Publisher's Summary

With the whole world falling apart - crisis, lockdowns, financial crashes, grocery stores becoming ghost towns by the minute - discover crucial foods to stockpile on now for your survival. 

We live in a world that’s on the brink of collapse. Life as we know it is soon going to drastically change, and I’m sorry to say, not for the best. War is happening everywhere around us, borders are being closed imprisoning people in their own homes, viruses and bacteria are evolving at an unprecedented rate, keeping science almost helpless in the perpetual fight for the survival of the human species.

Our biggest fear as humans is to lose access to our primal and most basic needs: food and water. That fear is justified.

History shows that in times of huge crisis, food supplies run incredibly low, leaving people helpless in the face of famine. War, natural disaster, and epidemics have always been recurring disasters in the lifetime of the human species. In response to those problems, governments quickly bestow restrictions on mobility, commerce, and social contact - which, in turn, quickly diminish, among other essential things, food supplies. People are left helpless and hopeless without any means to avert the crisis they are living in.

Did you know that malnutrition stunts physical and mental development in children? Did you also know that malnutrition compromises your immune system and leaves you more vulnerable to disease and infections? Or that in the Dutch famine of 1944, known as the “Hongerwinter”, the Netherlands lost at least 30,000 people?

The good news is, we can learn from our past. We can sense a crisis when it’s about to happen and prepare accordingly. Whatever the crisis you might face could be, if you don’t have fuel for your body your chances of surviving drop dramatically.

In Survival Foods, you’ll discover:

  • The secrets of a healthy diet, even if there is a shortage of everything 
  • The tried and tested techniques of food preservation from your own home 
  • The three crucial considerations when you’re stockpiling on foods 
  • Foods that could last 30 years in your pantry 
  • Thirty of the most nutrient-packed canned food you need to have in your kitchen 
  • Twenty of the must-have grains and legumes to keep your body in good condition 
  • The things that most people forget to buy that could make your life easier 
  • The 13 essential vitamins for survival to boost your immune system and well-being 
  • The 10 oils and kinds of vinegar you need to have to fight infections and stay healthy 
  • A bonus chapter on the secrets to tasty survival meals
  • And so much more!

Don’t wait too long before you start stocking up on your essentials! The secret to surviving a crisis is being smart, quick, and proactive in gathering the supplies you need to get you through harsh times physically and mentally unscathed.

In the current events of the Coronavirus, studies show that one-third of UK shoppers are already stocking up on food, which is leaving grocery stores in distress to comply with the huge demand for food. Stocks may run short, and you could be left with nothing or, at best, with foods that no one else wants, not even you.

Great Actionable Guide!

All I can say is that I wish I had this book before the first Covid-19 lockdown! This book is a great find. I don't know the first thing about stockpiling food especially what is nutritious and what isn't. I was just grabbing anything I could find on the shelves at the time. I won't have to do that again. I now have a guide to help me. Never again will I be caught flat-footed in times of crisis. And my children will be better off as well. The chapters on food preservation, essential vitamins and oils/vinegars are of crucial import in these uncertain days. I highly recommend this book!

What an amazing resource! It's always good to be ready for emergencies and disasters, and this book is awesome when it comes to getting ready with enough food for a disaster! The narration is good, and the content is relevant; it is packed with a lot of information, it should be worth more, to be honest. This is a must for everyone! I would recommend it to all my friends, that's for sure.

Very relevant to our world today

This book is packed full of very useful information. I have been storing food for a while and this had some great tips and tricks that I have used and some I haven't that I will try. It was enjoyable to listen to and left me feeling confident I could easily store other foods I had not thought of. This book is great for not only beginners but the seasoned prepper as well.

Awesome listen!

That’s what honestly an awesome listen. I learned so much and I will definitely have to relisten. I was very interested in learning the different ways to keep foods cool and that was very well covered. I already do some canning but it’s pretty basic so this had a lot of great ideas I have other things I could try. I also really enjoyed the portion that talked about water and storing that and want to switch that out etc.

Essential for everyone!

This audiobook help provoke people's thoughts about the demand for food and prepare for the possible/upcoming crisis. It also recommends many great supplements and cans that can be stored for even several decades.
People raided supermarkets for food and essential supplies when the Coronavirus broke out. So it's a great idea to prepare in advance when things are still in control! Highly recommended!

Full of practical suggestions and preparation list


This is a good book to have available if you're like me and don't understand this topic. Gives everything from basic food storage to long term emergency food storage. It's well written and has plenty of information. It's priced cheaply and is worth having.

Because you never know!

This was an interesting audiobook and made you really think about having a stockpile of emergency food for any event that is out of your control. It really educated me on which foods you could potentially store without going bad, that are nutrient packed, and good for you. The narration is crisp and easy to listen to as well.

Great for preparing for the unexpected

I never thought about stocking up food until recently after going through lock down and snow storm. I think this book contains great advice. I really like the chapter on how to can food and store them for long period of time. I’m not a big fan of canned food but this book provides good alternatives and nutritional facts about food that can be stored for unexpected events.

Excellent resource everyone needs to read

We live in unpredictable days so being prepared is essential. This book taught me a lot about how to plan and prepare for days ahead that might not be so fruitful. You will learn how to stock healthy good foods that last for a long time and still taste good. Even if you don't think the world will have food shortages, it's still good to have these foods on hand. They can be used for many years. So many good tips, you will learn so much and feel better prepared for whatever happens in the future. I highly recommend this book.

I absolutely needed this!

Especially after COVID, my eyes have opened to the fact that my family and I are absolutely unprepared for a disaster, and many people underestimate that fact. I have since taken steps to make sure I am in fact more prepared for when (or if) another disaster comes our way in our lifetime. The most critical steps to take is the survival food you need stored. This needs to be done proactively and this audiobook gives you everything you need to sleep comfortably at night knowing you have everything you need, if the case arises.

I'm so satisfied with this purchase. The content is quality, and the narration is on point. Absolutely recommend! Easily a 5 star book.

A book of necessity

These are one of those books that may not jump out of your head during normal times but the time when you need it, you will need it bad for sure. It helps you save the food when urgent conditions come such as storm, pandemic lockdown, when it is hard to buy food from anywhere. It has so much great information including the necessary intake of grains, vitamins, minerals as well as the canned food you might need. The author did a great job lay out the information here. Great book!

very informative and timely!!

I am so happy I found this book!! The author has gone into great details to provide an excellent list of foods we can buy and store in case there is a disaster or food shortage.
this book is perfect as we are in almost complete lockdown at the moment, I do my weekly shop but haven't been buying the right foods that I could store for long period of time such as tinned and dried foods.

I am definitely going to make a list using this book for next time I go shopping.!!
