In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, my guest is Julie Behling-Hovdal, a reflexologist and essential oil expert. Through her site, Essential Survival, Julie teaches people how to prepare for the #1 cause of death during crisis — lack of access to medicines. Julie herself has an incredible story of getting off prescription medicines and healing from chronic disease using essential oils and other holistic healing methods. Julie is the author of (the-book-everyone-should-own-in-hard-copy) The Essential Survival Guide to Medical Preparedness. Plus… the tip of the week (elderberry tincture)!
Today in the U.S. we’re celebrating Thanksgiving. Though we give thanks daily for the many blessings God gives our family, it feels right to take extra special thought and care to name and reflect on the good gifts that God gives. You are among those gifts! Also in this post, a Thanksgiving gift for you!
Planning your Thanksgiving menu or a fall menu? Put this simple and fragrant cider on the burner for family or friends to enjoy while you’re visiting. It’s easy and delicious, and especially lovely when you use fresh-pressed apples! Be sure to let me know if you add anything extra special to your spiced cider, beyond the usual cinnamon and nutmeg. Happy Thanksgiving!
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’ll meet Sharon Peterson, a frugal mom and wife who says, “food finds its way into jars in my kitchen”! I concur! We share a love of jars. In this podcast, we’re talking about mostly about canning but we find our way into family work ethics, our mutual love of jars, and out-of-the-ordinary pantry setups. I also picked her brain about canning meat, as she’s an expert at putting up what her husband and sons bring home (they love to hunt). Sharon is the author of “Simply Canning: Survival Guide to Safe Home Canning”. She’s also warm and fun and we had a great visit! Plus… the tip of the week — how to get a perfectly moist turkey every time!
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’ll meet Maureen Validivia, who began her real food journey after more than 10 years of worsening symptoms of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (a thyroid disease). Conventional medicine couldn’t help and in fact made her worse. So she began her own healing journey using real foods, traditional food preparation methods, gluten avoidance, and finally a gut-healing diet. Today, she is feeling oh-so-much-better and has experienced 100 pound weight loss (without even trying). Auto-immune disease sufferers or those specifically with Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis will find great inspiration and resources through Maureen’s story and experience. Plus… the tip of the week!
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you’re visiting with Katie Baldridge from Simple Foody. We talk about her family’s gluten-free lifestyle (two children have celiac disease). She’s full of wisdom about nutritious gluten-free cooking, plus she and her family have been interested in preparedness for sometime. She combined the two interests into a brand-new eBook, Create Your Own Gluten Free 72 Hour Emergency Kit where she walks you through putting together a gluten-free emergency food supply for 72 hours. It’s a great resource! (See inside for a coupon.) Get to know Katie and her family through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast. Plus… the tip of the week!
