3 weeks survived and goal weigh in

Well we survived. It was a ruff 3 wks btwn ER visits to Tropical Storms dumping 5+ inches of rain on us and killing 4 chickens, to a wicked wind storm that toppled trees and left us with out power or water for 48 hours but we made it and hubby is now home :)
My goal was to be at 217 (11 LBS ) when he made it home and I am at 217.6 THAT IS CLOSE ENOUGH FOR ME:) I am thrilled with that.

So I am a prepper. I dont like to be with out a game plan or be prepared for something.( I was prepared for power outages, but food wise I guess it was from prior SO lets talk about how to eat "banded" with out power or water... Something that NEVER crossed my mind till last week, but we were only with out power 2 days. Others storms recently have left parts of the country with out power much longer...So I eat my protein first right?? meat??? Nope no fridge.... basically leaves Tuna in a pouch which is fine for a meal or 2 I normally eat it daily at lunch at work anyways not sure I want it 3 times a day tho.... Cant do yogurt?? No cottage Cheese or string cheese?? No Protein Shake unless you mix with water instead of milk ( imo gross)... I guess I could make some powder milk and use that next time....Dinner out, DONT BRING LEFT OVERS HOME, no fridge... no power...
so over the next week or so I will be getting us prepared with some MOMMY food for power outages. I like to have a plan it makes my life so much easier :)
Fellow banders if you can think of good High Protien NON Refrigerated Foods ( that does not need to be heated) feel free to leave a comment, I would love to hear what you would use!


  1. Nuts? Almond butter? honestly not something I ever contemplated...most of the time when I go grocery shopping, I don't even go down the aisles anymore, just hit the cold section because that's mostly what I eat...

  2. Hi C Flick! Glad to have stumbled upon your blog! I was wondering if you feature guest postings. Thanks and have a great day!
