Foreword Can’t figure out how to eat healthy during hurricane/disaster conditions? Under hurricane/disaster conditions, we often struggle with the question: What will I eat during hurricane/disaster conditions? This recipe book is your guide to making better food choices. We are all looking for good ways to provide our families and ourselves with nutrient dense, tasty, safe, and non-perishable meals. Most of the ingredients in this recipe book are canned goods with the exception of fresh fruits and vegetables. Vegetables and fruits can be kept without refrigeration for a couple of days, so consumption during hurricane/disaster conditions is safe. Students from the Coordinated Program in Dietetics, Class of 2006, combined the recipes in this book during the fall of 2004, under the supervision of Dr. Marcia Magnus. The book itself was put together by the Department of Dietetics and Nutrition in coordination with the University Park Wellness Center, and edited by Dr. Marcia Magnus. We hope you enjoy these recipes. We recommend that you experiment with some recipes as you start hurricane preparation. Good health to all!

Why We Need Healthy Hurricane Recipes? Under disaster conditions, eating right is just as important, and perhaps even more important, than when things are normal. Eating high-sugar, high-fat, high-sodium foods under disaster conditions can lead to mood swings, and higher risk of heart disease, and hypertension. Choosing the right foods will help keep your blood sugar levels stable during stressful times. Ever wondered how to eat right under hurricane/disaster conditions? This 45-recipe booklet of dips, snacks, side dishes, and salads is designed to delight your taste buds and nourish the 1 trillion cells in your body even when there is little water or no electricity. Under Hurricane Warning Conditions While you are stocking up on your family hurricane/disaster supplies, be sure to include healthy food choices. Buying Foods for Disaster Conditions Stock a two-week supply of non-perishable foods throughout hurricane season. Few South Floridians realize that some of the most nutritious foods for your disaster food supplies kit include: Canned beans—kidney, black, navy, white, pigeon, cannelloni, baked beans, and chick peas. These are chock full of fiber, complex carbohydrates, and they are satisfying too! Canned chicken and seafood—mackerel, crabmeat, clams, shrimp, salmon, tuna, chicken. These are great sources of good-quality protein. Oatmeal– Great for decreasing your risk of heart disease. Peanut butter (The All-American Standby), almond butter or cashew butter. Disposable paper plates, utensils, napkins Tips on Preparing Food Always wash the outside of the can with soap and water. Bacteria can live on the lid and can contaminate the food. Wash all fruits and vegetables with a vegetable brush and water to ensure all dirt is removed. Substitute non-fat for any ingredient whenever possible. Remember to choose whole wheat products (“wheat” alone doesn’t mean whole wheat). Find low sodium canned products. Many canned items are high in salt. Rinsing the contents can remove some of the sodium. Wash your hands before handling any item for consumption. Things to Remember When preparing meals, remember that uneaten portions must be thrown away if not consumed. Never eat any food that does not look normal. Remember: “When in doubt, throw it out!” Do not consume suspicious foods regardless of expiration date. Fruits, vegetables, and breads spoil and grow mold faster without refrigeration. Look for signs of spoilage and discard items. To conserve water, wash fruits and vegetables before the disaster strikes. 4 of 18

Shopping List Large plastic containers to hold all items Canned foods, enough for 2 weeks (1) Gallon water per day, per person Manual Can opener Condiments small enough for one time use Spices and herbs Paper plates Napkins Forks Large bowl for mixing Ingredients Plastic container/bags Sanitary wipes Cups Mixing utensils The Healthy Hurricane/ Disaster Cookbook Before and After the Hurricane Season Pick a day of the week to have no-cook nights so that you can experiment with your favorite recipes. Utilize all canned food that was bought for the hurricane season. Utilize all water before expiration date. Pre-Disaster Food Preparation for Disaster Conditions Buy perishable fresh foods (especially unripened). For example: fruits, vegetables, whole wheat bread and crackers (saltines, Triscuit, Wheat Thins etc.) Turn refrigerator and freezer to coldest settings. Freeze water in plastic jugs. If you lose electricity, a full freezer will keep foods frozen for longer than a partially full freezer. Wash fruits, vegetables, tops of canned foods, and cooking utensils. Keep fruits and vegetables whole because cutting often decreases shelf life. Remember to store your Healthy Eating under Disaster Conditions with your canned foods. Remember to store the can opener near the canned foods. If you don’t have a bar-b-queue grill, broil or bake meat fish or poultry now so that you’ll be able to eat these soon after you lose electricity. Non-Perishable Healthy Snacking Under disaster conditions, we may be tempted to overeat because of the stress and the confinement of disaster and post-disaster situations. Keep the following foods readily available: Dried fruits—prunes, raisins, craisins (sweetened cranberries), apricots Nuts—peanuts, walnuts, almonds, Brazilian nuts Seeds—pumpkin, sunflower, cashews All-natural fruit leather Bottled water—1 Gallon/person/day for drinking (Water is the best snack of all!) Granola bars Keep your emergency food pantry filled with wholesome foods! 5 of 18

The Food Guide Pyramid and Plant Foods- The foundation of your meals Different foods contain different nutrients and other healthy substances. No single food can supply all the nutrients in the amounts you need. For example, oranges provide vitamin C and folate but no vitamin B 12 ; cheese provides calcium and vitamin B 12 ; but no vitamin C. To make sure you get all the nutrients and other substances you need for health, build a healthy base by using the Food Guide Pyramid as a starting point. Choose the recommended number of daily servings from each of the five major food groups. If you avoid all foods from any of the five food groups, seek guidance to help ensure that you get all the nutrients you need. There are many ways to create a healthy eating lifestyle, but they all start with the three food groups at the base of the Pyramid: grains, fruits, and vegetables. Eating a variety of grains (especially whole grain foods), fruits, and vegetables is the basis of healthy eating. Enjoy meals that have brown rice, whole wheat pasta, stone-ground corn tortillas, or whole grain bread at the center of the plate, accompanied by plenty of fruits and vegetables and a moderate amount of low-fat foods from the milk group and the meat and beans group. Go easy on foods high in fat or sugars. What Counts as a Serving? Bread, Cereal, Rice, and Pasta Group (Grains Group) ( Whole grain and refined ) 1 slice of bread About 1 cup of ready-to-eat cereal 1/2 cup of cooked cereal, rice, or pasta Vegetable Group 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables 1/2 cup of other vegetables cooked or raw 3/4 cup of vegetable juice Fruit Group 1 medium apple, banana, orange, pear 1/2 cup of chopped, cooked, or canned fruit 3/4 cup of fruit juice Meat, Poultry, Fish, Dry Beans, Eggs, and Nuts Group (Meat and Beans Group) 2-3 ounces of cooked lean meat, poultry, or fish 1/2 cup of cooked dry beans # or 1/2 cup of tofu counts as 1 ounce of lean meat 2 1/2-ounce soy burger or 1 egg counts as 1 ounce of lean meat 2 tablespoons of peanut butter or 1/3 cup of nuts counts as 1 ounce of meat Milk, Yogurt, and Cheese Group (Milk Group)* 1 cup of milk** or yogurt** 1 1/2 ounces of natural cheese** (such as Cheddar) 2 ounces of processed cheese** (such as American) NOTE: Many of the serving sizes given above are smaller than those on the Nutrition Facts Label. For example, 1 serving of cooked cereal, rice, or pasta is 1 cup for the label but only a 1/2 cup for the Food Guide Pyramid. * This includes lactose-free and lactose-reduced milk products. One cup of soy-based beverage with added calcium is an option for those who prefer a non-dairy source of calcium. ** Choose fat-free or reduced-fat dairy products most often. # Dry beans, peas, and lentils can be counted as servings in either the meat and beans group or the vegetable group. As a vegetable, 1/2 cup of cooked, dry beans counts as 1 serving. As a meat substitute, 1 cup of cooked, dry beans counts as 1 serving (2 ounces of meat). 6 of 18
