    No, I'm not talking about "Soylent Green" (it's made of peeeeeepul! :wow:) - but I've always thought it would be great to just buy one food by the 50 pound bag, add water (to make it's own gravy! :supergrin:) and then have it it.

    Would be "nutrition complete" and then you wouldn't have to worry about what to make - could have it cold in the moring (ala' cereal) and microwaved at night (ala' stew) - and would be a piece of cake to measure out an amount for a specific calorie diet too.

    So, where's my Purina People Chow?!

    P.S. - Would be easy to store as "preps" too! :whistling:

    I've eaten a dog biscuit or two in my life. They are a little bland but I would eat them in a SHTF situation.

    Go ahead and make it in a handful of different flavors - but nutritionally complete, easy to fix/serve/store.

    I know the comparison to "big bag of dog food" might not be appealling - but look past that and tell me what's not to like?! :)

    Life boat rations are about as close to the idea that I can think of. They are fairly complete nutrition, not too bad tasting.

    I always thought I'd be happy to eat just a pill :dunno:

    Of course it would need to provide complete nutritional needs, curb hunger & eliminate the munchies. :supergrin:

    On Futurama, Fry eats something similar called "Bachelor Chow".

    I don't know if dry dog food has all of the nutrients and vitamins that a human needs for long term health. Some people food, or vitamin supplements might be a good idea. In some areas of Florida Alpo is a big seller amongst the elderly poor.

    If you use Dog Chow long term, be careful where you sit down for a good behind-the-ear scratching, lest you get hit by a car. :supergrin:

    i posted a question like this in the preparedness forum. someone brought up a good point. the fat content in a dry dogfood/humanfood would turn it rancid pretty quickly. not a good idea for long term storage.
