How Cancer Shaped Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Life and Work

The name Ruth Bader Ginsburg became almost synonymous with strength and stamina as she rose to prominence in judicial and feminist circles throughout her long career. Famously nicknamed the Notorious RBG and known for her grueling fitness regimen, the late Supreme Court justice also struggled with cancer and other health issues for the better part of her time on the bench — culminating with her death on Sept. 18 at the age of 87 of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer.Ginsburg’s health issues became public in 1999, six years after her appointment to the Supreme Court, when she had surgery for early-stage colon cancer. Ten years later, she went through the same process for pancreatic cancer. And nearly a decade after that, the Supreme Court announced that Ginsburg had undergone surgery to have two cancerous growths removed from her left lung. She announced in July 2020 that she’d been treated earlier that year for cancerous lesions on her liver, but made clear her intentions…

Stockpile Food List - Ideas for food items to stock up on while you can

Stockpile Food List

This stockpile food list is what I’ve been accumulating over the last while and I thought it may be helpful for you.

This is not meant to panic or stress you, but rather give you inspiration to search your own kitchen for long lasting food items that you can turn to for meals.

Frozen Fruit & Vegetables

Homemade strawberry chia seed jam

Some fruit and vegetables freeze better than others. After much experimentation, I’ve found that frozen berries, mango, corn, peas and onion are perfect when used from frozen, so are always in my freezer.

I regularly make my chia seed jam, 2 ingredient mango smoothies and incorporate the vegetables into soups, stews and fried up with meals.

Nuts, Seeds & Dried Fruit

No bake peanut butter cookies

Nuts and seeds for snacking, baking and peanut butter make brilliant protein options. My kids have been loving my no bake peanut butter cookies, which I make at least a batch a week of lately.

Dried fruit are another way to consume a portion of fruit without it being freshly bought from the store. We adore dried dates, apricots and figs.


Chocolate oatmeal

We have oatmeal most days for breakfast lately, so I make sure I always have an extra few bags.

I usually make my chocolate oatmeal, which only needs milk, cocoa powder and maple syrup, in addition to the oats.

Pasta, Rice, Bread, Wraps & Quinoa

Depending on your own dietary requirements and preferences, keeping a stock of long use by options of pasta, rice, bread, wraps and quinoa means you can mix and match to create a whole range of easy meals.

Another grain my family enjoy is popcorn. Kernels are cheap and it’s really easy to make popcorn at home on the stove top.

Baking Supplies

Stockpile baking supplies

Simple ingredients like your flour and sugar of choice can be combined together with other baking supplies to create easy homemade sweet treats. (Here’s my recipe index which has loads of recipes.)

I always keep the following baking supplies in my pantry:

  • Coconut Flour
  • Almond Flour
  • Stevia
  • Cocoa Powder
  • Vanilla
  • Chocolate (including blocks and chips)
  • Maple Syrup
  • Honey

Oils & Seasonings

Stockpile Food List - cooking oils

Remember to keep a stock of your go to oils and seasonings to make meals more interesting. These are mine:

  • Coconut oil
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Turmeric
  • Curry Powder
  • Oregano
  • Paprika
  • Coriander
  • Cinnamon

Pasta Sauce & Tomato Cans

Keeping a stock of your favorite pasta sauces and canned tomatoes can be used in a variety of pasta, stews and soups.

Pesto bottles are another sauce option to consider and keep to hand to use with pasta or zucchini noodles.

Tuna, Salmon, Sardine & Mackerel Cans

Tuna salad

Canned fish and seafood is a great protein option that can be used in salads, casseroles and even a hearty breakfast scramble.

Dairy & Non Dairy Milks

You can stock up on UHT or long life cartons of milk, so that you don’t have to worry about running out. There’s plenty of choice in stores nowadays from dairy milk to plant based milk options.

While we’re on dairy, I also like to keep a selection of cheeses, cream and cream cheese in the fridge. I try and pick ones with the longest use by dates so that they will keep in my fridge for (potentially) months.

Lentils, Beans & Chickpeas

If you include legumes in your diet then you can keep canned and dried options of lentils, beans and chickpeas to add protein to your meals.

Stock & Soup

Canned soup and stock cubes can bring much needed flavor to homemade soups and stews. You can of course make both of those yourself from scratch, but having a couple of options in the pantry that you can use is also helpful from time to time.

Jerky & Biltong

Biltong and jerky

Coming from South Africa, originally, I grew up on biltong, which is a dried meat which tastes incredible and keeps well for longer than other meaty options.

Hot Chocolate, Tea & Coffee

Hot chocolate, tea and coffee

A cup of hot chocolate, tea or coffee can soothe your soul and keep you sane through crazy times. So, make sure you have plenty of your favorite brand to hand.

Hardy Fruit & Vegetables

In addition to the frozen fruit and vegetables listed above, keeping hardy fruit and vegetables that last a long time means fewer trips to the store is needed. Here are some of the hardier options;

  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Lemons
  • Limes
  • Oranges
  • Apples
  • Potatoes
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Carrots
  • Parsnips


Stockpile Food List - Eggs

And finally, nutritious eggs tend to have a long use by date and keep well in the fridge.

You can enjoy eggs for breakfast, such as the above pictured green shashuka which also makes a hearty breakfast for dinner meal too.
