You likely already keep a supply of basics like vegetables, fruits, meats. Here’s a list of 20 perishable foods you can freeze.
While foods that are properly frozen can usually be stored indefinitely, the quality can diminish over time.
You may not have the knowledge or skillset yet to master a self-sufficient garden, that is not a reason to give up. Growing your own food doesn’t have to be about being totally self-sufficient, as that is going to have to come in time and with often several seasons of practice.
What’s worse, the fundamental problems that led to the Great Recession were never really solved. Wall Street has managed to kick the can down the road, but they are rapidly running out of road. All this is the say that an economic collapse is inevitable. To prepare for it, why not learn from someone who has been through one himself?
The odds are likely that you will face some major disasters at some point in your life. Maybe it will be a wildfire, or an earthquake, or an economic collapse, or–God forbid–World War III. Which one do you think it will be?
One of the best ways to ensure you have food for the long-term is to build a survival seed bank. Take a closer look at what survival seed banks are. Food, water, and shelter are the three essential requirements for survival after an apocalyptic disaster. Of the three, though, it is food that will be the most difficult to acquire.
The Spanish Flu (also known as the 1918 flu pandemic) spread across the globe, infecting 500 million people and causing the deaths of 50 million. Imagine the catastrophic numbers in today’s time if a similar flu hit – and how quickly it would spread from the ease in transportation modern society allows.
Canned food as old as 100 years has been found in sunken ships and was found to be still microbiologically safe! Now – we certainly don’t recommend keeping canned goods for 100 years, but this is a powerful example of how well canning can preserve food.
Blueberries have already been found to cause programmed cell death within in the significantly more virulent triple negative breast cancer cell lines and an accumulating body of research reveals that the blueberry phytocompound resveratrol has the ability to kill dozens of lethal cancer types
A newly published study comparing people living close (within 80 meters) and far (over 300 meters) from a cellular antennas found that the people living closer to the cellular antennas had statistically significant effects- increases in blood damage considered biomarkers predictive of cancer.
The answer to this question is simple – Mother Nature has her own secrets. There are many who fear that humans won’t be able to survive without the conveniences of modern medicine. Granted, we won’t be able to save life on the scale that we can now, but there are natural options.
Prepping isn’t all about wiling away your hours in a bunker, reloading ammo. It’s about the everyday things we do and the differences in our mindsets from non-preppers, and these are things that only real preppers will understand.
Here are a few ways we can cut down on the labor and time of gardening and increase our yields, whether we’re just getting started with some pots or whether we’re ready to expand our production in times of crisis when survival food production has stopped.
If an all-out war erupts, it will be like nothing the Earth has seen before. All of our “progress” means that each side now has the weapons at their disposal to destroy their enemy many times over. Because of this, we can’t as readily look back in history to learn how to survive World War 3.
A number of edible plants really don’t need much light. In fact, some of us are likely to grow a shelf worth of beets, radishes and lettuces indoors even if we have lots of yard space because we’re restricted by heat and too much sunlight.
Your list of home remedies is about to get even more interesting and spicier. Although these natural herbs are medical resources have been used hundreds of years, doctors and scientists are now recommending them to be used for healing purposes. These natural medical resources can be easily substituted as traditional methods of medication.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food that was invented by native Americans. The great thing about pemmican is that it is so calorie-dense, just a little bit of it can sustain a full-grown man all day long. This makes it a great food to have in emergency situations, especially if you’re on the move.
Stacking functions is a quick term for the concept of planning things (elements) and areas (space) to perform the most services for us with the least input. It’s reusing things as many times as possible to get the most out of our time and energy, and letting the spaces themselves do some of the work for us.
Back in the pioneer days, their recipes were very simple. They didn’t have specialty grocery stores filled with hard-to-find ingredients or things that didn’t store well. They had pantry items and prepared everything from scratch.
Millions die every year from cancer. Millions more from heart disease. But a solid body of research indicates that consuming pomegranate could save your life and may be the ideal way to protect yourself against the top two killers in the postmodern age.
The use of Monsanto’s Round-up herbicide has increased substantially over the last 40 years. Many researchers are starting to believe that increased use of glyphosate, the active ingredient in Round-up, correlates to the rise in many modern diseases.
In the Winter season you always need to have a Winter bug in kit on you at all times you know you cannot easily get back to home base. You should always have a compass on you in SHTF as fog, rain, and snow can easily get you lost real fast even close to home base.
Whether your bugging out with a group or bugging out alone it is extremely important to have someone with some degree of medical knowledge and/or skill. If you’re bugging out with a group and you’ve got a plan in place, but no designated “medic”, you have a problem.
When you are older and alone there are a lot of things that go thru your mind when the
subject of prepping comes up. A lot of the questions such as what happens if I can’t get to town, how will I get my medications, what happens if the grid goes down…
We all need water to survive and if you go without it for a while your health deteriorates. Go with water for more than a couple of days and you die. Water or lack of sufficient, clean drinking water, more than almost anything else (I will go into the other things later) will kill you.
Food poisoning is no joke. Unfortunately, many people are unaware of how fresh the food in their fridge and freezer are when they return home from a long trip or vacation. If the power went out for a day or two (sometimes a few hours will do the trick), meats and other temperamental products could defrost and go bad.
