A man who could afford an Airstream should be able to eat betteró until he spends all his money on an Airstream!

And to be honest, given a choice between eating well and Airstreaming, I'll put my money into Airstreaming.

Spam is a few notches on the scale below fried bologna, and they're both hardship vittles. Neither one is good for you.

most of them died from diabetes and heart attacks between 55 and 65!
My Mom is 96 and can cook Spam more ways than you can dream of. In fact every female relative I can think of lived into their 90's except one Aunt who check in at 87 or 88. One of my great Grannys lived alone until she was 98 and cooked on a wood stove in the house in the winter and a kerosene stove on the back porch in the summer. Whatever happened to your relatives it wasn't pork or Spam. It was prolly refined sugar, 2% milk and margarine or some other fake adulterated food that the bureaucrats in Washington came up with. If we ever had a cow that only gave 2% butterfat, we'd know she was sick and she would soon be hamburger.

Span is one of the seven essential food groups - right after beer.

Just sayin', different strokes for different folks, YMMV, and all that stuff.

Iceman, those are valid points, to be sure. Some families are genetically geared fo longevity. Some are not. Growing up in the south, especially in the earlier years, that southern cooking was good, but, most of it was unhealthy. All the heavy starches, gravy on everything, salty foods, fried foods, sugars....all contribute to poor health.

I was always trim and fit and physically very sports active, till a couple bad auto accidents took me down, 15 years ago.

Most of my above comments were in jest, but, you can't tell that unless you knew me and my wry sense of humor. I did not mean to offend.

Colorado Lady, hope you can tell there's a little twinkle in mine as well. Actually I think Spam is two down from beer as an essential food group.

Be that as it may, Spam is an essential food for your inventory of supplies for Disaster Relief, Bug Out supplies and Off-the-Grid survival. It packs a lot of punch in a small light weight package. And I happen to like it - a lot - and so do my dogs.

A jar of organic peanut butter is much much better for survival/bug-out purposes, not to mention energy and general health. (Pour off/save the excess oil before you stir in a wee-bit into the rest. Use the saved oil for ointment, cooking, lanterns, etc..)

I've maintained two hurricane kitsó (1) a bug-out kit for evacuations, and (2) a hunker-down kit for riding out a storm or coming back after one before essential services were restored. Being a Corps of Engineers employee, that has happened on more than one occasion, where I reported for work instead of evacuating with the sane people.

My hurricane kits have never contained Spam. They have contained canned meats such as tuna and chicken and ham, but never Spam. No foods in my hurricane kits need a shelf life longer than six months, because that's as long as hurricane season lasts, and I'll consume the food and replace it before it has a chance to go bad, whether there's a storm in my area that season or not.

Spam may have an infinite shelf life, but so does Christmas fruitcake, and I don't eat that, either. I will never need or want to eat anything that is capable of outlasting me! In fact, even when I still drank alcohol, I never drank a wine that was older than I was, either.

Besides, if Spam was any good for you, you'd find it in MREs, but American troops haven't been issued Spam since the Vietnam unpleasantness.

Spam is very popular in Hawaii.

I wouldn't worry about locking it up. Nobody will steal your Spam.
