Cassetty recommends a variety of products that are not only tasty and nutritious, but also foods that you can survive with for an extended period of time. Products such as rice, quinoa, dried or canned fruits and vegetables, a variety of nuts, and canned soups with low sodium content. He also says that canned tuna, salmon and sardines also help maintain adequate protein intake for the quarantine diet.
