From Storage to Stovetop: Freeze Dried Kale and Spinach

From Storage to Stovetop
In this installment of From Storage to Stovetop we are featuring Freeze-Dried Spinach and Freeze-Dried Kale and showing you exactly how WE use them in our kitchens.

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 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…
