What to stock, cook if you face a 14-day quarantine. Why is Protein a must?

You should stock fruits, vegetables, eggs, milk, powdered milk, cereals, legumes, healthy snacks, beverages like tea, coffee, canned juices, dry fruits, and instant oatmeals. Storing protein-based vegetables, eggs, and chicken will provide essential nutrients and energy you need to get going.
