auto fetish after magazines.  So is several hundred less than that too much to ask for five years of a complete diet of 1900+ calories a day?

    I WOULD RATHER WATCH PAINT DRY THAN READ ANOTHER BOOK REVIEW

    1. I am as a god amongst men! See how I did that? Consideration for those who hate the reviews, I made it an extra article, out of their way if they chose to ignore it. You are welcome.

      Giant worms attack! Mostly a survivalist classic due to the guy in the prepper compound battling them, I think. Burt Gummer? Something like that. He shows up in all the sequels. The first was of course the best, with Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, great dialog, funny. The rest were, well, sequels.

  3. Potted meat is even more generic than spam, but cheaper. I love it with crackers. Can't wait for the book review, gives me something to do Saturday.

    1. It does seem like it should be more gross, but I agree. Tastes pretty good for what it is.

  4. “Beans are no longer cheap, at a buck a pound and all the fault of those pricks from California that let every swinging dingus that wished move into areas competing with agriculture irrigation so when things got a little dry we no longer had cheap produce.”

    It's been my understanding James, that California has produced virtually no new reservoirs since the 70's. A ridiculously high percentage of rain water flows out to the Bay wasted each winter. And since then, CA has increased its population considerably. Of course it's all blamed on “Gore warming” all the while ignoring the water demand from the increase in population, and the fact that most of CA has always been a drought ridden desert.

    1. I could be wrong, hazy book memories here, but I think when the federal money stopped the building stopped. Regardless of need. Greedy whores, Cali politicians.

    If you can stomach them James (I can) sardines are a heck of a lot better for you than spam. Even at places like safeway, they can usually be found at around a $1.00 a can. The can is smaller than a spam can, but you can probably get them for half that price at places like costco.

    1. I rather like a sardine on crackers, and they would be a nice change of pace with a wheat product. Yet, fish never "sticks to my ribs". Never fills me up like land roving flesh. I should do a penny per calories comparison with the two products.

  6. Consider trying Bacon SPAM. I've found it much more palatable than regular SPAM.

  7. There's turkey spam as well. Not sure if I should feel better about eating it, but for some reason I do?

    1. The problem with Spam is the price. Cheaper to buy fresh on sale and can it yourself. Generic Spam is half the price.

      Delete
    2. The no name spam is probably the easiest way to go James. I only mentioned the sardines because they are a lot healthier of a substitute, containing far less mercury and other contaminants found in other fish. But if this is of no concern, then go for the generic spam.

    3. We went shopping today. Sardines, 100 calories for $1. Generic Spam 600 calories for $1.50

    4. That's what I paid for sardines at safeway James. But I'll bet that you could get them for half that at places like costco? But you raise a good point as far as the fat content goes, so the spam beats them in that regard. But man, that stuff just has to be one of the unhealthiest things that you can put in your body? And this is not coming from a guy that's a health food nut :) I guess in a post collapse scenario where the average life expectancy mirrors that of the 19th century, it's of little consequence.

    5. I don't know how unhealthy Spam is, but it sure tastes like refried turd. I image if it tastes bad, it has to be good for you :)
      Shortening and Spam, even if very unhealthy, are in such small portions compared to wheat, I'd image it is of very little consequence. Like eating at McCrappy's once a month. And certainly less unhealthy than not enough protein or fat.

  8. I find SPAM to be very salty. If you have issues with salt intake it's not the thing for you. But salt helps fat to keep.

    TREET costs a lot less than SPAM but has the same salt problems.

    One thing I've done is make my own jerky. Ham is relatively easy to make into jerky since it's already salt cured. Beef, you have to soak it in vinegar brine for a day. (already cut up). Then put it on trays in your oven at 160 for a day or two. Best done in the fall/winter because then you're not heating an already hot house. Homemade jerky should probably still be kept in the fridge, or maybe you can vacuum seal it. I have some go moldy and had to chuck it.

    A solar dehydrator is good if you live in a hot sunny area (or you can use your car's dashboard with a tray on it)

    You can do the same kind of thing with hamburger: cook out the fat first as best you can and dry it in cooked crumbles.

    The fat can be used in pemmican or stored in jars. I've noticed bacon grease doesn't go rancid as fast as grease that didn't have salt in it. Same with salted butter vs. sweet cream butter. I'll keep a clean empty cat food can full of bacon grease with a spoon in it next to the stove, and I use that as pan grease.

    You can soak/boil the jerky and then pour off the water in order to get some of the salt out before you make stew with it or whatever. That's what the nordic types do with their salted dried fish.

I must moderate-trust me. You don't want to see what happens otherwise. Sometimes it takes awhile to respond as I only check two or three times a day. No N-Bombs, nothing to get me libeled. Otherwise, have at it. If you criticize me, make sure to praise my hair first.
