There are a variety of vitamins and minerals that your body needs to survive. In a desperate situation, if you are eating and miss out on these, you can die of malnutrition. (That's not good).
If you're planning on living off-grid, think of it as a long term survival scenario. You need to ensure you're getting adequate food, water, rest, shelter, etc. But you also need to break these down and make sure you're getting the right balance of nutrients to sustain yourself long term.
The first and most important thing to realize about moving is that really Off-Grid living isn’t for everyone. I strongly urge you to close your eyes and think to yourself if you are really cut out for the hardships of Independent Living. To help you on this journey of self-reflection, I have bulleted out some questions to ask yourself before you make the leap out into the wild.
Earthen Floors, Clay Floors, Adobe Floors, Mud Floors; let's cut the crap. They're just dirt floors.
They're really cool dirt floors...
TLDR: Methane is flammable. It is a gas that comes from compost during decomposition (also in farts). If you catch it, you can cook with it like you would propane. Thus if you compost in a container, you have unlimited free fuel.
I know this post is going to get some weird responses so I'll try to get all the nuts and bolts up front.
You can compost human waste and in 1 year it is completely pathogen free and super fertile dirt that can be used on whatever you feel like growing.
There's a cool (albeit unique) way of using composting toilets that saves a bajillion gallons of water every year.
