Self-Reliant Saturday-- The Right Nutrition In An Emergency

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
"In an emergency, the right nutrition becomes a crucial element of your survival and ability to do what needs to be done--whether that's rebuilding your home, searching for other survivors, or evacuating on foot.  Protein is a non-negotiable when it comes to nutrition [and preparedness].  Stock up on your favorites!"
  --quote from the Emergency Essentials monthly catalog

Even if your home isn't destroyed, or you aren't searching for survivors, if we are living in a post disaster world for a while life will be harder physically.  We will be doing work that we aren't used to doing physically.  Digging, clearing debris, cooking over a fire, manually grinding flour, these are all activities most of us don't do on a daily basis.  Protein will help keep you feeling full, and give your the extra strength you'll need in a disaster. I'll list a few examples of protein sources that aren't a slab of meat :)
  • peanut butter and all other nut butters
  • nuts and seeds
  • quinoa/amaranth/bulgur/teff/millet
  • chia seeds
  • protein bars
  • beans
  • tuna
  • canned chicken and other meats
  • protein powder (would be great to make a protein drink with one of those shaker cups)
