    I understand a number of those things in a post SHTF scenario.

    Why no fried foods, no bacon, no sausage, and no french fries?

    Being unable to eat red meat or dairy anymore, that is pretty close the core of my daily intake minus the coffee, but I do drink black tea.
    I do like fries though, but I make baked fries which are pretty awesome if I do say so myself and a bit healthier.
    I'll be done when I'm finished, if that's not fast enough, take a number please.

    No cornbread or sweets is a problem for me. I love them both with all my heart and soul. The list at the top is just fine with me. Probably a better diet than what I'm on now!

    @Real Old Man I'm just wondering what kind of scenario your thinking this diet is for? Is it a post SHTF for health, like for a person who's had or is trying to prevent a heart attack? I keep some candy, white rice, sausage in my preps. They store fine.

    May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
    and do thou,
    O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
    by the power of God,
    thrust into hell Satan,
    and all the evil spirits,
    who prowl about the world
    seeking the ruin of souls.

    Amen

    Yeah, Dr told me something along those lines 10 years ago also. Cut my meal size in half, same food, and walk a few miles a week. Quit going to the DR playing his games, so far so good.

    I'm assuming that by SHTF your doc has severely limited your food choices.

    A friend has had cancer and kidney problems, for 35 years. Quit drinking, all vegan diet with foods that taste awful to me, But he's still sharp at 86 years and put a new tile floor in his kitchen last year, really, I was over there while he was on his knees scraping the old floor glue up. Last month he asked if I needed any furniture built, he does wood working as a hobby. I hope to have the energy he has at that age. We often discuss foods and I've started eating a tad better but I still love a good steak.

    His daughter mentioned hearing him making love to her mother last year at age 85. Maybe that diet has some advantages.
