SHTF Diet – Last Days – It’s Over – Harder Than You Might Think

SHTF Diet – Harder Than You Might Think

So I have bored you with the details of the SHTF Diet. For the first two weeks, I gave details of what we ate each day and meal boring stuff. It was much harder than you might think. We have finished the entire 30 days I just haven’t had the time to document each day. Here are some of the highlights of the final two weeks.

Day 15 – After a breakfast of oatmeal Kas gave Scott a tour of the tunnels. He had no idea we could go from house to barn without going outside. I was off cutting firewood so lunch for me consisted of trail mix and jerky. After exploring the tunnel system the kids went fishing and brought home a couple good catfish. Guess what we had for dinner? Fried catfish rice and beans with corncakes.

Days 16 – 17  More oatmeal for breakfast and jerky for lunch. Dinner was rice and beans with fresh vegetables from the garden. Yes, I am getting tired of rice and beans.

Making A Long Story Short

During the remainder of this experiment, we had oatmeal for breakfast every morning, rice and or beans  for dinner. There were some exceptions when we had beans with canned meat added or made into chili recipe here.

You can buy many survival foods from My Patriot Supply, Emergency Essentials, and BUY EMERGENCY FOODS, and others that can be found on our links pages

What We Have Learned

We found that weight loss is unavoidable that you can live on rice and beans indefinitely.

I lost 17.5 pounds, Scott lost 12 pounds, Kas lost 6 pounds and my wife was very happy with her 12 pound loss not that she needed to lose it.

The experiment in our opinion was a success and we have learned to adjust some of our food needs. Living on survival foods may be harder than you might think.

Oh The Pain of it – I have a praise – Humor Tuesday – August 16, 2016

Oh The pain of it

The sermon was over, but before dismissal from the Sunday morning services, the Pastor asked if anyone in the congregation would like to express praise for answered prayers.

Suzie Smith stood and walked to the podium.

She said, “I have a praise. Two months ago, my husband, Tom, had a terrible bicycle wreck and his scrotum was completely crushed. The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn’t know if they could help him.”

You could hear a muffled gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagine the pain that poor Tom must have experienced.

“Tom was unable to hold me or the children,” she went on, “and every move caused him terrible pain.  We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation, and it turned out they were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Tom’s scrotum, and wrap a wire around it to hold it in place.”

Again, the men in the congregation cringed and squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Tom.

“Now,” she announced in a quivering voice, “thank the Lord, Tom is out of the hospital and the doctors say that with time, his scrotum should recover completely.”

All the men sighed with unified relief.

The Pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had something to say.

A man stood up and walked slowly to the podium. He said,

“I’m Tom Smith.” The entire congregation held its breath.

“I just want to tell my wife……

the word is sternum!”

Oh The pain of it
