Most meat is what’s called a complete protein; that is, it has all 20 amino acids. Most non-meat sources aren’t, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t get all of them. You just have to eat more than one protein source. That’s OK though.1
Another thing to consider, and another reason why you should store back-up non-meat protein sources, is that meat isn’t particularly portable. You can’t just toss it in a rucksack and trek off with it. Jerky, sure, but even that only lasts for so long, and it takes A LOT of meat to make a little bit of jerky.
Now that you know what you need to know nutritionally and logically, let’s talk about some good protein sources you should have in your survival stockpile.
All you need to add to these is water or milk, and you have a complete protein source. If you have cholesterol problems, you can buy powdered egg whites and they’re almost pure protein. Keep in mind that if you’re going to use powdered eggs to bake with, some recipes will require the whole egg, not the egg whites.
