PLANT-BASED EMERGENCY KIT

Updated: Mar 14

So - the world is freaking out - and for good reason. It seems like every five minutes something else has closed down or been cancelled - and whether you think it’s over-reaction or not the fact is that people are being told to self-isolate and it’s causing grocery stores to start selling out of a lot of products.


So what’s your best bet? Stock up on the important stuff - stuff that will last in case you get stuck inside your self. No one knows what the fuck the next couple of weeks or months is going to look like, so best to be safe. But while stocking up, don’t be a dick. Be kind to one another. Wash your hands.


Here’s what I recommend you stock up on. Remember, bulk stores are your friends. There are some people freaking out and avoiding bulk stores out of fear of food contamination - THIS IS RIDICULOUS. Just do what you're always supposed to do with food that you eat. Wash it or cook it. It's that simple. The virus can't withstand heat, and it can be washed away. Use the same common sense you should always use when eating.
