I am going to start off by saying I am not here to fearmonger. I detest fear-mongering. Also, I am not an economist, I am not a doctor or a nutritionist, and I can’t predict what is or isn’t going to happen. BUT I am a mom and a certified health coach who wants to be fully prepared for what may be coming in the near future. Although I am typically an optimist, I can also see the writing on the wall. We can’t live in fear – we must use wisdom and discernment and remain in faith remembering that no matter what, God is good.
Will we be facing a global food shortage? I don’t know. What I do know is that with the current gas and diesel prices, inflation, the current cost of feed, the multitudes of food plant fires, bird flu, cows randomly dying, and the war between Russia and Ukraine there is a possibility and if there aren’t shortages, we will very highly likely see prices go way up, especially on meat. In this video, a farmer says that the cost of farming is up 300% year-over-year. Can your family’s grocery budget withstand a 300% increase?
I am not a doom and gloom type of person and I pray that there isn’t a food crisis but I also want to be prepared just in case and I want you to be prepared too. As you read, keep this in mind: I am coming from the perspective of being a budget and health-conscious mom and a health coach, not from an experienced prepper. This is not a dietary plan and it’s not a to-do list – it is just some ideas I put together for you to help you think outside the box so that you are as prepared as much as possible.
First, let’s talk about what your body NEEDS:
Minerals (sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium)
Vitamins (mostly from food, the sun, and some from supplementation)
What your body doesn’t need:
6 meals a day and/or snacks
If there is a food crisis, stick with what your body needs and try to eat fresh nutrient-dense food as much as possible.
Sugar, simple carbs, and eating too many snacks throughout the day can cause blood sugar spikes that can drain your energy, cause you to have cravings for more food, increase stress, and cause physical and mental health issues that you really don’t want to be facing in already trying times. Now may be a really good time to start getting your body used to less of what you don’t need and more of what you do. Don’t deprive yourself of the foods you love, but eat more good foods that will nourish your body.
Almost everyone has heard the saying, “An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” This is especially true when it comes to food. By taking some simple steps now, you can make sure that you have enough food to last in case of an emergency or food crisis.
21. Bonus: Check out this book – The Encylopedia of Country Living. It has information about just about anything you would want to know about – from how to raise chickens and butcher your own meat to how to deliver a baby. It even has gardening tips, instructions on how to milk a cow, herbal remedies, and how to make a sourdough starter. I enjoy flipping through it – and as I do I pray that I will never need to know most of what’s in the book – but I will be glad I have it if I need it.
No one knows what the future holds, but it is important to be prepared for any possible scenario. In the event of a food crisis, having the knowledge and skills and being prepared can help you survive and help put you in a position to help others, too. It is crucial to stay positive and have faith in God no matter what happens. This will help you get through difficult times with grace and strength. Remember, everything will be alright in the end. So don’t give up hope, because no matter what, God has a plan and it is good.
