When I wrote The Lost Ways Series, I thought I had covered all of the long-lasting foods that people need to make and stockpile for the next crisis. But as it turns out, I was only half-right. And it was Art Rude, an old-timer who’s just as passionate as I am about saving the lost knowledge of previous generation that showed me that.
Inside his new book called The Lost Superfoods, he not only covers in great detail the superfoods of our American grandparents, but also other extremely long-lasting foods, that require no refrigeration, from around the world.
When Art showed me the manuscript for The Lost Superfoods I was immediately hooked. Inside there was a recipe for Pemmican like I had in The Lost Ways and over 120 other survival foods I personally had no idea about, even though I’ve been researching the subject for many years.
These are superfoods anyone can easily make mostly using what they already have in the kitchen, and then store inside the pantry until the day they are needed. As I flipped through Art’s extensive research and glanced at the recipes, I knew I had to help him publish The Lost Superfoods.
And that’s what I did. One of the first copies of the book arrived on my doorstep a few days ago.The Lost Superfoods is a sturdy book with 270 pages in letter format (8.5 x 11 in), so it’s quite easy to read even if your eyesight isn’t perfect anymore. One of the first things I noticed about the book was that the table of contents is organized with each superfood as a separate chapter.Flipping to a chapter you can read about how the superfood was invented, how it was stockpiled by our grandparents and especially how it was made. You always have a full list of every ingredient and a step-by-step cooking process anyone can follow. I liked it how all the guesswork was taken out regarding quantities, temperatures and all the rest.
Unlike other books that teach you how to cook, The Lost Superfoods focuses only on the foods that last a very long time without refrigeration. I have been looking for this kind of book for a long time but could not find one. Having a not so negligible amount of experience on the subject of long-lasting foods, I could tell The Lost Superfoods was a true bible when it came to crisis nutrition – and that it would end up saving countless American lives. Almost nobody remembers these lost foods today, just like many people didn’t remember Pemmican until I unearthed it with The Lost Ways.
But they really should.
These are REAL FOODS like the ones you eat each night for dinner. But unlike modern survival foods, they all use ingenious cooking and preservation methods to keep good for years.
And they don’t need any freeze-drying that very few Americans can even hope to afford, especially these days.
They are extremely long-lasting without any kind of refrigeration. I’m talking at least 3 years on the shelf here…but in some cases it goes as high as a few decades. So, if the power ever goes out your food won’t go bad.
And last but not least these superfoods are very cheap to make and stockpile for darker times – a necessity in my opinion to find their way into the pantries of as many fellow Americans as possible. God knows food is expensive as it is – so when I’m looking to build a survival stockpile I like to get as much bang for the buck as possible.The Lost Superfoods is truly a book unlike any other. It’s filled with the lost superfoods that kept previous generations alive through the worst of times.
Not just in America, but all over the world.
They will do the same for you and your family, when the time comes. They’re full of protein, vital fats, vitamins and minerals our bodies need to stay strong in any situation.
Your body will be able to draw on the fat for energy, the protein for muscle strength and the vitamins for health.
You don’t need much more than that to thrive!
This is truly a cookbook for the apocalypse that any American can use to build up a stockpile to cover his family’s needs for months or even years during a raging crisis.
Inside you’ll discover things like “The US Army’s Forgotten Food Miracle”… a truly amazing dish researched by our military during the Cold War. This one lasts even more than Pemmican! About 60 years or more …and it can keep your entire family well-fed for just a couple of dollars a day.
Another one is a type of portable soup that saved one of the greatest American expeditions of the 1800s. This food kept Lewis and Clark on the road to reach the western coast of the United States when they could not find enough game meat and they were constantly under attack by Natives.Other foods inside the book include Amish Poor Man’s Steak, The Native Superfood that Saved American Colonists in the Winter of 1621, Fruit Leather, Biltong, Ghee and many others that will cover your every nutritional need before and during a crisis.
The Lost Superfoods also contains a lot of preservation methods you can use for your favorite foods to make them last longer.But that’s just a small taste and the more I read the more fascinated I became.
I believe this is one of the most important books you can keep on your shelf not only as a prepper or survivalist, but as a person who is concerned about one day going to the store only to find it empty.
As you know this can happen even during a local disaster such as a hurricane that makes people panic buy like crazy.
Having read through the whole thing and made many of the superfoods saved inside, I can tell you this is one book you probably won’t want to have missing from your stockpile.
