In this second part to the Winter prepping series we talk about calories. In the cold you will burn more calories. You need to make sure you count for that in your preps. I have a few thoughts on storing calories for winter. Like we talk about not all calories are  equal. You will not find advice here to store up on Twinkies. Twinkies are not fit for human consumption. The only reason to store them is for barter with Woody Harrelson.
