16 Forever Foods, Food That Never Spoil
I did a post a few weeks ago about ways to help keep your food longer, well here is a great list of 16 foods that last forever.Just like anything, these foods will only last forever when properly stored and cared for. The best thing about all of them is that you can get them at some vending machines, one problem with whole, natural foods is that they tend to spoil easily. Therefore, eating healthy is associated with frequent trips to the grocery store. It can also be a challenge when traveling without access to a refrigerator. Still, many healthy foods can be stored long term without spoiling, as long as you have the right temperature and moisture conditions.
Some foods have naturally long shelf lives, and if stored properly, will keep for months or years. Other foods spoil quickly, usually due to a high oil and/or moisture content, and will last a long time only if they’re dried, canned or otherwise preserved. There are numerous foods that spoil faster than you’d think.
That means keeping them in well sealed containers stored in cool dry places whenever possible, as well as keeping up routine inspection and rotation. Always supplement meals with fresh and varied ingredients whenever possible, a well-rounded healthy diet is extremely important for truly long-term survival.
