I follow a lot of preparedness blogs, not because I think the world is going to end tomorrow and we need to hoard ALL OF THE CEREAL AND TOILET PAPER, but because I know things happen. Just last month here in Colorado we had a 1000 year flood from a regular old rain storm that just wouldn’t stop. It rained for weeks, flooding started after day 3. By day 5 cities were split in half by rivers, which were once just little streams. Some peoples houses washed away completely, others had flooded basements, living rooms, and damaged houses. Even people with no physical flood damage were without power for days, and some cities were completely cut off from Denver, where the food comes from.
As you can imagine grocery store shelves were empty. Cooking was impossible for a lot of families, and a lot of people were stuck with no food or clean water for days.
This isn’t some crazy prepper idea, this happened to my community. This is why I think it is so important to have emergency food set aside for at least 3 days (72 hours) so that you and your family have a fall back plan in-case something like this happens.
Now, if you follow a lot of the “prep” websites, you will find they focus a lot on junk food with a whole lot of gluten and calories, but with very little nutrition. As someone with Celiac disease and a person who tries to eat the best quality food available (read organic, GMO free, gluten free) I can’t really compromise on the food I keep on hand for a SHTF situation.
This is why I was so excited to come across this great e-publication for creating your own gluten free emergency kit.
She provides a shopping list of gluten free foods you can have on hand with a daily calorie goal of 1600 and 60 grams of protein per day. She recommends adding more food if you are a man, pregnant, breastfeeding etc. She provides both options for the “normal” gluten free person and the “whole food” loving gluten free crowd. She also provides a check list of other items you will want to have on hand like clothes, diapers and wipes, deodorant, toilet paper, and more.
This is definitely a great resource to have on hand to help you prepare for an emergency situation like a blizzard, flood, or any other emergency situation.
You can hear more from Katie, the author of the book, below.
