Self-Reliant Saturday -- Learn, Prepare, Live

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly

LEARN FROM THE PAST:
  • Look up Depression Era cookbooks and find simple recipes that use basic foods, like potatoes and onions, for meals. Click HERE for some ideas.
  • What foods grow in your area?  Look up the history of your town to find out how farmers or gardeners grew food in your area.
  •  Learn about cold storage rooms/root cellars and how food was stored without refrigeration. Click HERE for a quick overview of a root cellar.
PREPARE FOR THE FUTURE:
  • Every time you go to the store you should be buying extra food and storing it. 
  • How many long-term grains do you have stored?  
  • Do you have money in a savings account for a rainy day?
LIVE IN THE PRESENT:
  • Be grateful for the life that you have and the many wonderful blessings that occur in your life every day!
  • Use the food storage that you do have and rotate through it regularly.  Store what you eat....eat what you store!
  •  Exercise, eat healthy foods and take care of yourself.  If we did have an emergency you might have to walk a long distance, lift/carry more than you're used to, dig holes, rebuild/fix your home, manually cook a lot of food (kneading bread for 15 minutes isn't easy), work in a garden/field to grow food, etc.  Many things we're not used to physically doing in today's world.
