Ok Let’s try this again. I love it when wordpress eat a completed post. It is getting cold outside. Even here in Tennessee it’s down to 21° already. With the cold comes the crud. With a combination of the weather and building I feel like crap. Sore throat, runny nose and achy. When I get like this there my go to solution is soup. It’s easy to make and warms you. It drives back the funk. Especially when made from homemade bouillon cubes.
Like I talked about recently I don’t like store bought bouillon cubes. They have all kinds of junk in them I don’t like. I have looked all over for better ones and have not found any. The solution is homemade bouillon cubes. Not the little rocks you get in the store but real ones. They are easy and good for you too.
I’ve been busy with the tiny house lately. I have a lot to do in a little time. I have to be moved in by December first. Before I move in I need to finish the insulation and get the walls up. That’s about two weeks from now. We were also trying to beat the weather. A cold snap finally came through. Right now in sunny TN it’s a chilly 21° F.
This winter might be as cold as they are saying it will be. Getting the insulation done in the tiny house done is critical. I need it to keep out the cold and keep the heat in.
When you do something long enough you take it for granted. You get sloppy. Food storage is no exception. From time to time we need to step back. Today we go back to basics on food storage. We look at the rules to success. To some this is old news. To others this is just what you need. Whether you are new to prepping and feeling lost or a seasoned pro today’s post is for you. Proper food storage is the backbone to survival.
This week on the Survivalpunk podcast we tackle a very important issue. An issue that has become a growing epidemic. The is Autoimmune Diseases. I remember a time when I had never heard of one. When I didn’t know a single person that had one. Now the list of friends with failing health is getting longer and longer. I have tried to help where I can. Sadly most are not willing to do what is necessary.
In our society people want an easy fix. They do not what to stop eating their fast food. They want a pill to fix their problems. Taking charge of your own health is too much for many. There are those that do. They are sick of being sick. They take responsibility for their health. They change diets. Eat fermented foods. Drink things like water keifer. Improve sleep. They tinker and explore. In many cases with hard work they cure incurable diseases.
