Don't live in the real world... homestead instead!
In 2008, the world stood on the brink of economic collapse. Some say, however, that the U.S. government's intervention only "kicked the can" down the road, paving the way for the possibility of an even worse financial meltdown in the future. As government debt in the U.S. spirals out of control, is a day of reckoning at hand when Americans will be faced with exhorbitant food prices due to hyperinflation? Many believe so and are preparing now. To learn more about the possibilities, visit the Economic Collapse Blog and the National Inflation Association.
How to get 3 meals from one chicken
by HappyHomestead -- Part of self-sufficient living and enjoying the homestead lifestyle is learning how to maximize your resources. The same is true whether you live on your own farm and grow your own food, or if you live in a city or suburb and buy most of your food. So, how do you get three meals (or more) from one chicken? No, we're not talking about eggs -- We're talking about using that one chicken to nourish you for three separate meals. If you raised that chicken yourself, no doubt you'll want to honor him or her by not wasting anything. And, if you bought the chicken at a grocery store, you'll want to get your money's worth.
People from all walks of life are beginning to truly care about the foods they consume, but we are still the minority in a world that worships convenience above substance. Hippies, yuppies, Christians, baby boomers... all sorts of people are starting to notice that the foods in the large chain grocery stores are missing something. What are they missing? Mother nature! What's the answer? It's simple... Grow your own delicious food.
