Wish-Lust : Survive2Thrive - 40 Days and Nights food

I had two different friends point these out to me, and thought it would be well worth sharing.
I've covered the Mainstay ration packs
in the past, and whilst they are great high-density survival food, they really aren't intended to be hold-out food, rather than room-filling stocks of long term supplies. That's where a product like these come in.

This is the Survive2Thrive - 40 Days and Nights
preparedness pail, which is packed full of staples. Full of 15.8kg (35 lbs) worth of staples to be precise. This 33cm x 33cm x 40cm (13" x 13" x 16") tub is designed to stack securely, meaning you can stockpile and store them effectively.
The kit is filled with individually vacuum sealed in 6 & 7 mil. food-grade bags, purported to give their contents a 10-15 year shelf life, 

  • Rolled Oats: 5 lbs 
  • Brown Rice: 4 lbs 
  • Millet: 4 lbs 
  • Garbanzo Beans: 3 lbs 
  • Green Lentils: 3 lbs 
  • Black Beans: 2 lbs 
  • Pinto Beans: 2 lbs 
  • Quinoa: 2 lbs 
  • Sprouted Buckwheat: 1 lb 
  • Sprout Blend: 1 lb 
  • Gluten Free Pancake Mix: 1 lb 
  • EnerFood Green Superfood Powder: 7/8 lb 
  • Chia Seeds: 1/2 lb 
  • Fermented Miso Powder: 1/4 lb
  • Cajun Spice Mix: 1/16 lb
Everything in the bucket is purported to be raw, uncooked, certified organic, non-GMO, and even vegan. The supplies are not dehydrated, freeze dried, nor have any added preservatives. There's only the small packet of seasoning, though, and all the contents require extensive cooking, so it's certainly not eat-on-the-run food. But if you were hunkered down in your bunker, it would keep you fed and healthy, that's for sure.

The shopping list of items would be pretty easy to replicate at any whole-foods supplier, and both vacuum sealers and buckets are also available. It wpould be possible to whip up something to this effect, and avoiding the massive shipping costs to Australia, but if you're on the Continental US, well worth adding to your survival cupboard.
