Yes, I'm still alive and NO, Big Brother hasn't shut us down. hee hee   I've received several e-mail inquiries regarding the lack of recent posts.  I had a death in my family two weeks ago which required me to drive cross country in order to make the funeral in time. The trip was really rough on me physically as I'm still dealing with Fibromyalgia and a couple of other issues. I was in such a hurry to get out the door in time that I failed to bring everything I needed to stay on top of those...

Part 1 of 2 Here it is...everything you need to know about storing oils and fats   Every chef knows the value of having the right oils and fats on hand in order to ensure unlimited culinary possibilities and any nutritionist who’s worth anything understands the necessity for quality fats in our diet. But most of us face a dilemma in purchasing the right kinds of oils which provide us with long shelf-life, affordability, and taste. I’m sure that most of my Preparedness Pro friends have been...

Should essential oils be a part of your health and wellness care supplies? Is there a big difference between a bottle of essential oils that costs $90 and a bottle that costs $12? Is there a way to determine whether or not I’m really getting a quality product? Are they safe to use without side effects? Is there a big difference between essential oils and dried herbs of the same name?     Preparedness Pro's Essential Oil Collection All Rights Reserved Copyright 2012 Preparedness Pro     The...

With today's escalating meat prices, I thought it would be timely to share an alternative protein source that you can easily raise yourself just about anywhere, with only 10 minutes a day of effort, and at a minimal amount of expense--Rabbits!   Rabbit meat can be used in the same manner as chicken, even going so far as frying it as you could chicken. It’s also a great source of high protein and low fat, even more important in the present economic stage, rabbits are very inexpensive to raise...

“If you don’t like the information about freeze-dried food that’s out there, then all you have to do is dig deep enough or pay steep enough to find information which refutes your information”, right?*  Now, what does this have to do with preparedness? Well, another ridiculous preparedness myth has come across my desk recently, and I found it to be so misleading in its information that I just had to offer up some well-known facts and science to set the record straight.  So, for the record,...

Yes, I’ve been a bit absent lately. But I have a really good reason and perhaps you might even be happy with the fruits of what I’ve been working on. If you haven’t heard, I’m a big proponent of using essential oils for a myriad of health care and wellness needs. They are the oldest known forms of medicinal aid we have on record and they are still being used regularly by medical professionals in Europe and parts of Asia.  My problem though, while researching them for over a decade, was that I...

Today I posted a question for our Facebook readers. “What is one aspect of preparedness that you feel comfortable with right now?”  Unfortunately, for the most part the answers were riddled with regrets and superimposed labels of failure. I was a bit saddened to read some of the responses because the “cure” is so incredibly easy and yet there were many who were beating  themselves up for not having "arrived" at the perfect state of preparedness. First of all, I suspect that for those people...

I suppose I have to address this issue sooner or later. What do I think about buying gold and silver to hedge against a financial collapse? Personally, I’d pass. Among the 10 Principles of Preparedness, the Principle of Financial Preparedness is Number Nine in order of prioritization. If times get so tough that one feels like they have to rely on gold and silver, there are a heck of a lot worse problems that will come to the forefront which will have nothing to do with traditional currency....

Remember when I told you about how great sprouts are nutritionally?  A seed can increase its nutritional content by 500-600% just with sprouting. Just a little water and 48-60 hours of patience, and you’ve got amazing, live, fresh nutrition!  Well, the fermentation of foods is a very similar science. You can take a wonderfully nutritious food such as fruits, vegetables, grains, meats and whole dairy products and compound their nutritional value through fermentation AND do so in such a way that...

Desperation Reigns Supreme hard money lending photo c/o peachstonecapital.com Many years ago I frequently rubbed elbows with the hard-money world of commercial lending.  As an expert educator in the world of commercial finance, I simply could not have a functioning knowledge of the industry without being exposed to what was known as “hard-money lending.”  Hard-money loans typically come with some steep prices.  The first fee one would usually have to pay is an “application fee.” This...
