Food Options in the Rural Market

Rural areas of the world offer some distinct drawbacks to feeding oneself during Anypocalypse. Shops, if there are any, are far apart at best. They will be General Stores of the most grotesquely quaint flavor. The chances of finding a nice beluga caviar to enjoy while defending your unborn child from carnivorous fish from outer space are slim.

However, rural areas tend to have a few distinct advantages that urban and suburban areas do not.

Food Options for the "Civilized" Woman

Fast Food:  Avoid burger joints if you are looking for healthful food that will give you sustainable energy.  It’s the rare burger bar that offers any truly healthy choices.  For example, even the salads on McDonald’s menu contain sugar.  About the only items on the menu that don’t are Diet Coke®, bottled water, and french fries.

Don’t overlook items like bottled water that are on some chains menus.  Skip the so-called fresh fruit.  It’s really just candy in fruits’ clothing.

Eating Well While on the Run

Every apocalypse comes with its own set of problems and pit-falls, but they all have one in common: poor diet.

We all know that everyday living requires exercise and a good diet.  Well, when you are running from the zombie horde, trying to evade Nosferatu, or holding onto Buddha’s toe to keep from being swept away by a tsunami, you’ve got exercise covered.  Seriously, exercise doesn’t get much more covered than wrangling scientifically engineered ants.

But what about diet?

Really.  Will you eat well?  Or will you dumpster dive for a tossed away McDonald’s food-like item that was pitched into the bin Lord only knows how long ago?  If it’s not the Rapture you are facing, the Lord is not going to be around to answer questions regarding expiration dates.

Back away from the garbage and look around.

Welcome to the Ladies' Guide to Surviving Anypocalypse!

Hello ladies,

As you have divined from the blog title, we are concerned with surviving any sort of apocalypse.  Zombpocalypse?  We’re good.  Vampocalypse?  Ditto.  Snowpocalypse? Seriously: we’re from New England! 

At first, we’ll publish posts (and follow ups) about the –pocalypses that seem to be most in demand.  However, we want to give you information that you want.  That you needComment, e-mail, post: let us know what kind of –pocalypse’s ass you feel needs kicking!

As you have also noticed from the blog title, this is lady-centric.  In other words,  we will take items that are traditionally considered female trappings and apply them to some serious survival!  (Of course, the men out there who are secure enough to admit that they use such items are welcome to our expertise as well.  After all, we’ll need both sexes to repopulate.)

While the bulk of articles and posts deal with surviving specific types of apocalypse using decidedly feminine tools, some articles will be more general.  They will deal with skills all survivors of anypocalypse should have.

This is your blog too: make it better by telling us what you want to know about!  Do you think that we've overlooked a valuable tool for decimating the zombie masses?  Let us know!  Have we glossed over particular uses of nail lacquer?  Tell us!
