7 Foods to Keep on Hand for a Snow Storm ...


The next time a snow storm hits and you are left without power, be prepared and well stocked with these shelf stable foods to keep on hand.

There are few things worse than being left without power, especially if you don't have a well stocked pantry.

You might be lucky enough to have a packed out refrigerator, but just remember, those foods spoil quickly without any power!

Here are seven heathy, yet non-perishable foods to keep on hand just in case a snow storm steals your power this winter!

1. Water


One of the most important foods to keep on hand is water.2

You never know how valuable fresh water is until you can't access it anymore.

It's easy to become very dehydrated when the power goes out without access to any fresh water.

You should keep approximately two gallons of water per person in your household per day that the power is out.

Everyone is going to need water for not only drinking, but also for brushing teeth, sponge bathing, etc.

Don't forget the pups either!

The more water on hand, the better!

2. Shelf Stable Almond Milk

Shelf Stable Almond Milk

Breakfast is easy when you have shelf stable almond milk on hand.

Most of us usually always have a box or two of cereal on hand, which can be paired perfectly with shelf stable almond milk when the power goes out.

I know a lot of people that enjoy cereal not only during the breakfast hour but as a snack or lunch or dinner too!

3. Canned Beans

Canned Beans

Canned beans are definitely a staple when the power goes out.

High in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals, beans will keep you healthy while the power is out.

Don't forget to keep a hand held can opener on hand too, because as you know an electric one won't work when the power goes out!2
