    The link to “Staple Crops of the World” seems to be broken. Looking forward to learning more. Thanks so much for your help 🙂

  • Carien says:

    Never thought about staple crops……new thinking and planning for me. Thanks!

  • Mykela Greenwood says:

    What a complete let down! I don’t eat grains or starches. My diet consists of nutrient dense calorie poor foods. I’m trying to grow my own food to get off SAD (Standard American Diet). Wheat and corn and rice are not easily tolerated by my body, so it was disappointing to hear that these should be the main things we grow. I also don’t eat beans or legumes.

    • Bret James says:

      Hey Mykela!

      Just to clarify this is just an option for those who wish to attempt to grow a large portion of their calories with staple crops and may not work for everyone and all diets 🙂

      Also, nutrient dense foods are subject to the soil and environment from which it was grown – check out the lesson on the brix indicator for more!

    • Carl Gibson says:

      Do you eat nuts? practically all of them are great staple foods. Also potatoes and sweet potatoes.

  • susan tupper says:

    the tubers are the main staples in the tropics but they don’t keep as long but I am seeing coconut flour and reading about ways to preserve cassava and breadfruit etc. I never knew rice was restorative but the idea of harvesting small grains and seeds sounds like too much work – I love rice though so may give it a go now I know it’s good for the soil!
