When it comes to food storage, there are lots of options. There are canned goods, bulk items, dehydrated meals, MREs and, of course, freeze dried foods. Whatever you decide to choose for yourself and your family is somewhat of a personal choice and given proper storage conditions, there is no reason not to have some of each.
Given the many choices, some will say that freeze dried foods are cost prohibitive but I find that is simply untrue. When compared to packaged foods, fast food and perishable food that spoils while lingering in the refrigerator or on the counter, freeze dried food becomes a viable and cost effective option that is quick, convenient, and with careful selection, healthy.
