Follow me on:

Nature can strike quickly with floods, hurricanes and other disasters. Those of you living on the East Coast and New England states of the U.S. might be thinking about this right now. So, you might want to stock up on your emergency food pantry while you still have electricity. I've got tips for you: Stock an Emergency Food Pantry

Here's More Help During an Emergency

Keeping Food and Water Safe During an Emergency
Stocking up on ice cream might not help you much when the power goes off, but it might help to fill your freezer with extra container of ice - the more frozen things you have when the electricity shuts down, the longer the foods will at least stay cold. Learn more about keeping food and water safe during a prolonged storm.

Low-Carb Emergency Food
Maybe you're a low-carb dieter and want to know what to keep on hand so you can weather the storm and stay on your diet - our Low Carb Diets Guide has some tips.

Disaster Meals
You might still be able to cook if you have a gas stove or outdoor grill. Our Busy Cooks Guide explains how to be ready for an emergency, plus she has some easy to make recipes that don't rely on power.

Everyone should not only have short term food storage but also some long term food storage. A 72 hour kit is a must to start out. When working on your food storage my rule of thumb is buy one to use and buy one to look at.
