Surviving The Quarantine - A Simple Diet

One important task, during the next 2 or 3 months of quarantine, will be maintaining a proper diet. We need tasty dishes, using healthy ingredients, that will be available fresh - or can be purchased in quantity, then stored, during the quarantine.

As quarantine continues, some foods may become hard to find in stores. Also, should one become a victim of the disease, easy to cook food will be necessary.

One staple, that I depend upon when I get the seasonal flu, is white rice. Given enough vegetables to provide flavouring, white rice is economical, effective, and healthy.

One of the side effects of the normal seasonal flu - which each of us will be praying that we have, as the CoronaVirus induced fever takes over - is depletion of food in the stomach. As the stomach empties, nausea develops - and nausea discourages eating, which increases the effect of the nausea.

The worse the infection, the less you eat, the weaker you become - and the more susceptible to nausea. This is a circular effect, that ends only when your body finally burns up the infection. To some victims, this is considered the worst effect of the flu.

White rice is sticky, and clings to your stomach lining, inhibiting nausea. If you can force white rice down, even with lack of appetite and nausea, you have a better chance of surviving. And with nutritious food, you may recover faster.

Along with vegetables - which may or may not be available as the quarantine continues - herbs and spices help provide flavour, stimulate appetite, and may provide active resistance to the infection. There are 5 spices, known for improving health, that may be useful in surviving the quarantine period - and possibly, the Corona Virus itself.

  1. Cayenne pepper.
  2. Cinnamon.
  3. Garlic.
  4. Ginger.
  5. Tumeric.
I use 3 of the 5 identified spices, in my rice recipe.


Starting with generous amounts of garlic and ginger, I added curry powder, tumeric, and white rice - and developed what I call "CoronaVirus Rice". Garlic, ginger, and onion, are each available in dried and powder forms, for use when fresh versions are not available.

White rice, seemingly bland and rather nasty to some, is a staple in many countries - and may be key to surviving the next 2 to 3 months. Adding flavour (as available and desired) may increase appetite.

As always, wash your hands, before preparing this recipe - and before eating it. Keep the level of infection to a minimum.
As we experience the CoronaVirus quarantine period - and possibly the virus itself, a simple diet may be useful. I developed a simple recipe, based on white rice, which I will be using as more exciting recipes become harder to supply.

Help Flatten The Curve - Stay At Home

One of the most feared effects of CoronaVirus is not how nasty it is, how long symptoms take to develop, or how easy it is to catch from an infected person . The scary thing about Corona Virus is how likely it is to overwhelm our medical infrastructure. Hospitals in Italy have been overwhelmed for weeks . Hospitals in the UK - and in the USA - are not immune to this problem. There are not enough resources - beds, equipment, and personnel - to care for all possible victims of a pandemic, such as Corona Virus, at expected volumes. Click on the time graph below, that's based on current limited medical resources (the horizontal dashed black line - "Health care system capacity"). Compare the alternative spreads of the the disease - the tan curve ("Without Protective Measures"), and the blue curve ("With Protective Measures"). See how the blue curve stays below the black line? This represents the disease spreading slowly, and with medical resour

Protect Yourself - Quarantine Your Purchases

I'm reading suggestions that the Corona Virus mess will be with us for 2 to 3 months. If you're able to self quarantine for the entire period , that would be great. My suspicion is that very few people will be able to stay in quarantine for 3 months, without venturing outside - or having food delivered - weekly. Personally, I decided that I will have pizza delivered, a couple time / month. OK, maybe I'm watching TV too much (but what else is there to do?). My thought is, you are going to have stuff in your home that came from outside - and you will have no idea how clean it is - occasionally. The pizza (or any other cooked food) has to be properly delivered, "contact free" - so hopefully there's no exposure, there. Any other food that you have delivered, or that you pick up when you warily venture outside like a groundhog watching for his shadow, you will look at with dread. Did the cashier cough, when you were in line - then touch the 6 pack? And
