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!
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, my special guest is KerryAnn Foster from Intentionally Domestic (formerly Cooking Traditional Foods). When I heard about her new Family Preparedness Class, I knew it was time to ask her to be a guest. Why? She’s been prepping with real foods for many years. Twice her family has had to rely on food storage to get them through difficult times lasting up to a year. She really knows her stuff, and not only that, her plans have been put to the test and passed with flying colors. In this episode, KerryAnn shares her family’s story of how they became real food preppers while working around intolerances and allergies, she gives tips for newbies to real food storage (super-duper tips), and she unveils her brand-new and absolutely awesome Family Preparedness Class — which is on sale through Friday, November 1, 2013. Plus… the tip of the week!

At least if you’re interested in food storage with traditional foods. That couldn’t possibly be you, could it?
Last week — was it really last week? — we went to the butcher and picked up the cut and wrapped beef from our first home-grown grass-fed beef. Remember I shared the whole mobile slaughtering experience with you? One thing I did not expect was to get back so much fat! We got five bags of fat — which absolutely would not fit in the freezer. That meant I had to start rendering tallow ASAP.
Note: This is not totally up to date, although I have updated it a bit. (1/30/2010) My pantry is never as full as this list would suggest. Don’t use this list as the end all authority for your own natural foods pantry. Use it as a starting place for evaluating and/or improving your own pantry. […]
Many health-conscious cooks and mothers of large families often make bulk food purchases. It not only simplies shopping but often rewards the family with great savings in food costs. My family is no exception. We purchase non-perishables to last for one or two months or more. To make purchases this way requires workable pantry storage. […]
