Prepping on a cup o' joe - week 3 Protein

So we're going to spend one more week on foods just to get started then we're going to skip to another area. Let me say again that you need a well balanced diet to survive but since you can't buy everything at once this seems like the next logical choice.
This category would include things like meats, peanut butter, eggs, nuts, legumes, and hearty soups. A one month supply for one person might include:
10-15 # of meat &/or legumes
1 jar of peanut butter
3 dozen eggs
1 pound of nuts

Some easy, obvious choices for this week 'cup' are a combination of the following:
  • 1-2 jars of peanut butter
  • 1/2 lb nuts or seeds
  • a dozen eggs - or for longer shelf life try frozen egg substitute or dried egg powder
  • 6-10 cans of tuna fish, spam, vienna sausages, etc
  • 6-10# of dried beans
In review you should now have enough water, grains, and protein items to last ONE person 15-30 days or a family of 4 about a week.
