Imagine living in an era when there is no refrigeration. Ever thought about the foods our pioneer ancestors ate, and ancient people before them? Foods from 150+ years ago or long before that.
Compare that to the “food” we eat for decades before we woke up to the idea of eating real food. Meals in the past were most often prepared from raw ingredients and seasonal food items. Here we are, human beings in the 21st century, several lifetimes and a world away from our grandparents and their ways. Have we become better at living? I think not.
I watch as we become ever more expectant that the world owes us a living. We are straying away from our roots on a dangerous road from which there will be no turning back. I don’t want to see our forefathers’ knowledge disappear. Wouldn’t we be better off looking at what the pioneers took with them when they traveled from Independence, Missouri all the way to Oregon City?
Game meat was unreliable even then, so don’t think that they made this five-month journey counting only on that. If your life depended on this, how would you plan to get it done? I know I would stick with whatever the pioneers had with them. In today’s article from Bioprepper you’ll find the ways the pioneers preserved their food and what they ate during their long journey.
