Healthy Recipes for Power Outages Due to Anticipated Storms

When storms or other natural disasters are being predicted, the media always talks about food, water, medications, gas, and how to protect your home. They don’t, however, talk about healthy choices in food when the lights go out. Below are some recipes and top tips to having a healthier mindset when preparing your family for what may come around the corner.

  • Don’t use dairy products in your recipe

  • Cook meats like chicken, salmon burgers, ground beef in advance so that you can throw them with any dish you prepare.
