All About Wheat Grinders {{NEW PODCAST}}

Wheat grinders are one of the staple appliances that people need to own if they are planning to actually USE the foods they are storing for emergencies.

20/20 WonderMill Promotion and Giveaway

Giveaways, Grain Mills
If you have been following our blog for long, you will know that we LOVE our WonderMills. They really changed our whole perspective on long term food storage. The Wonder Junior Deluxe is an incredibly powerful and fast hand grinder for a mid-range price. You can use it for powerless emergencies, for daily use, or just when you need to grind something that won't work in an electric mill like oily nuts and seeds or cracked grains. The WonderMill Electric is the quietest, fastest, and cleanest of all the mills we tested and we have been recommending them to family, friends, and blog readers for 3 years now. We love these mills and so many of our readers do too. We have a fun 20/20 promotion and giveaway we are…

The "Food Storage" Diet

Grains, Healthy Food Storage, Jodi's Progress, Recipes, Recommended Products
My baby will be 7 weeks old tomorrow. Wow does time fly. As any mom knows, losing the baby weight can be quite a torturous process. I knew I didn't want to go on some sort of crazy fad diet to lose the weight, so I decided to go with just eating healthy and exercising. That means lots of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and lean meat (i.e. chicken). Basically no processed foods, very little fat, and no refined sugar ... if you know my love of treats this basically equals NO FUN! ;) But he was worth it! And the best part is I am using TONS of food storage while I'm at it. While this "diet" is very healthy, it can also be a bit of a pain…

This week, we're extending the Extreme Food Storage Makeover to Grandma Lori's daughter Jasmine! She is Jodi's little sister, and Julie's sister-in-law. Jasmine has always been into cooking. She has made her own little recipe book and everything. When she kept hearing her big sisters talk about how whole grains are healthier, she wanted to learn about it... Since the Wondermills are on sale for the summer, Grandma Lori took advantage and bought one so now we get to share some fun recipes with the family. If you're new to this project, visit our Grandma Lori Makeover Page for the full scoop, and see the journey as it has progressed so far. Watch the video as Julie shows Jasmine how to grind wheat, and other grains to make Jasmines regular…

Setting up Grandma Lori’s WonderMill Wheat Grinder

Extreme Food Storage Makeover, Grains, Long Term Food Storage, Wheat
When we started the Extreme Food Storage Makeover for Grandma Lori early this year, we knew exactly what we were going to do.....NOT! Well, we knew how we were going to do her ePrep stuff, and we knew how to tackle the 3 month supply. We were secretly a little concerned about how we would go about her Long Term Food Storage. If you're new to this project, visit our Grandma Lori Makeover Page for the full scoop, and see the journey as it has progressed so far. Anyways, we were worried Grandma Lori might not be into baking bread, and grinding wheat the way we have come to love. What we saw happen though, was so exciting. As we used our food storage more, she got curious. She was…

Grandma Lori’s Exciting New Purchase!

Extreme Food Storage Makeover, Long Term Food Storage
We're SO excited to get started on the next phase of the Extreme Makeover Food Storage Edition with Grandma Lori. The first few steps of getting an Emergency Plan, and Three Month Supply weren't too hard, but we were worried this part would be a "harder sell" since Grandma Lori's original plan was to just store freeze-dried meals and call it good. However, as Grandma Lori has seen us use our "Long Term" Food Storage more and more lately, her interest has perked. She didn't have a wheat grinder yet so the concept of using all that long term food storage was a bit daunting and not too exciting. Well the good news is: Grandma Lori got one at this great sale priceand we're so excited to hit the road…

All About Wheat Grinders (Grain Mills)

Grain Mills, Grains
We have had a few readers ask us why we chose to recommend the WonderMill Grain Mills and even become an authorized dealer for them. We decided to give you a break down of the research we did on wheat grinders/grain mills to show you how we determined that they are our favorites.
