Amazon Prime Day is here and everybody is likely scrambling to finally get their hands on the latest gadgets and other impressive stuff being sold for cheap. For preppers and survivalists, it’s a good idea to head to the Amazon Prime Pantry and check out hat thing they can get to replenish their prepper pantry. If you’re just starting to live the prepper life, below are some of the top prepper foods available from the Amazon Prime Pantry right now.
Prepper Foods: Nuts and Grains
While the debate on the effects of whole grains on human health is still on-going, the fact remains that they have been part of human diet for thousands of years. If you’re goal is to have something to eat to help you survive the apocalypse, then the decision is entirely up to you.
A better option, according to The Alternative Daily, is to stock up on gluten-free grains instead. Brown rice, wild rice, millet, oats, and sorghum are examples of gluten-free grains that you could include in your list of prepper foods.
Nuts are different story. Unless you’re allergic to nuts, then it’s a great idea to stock up on these healthy snacks.
Cashews are one of the healthiest nuts around. They contain iron, copper, zinc, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, and monosaturated fatty acids. Cashews prevent cancer, lower blood pressure, help digestion, and prevent gallstones. They also promote healthier heart, bones, hair and nerves.
A 26-ounce jar of Planters Unsalted Premium Cashews is normally worth $21.58 but it can be had for 5% cheaper on Amazon Prime Day. You can even get up to 15% off on auto-deliveries.
Rice is one of the prepper foods that are usually found in any pantry. That’s because they are cheap, non-perishable (they last up to 30 years if properly stored), and can feed a lot with just a few cups. Rice also contains some minerals and vitamins.
If you want an even healthier version of staple prepper foods such as rice, you can stock some packs of RightRice vegetable rice grains. Yep, you read that right. RightRice are rice grains made from vegetables such as lentils, green peas, and chickpeas.
They contain twice as much protein and five ties the fiber than regular rice. Perhaps most importantly, they have 40 % less carbs. RightRice is also non-GMO and gluten-free.
Prepper Foods: Herbs and Spices
There’s a reason why preppers are hoarding herbs and spices. If or when the apocalypse rears its ugly, you’re not likely to have your favorite fast food meals or those fancy dinners at expensive restaurants anymore. That’s where herbs and spices come in. While they have lots of health benefits, herbs and spices are more valuable for one thing – flavor.
Backdoor Survival enumerated the top herbs and spices that should be included in any list of top prepper foods. You can get some of them over at the Amazon Prime Pantry and at discounted prices at that.
McCormick is one of the trusted names when it comes to herbs and spices. Its 18-ounce bottle of premium ground white pepper is currently selling for $13.99 at the Amazon Prime Pantry.
Ground white pepper is great for soups, stews and other light-colored foods. It’s also a good alternative to salt.
Cilantro is an excellent source of antioxidants, which are beneficial for the heart and for lowering the risk of cancer. This herb is also known for reducing anxiety, which is a good thing if you’re living in a world full of zombies or aliens.
The two-ounce jar of Marshalls Creek Spices Cilantro is available at the Amazon Prime Pantry for only $6.95, which is 5% off its regular price. Marshalls Creek Spices assures the buying public that it packs its products weekly to assure freshness.
Prepper Foods: Coffee and Tea
In an EOTW scenario like what we see on The Walking Dead, there are a few things that will keep you going – finding a stash of canned goods, a hot shower, seeing your child smile, and drinking a hot cup of coffee.
Make sure you have plenty of coffee and tea in your prepper pantry. Of course, you’ll need water to make a cup so be sure to stock up on lots of clean, drinking water, as well.
Even if the world as you know it has fallen, you may still want to drink carbon negative coffee. It means the company makes up for whatever little carbon footprint it produces by helping Mother Nature regain its former glory.
For every pound of the world’s first carbon negative coffee that is sold, Roastery7 will donate part of the proceeds to help the reforestation of the Mindo cloud forest in Ecuador. If successful, the forest will help get rid of harmful carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
Each 50-pound pack of the 100% organic shade-grown Arabica coffee is available for only $10.12 from Amazon Prime Pantry. The one pictured here is their Cold Press Elixir, which they describe as “a mix of our light and dark roasts spiked with our best Ethiopian coffees.”
Sun Alchemy Cognitive Coffee sells for $14.00 on regular days but on Amazon Prime Day, this fair-trade organic coffee can be yours for $3 less. Of course you have to be a Prime member to enjoy the amazing discounts on Amazon Prime Pantry products.
Coffee itself should be one of the prepper foods in your pantry. It’s a good drink to have when you can’t afford to sleep at night as zombies roam and when everyone else wants in on your supplies.
Sun Alchemy Cognitive Coffee takes things one level higher as it contains MCT Oil and Lion’s Mane mushroom extract that give you that much needed boost of energy and good mood. Cordyceps mushroom extract also boosts the energy naturally while Reishi and Chaga mushroom extracts deal with fatigue, poor immunity and lack of mental sharpness. These interesting coffee ingredients also help reduce inflammation.
Sun Alchemy brews their Arabica coffee before freeze-drying to keep the flavor. Most instant coffees use spray-drying methods, which leaves the coffee bitter and acrid.
Prepper Foods: Candies and Chocolate Bars
Who would have thought that sweet treats like candies are popular among preppers. Many people include candies in their prepper foods not because they are healthy or filling but because they provide you with a certain emotion that could be useful in a tragic situation.
Just look at Tallahassee in Zombieland. He was exhilarated once he got his teeth on those “spongy, yellow, delicious bastards” otherwise known as Twinkies. Candies can stir those same emotions after eating bland food for so long.
YumEarth Organic Easter Candy Gummy Bears, which is $4.77 at the Amazon Prime Pantry right now, would be a great addition to your prepper pantry, especially if you have young children.
Candies will help young children settle down and get some semblance of normalcy in a word full of strife. Just think of the Sakuma Drops in the Japanese anime Grave of the Fireflies. If you’ve seen the Studio Ghibli classic, you know how the candy helped the two young characters.
RXBAR chocolate bars are no ordinary chocolate bars. These protein packed prepper foods are made of natural ingredients that are proudly printed in front of the label. They also don’t contain sugar, dairy, gluten, soy, fillers, preservatives, and artificial flavors.
You can get your supply of RXBX bars for less than their regular price on Amazon Prime Day. Check them out right now and get them for only $20.67. Amazon Prime members can purchase them at 35% off the price.
Children’s favorite Welch’s Mixed Fruit Snacks can be had for $6.55 per box of 40 pouches. An additional 10% discount is yours if you use coupons given upon your first Subscribe & Save order.
Each pouch contains 0.9 ounces of the fat-free, gluten-free, and preservative-free fruits snacks. One serving also contains 100% Vitamin C and 25% Vitamins A and E. Having these sweet treats means you get to eat real fruits and take in much needed nutrients to help you get through a day of evading zombies, viruses, or invaders, humans or otherwise.
Head over to Whole Foods right now and check out their incredible deals. You spend $10 at a participating Whole Foods branch, you get $10 worth of credit you can use on Amazon Prime Day. And that’s beside the price cuts already in place on many of their products.
It gets even better. Order at least $40 of prepper foods and other items from the Amazon Prime Pantry and you get $10 off. You just need to use the code PANTRY at checkout to get your discount.
