Dear friends, the frenzy to forage for food and running to the market as an emergency situation looms and standing on a line that wraps around the perimeter of a supermarket I think is downright foolish. If we follow my simple theory about the importance to “maintain basic staples” we’d all be in much better shape even under non emergency conditions. We’ll be proactive and not reactionary.
So lets look at what non perishable foods to keep around. The first item that leaps to my mind is GRANOLA. I’m also totally into this new food item I just came across called GLAD CORN. It’s over sized half popped corn kernels, all organic of course. Dried fruits and nuts, especially almonds are great to have around. I have two packages of Kame rice crackers and a tin or two of fine fish, sardines in olive oil or mackerel. Certainly beans & grains are important to keep around. Quinoa is my favorite due to it having zero salt and fats while being very high in protein.
I’m gearing up to shoot a Recipe$ 4 $urvival episode during the hurricane. The dish I’m going to make is far from seasonal but it will be OH SO GOOD. I’m going to make sugar plum grape tomato and vidalia onion RISOTTO. Stay tuned.
Here’s to cooking up a storm.
