72 Hour Kit Sale - This Week Only!

This week is National Hurricane preparedness week and Thrive Life is encouraging everyone to get prepared.  If you live in an area that is affected by hurricanes (or any seasonal events like fires or tornadoes, or even unpredictable ones like earthquakes), please take a few minutes to update your preparedness plans and supplies.  

Follow these three simple steps to make sure that you are prepared for hurricanes and other severe weather conditions:

 1.  BE INFORMED: Make sure you know the weather risks in your area and how you’ll be notified if emergencies occur.  Staying informed in an emergency is critical.  An emergency radio can be your lifeline in an emergency make sure you have new batteries and that your radio is functioning correctly.  If you don’t have an emergency radio you might consider:
Solar Link FRX 2 $47.49
Solar Link Scorpion $57.70
Dynamo Radio – Weather Band $17.90
2.  GET PREPARED: Make plans for what your family will do during dangerous conditions and put together the food and supplies you’ll need.  A well-stocked emergency kit saves time and allows for quick evacuation.  

On sale this week only are two great kits:
Providence Basic, 2 person Emergency Kit,  $95.99

Expedition Basic, 4 person Emergency Kit, $174.99

Also on sale right now is my favorite pack
2 Person Survival Pack, $79.10

3.  TAKE ACTION: During an emergency, keep calm, follow the plans you've made, and stay safe.

Easy Healthy Creamy Cheese Sauce

This a great cheese sauce recipe for Mac'n'Cheese or for a fancy sauce for vegetables.  This is so easy and versatile, it cooks up nice and creamy, plus it has the added benefits of having more fiber and protein without others even knowing it.  Healthy, easy, and yummy?  Love it!

Healthy Creamy Cheese Sauce
5 Tablespoons White Bean Flour (see this post for info)
4 Teaspoons Chicken Bouillon (whatever type you like best - vegetarian, gluten free, etc.)
1 3/4 cup water
1 cup cheese (you can use whatever cheese you like - for a shelf stable cheese try THRIVE Cheddar, reconstituted)
Optional:  I added a little garlic powder and minced onion


Add water, bean flour, and bouillon in a sauce pan.  Bring to boil over medium heat and cook for 3 minutes or until sauce has thickened, stirring frequently.

  Add cheese and stir until melted.

 And there you go.

You can use this sauce for a healthier Mac'n'Cheese (my kids devoured this!)

or use it for a sauce over veggies.

Wheat Free Cream of "Whatever" Soup

I tried this wonderful recipe today, from my friends at Food Storage Made Easy, that you all need to try.  It is perfect for your food supply because there are only 3 ingredients, all of which should be in your supply: white bean flour, bouillon, and water.  From this you can add other ingredients to make whatever cream soup you want.  And this is much healthier than regular cans of cream of whatever soups.  It is low in fat, high in fiber, a good protein source, contains no wheat (if that is a concern for you), etc.  Awesome!  I made a couple of these mixes to keep on hand.

Cream of Whatever Soup Mix using Bean Flour

Grind 1/4 cup white beans (NavyLima, etc.).  The result will be 5 Tablespoons of Bean Flour.
My Little Helper loves grinding flour for me.
 Add 4 teaspoons of chicken bouillon.

Optional ingredients: you could add dried onionsItalian seasoning, etc. for more flavor.

At this point you can store your bean & bouillon mixture in a jar or Ziploc bag for later use, or proceed directly to the next step.

To cook: In a sauce pan stir 1 3/4 cups water to your mix of 5 T of Bean flour and 4 teaspoons of bouillon. Bring to boil and cook over medium heat stirring frequently until thickened, about 3 minutes.

That's it!  Isn't that great?  Now use this for any recipe that calls for cream of whatever soup.  Be aware that this may replace your can of soup AND some or all of your milk or water for the recipe.

You can also use the above to make a variety of soups.  Just follow the above directions and add a few ingredients:

Cream of Mushroom Soup -add about 1/2 cup mushrooms.
Cream of Celery Soup - add about 1/4 cup celery.
Creamy Potato Soup - add about 1 cup of cooked potatoes
Broccoli Cheese Soup - add 1/3 cup broccoli and 1 cup grated cheese.
Tomato Soup - add 2 cups tomato sauce (try making it from THRIVE Tomato Powder)

The possibilities are endless!
