If living in Florida has taught me anything, it is that the time to prepare for things like hurricanes is before they happen.

Hurricane Hermine just blew through Florida, leaving a whole lot of water, debris, and mess to clean up. We were lucky, no damage, just days and days of rain. The last thing I want to do in the midst of a tropical storm is to go out and grocery shop.

I have learned that while having a well-stocked pantry is very useful on most days when you’re in a hurry to get dinner on the table, it can be essential in times like these.

I have taken to stocking Kim’s Simple Meals in my pantry. They are nutritious meals that are shelf stable and created by simply adding water and cooking. Unlike most foods of this sort, they are free of gluten, dairy, GMOs and are made with clean, organic food.

Yesterday I made a Gluten Free Vegan Cheeseburger Mac and Cheese casserole by combining a few pantry ingredients. It was delicious, nutritious, and the perfect meal to ride out the storm.
