Bare Minimum Foods A Person Needs To Survive On.

By Paul Kigen.
In case you were given a chance to carry 3 foods with you to a desert or island, what foods would they be? The bare minimum foods that humans need to survive are only 3 foods. And these foods are aimed at providing the three primary macronutrients; Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.


  • Grains for some proteins and carbs.
  • An extra source of protein.
  • Some vegetable oil or nutritional fat.


          1. Grains.
Oats, quinoa, Amaranth, and wheat are all equally high sources of protein. Wheat flour’s with the highest level of proteins are “hard head” wheat (spring or winter). Oats, quinoa, and Amaranth are also excellent sources of protein. As a result, you can survive on only vegetable oil and one of the grains. You will have enough fat, carbs, and proteins’, though an extra source of protein would be beneficial.

          2. Seeds, Nuts, or Legumes.
Obviously, dairy, eggs, fish, poultry, and meat are incredible sources’ of protein. But like we stated, this post will focus on bare minimal foods needed for survival, so the ideal options for extra protein are; beans, seeds, nuts, and other legumes.
Soy Nuts, on the other hand, are dried out mature Soy beans, commonly roasted with salt or/and salt. They’re rich in lysine, which is a vital amino acid, and they’re also rich in protein compared to other legumes/seeds/nuts. You should consume half as much as Soy Nuts as you would consume beans, sunflower seeds, or peanuts to acquire a similar amount of protein.
Soy Nuts are quite cheap and feature the highest protein per ounce. Sunflower seeds and peanuts are likewise cheap and abundant in protein. The fact that Soy Nuts have low oil levels compared to peanuts and sunflower seeds affects their taste but enhances their health benefits in return.
I think I should also note that 5 oz. of dried out beans are lots of beans. I do not believe that anyone’s digestive system can handle more than a ¼ pound of dried out beans each day.


           3. Vegetable oil.
The recommended kind of vegetable oil best suited for survival should have the 2 essential fatty acids; omega-3 and omega-6. Soybean oil and Canola oil are rich in both types of fat. You should also refrigerate some flaxseed oil, cold pressed sunflower seed oil, grape seed oil, and olive oil for good measure of vegetable oil.



All things considered;
Kindly Note; you are not advised to consume the bare minimum of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats as possible. DOCTORS do NOT recommend IT. This content is aimed at enlightening you on the least amounts of food an individual can survive on in the event that all other options have been exhausted.
What I learned as I was researching for this article is that wheat (flour, pasta) and various other grains are better staple foods compared to corn or rice. I had not realized the difference in protein content. I am also astonished to find out that pumpkin seeds beat out all other seeds and nuts in protein content. 
That said, you ought to store a wide assortment of foods, and pay keen attention to mineral contents, vitamins, and fibers as well as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.
