New York, NY (PRWEB) October 4, 2010
The news updates are endless, gusts of wind are increasing, and peak hurricane season is still active—and you’re diabetic. What is on your must-have shopping list? What type of nutricious meals will keep you healthy until the electricity returns, the trees are cleared from the streets and the grocery store is up and running? Everydayhealth.com has come to the rescue with The Hurricane Disaster-Proof Healthy Eating Guide.
This online handbook addresses the special nutritional needs for major health concerns, including those suffering from high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and celiac disease, expecting moms, vegetarians and vegans, and the nutritionally minded.
“When we think of preparing for hurricane season or any weather alert, we don’t immediately think of making healthy food choices a priority,” said Jenny Sucov, Vice President of Editorial for Everyday Health. “But if a storm strikes and you’re without power for several days, you’ll want to make sure your emergency kit has more than just granola bars and baked beans. If you or someone in your family has a medical condition, it’s critical that you plan ahead to have the right balance of foods on hand.”
Registered Dietitian Stacey Whittle, co-owner of Healthy by Design Nutrition Specialists, is the chief advisor on the complete guide and provides the smartest, most nutritional ways to prepare your kitchen and pantry in case of any natural weather disaster with descriptive shopping lists and sample menus. The checklists for each condition outline the proteins, fruit, vegetables and other goods necessary for sustainment.
The guide is intended to serve all residences in hurricane threatened areas in the Southeast and along the East Coast as well as a reference for people nationwide who prepare for and experience natural disasters year round. While hurricane and natural disaster victims cannot control the results, in some cases they are able to keep their diets intact and that is the sole purpose of the Hurricane Disaster-Proof Healthy Eating Guide.
