The Dandelion a boon to some bust for others!
Lynna “A Preppers Path ” Audio player below!
Now really how does one not smile at the brilliant yellow blossoms dotting the country side or perhaps your lawn each spring and summer! Ok Ok I know dandelions are one of the most common and despised weeds of those keepers of pristine lawns. But really the dandelion is just as useful as it is prolific. I like to think of them in that line with rabbits, they just multiply and multiply! In reality that’s a huge boon, the dandelion’s benefits are incredible, just a little unsung.

Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”
This Tuesday, Sam Coffman talks with Dr. Mark “Merriweather” Vorderbruggen, the creator and host of the highly informative website: Foraging Texas – http://www.foragingtexas.com/.
Mark shares his expertise in the world of foraging wild plants for food, and the two of them discuss some of the main points to be aware of relating to eating wild foods. First, they talk about the realities of nutrition with wild foods and the amazing nutrient density that wild foods give us. They also discuss the realities of getting enough calories from wild foods from day to day. There are a lot of misunderstandings about obtaining enough calories from wild foods without being able to store from season to season, and this is highly valuable information for the prepper.

Savage survival strength without a gym
Host: James “I Am Liberty”
There is something uniquely terrifying about crossing the threshold of a gym. The thought of bigger, stronger and more beautiful people than you questioning your presence at “their gym.” All of the new machines and technology you are clueless about. It’s enough to make you quit before you even start.
Though some of this is true the gym can be a wonderful experience but for those of you who don’t want that in your life there are options. I hope this article will help you get fit in 2014.
Fitness and Disaster Preparedness
Host: Sam Coffman Functional fitness is a concept that describes practical, common-sense methods of both getting into shape and staying in shape. Like most things in our current American culture, it is easy to compartmentalize exercise into something that is separate from everyday life.
Join Sam Coffman as he talks about the problems that this kind of compartmentalization of fitness presents, and how separating fitness from the rest of our life actually hurts rather than helps our true athletic ability. Sam discusses methods and concepts to help you use everyday tasks to keep your body fit enough to deal with the stresses of a post-disaster situation.The kind of fitness needed after a disaster includes several aspects in order to keep you healthy. Strength, cardio (stamina), nutrition, self-defense, mobility and flexibility are all key components of this kind of an approach to fitness.
Additionally, Sam talks about integrating situational awareness, breathing, focus and concentration and even weapons into a functional fitness routine. He answers common questions about high-intensity workouts, proprioception, plyometrics and “burst energy” as well as relaxation techniques and how these help a person cope with a high-adrenaline encounter.
In Sam Coffman’s survival school, the Combat Medic specialty is involved with the realm of the body. Sam talks about how a holistic approach to exercise and fitness creates a body and mind that are much more adaptable to unknown stresses, as well as an ability to recover more quickly from injury and exercise.

We buy staples like wheat and rice but how much thought goes into overall nutrition in your food storage. Tonight on I Am Liberty we are going to talk about one of my favorite subjects and that’s food. Food and nutrition and just how important these two things are to your life going forward. Cleaning up your diet and getting in tune with your body will not only help you through a disaster but also in everyday life.
Taking a look at what America thinks of nutrition currently and how far off the track some of us might be. Its important to understand that there are steps you can take today to get your body back to optimum levels. I mean we all prepare so we can thrive in a disaster. We put thousands of dollars towards this idea. What if you have everything you need buy your body is just not up to the task. Your will is broken because of poor nutrition.
There are a few things you should be eating often and storing as well that will make you feel like the man of steel. Not Stalin the other one. Some of which you might already be dealing with. Food and nutrition will power up your brain to be at its best when you need it to be. That is the key right. So many people talk about the basics. Well taking care of the body and mind is about as basic as it gets.
“Our food should be our medicine and our medicine should be our food.” – Hippocrates
For much of the country, it’s the END of gardening and canning season. And many of us are ready for a break from the endless gardening, (watering!) harvesting, and preserving we’ve been doing these last few months. But it’s never too early to start thinking about, and planning next year’s harvest. I have a few ideas to share with you on how to better face the future challenges coming our way in regards to continuing to produce quality, healthy nutritionally sound food for our families. We are all going to have to become more efficient with, and better stewards of, our resources as the perfect storm of weather, rising food prices, and economic “stresses” loom ahead.
So join me, Renée (aka Michigansnowpony) and my co-host Katzkradul this Thursday night, October 25th on the “Homestead Honey Hour” as we talk about not only streamlining our gardens for optimal results and nutrition, but also introduce to you the idea of “rotational canning” (and dehydrating) to help fill your pantry without the stress of trying to get it ALL done every year.
Whether you garden in the ‘burbs, on a country homestead, or get your produce from the local farmers’ markets to can and preserve, tune in and together, we can help make next season even more “fruitful”!
