I first found this recipe in Dana Carpenders Fat Fast cook book. It was last year when I was looking for high fat recipes. I have tried only a few recipes in that book. Curried cream of chicken soup I make daily during the winter months. It’s so fast and easy. This soup really warms you up. Curried Cream Of Chicken Soup was an important tool in my weight loss. Curried cream of chicken soup is almost 90% fat. With the coconut oil in it getting into and staying in ketosis is easy.

Curried cream of chicken soup is easily modified. The recipe I give is slightly different from Dana’s. You can change it to what you have available. The way I make it is not 100% paleo. You can swap out the butter and heavy cream for more coconut oil and coconut milk if you want. I like the flavors they add though. I’ve added some grated grassfed cheese to the top before and it was amazing. Also garnishing with bacon works. Let’s make a bowl.

Yaupon Holly: Survival Caffeine

Yaupon Holly

The yaupon holly, Ilex vomitoria, is something I have wanted to try for years. The yaupon holly is a species of holly tree native to the southeastern parts of the US. Why should you be interested in this holly tree? The berries are not edible. The leaves of the yappon holly have caffeine in them. Did I perk your interest? It is a caffeinated native to North America. You might be storing coffee in your preps. It will only last so long though.

I want sustainable caffeine. When I first found out about the Yaupon holly I knew I wanted some. Being an evergreen it does not drop it’s leaves. It grows in USDA zone 7. Though not native to TN I should have no trouble growing yaupon holly here. With permaculture you could push it further north. Let’s look into the the plant a little more and make some tea.

Wheat Nutrient Dense

Nutrient Dense VS. Calorie Dense

 

 

Wheat Nutrient Dense
Wheat

These two terms are often confused. Nutrient dense and calorie dense are often completely separate. While you are getting enough calories you are not getting enough nutrients. This makes you crave more food. It is one of the reasons for overeating. Your body craves the missing nutrients. As you keep piling in food lacking in nutrients you stay hungry.

I heard recently that wheat was calorie dense. I almost snapped out. This common myth is so pervasive. If you ask ten people on the street if wheat is nutrient dense you will get 9 yes’. Why do so many think wheat is good for you. You will get many answers. Mostly we have relied on grains for the growth of civilization for thousands of years. It’s always been done. Tradition. I’m here to break that today.

Today I have an update on the homestead front. I’m sure you read about my frustrations a few weeks ago. This week is all different. I spent a week up on the land getting work done. So many things finally got accomplished. We still have so much more to do. It was refreshing to move forward. It felt like we were spinning our wheels for so long. Most importantly was the shed delivery.

You can homestead without a home. Though not quite a Home yet it’s progress. Not to go off in hippie land but it felt like home. I immediately felt comfortable in it. Well except the first night. That was a cold night. Let me tell you all about it and the other projects accomplished.
