Healthy T1D Emergency Food Prep: Prepping for a natural disaster, extended power outages, or a zombie apocalypse is always a good idea, especially if you have T1D.

Practical Healthy T1D Emergency Food Prep
When it comes to prepping I’m most definitely middle of the road; certainly no expert. But nonetheless I wanted to share with you what my plans are so that it might help you – maybe as a jumping off point or maybe to give you some ideas that you might not have thought of.
This FOOD PREP post is the first in a series of emergency T1D preparedness posts that I’ll be doing. The full series will look something like this:
- Healthy T1D Emergency Food Prep (which i’m doing now)
- T1D Medical Prep
- T1D Go Bags, Car Prep & 72 Hours Kits
The idea behind this series is that depending on where you live you might be more prone to power outages, natural disasters, or hurricanes – where you have to load up and leave. Also, just if there’s something crazy happening in the world and you’re unable to get food or have power. Being prepared is always a good idea.
Let’s dive right in!
