So everyone is obsessed with zombies lately, and I mean, how can you really blame them. With all of the fancy schmancy medical research going on it is definitely more than likely that something is eventually going to escape one of those underground labs and kill us all. Just saying.
One thing that you should take solace in is the fact that when the Zombie Apocalypse does happen (and it will happen people…it will) and you surface from your underground bunker after five years, most of the food in the grocery store should still be good. Obviously that is based on the fact that you have an underground bunker and of course looters decide to give in to their humanity and not steal every last thing from the shelves, but that is a big if.
I mean, take this for example:
Looks like an innocent loaf of bread, no? Half eaten I may add- that was the hubs, don’t look at me like that. But innocent it definitely is not. If you crack open that suspiciously tied knot you will find no trace of mold or decomposition or anything that would suggest this bread is old. Heck it is still soft. And why, you ask, is that weird. Oh I don’t know maybe for the pure fact that is it now the middle of April and I just found this gluten killer in the back of our pantry that I know was purchased it the middle of January. WTH.
And I know many of you are thinking, well that’s not that bad, four months. Listen to yourself. Anything that has so many preservatives in it that its is still in perfect condition after four months is not good for you. I remember when a loaf of bread started to mold after a week. It is pretty obvious that in my 20 some-odd years we have upped the anti on making the shelf life of bread last longer and longer.
The main point of this soap box is buy real food. Food that you know hasn’t been made or treated with things that will make it last through a Zombie Apocalypse. And if you do need food to stock up on for this Apocalypse, you need only to step into the center aisles of your local grocery store and you will find a plethora of things that our body is not made to digest.
Fruits and veggies, meat and seeds. That is it. (and a little dark chocolate sometimes- for sanity) If you stick to this formula, you should be in such good shape that you can actually survive the Zombie Apocalypse by kicking those zombies asses.
Stay Healthy, Stay Active, and Good Luck!
