Why such an emphasis on huge quantities of wheat. I wouldn’t even know what to do with it. I thought the basic goal was to store what you eat and eat what you store. I have NEVER used raw wheat in my life …
Wheat is one of those healthy, multipurpose preps that can help sustain us during long term emergencies. They are also a true whole grain. A cup of cooked wheat berries has about 300 calories and is packed with fiber, protein, and iron. Tasty sprouts are loaded with vitamin E, a cell-protecting antioxidant, and magnesium, which is good for healthy bones and muscles.
They can be used as a breakfast cereal, ground into flour, used to make bread, added to soups, cooked and added to salads or sprouted for a healthy snack and even sweetened for desserts.
In my opinion, having a supply of wheat berries in an extended emergency will enrich your SHTF diet with essential calories and vitamins rich. They will help you withstand the increased physical demands of surviving a long term disaster, as well as keep you healthy.
