IT’S BETTER WITH BBQ

COMFORT FOOD CAN BE A GODSEND DURING A DISASTER.

Nothing is as devastating as losing everything you have worked hard for to some sort of disaster. It doesn’t matter if this happens because of a hurricane, earthquake, forest fire or a volcano eruption. When this happens, feelings of loss, depression, anger and a host of others set in and can overwhelm even the strongest person. When these feelings creep in, it can be helpful to remember that you are not alone, either in feeling the emotional pain or in your surroundings.

In almost all situations, one thing that brings everyone together is good food. Food, like a campfire, is comforting; food is soothing; it brings peace of mind and a sense of normalcy, even if just temporarily.

Many of us put a considerable effort toward ensuring our survival, especially by securing the gear we need to make those physical things that will keep us alive when the SHTF. But these address just a small part of survival, which is more mental than it is physical. You can have all the gear and learn all the skills, but if your head is not in the game, you will be lost.

A good diet will promote a positive attitude and help keep you focused on what needs to be done. Have you ever tried to complete a task while you are hungry? If you are thinking about your next meal, you can’t focus on the task at hand. In a survival situation, this could be dangerous or even life-threatening.

Yes, you can “live” on foraged greens and freeze-dried food. They will fi ll your stomach and give your body the energy it needs. But that gets old. And is that really “living”? I could live on sandwiches too, but I would rather not.

Sometimes, you need to take a break and treat yourself and the other members of your party. It is good for you physiologically, and it gives you an opportunity to reflect on what you have, not what you lost.

I KEEP EVERYTHING IN A BIN SO THEY ARE READY TO GO WITH ME IN CASE I HAVE TO GET OUT. I DON’T CARE WHAT THE SITUATION IS— IF I CAN, I’M GOING TO EAT WELL.
