Storing Comfort Foods

Comfort foods can help ease your stress during rough times

While not considered “life sustaining” foods, we consider them “sanity-sustaining” foods. This is especially important if you have young children. A few normal foods or delicious snacks now and then can really help a difficult situation.

Our advice to use what you store, and store what you eat applies to comfort foods as well. Try a new thing each week or month. Some of our ideas may not be your normal treats but they are great food storage items.

Comfort Food Ideas:
*Home-made popcorn in a pot (recipe coming soon)
*Mashed potatoes with instant potatoes and GRAVY
*Hard Candy
*Pudding (made using dry milk)
*Granola bars
*Fruit snacks for children
*Chicken noodle soup in a can
*Condiments (ketchup, mustard, bbq sauce, salsa, pickles - store a spare or two of each)
*Spices (inventory what spices you use and store an extra one or two of each)
*No-bake cookies ingredients

These are all just ideas- Obviously they aren’t all that healthy, necessary to sustain life, or totally “food storage” types of foods - but hey, everyone needs a little comfort food sometimes!
