From Storage to Stovetop:  WHEAT

From Storage to Stovetop: WHEAT

From Storage to Stovetop, Wheat Recipes
Wheat is a huge staple in most people's food storage but it's not something that most people know how to cook with in their everyday cooking. We decided we didn't want to store things that we weren't comfortable with using so we went on a little journey to learn how to cook with wheat. This was quite an adventure for us as 8 years ago we didn't even know what wheat kernels look like! Wheat Conversions 1 cup of wheat kernels = 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat flour 1 cup of whole wheat flour = 2/3 cup of wheat kernels 1 lb of wheat kernels = 2 cups of wheat kernels Tips for Cooking With Wheat Use hard white wheat to make your wheat flour, it has less of…

Banana Split Energy Balls (Raw/Vegan/Deliciousness)

Fruit and Vegetable Recipes, Recipes
You may have seen in a few recipe posts, that I've been working towards eating a more raw vegan diet lately. It's a work in progress and I succeed about 85% of the time I'd say :) I definitely try to minimize animal products and keep the rest of my diet consisting of whole foods including lots of fruits and vegetables. It's not always easy to have healthy fresh fruits and veggies on hand every day, so I've been super grateful for my food storage foods (which I always keep upstairs for everyday use anyway) while I've been adjusting to this new way of eating. Sometimes I miss being able to have a yummy treat to just pop in my mouth when I need a little afternoon pick-me-up. Enter this…

From Storage to Stovetop: Freeze-Dried Chicken

From Storage to Stovetop
Today we are featuring Freeze-Dried Chicken (in two varieties) and showing you exactly how WE use them in our kitchens. Being able to avoid thawing, chopping, and cooking chicken is the difference in being able to get dinner on the table in less than 20 minutes versus getting desperate and having to hit a fast food restaurant. While we have had freeze-dried meats as part of our food storage for a long time, it was only recently that we really began to see the beauty of using it as part of our regular dinner planning. Chopped Chicken vs Seasoned Chicken Slices Seasoned Chicken Slices are large chunks of chicken great for soups, Hawaiian haystacks, or any chicken marinade-type recipe where you want large chunks over rice, noodles, etc. These bigger…

If you've followed our blog for a long time, you may remember when we first introduced you to a service called Deals to Meals. We have used and recommended it as a way to stock up on groceries (specifically three month supply items) at discounted prices without having to clip coupons. We totally LOVE it!

Well, Deals to Meals recently re-launched their blog (we are suckers for blog makeovers and theirs doesn't disappoint). And they are also going to be having a series of guest bloggers begin to contribute on the blog. Keep an eye out on the…
