            Ridiculous amounts of canned vegetables and soups (I have a stock in my basement that would last a family of four through nuclear winter)
            Canned tuna and chicken
            Peanut butter, various jellies and jams
            Olive oil
            Sugars (granulated, brown, confectioners')
            Canned tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, stewed tomatoes
            Granola bars (usually the fiber kind)
            Various hot pepper sauces
            Maggi seasoning (WAY better than any soy sauce)
            Chicken and beef broth
