I'm just getting on board with really trying to stock up my everyday foods to build a good stockpile. I figure it's better than buying 50# buckets of "food" from warehouse retailers when I have no idea if me or my family will eat it. Admittedly, I'm not much of a cook, but every time I see a new thread about food preps I see wheat being included. I have never once used raw wheat in an everyday meal, so why include it in preps, especially if it is going to require special equipment to process. Equipment most beginning preppers (like me) would not have? Is there a benefit that I am unaware of? I understand the usefulness of rice, sugar, salt, flour, beans, and canned goods but I think that me buying wheat by the bucket would be a waste. What am I missing here?
