Food Storage

Super Excited!

First, I have to have a HUGE Shout Out to Patricia! 

She wrote to me at the end of March to say:

“I've been a reader of your blog for around 4 months and I would like first of all to say that I really enjoy it. I’ve recently had some problems with my eyes which effects my reading ability. Thereby I've a favor to ask. Is it possible for you to add Podcast audio version of your articles? It would be very useful for people like me or others who like to listen to your content.”

Well, readers, I am going to start a Podcast in the next few weeks! Had to order a few items that I will need to get everything started but I should be all set in about 2 weeks. I will keep blogging as well because some folks prefer that as well. As soon as its ready to launch, you will be the first to know!

How many of you follow us on Instagram (amp3prep)? Really excited about this too, I will be posting on this platform on a regular basis so I hope that you will follow along. We also have a Facebook Page and Twittertoo! So many social media spots but it’s really fun!

I have to order a few items for the podcast so it will be a couple of weeks before I am up and running but you will be the first to know. Invite your friends and following along. The podcast will be based on Practical Preparedness for the everyday person and finding items on a budget. Since 1992, we have been into preparing and collecting items that we have and use. This blog has given me a way to share knowledge and the podcast will allow me to have guests that really know about the industry as well as products they recommend. 

My husband, David is a ER Physician and one of two Physicians on the Hospital Disaster Community. He mentioned that they are planning a luncheon using Freeze Dried Food and I immediately thought of my favoriteChicken Tortilla Soup from Honeyville. I have made this before and it’s really a hearty and satisfying soup

I hope that in the weeks to come, you will send me some topics that you would like to see in my Podcast. Really excited about this new chapter in the life of Amp3 as well as working with amazing people on the road to better Preparedness.

Starting With Week Two!

With the beginning of every new year, comes new possibilities and resolutions that we try to achieve. We start of the year with a list to lose weight, read more, save more money and the list goes on and on. This year is no different then the years before. The possibilities for this year could endless but you should have a plan in order to achieve some or even all of them. 

This year 2017, we are staring off the year with a better plan then last year so we will see how it goes. It's the second week of the new year and our list starts with storing more food. As the months go by I will be sharing with you, our readers as to what were add this week or month. 

Starting today, January 4th, 2017 we are adding more food storage to our pantry. . The item that I love best is Honeyville. From Bakery Products, Fruits, Vegetables, Gluten Free, Flours, Grains and on and on. Honeyville has the best tasting and long-term freeze dried food storage and more. Set a budget from $50 or more and use that to add to your preparedness every month.

Now, you might say that's not the best way to buy food and you might be right, however with a 25 year shelf life, you really can't go wrong. We started purchasing Honeyville over 4 years ago and will continue to do so from today and moving forward. You see, you can never have enough food and with winter here and snow on the ground it's better to order online.

We are saving $$ for the next item,  as they are expensive but hope to order one of these by the middle to the end of the year.  The Harvest Right Food Dehydrator is manufactured in the USA and uses food that either you grow or have bought. Watch this video to learn more. 

Canning and Preserving will be essential for your long term food storage as well. Start collecting Quart and Pint jars and lids to have for canning later in the summer. Look for deals on these now as they might go up in price once the season gets under way. Look at your local bookstore for books and magazines on canning and preserving. More on this at a later date.
