Off the Grid Eating: Recipes for Survival and Enjoyment without Electricity

Off the Grid Eating: Recipes for Survival and Enjoyment without Electricity was a free kindle book when this post was written.

Whether you're a prepper, a survivalist, a camping enthusiast, a fugitive (okay, hopefully you're not a fugitive) or simply looking to get off the grid, you'll need food.

Make it good!

What is the benefit to living off the grid?

The joy of living in the present moment without the stress and craziness/ridiculousness of modern living where many aspects of your life are often dictated to you and at best, manipulated.

Being that it is such a joy living freely, preparing food is a big part of that.

In this series, you will learn various creative methods of preparing food you've bought, hunted, gathered or grown.

Skip Plemmons enjoyed the freedom of off grid living in an Arizona desert yurt for a couple of years when he wasn't vagabonding all over the country in his youth. He also practices self sufficiency on his small farm in North Georgia.

These recipes along with your free book at www.offgridlivin.com, will give you all the tools you need for a life of independent, self sufficient living and eating well while doing it.

In this book you'll learn how to prepare at an expert level:

Hoe Cakes

"Just-In-Case" Info and Reminders for Winter Survival


We have heard a lot of stories about snow mishaps during winter. We have heard and read about winter survival. We feel and think like we've mastered the dangers in this weather, but accidents are accidents, no matter how careful we may be are inevitable. Unless we are in this situation we really would not know how prepared we actually are. But winter can be fun too. Winter hiking is a popular activity during this weather. So the best thing to do is continuously understand and be aware of all possible situations in a snow mishap.

Here are trinkets of facts that are as important as the winter survival kit that you have packed on any winter trip:

Hypothermia - is a state in which our body can no longer regulate and produce enough heat needed due to a cold stressor. Hypothermia is of most important concern when trapped in a snowy weather and immediate help is not at hand. During extreme cases of hypothermia, a person can experience what is called "paradoxical undressing" in which a person may become disoriented and confused leading to removal of clothes which, in turn, causes for increase in heat loss. Needless to say, hypothermia can cause death.

The Survival Rule of 3s

In an extreme survival situation people cannot survive more than:

• 3 minutes without air

• 3 hours without shelter

• 3 days without water

• 3 weeks without food

• 3 months without hope

In spite of the dangers during winter, camping during this weather is a good source of fun for some especially those adventure seekers. To be on the safe side of it, here are some things you should remember but are often times neglected:

- You can make fire even during winter in almost anywhere. Just keep your lighter and matches away from the cold. You can use dry shredded bark or paper for the fire.

- Do not go into this activity if you are not trained and knowledgeable enough unless you are in the company of experts in winter camping. The cold weather is tough and it is no time to fool around, no room to be too confident or arrogant.

- If you are going away from the campsite and you are alone, remember not to rely on your footprints to guide you on your return. You can't also rely on trail marks they can be lost during a hard snow fall. If you are unfamiliar with the place, then do not go far alone.

- Your car is the lifeline you have in going back to civilization safely. Be careful of your keys.

- Drink enough water. This is sometimes ignored because of the cold weather.

- Bring fatty foods they are a good source of heat.

- It gets dark earlier during winter. Be sure to plan activities accordingly.

So generally, winter can be fun. Do not be wary about winter survival reminders that bombard us during this season. Anyway, as the saying goes, it is better to be safe than sorry.

Anne Hatch is an enthusiast of bizarre activities and has been enjoying several challenging and exciting adventures in decades. It is through experience that she developed her skills and is exposed to various activities such as treasure hunting, camping, and other challenging outdoor activities.

An Easy Way To Save Money

My mom sent me the above graphic a while ago. She has been doing this for the last 3 or 4 months. I have been saving mine for the start of the new year. It is called the 52 week money challenge. You start on the first week with a dollar and go up from there until the last week when you put $52.00 into the savings jar. I am going to start the first week of 2015. I will also still have my change jar where I throw all of our change into. The last time I cashed the change jar in - it had $243.56 in it.

This is something that we all should do. You can find other ways to save money here - 925 Ideas to Help You Save Money

 UNCOVER THE SECRET TO HEALTH: Natural Remedies to Heal and Safeguard Yourself No Prescription Drugs; No Health Insurance - Save Money

A message from Natural Remedies expert and best-selling health & wellness author, M. Clay Polynice

Dear Friends,

I believe the universe brings us to certain places for a reason, and you are here because you need to learn about the amazing benefits of Natural Cures & Remedies. I first began experimenting with Natural Herbal remedies around 20 years ago and have since moved away from pharmaceutical and synthetic drugs all together.

Numerous studies have shown that not only will natural remedies improve your general health; but it can also extend your life span. They harness healing powers from nature, while at the same time, do not contain chemicals that are present in drugs bought from most stores. They're effective, cheap, and are less harmful to you than store bought options.

It really makes sense to look at natural remedies as an alternative method to cure ailments such as colds and toothaches, skin problems (psoriasis and eczema), gastrointestinal problems (Chrohn’s, IBS), and even common infant health concerns (colic, teething, and diaper rash).

My journey has been blessing, my family and I have maintained optimal health and saved thousands of dollars over this period. Friend, you now have the chance to take in timeless health secrets that took me years to learn in only a few hours of reading this E-Book.


Bottom Line - You are going to get all my years of research and expertise at a bargain price so that you can apply these natural techniques and reap the benefits and rewards that they offer!

Ditch the prescription drugs, synthetic pills and find out why millions of people around the globe are moving towards NATURAL REMEDIES!


A Sneak Preview & Benefits of Natural Medicine:

✔ Natural Remedies a current alternative - The fact is prescription drugs often have more harmful side effects than they offer for the good. Natural alternatives have been around for centuries.

✔Clean:
Compared to other pharmaceutical products, you know 100% how natural home remedies are made.

✔ Natural Remedies for Seasonal Ailments – Let’s face it - Allergies and seasonal ailments can really wreak havoc for you if you do not know how to control them. Fortunately, there are ways to beat allergies and seasonal ailments that won’t leave you drowsy and tired.

✔ Natural Flu/Cold/Sinus Remedies

✔ Natural Remedies Infections- Our precious little ones are most susceptible to harmful chemicals and other impurities. This chapter shows you how to keep your bundle of joy safe, healthy, and happy!

✔ Cost-Effective:
Drugs made by large pharmaceutical companies are expensive since they are processed, advertised and marketed as commercial products. Natural, homemade remedies are much more economical to produce.

✔More Effective:
The beauty of natural home remedies is that they can treat a wide variety of illnesses.

✔Fewer Side Effects:
It's true that many over the counter medicines contain several ingredients that attack the intended ailments however they don't stop there. These medications affect your other functions and come with side effects. Since natural home remedies only contain pure medicinal purposes, their side effects are greatly minimized.

SHTF Preparedness


Step-by-Step Guide on How To Build and Equip Your Own Underground Root Cellar To Survive A Disaster


Disaster can strike at any minute. There are thousands of nuclear missiles that are ready to launch at the push of a button and any one of them could spell the end of the world. Global Warming is wreaking havoc on our climate and causing tornadoes, hurricanes, and even tsunamis. On top of all of this, there are terrorist incidents with very angry groups of hostile people taking hostages or releasing harmful toxins into the air that could easily kill you and your family in an instant if you are not prepared.

Among all these things, there are natural phenomenon that are completely out of our control as human beings-- things like asteroids, or super-volcanoes, or earthquakes. All of these things are out of our control, but rest assured, that if any of these disasters occurs, you will find that people become increasingly hostile to the rest of the population. You could easily find hostile marauders searching for food or resources should any of these disasters take place.

That's why it's so imperative that you have some sort of back-up plan to keep you and your family safe during these times of chaos that could occur at any minute.

What you need is a safe-haven. What you need is a bunker... on a budget. It needs to be equipped to withstand multiple kinds of disasters, and it also needs to be equipped to outlast a lengthy time of unrest.

The situations we will cover together are


• The basics of cellar construction.

• Design challenges

• Beginning smart construction ideas

• Starting construction process

• How to stock your cellar

• Furnishings & comfort
