Shelf Reliance to become the main distributor of Freeze Dried Foods?

My heart goes out to the people in Japan who are experiencing such devastation right now and have literally no food to their names.  Their grocery stores are empty and many of them have little more than a couple of meals worth of food left in their home.  I feel like we are so blessed to have all of the space and resources made available to those of us in the USA.  Even we can be taking these precious resources for granted by not saving up all of the surplus which we've been given.

Many people have approached me in the past few weeks with the news of Mountain House forcing its retailers and distributors to take their #10 canned freeze dried foods off of the market.  It seems that they are now back ordered by over 4 months and are forced to take their products off the market in order to catch up with these demands.  To read more about it, you can visit the following article.  The quote following the link proves an excellent point.

"We maintain, as we wrote in Wealth Preservation, Investing, and Prepping For Hard Times, that purchasing commodities (food) now, can only benefit you and your family in the long run:
“If you are a prepper, for example, who is already stocking essentials foods and goods, you’re way ahead of the game. As commodity prices continue to rise for a variety of reasons, your “investment” is paying off in real terms. Buy 10 pounds of rice today for $10, and when that same bag of rice goes to $20 a year or two from now, you can say you earned a 100% return on your investment! And the great thing about your investment, is you don’t have any counter party risk, for the most part, meaning that you own the physical good and it is in your possession — you take delivery at any time!”
Those who took our advice a year ago have have made double digit percentage gains on their “hard asset” investments to date, but more importantly, have peace of mind knowing that if the worst were to occur they won’t go hungry."

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE get your food storage people.  I cannot say this enough.  If you have the basics for one year, awesome, but please don't stop there.... get as much as you can because we do not know for what we are preparing.  Not only is it a rise in your investment, you will not be able to EAT any of your other investments.  Share the news with friends, family and all of those whom you hold dear.

While I was at the Shelf Reliance Convention in SLC, the person giving us a tour of their new larger facility to be completed in May stated that Shelf Reliance currently has enough food in stock to fill the current demands for about 2-3 months.  Of course with increasing orders due to Mountain Food dropping out of the game, there have been increasing demands and orders. I ask you to have patience and be grateful that your wait for your food and items are only 2-4 weeks rather than the up to 20 weeks that other companies are having to do for their orders.  Also, Shelf Reliance gives presidence to orders by Q customers and consultants, so if you would like to ensure that you will continue to receive food, I urger you to sign up for the Q.  As pointed out in the quotation above, it will be the best investment which you could ever make.  If you were to sign up as a consultant underneath me, not only could you earn the consultant benefits on your orders, but you can also earn the Host Beneftis.  We have many people who sign up as consultants who are uninterested in hosting a party, but love the availability of the food coupled with the unbeatable pricing and rewards.  If you are interested in either the Q or becoming a consultant, email me at

Finally, for anyone who has been sitting on the fence about whether or not to buy a shelving unit, water purifier, sun oven, wheat grinder, or any other higher priced item, now is the time.  Shelf Reliance just notified us that as of April 1st, they will begin charging tax on all future orders.  What does that mean?  If you live in NM and you want to get an extra 8% off make sure you buy whatever you were planning on buying before April 1st.  If you already know what you want, you can shop at to get the awesome discounted price.

FINAL NOTE: I know I already wrote this on my Facebook, but please if you need the basics, go to Sam's, Costco or wherever else you can buy food in bulk and get what you can.  The cost of a 25lb of flour used to go on sale for $5, now, the cost is over $8.  This change occured in just the past couple weeks.  Prices are rising and food is becoming less available. I cannot urge you enough to PLEASE get on board. 

Sorry for the straight forward seriousness of it all but I care about you so consider yourself loved!

Last note: Many people in Las Cruces buy their food through the LDS cannery, but I just wanted to let you know that currently Sam's beats their price on flour, sugar, white rice, pinto beans, and comes pretty darn close in pancake mix but the Krusteaz tastes better I believe.  You are still better off getting potatoe flakes and oats through the cannery if you are going for lowest price. With how cheap salt is, there is no excuse not to have a years supply.  If you are just starting out, you can get a year's supply for your family in a jiffy.  A 25 lb bag of salt is currently only $4 at Sam's.  I know this seems like alot, but you need 8lbs of salt per person.  Take a minute and think of how sad your life would be without this wonderful seasoning, then think of how happy you should be that it is so cheap and readily available. Go get some today!!!
