Ditch the spam and pork sausage. Go wild game and fish. And add any kinds of veggies to it. Brussels sprouts, squash, broccoli, cauliflower, asparagus, some sauteed mustard greens or kale, mushrooms... beans and rice is just a base, man. You can go anywhere with it.

wild game

I'm pretty terrible at it and so never thought of this, but in that extended family there are two guys that bowhunt.

Only problem with most of the veggies on your list is that they're not shelf stable - part of The Big Plan is to keep everyone fed through a 2 month power outage.

As far as wild game, if you start hunting, get yourself a good pressure cooker and learn to can meat. A freezer full of venison wont do you much good in a prolonged power outage, but a cupboard full of canned game and fish sure will.

there are good freeze dried options for most of the veggies listed above. And Augason Farms also offers #10 cans of a ton of fruits and veggies. I keep a couple buckets of these on hand to fortify my rice & beans & pasta.

if your diet is only going to consist of rice & beans and the occasional wild animal, I would highly suggest you get some vitamins to suppliment. If S does HTF there will be a lot of cases of scurvy and other illnesses if people aren't getting regular fruits and veggies.
