The Coronavirus outbreak has led to many question marks for the upcoming year. I want to be clear that my intention is to never to be chicken little or doomsday, but rather focusing on how to best be prepared. As a result, I am compiling an updated list for emergency preparedness supplies for the low carb diet if it becomes suggested to stay home for a month or more.

Full disclosure I have intentionally kept my head in the sand about the Coronavirus as I don’t want to get overly hyped.Your Content
However, after listening to an excellent NY Time podcast today and also reading a well thought blog post, I have begun to learn more about the Coronavrius and what that potentially could mean in the next year.
Coronavirus At Home?
What if we were suggested to stay home for a month?
Do you have supplies to stay in your home for a month? …Besides an on call therapist. Kidding. I didn’t and starting to think further about this has led me to the mindset I want to be prepared. Not hysterical or hyped, but well prepared.
Packaged Foods That Are Low Carb
I have intentionally started to think further about being well prepared in case there is an epidemic and we were forced to stay at home for a month. Would I have everything I needed?

Again, a lot of these items I would normally eat sparingly. But my intention is to have shelved low carb products for a family of 3 people for potentially 30 days.
Obviously, you would not be going out to eat so all meals would need to be at home. The more I think about the potential of being at home, the more I am adding to this list.
