Gluten Free Yellow Cake MixGluten Free Diet  (Feb 6, 2014)

There are three major health reasons for a gluten free diet.

The first is to battle and overcome celiac disease. Celiac disease is a digestive condition that is brought about by the intake of the protein gluten, such is found in breads, pastas, muffins, cookies, and other foods containing barley, wheat, or rye.

Gluten intolerance is another major health reason. This can be similar to the celiac disease but without causing damage to the intestine. Fatigue, anxiety, and depression are associated to gluten intolerance.

Wheat FieldAs Fall Approaches  (Sept 25, 2013)

Tennyson wrote, “In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love.”

I write, “In the fall, a prepper’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of food storage.”

Why? Because fall is harvest time. Time honored tradition dictates that it is the customary time to consider what you will store for the coming year. More...

Grasshopper & Ant​Fables and Food Storage   (Sept 11, 2013)

If you’ve read anything about storing food and water for an emergency, now popularly called “prepping,” you’ve undoubtedly been presented with the notion that storing food is a time honored tradition, one that’s “as old as the hills.” But what you may not have learned is how far back that practice actually goes.

If you envisioned pioneers and homesteaders from two centuries ago when you thought of old timey ways of storing food, you were way off.  More...

Fresh Bread in Oven​The Aroma Factor  (Sept 3, 2013)

Who is not enchanted by the aroma of freshly baked bread, the rich smell of brewing coffee or the tantalizing odor of frying bacon?

I call that “the aroma factor.” It’s the effect that good food can have on the senses.

We all experience it. It seems to warm us, draw us in and cause us to experience pleasant thoughts.  More...

​Your Family's Emergency Kit is Probably a Disaster   (Aug 27, 2013)

Great video and article from CNN about being prepared.

My mother-in-law and I talk about nearly everything. But when I mentioned to her recently that I was working on a story about emergency preparedness, I realized that's one thing we've never discussed -- even though she lives nearby and would certainly factor into our family plan.  More...

Kids​Versatile Food Storage   (Aug 27, 2013)

Normally, you don’t think of emergency food storage in the context of day-to-day living. But perhaps you should. It seems that the time, effort and expense of laying aside a substantial amount of stored food for emergencies focuses our efforts narrowly.

But that should not be so. There are occasions when all that stored food can come in handy, even when there is no crisis.


Sugar Cookies​Putting The Sweet in Food Storage   (Aug 20, 2013)

If you’re like most of us, you have a bit of a sweet tooth. All those yummy goodies you enjoy from time to time require sugar: cookies, cakes, breads, muffins and even pancakes.

In keeping with the maxim, “store what you eat,” any food storage should therefore include sugar. It’s one of the so called “staples” that a comprehensive food storage program demands. You simply can’t do without it.  More...

Popcorn​The Miracle of Shortening and Butter Powders  (Aug 13, 2013)

One thing you probably can’t go without in your emergency food storage is shortening or butter, especially if you plan on baking much. Either one provides that light, fluffy and flakey texture you look for in your baked goods.

Unfortunately, both butter and shortening are problematic when it comes to long term storage. They tend to go rancid rather quickly, requiring frequent rotation to keep your stash fresh. 

Until now, that meant tracking one more thing in your food storage.  More...

Garlic Bread​Making Better Bread  (Aug 7, 2013)

You either already love making bread or you’re thinking about trying it. Either way, here’s a little trick that all commercial baking professionals know that will reward you with excellent bakery-like results every time.

One caution: If you are gluten intolerant, you’ll not want to consider using these because they do contain concentrated amounts of gluten. If you don’t have gluten problems, however, it’s pretty darn wonderful.  More...

I need to talk to those of you who have issues with gluten. You know who you are.

There. Now that the lucky who have no problems with gluten or think they have no problems with gluten are gone, we can talk.  More...

Are you prepared?​Who You Calling "Prepper?"  (July 23, 2013)

Last week, for the first time, someone called me a prepper . . . and I don’t know how to feel about it.

You see, when I first heard that term, “prepper,” it was used derogatively, belittling the “loons” that felt it necessary to put in a store of food and necessities against a crisis. So, I naturally didn’t like the word. I was one of those “nuts.” I’ve stored food and water for years. More...

Moving Food​Moving Food  (July 18, 2013)

When it came time to relocate, many years ago now, a few of my friends and neighbors turned out to help move furniture and such out of the house and into the van. As the moving progressed from room to room, we eventually found ourselves looking at shelves of stored food I had accumulated in case of an emergency.

Exasperated and more than a little tired after packing for an hour or so, one neighbor blurted, “I’ve never understood why people would move food.

No, we’re not going to discuss the Seven Virtues or Seven Vices. After all, Augason Farms is an emergency food storage manufacturing company, not a humanitarian society.

4 Person 1 Year Kit​How Long Can You Survive  (June 13, 2013)

Emergencies and catastrophes come in all sizes, shapes and lengths. They’re like Forrest Gump’s description of life: “You never know what you’re gonna get.” So, planning for all possibilities might be overkill.

While the crisis itself is the first and most immediate challenge, however devastating that might be, it is survival of the aftermath that usually presents the greatest challenge. Thus, the duration of what follows the catastrophe or crisis, the aftermath, that requires your primary consideration.


72 Hour 2-Person Kit​Survival  (June 5, 2013)

A killer storm left two homeowners isolated when a flash flood washed out the road leading to their home, severed water pipes and downed power lines. They had to survive without heat, water or light until help could arrive . . .

Stranded on a remote river when their boat’s motor stopped running, a man and his son had been enjoying what should have been an uneventful daylong fishing trip. They drifted slowly downstream, without control, for hours before a lone bystander noticed their predicament and raced to notify authorities . . .  More...

Small Cans​Small Cans, Big Deal  (May 22, 2013)

Everyone who’s into emergency food storage knows about the virtues of food stored in institutional size cans and sealed buckets, whether they are the four or six gallon variety. Those containers are used nearly universally in the industry because they are the most effective for preserving food items over prolonged periods of time.

But in recent years, Augason Farms has introduced a new, smaller sized container we call the “everyday size” can. More...

Emergency Backpack​The Grab 'N' Go Emergency Kit, A Prepping Cornerstone  (May 15, 2013)

Jump start your emergency food storage plan by beginning with “emergency rations”—what is typically called a “grab ‘n’ go” package.

What is it?

Well, such a kit or pack typically holds just enough food, water and other items needed to get you through a short term crisis. 

White SugarYour Personal In-Home Convenience Store  (May 8, 2013)

There are big emergencies and little emergencies.

A big emergency would be a flood, earthquake or storm that leaves you stranded in your home for any length of time. A small emergency would be running out of sugar right in the middle of whipping up icing for that birthday cake you’re baking for the party in 15 minutes . . . and you still aren’t yet dressed for the occasion.

Yikes! Now there’s an emergency. More...

Water Storage KitWater Storage: When Nothing Less Will Do  (April 23, 2013)

It’s the most peculiar and astonishing molecule in nature. Made from two gasses on the Periodic Table—hydrogen and oxygen—it behaves like nothing else. And it’s absolutely essential to life.

We’re talking water, the most precious natural resource we have next to air.

So when it comes to storing it, we should not be surprised to learn that it requires its own set of considerations. More...
