No tracking, shooting, or cleaning required. Ready-made meals from eFoods Direct are a great way to store food. Along with those, it’s great to store basic items such as flour (or whole wheat and a grinder), oats and rice. These staples will cover you when it comes to getting carbohydrates, but what about protein? Unless… Read more »

When you’re at home, you can control most of your environment as you prepare for emergencies. You can buy water and food to store, and you can have backpacks packed with emergency items that you could take with you at a moment’s notice. When traveling, it’s a different story. An emergency can be a real… Read more »


biscuits

Hot biscuits with butter and jam or honey on them are always a delicious addition to a meal. I remember my mother making them from scratch (no, “scratch” isn’t a product – it’s what you call making something from the actual ingredients, like flour, salt, baking powder, and water), and though she was fairly fast… Read more »

I absolutely love mashed potatoes. Don’t you? Seasoned, garlic, or with just butter, it doesn’t matter to me. Mashed potatoes is a comfort food for me, and I don’t even only have it as a side dish—sometimes, it’s the main event (especially with cheese stirred in—yum). I often make them from fresh potatoes, especially if… Read more »


blueberries

With my last eFoods order, along with several other things I bought several types of freeze dried fruits. I got strawberries, raspberries, and (my favorite) blueberries. I had heard they are good to snack on as well as to add to baked goods. I have decided that taking them along in a snack bag is… Read more »


Canned Goods

Posted by .

My closest grocery store has a special big sale periodically, and I took full advantage of it this time. It’s a “Case Lot” sale, where canned goods and other items are cheaper by the case. I bought several cases of canned items we use regularly. It feels good to know that I’m quite a few… Read more »
