One of the good positive things about being on GAPS is that most of us probably shop in bulk so we don't run to the grocery store every day. We also know how to cook so we could make meals for days in a pinch since we aren't dependent on boxed mixes, frozen foods or fast food restaurants. I think so long as we had access to water, we could probably make due in a short term disaster. Some sources recommend that you have three gallons of water on hand for each person in your family. I think that's a great place to start in being prepared to survive in a disaster.
Today I want to share some of my favorites from the Ultimate Survival Bundle. I've had a chance to look through most of the resources and there is such a wealth of information included. 46 e-books and videos, plus over 20 bonus items, plus the 11-in-1 survival credit card tool.
Here's the thing… if you buy this bundle, you may want to figure out which ones are the most important to you and print them out. Because very often in time of disaster, there is no electricity, and therefore the electronic books would be of no use.
Without further adieu, here are my favorites:
The Untrained Housewife’s Guide to Getting Prepared eBook is a beginner’s manual for how to get started feeling more confident and self-reliant during life’s unexpected happenings. From emergency grab-and-go bags, to a 30-day food plan, this book will walk you through all the elements to consider. If you’ve thought about trying to get better prepared and develop an emergency plan, this is the book for you! By Robin Egerton with Angela England.
This e-book is perfect for someone who wants to be prepared and needs help getting started. I was amazed at the depth of information in this e-book. Robin and Angela tell you how to get started step by step. This is definitely one that I will be printing out and going through to be more prepared.
The Foraging Companion Home Guide lists over 300 common wild and naturalized edible plants of temperate North America. Icons and color-coding allow quick access to essential information about edible parts and how to consume, and caution notes help you to stay safe. Some 50 plants are featured in greater detail (including medicinal and other use) and include distribution maps, calendar and photos. Cross-reference with a Botanical-to-English name list or search lists of edible parts of all 300+ plants. By Judy Pilawa.
I know of a few plants that are edible in our area, and that is because we had goats. I had to identify what grew on our property to keep them safe, as goats will eat plants that are poisonous if they don't know any better. This e-book will definitely come in handy!
Solar Cookery: Everything Under the Sun eBook teaches everything on solar cooking; making ovens, using the oven, recipes and more. Once you discover how easy and enjoyable solar cooking can be, the sun's energy will no doubt become your favorite way to cook. Solar cooking is addictive; this is the perfect companion book to Steven Harris's Sunshine to Dollars (also in this collection). By Beth Halacy.
We live in the Arizona desert and shame on us that we don't know how to utilize the sun to cook our meals! I have been wanting to learn how to cook with a solar oven, and this e-book looks like it is just what I need. Solar ovens work by harnessing the sun and you can even cook during the winter from what I understand!
Dehydrating eBook Got a dehydrator just sitting there and want to put it to use… finally? Author Wardee Harmon shows you how to dehydrate virtually every food group — fruits, veggies, broth, meats, beans, grains, eggs [affiliate link], dairy, herbs, mother cultures, and more… Dried foods are lightweight, portable, take up less space, and store very well. Learn how to make them part of your food storage plans. By Wardee Harmon.
I do have a dehydrator and use it occasionally. I seem to go in spurts with dehydrating and it has a lot to do with stocking up on vegetables when they are on sale or we end up with more than we need. I would love to have lots of dehydrated foods on hand and this book will help me figure out how to do almost anything. Jerky is a real favorite around here and I can't wait to try Wardee's recipe! I know I would feel much better about a disaster if I had more vegetables stored. The nice thing about dehydrated vegetables is they are light and don't take up a lot of space.
These e-books are just four of the 46 resources that are available in the Ultimate Survival Bundle. The retail value of the products is over $700 but you can get them all for just $29.
