Healthy survival cooking, and survival nutrition in an emergency is different than regular cooking and nutrition. The goal of emergency cooking is to prepare enough calories for your family to the best of your ability in the given situation.
Having an established family emergency preparedness plan with an emergency food supply and emergency water supplies in place, both at home and in all family cars, is key to getting your family through a disaster.
