Mother Nature's Pantry!

     If you were lost in the wild or in any situation where the food supply was low, it would be some life saving info to know what Mother Nature has in the pantry! Also, in her medicine cabinet! I'll be researching foods in the wilderness and some of their medicinal uses and adding more as I go. Here's a few to get us started!

Dandelions 
Eaten:  Completely Edible. As salad or cooked. Best when younger. Slightly bitter as the mature. High in beta-carotene.

Medical:  General Stimulant especially for urinary organs.


Clovers
 Eaten:  Raw or cooked. Flowers are best tasting. High in Vit C. !Don't overindulge! Clovers can cause bloating eaten in high amounts!

Medicinal:  Tea from flowers provide cough releif. Ingest for increased fertility or for ease of menopausal symptoms.


Broad Leaf Plantain
Eaten:  Younger, tender leaves can be eaten raw as a salad. Older, tougher leaves can be cooked in a stew or soup. Small seeds can be ground into flour substitute. High in Calcium, Vitamins A,C, and K.

Medicinal:  Poultices can be made from leaves for topical analgesic, anti-inflamitory, and weak antibiotic.


There's way more and will be adding soon. Remember to "Hit that Follow button" to come back and brush up!

Cant wait to test my Steel!!!

 Im so excited! So here's the deal! My wife ordered some catalogs for us to flip through. When they came I flipped through a few before I came across this "Cold Steel" catalog. I flipped it open and I was like... Jackpot! All their stuff is down right awesome!
    Then Two discs fell out of the catalog. So i popped the first one in and What can I say? Their demos are crazy awesome! They have a great price range and selection! I had to get something. So I started with the Bowie style machete by Cold Steel! When it gets here ill share what I get! I have high hopes! If any if their products are half as good as the ones they were using on the video, they'll be awesome. I have high expectations and just cant wait!


Starting fire with Flint, striker, lint!

Dont forget to follow!
