One thing I hear so many successful people in the food production world say almost every time one of them speaks is “grow at least some of your own food”. The problem is the only solution they usually provide is … Continue reading →

We have all likely seen the reports that food shortages are coming. This seems to be the one thing that the mainstream media and alternative media can agree upon. A lot of reports are pushing Bill Gates’ fake meat, others are showing that these food shortages are being enforced by the government as a means to keep people afraid and under their control.
Farmers are coming out saying they have been told to “quit farming,” are being forced to dump milk, and kill chickens, and turn vegetable crops under. Why? Isn’t it obvious? To scare the public into accepting dependency on the government so they will remain in a constant state of fear and enslavement. But there’s a way out. If food shortages are coming, there is a way to prepare.
Governments are banking on us not figuring out what they are doing. But it’s too late. We already know. And we can stop it if enough people open their eyes.
Ready Nutrition wrote an excellent article on how to prepare for food shortages. The first advice offered is the best: become more self-sustainable, to any degree.
You need to make the effort to become more reliant on yourself for your food regardless of what the media reports. No matter what happens, self-reliance is freedom. This is often seen as difficult in our minds, but it can be done! Any amount of improvement in the area of food self-sufficiency will go far when the grocery store’s shelves start to empty.
Order seeds online. It only takes a small amount of research to figure out what kind of vegetables and/or fruit you can easily grow in your own yard or balcony. Ready Nutrition offers a “garden in a can” which is an excellent way to grab some seeds from the comfort of your own home. With over 5,000 seeds in the can, this is what you get in a Homestead Vegetable Garden-In-A-Can. –Ready Nutrition
If you really can’t garden, there are some things you can pick up right now in bulk to get you through 3-6 months worth of empty grocery store shelves.
- Canned beans (don’t forget to keep a manual WORKING can opener on hand at all times! I have two backups just in case!)
- Canned fruits
- Canned vegetables
- Canned meats such as spam, tuna, sardines, or chicken
- Bulk dried beans
- Bulk rice
- Canned soups
- Cooking oil (healthy oils are advised, such as coconut oil or olive oil or avocado oil)
- Seasonings (salt, pepper, paprika, baking essentials like yeast, baking soda, baking powder, etc.)
- Dried vegetables (great snacks and additions to soups)
- Seeds and nuts (chia seeds, sunflower seeds, hemp seeds)
- Nut butters (peanut butter, almond butter)
- Frozen vegetables
Another tip is to learn to forage for edible plants. Wild food is FREE. The more you pick it, the more it grows. The book Free Food and Medicine Worldwide Edible Plant Guide by Markus Rothkranz is an excellent resource because it includes both medicinal and edible plants. My suggestion is to buy an actual hard copy of a book like this one (if you don’t like this book, there are several others you can choose from) and take it outside with you so that you can learn before things get dire.
Also, get your hands on Tess Pennington’s Prepper’s Cookbook: 300 Recipes to Turn Your Emergency Food into Nutritious, Delicious, Life-Saving Meals.
Could we be seeing the making of yet another false flag or psychological operation? The mainstream media knows what they are doing when they use words like “Pearl Harbor” type attack.
A recent claim by Dr. Peter Pry, expert from the EMP Task Force On Homeland & National Security, claims China is going to use an EMP (electromagnetic pulse) to attack the United States. Pry claims there’s a serious possibility of China plotting a surprise EMP attack on the United States. Of course, this is based on mainstream fear-mongering, but is there any truth to the fear? There is, considering the language used by the mainstream media.
The keyword from the report is that China is planning a “Pearl Harbor” type attack. As Josh Sigurdson put it, the attack on Pearl Harbor was allowed to happen to provide order out of chaos. Just as the United States has been working with China hand in hand for years under the guise of competition. So how much of this so-called “attack” would be a part of the overall New World Order plan? Maybe more than most of us would like to admit.
The global community has been working hard for a very long time to prop up China as a global order and surveillance state. It’s the perfect guinea pig state for complete control over the masses. It’s easy to just blame China, and they aren’t innocent as a domineering totalitarian state. But this could be all a part of the plan to destroy, and maybe even eliminate some people in the U.S.
An EMP would take down the grid, meaning there would be no electricity at your home. You wouldn’t have access to wifi and unless you pay cash (which a good chunk of stores won’t even accept anymore) you won’t be able to buy any goods. Whether this is a false flag or not, it’s best to already be prepared. Most people will not be and after a week, when people get hungry, they will get desperate.
If you are prepared and stocked up on food, you won’t have an issue. If you are self-reliant and capable of producing your own food, you won’t have an issue. Personally, I have been stocking up on coconut and olive oils. Both are good for you and packed with healthy fats and calories. Even IF you run low on food, a spoonful or two of coconut oil will keep you going. Sure, it won’t be fun, but it’ll do the trick. You could also barter these oils. Put them in smaller containers and trade them if need be. Since neither of these oils need to be refrigerated, they beat stocking up on things like butter. Both can be used to cook meat in as well, or to put over foraged plants.
Speaking of foraging, it’s important to know at least some of the edible plants that grow in your area. In addition to high-quality foods, make sure you can forage (I’ve found this book helpful) and are capable of hunting for your own meat. These lost survival skills will come in handy in the event that grocery stores close in the aftermath of an EMP attack.
