Pantry Needs

Your pantry is the center of your home and of your preps.  I know usually people say the kitchen or the hearth is the center of your home, but not if your on a mission to self-reliance.  You need to always be stocking your pantry, using the products, and keeping track of it’s inventory.  Your pantry will feed your family today and will be a blessing in the future.  Even a few days of eating the same old thing can be frustrating.  This is the idea of food fatigue and believe me it is a very real threat to moral.  I once ate lentils for two months on a survival course and it took me four years to even entertain the thought of a lentil again! Sure when your hungry you will eat whatever you need to in order to survive.  A well stocked pantry will give you a few options to break up the monotony of it all and spice up your average meal.
