Food for a quarantine

Food for a quarantine. Whoever thought information like this was going to come in handy some few months back as we wished our friends and families a happy new year? Indeed, the entire world has been thrown into shock by the outbreak of the recent pandemic (COVID-19), but survival is a priority in these trying times, and there are smart, practical ways to do this. 

One thing that’s important to note is the difference between planned shopping and panic shopping.

Supplies and medications are essential, and you should have as many of them as you can get. However, don’t hit the stores to grab everything in sight or prepped for the occasional struggle with another shopper. Being ready for a quarantine means a fridge, freezer, and pantry that is well stocked, smartly stocked in fact.

You and your family will need to be eating right if you’re going to be spending the next couple of weeks indoors. So don’t push and shove to grab all the toilet paper or Oreos off the shelf before the next shopper. Be prepared. Let’s get started with a compilation of what your pantry and freezer should contain.

Beans

Mother Earth’s beans package contains a high nutritional value, shelf-stability, zero preservatives, fast cook time plus Non-GMO, and Kosher.
