Emergency rations type food packs
#1
The following mix can be used for individual daily portions to insure sufficient, carbs, fats and protein for three day plans, hiking food, emergency rations and the like.

1.75 cups of dry-roasted peanuts
0.75 cup of dark chocolate M&Ms
0.75 cup of raisins

Nutritional content in each -

2562 calories
52g protein
270g carbohydrate
157g fat

The shelf life for each ingredient averages one year if stored under moderate conditions. Maybe better if you vacuum pack and keep cool/dark/dry.

May I substitute Spam for the peanuts?

I think that might decrease the shelf life. At least in San Marcos anyway.

What is offensive is discovering Spam is allergic to you.

I'd have to double or triple that recipe to make it last 3 days.

ER packs Duchess. Traditionally desired to be high in calories/carbs/proteins/fat. Not sitting around at home watching tv packs.

Making your own rations would probably be a hell of a lot cheaper than buying the premade MRE's..for the survivalists. As long as you knew the proper way to prepare and package them for the longest shelf life.
Have you ever looked at some of those survivalist websites and seen how much the survival food costs? It is one thing to prepare for an emergency (thinking of a long ter power outage or shut in after a storm) but do I really want to spend a few hundred dollars for a bunch of shit with a 25 year shelf life??
I would like a new sig line, but am not sure what it should be. So I will just put a tag that says "This space for rent"

You're right, I should've been more clear - That's per person per day.

Oh really? I was just making a fat joke at my own expense. I actually thought that was a normal person's 3 day portion.

No, you were right. The idea is to have high nutritional value in a convenient package you could carry or store in a smaller space. Not for snacks but rather in an emergency or in the wilderness where you might be using all the calories you can take in. Small pack/high value/long life.
