We often remind people to pack foods they like in their emergency kits.
Why? When you’re in the midst of upheaval, you don’t need to be trying to choke down foods that make you want to upchuck.
Being in a disaster is sort of like getting the flu. Your body is in a state of stress, and that can make it hard for you to digest anything but familiar, comforting flavors.
That’s why we kind of like the idea of this Foodie Survival Kit. It’s got all the herbs and spices you might need to make emergency food palatable.
Of course, not everyone is a picky foodie. But at the very least, we recommend packing a tiny jar of salt in your disaster kit. Because, as the folks at The Meadow might say, a little bit of salt can go a long way.
