Top 10 Food Items You Need To Survive On The Road

With so many natural disasters taking place in the past few decades it makes you think “Am I ready”? When disaster strikes your area you and hundreds of thousands to millions of your neighbors are going to be hitting the road in search of safety.

Depending on where you live there might not be a lot of options for getting out, and you may find yourself on the road moving at a very slow pace. It could be days before you’re able to get off the road and find supplies. This is why you want to make sure you have plenty of supplies including food and water. Here is a list of 10 food items you need to survive on the road.

  1. Bottled Water – Bottom line is you cannot survive without clean, drinkable water. It is advised that you have one gallon of water per person per day.
  2. Purifying Supplies – Because clean water may run dry or not be available you want to have the necessary tools to distill or filter your own water.
  3. Non-Perishable Foods – Food that requires no refrigeration. Freeze dried food is your best option as it has an incredibly long shelf life.
  4. Canned Food – Because there is such a variety of canned food you are sure to get the nutrients your body needs as well as keep your palate happy.
  5. Candy – Though you cannot live on candy alone the sugars and carbohydrates found in a candy bar can give a quick boost of energy.
  6. Gorp – Good Old Raisins and Peanuts. These two foods give you the essential carbs, protein, and fats your body needs.
  7. 3 Days’ Worth – FEMA recommends 3 days’ worth of food and water for most common emergencies.
  8. Honey – This miracle food will never go bad.
  9. Vitamins – To get the nutrients you are lacking from limited food.
  10. Beans – Extremely nutritious and packed with carbs and proteins your body will crave.

When an emergency does hit and the time comes to pack the car and hit the road make sure some food and water are easily accessible. You may not be able to get out of the car and reach the trunk at all times. This is especially important with water and if there is someone injured in the car. Staying hydrated could possibly mean life or death.
