1. Aquaponics – Having a garden is a great way to cut down on the amount of canned food you need to put into storage, but what if you live in a harsh climate or do not have a lot of outdoor space? Aquaponics is a prime solution as it can be done indoors, and it can also be as big or as small of a project as you can accommodate.

2. Bagged White Rice – The most notable nutrition aspects of white rich are protein and dietary fiber, along with a high boost of carbs that can keep you going throughout the day. This is a good base for your other foods as it can provide some diversity and make it easier to remain full for long periods of time. White rice typically lasts for up to 10 years while stored uncooked in a bag.

3. Peanut Butter – This product is high in fat, but it also packs a huge protein punch. In fact, one cup of smooth peanut butter provides 65 grams of protein. You will also get more than 60 percent of your daily dietary fiber needs met with peanut butter. Other positive aspects of this food that can last for at two years on your shelf include a high percentage of iron and calcium. If you want to keep your fat intake in line, stick to one spoon of peanut butter per day.
