Sugar, foods, and health in prepping!
James Walton “I Am Liberty”
I was sitting in the sauna today after a grueling workout it came to me. I was dripping sweat and staring the scorching ground of the sauna thinking about how hard it had been to avoid sugar for the 3 weeks I have been at it. That’s when it occurred to me that we store lots of food as preppers. Whats the content on this food and what would become of us if we feasted on Datrax Read more “Sugar, foods, and health in prepping!”

TEOTWAWKI~ A New World!
Host: Lynna “…A Preppers Path”
TEOTWAWKI is a term often bandied about and usually has a pretty scary meaning. BUT what if you could change your life today, your world, creating a solution based TEOTWAWKI, the way we want it. Imagine your world the way you want it, now, a life based in self-sufficiency through self-reliance. A world based on sustainable living enabling us to live a more healthful and peaceful life. There is no question that our economy is on a rocky foundation at best, news of natural disasters are common place, fear of possible pandemics, peak oil, terrorist destruction of key infrastructure, EMP flares, and a host of other issues flood the media and seep into our conscious .The fact is that the entire US is no longer food self-reliant, but is dependent on foreign imports to feed the American people. Next to water food is the next most important item in staying alive. We must drink and eat, nourish our bodies to continue. Pretty simple, right? With all the hoopla we can become defeated before we start. Read more “TEOTWAWKI~ A New World!”
This show re-scheduled from last week due to technical issues will air LIVE tonight Thursday 4/25
Many of us have food storage. As people living a prepared lifestyle we take it upon ourselves to make sure we have what we need for any situation. Food storage is the first thing many “preppers” try and achieve first. We learn about a lot of things along the way but no matter how seasoned you may become when it comes to this facet of your preparedness there is always the dreaded “expiration date” question looming over our heads!
Join Noreen on The Homestead Honey Hour Thursday for this week when she will try to de-mystify what that expiration date on your groceries REALLY means, where it came from, how it started and how we can be sure that eating a product beyond that number will be safe for our family!

On this episode of Preparing For Life’s Storms! It is all about how you form a budget for yourself and learn to shop wisely while gathering a good food storage. You learn how to use your kitchen and cook from scratch, then you start using the storage you built up. Meanwhile, there is a way to save for the big-ticket items such as a deep freeze, wheat grinder, shelves to put your storage on, get out of debt, etc.
It’s so easy! The hard part is letting go of bad habits like overspending on a whim, impulse shopping, eating out all the time, and such. For some it may be learning how to cook! I’ve done many seminars on this book! Almost as many as the wheat book.

Join Deb today on “Common Sense Prepping” as she gets specific on food storage. Many new Preppers ask what exactly they need to have in a full months’ food supply. This week, Deb will let you know what to buy and how to get a good start on your storage in a hurry. Deb will share her idea of one month food storage for around $200.00, which in turn can be built into a three month supply easily. You know, there are some things which can come upon us all of a sudden and we are at a loss on what to do or where to turn unless we are prepared. Being prepared helps us to be less stressed when the time comes. Better to be prepared and never need it than to need it and not be prepared. People from all walks of life are feeling something going on, and even though they can’t seem to be able to point their finger on exactly what that something might be, Preppers will be the people most likely to survive.
In these dire times we all can use some help. If you are a prepper, like many of us it’s scrimp and save to prepare. I recently received this email from a dear friend and found worth posting and sharing with all of you. I believe that most preppers are in the 50 plus year old category and even if you are not here is some great information for you and I encourage everyone to pass along to those that can use it.
Senior Discounts (50 years and above) – Please pass it along!
Senior Discounts Keep this list – – – and Send a copy to your senior friends and relatives.
As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy’s recently, I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me those seniors over age 55 gets 10% off everything on the menu, every day.
Being of ‘that’ age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too. This incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and how some of them startat the young age of 50.
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family, too.
