When Life Gives You Lemons…at Least You Still Have Something to Eat if You’re Prepared

Last month’s sad and  horrific events were on my mind as I was writing my Attune post for this month, so even though the theme was supposed to be “transitions, like to summer produce,” I couldn’t help stretching the idea to include some other sorts of transitions – see what I came up with in “Finding Healthy Food to Eat When Life Gives you Rotten Lemons.”

Here’s an excerpt:

Flooded basements. A metropolitan city on lockdown. Dozens of homes demolished or damaged. Underwater sewage treatment plants (or almost).

The Boston Marathon tragedy began an awful, awful, news week. Every time we turned around, someone else was in trouble somewhere in the country.

The transition from life being normal to being in disarray is not nearly as fun as discussing the seasonal transition from spring to summer and all the lovely produce that brings for most locales, but it’s these transitions – and the people who had to endure them – that are on my mind lately.

Two things that all the events of last month have in common are:

  1. They’re on my “hope I never have to experience that” list
  2. They impact the normal food system flow and remind people that they can’t always hit the next fast food chain when they’re hungry.

Did you know the average American has less than three days’ worth of food on hand at home?

Read the rest right HERE.

I’m always interested to hear what you think! See you over at the full post in the comments…
