    What Is The Perfect Survival Food?

    Which food can be stored for long periods of time, is very high in calories and very nutritional? What is the perfect survival food? What are the top 5 or 10 survival foods?

    Peanuts I think...I eat peanut butter each day, it is proven to have many good qualities and I know it gives energy.

    I'm going to say, peanut butter, tuna in oil in foil packets, dried fruit, and canned mixed nuts.  Also canned beans, and if one has access to fire, then Quinoa and rice to eat with the beans.

      I accidentally left out honey; I have peanut butter and honey stashed away as our survival foods if needed (along with water).

    I would suggest can fruits such as peaches in juice, you could also drink the liquid. A great alternative if water isn't available.

    I'm gonna have to go with bananas because they have NEARLY all of the nutrients humans need in order to survive.  But no one can live longer than 2 or 3 days without water.  That, my friends is essential.  Consequently, humans can go up to about 3 weeks to a month without food.

    Nutritional foods are canned tuna, coconut water, garlic/fresh, lentils and soybeans/milk.

    Honey is my top survival food. It has all the nutrition you need or another one would be the stem of a prickly pear cactus fruit which was used years ago in keeping cattle alive during droughts.

    The best is for sure the Dried figs.!! The ancient Greeks soldiers used to eat them when the went to battlefield and they were far away from their home.Modern Greeks of course they still love the dried figs.The best quality of them is from the Kalamata, a town close to Sparti.

    Before refrigeration or freezers - people soaked meat in salt - a large container of salt water and the meat kept for years.  That is one survival idea for food instead of throwing it away.  Canned foods last  and dried fruits and seeds are good.

    Well spinach, eggs, avocado are the most nutritional for me. They are among the Top 1-'s which increase our IQ.

    Dried fruits/vegetables/Jerky ( chicken/beef)  and nuts...no refrigeration necessary..legumes ( dried beans) can be soaked in water which will soften them up as needed ans then eaten as a snack...also filtered water...best to have a built in charcoal filter bottle..this way if necessary you can get water that's drinkable from any stream...oranges and lemons are excellent source of vit c....and can be added to water for flavor...
