List of long-stored foods


A list that will help you reorganize your purchasing system, simplify your cooking, and make your life easier overall.


Choose ones that can be used as a side dish, added to a salad, stewed, or in a soup:

  • Rice (round-grain, steamed)
  • Pasta (farfalle, fusilli, etc.)
  • noodles
  • oatmeal
  • millet
  • couscous
  • ptitim
  • buckwheat


Conveniently, they make up for the lack of protein and are more filling than just vegetables.If you don’t particularly eat them, you can cook a little and add a couple of spoonfuls to salads.Also, you can buy a couple cans already canned so you don’t have to cook them.

  • peas (for soup)
  • beans and chickpeas (stews, salads, and spreads)
  • lentils (green for salads and stews, red for soups)


It is best to take already frozen vegetables or mixed vegetables.

How to keep: strictly do not refreeze
For up to 6 months
How to use:

  • Defrost in the refrigerator (3-4 hours before cooking)
  • Remember that they are softer than fresh


Long storage vegetables should always be at home, so I’ll list what’s a basic set and what you can buy.
Store in a dark place for up to 2 months
Basic set:

  • potatoes
  • onions
  • carrots
  • garlic

    Advanced set:
  • radish
  • turnip
  • pumpkin
  • cabbage


This is what will help make your dishes delicious.

  • tomatoes: pureed / chopped in cubes (for soups, stews, sauces)
  • mustard: plain / grained / Dijon (for marinades, dressings)
  • soy sauce (for marinades, dressings)

Meat and poultry

It is optimal to take cuts for stewing, marinate and freeze directly in marinade.

    • wings
    • thighs
      Beef / pork / lamb:
    • thigh
    • shoulder blade


      By the way a very expensive alternative, the variant with meat and freeze will be easier and cheaper, but only if you have a large freezer.

      • Canned fish – for salads and sauces
      • Canned meat and canned meat
      • Canned beans, canned chickpeas

      Nuts and dried fruits

        A great nourishing addition to salads and granola/breakfast cereal.
        But we don’t include it in our list of essential strategic supplies anymore.
