    I am not into reinventing the “wheel”. By looking to the past, we should be able to adapt older methods to our lifestyles of today.
    Instead of buying expensive “survival” meals, we can do much better at home. The North American Tribes, Fur Trappers and Mountain Men used to carry something called Pemmican.
    Here is the Wikipedia link

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pemmican

    I have my variation in my 72 Hr bag, I have it divided into three packages with the total weight of under a pound (.5 Kg).
    The other thing the Trappers, Mountain Men and Indians carried with them was “ Parched Corn”. Parched corn is easy to make. Use dried “hominy”, you can used dried corn (maize) but you will not get all the nutrients.
    Wikipedia helps

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hominy

    Grind the corn (maize) in a food processor or the back of your knife or rock. It just has to be broken up. As you travel, eat a bit of the corn, it will expand in your stomach, making you feel less hungry. You can eat the Pemmican on the move also.
