You can lower your grocery bills by over 50%. And while saving money, you can also improve your health, improve the safety of your food, save the environment, save fuel, and, most important of all, save your children from some of the pitfalls of today’s society. You can do all this while you slow down the pace of life and enjoy time together as a family.

Feeding Your Family in a Fried Economy will take you, step by step, along this journey. Each step completed will shave more off your grocery bill. You can take this journey at your own pace, and stop at whatever point you choose. Written in workbook style, it allows you to record your plans and progress online, using specially designed spreadsheets in Google Documents.

Author and dietitian, Denise Hansen, is your guide on this journey. With her professional experience in teaching nutrition and cooking, and her personal experience in self-sufficient living, she provides you with the understanding you need to make the changes you want. She also shares her favorite websites for reliable information on a wide variety of food topics, so you can tailor your solutions to your family’s particular situation.

This book is one of a series, titled Unshackled UnChef, designed to release you from the chains of the high-priced supermarket and empower you to prepare tasteful, healthy meals without undue effort or expertise.

Sobre o autor

Take someone who was raised in the suburbs, give her an advanced education, drop her in the middle of Montana, and see what happens! She learns to love the soil, knows how to make do, knows how to make things “from scratch,” and loves to share this passion with others. Denise Hansen grew up on Long Island and then attended Brigham Young University, where she received both a BS and MS in nutrition. Then she and her husband moved to Bigfork, Montana, where she learned a whole new way of life. Ten years later, a move to a remote corner of northeastern Washington State continued her newfound rural lifestyle. Most of her work as a registered dietitian has been teaching, from children through seniors, concepts of nutrition or hands-on cooking. But most of her time was spent raising a family and producing food at home. As year 2000 approached, people began asking her how to prepare for possible food emergencies, and her first book, Eating Off the Grid - storing and cooking foods without electricity, was published in 1999. As of 2011, it is being republished as a series of four ebooks, with updated information and many photograph-enhanced instructions, under the series title, Unshackled UnChef. Her latest work, Feeding Your Family in a Fried Economy, is a workbook that takes the reader step by step, gradually releasing you from dependence on supermarket foods and prices, and saving from 30% to 50% or more on grocery bills. Hansen will soon be addressing the production side of eating, with eBooks on gardening and eating from your harvest year round. With all of us making changes in how we feed our families we WILL make a difference.

Chapter 1 - Introduction

In the years since writing Eating Off the Grid - storing and cooking foods without electricity, I have realized that, for many people, there was a big gap between where they were and where Eating Off the Grid began. It was difficult for them to make the great leap it would take to actually eat off the grid.

Our world has also changed drastically since then, and there are new reasons to look at changing the way we eat. Food safety, from both chemicals and pathogens, has become more of a concern. The economic downturn has decreased our incomes, while the price of food continues to increase dramatically. People are more environmentally aware of where their food comes from, how it is packaged, and the amount of fossil fuel it takes to grow it and get it here. Perhaps the most important change of all has been the increasing isolation of family members from each other, as electronics of all types connect us to people or fantasy in far away places.

What You Can Expect

Feeding Your Family in a Fried Economy addresses those issues and bridges the gap, to bring more families closer to the place where they can really eat off the grid - the food supply grid, in this case. In this work, I am not addressing whether you use electricity to store and cook your food. Rather, I am trying to gradually release you from the chains of the supermarket in order to obtain your food more locally. Your final goal is to eat basic foods, grown as locally as possible and processed as little as possible. In doing so, you will save money, improve the safety of your food, save the environment, save fuel, and, most important of all, save your family.

Perhaps another name for this book could be Nurturing Your Family in a Fried Society. Taking the steps in this book will take time, effort, and teamwork. It cannot be accomplished by edict, but rather by family members discussing, compromising, sharing, and working together. The results will pay off in so many ways. Mentoring your children in adult living skills and working together as partners to accomplish real goals will forge relationships that will last a lifetime.

On the other hand, depending on your personal goals, you may use only certain parts of this book. If your main goal right now is only to lower your grocery bill, then the first few chapters will do the trick. If you have environmental concerns, you may continue a little farther. If, however, you want to improve the safety of your food supply and the strength of your family, you will eventually want to make it all the way through the final chapter. The choice is yours, and you can change your mind along the way.

This Book as a Springboard

This book includes many topics that, in themselves, could make an entire book. My intent is not to give you all the information you will need to accomplish all you plan, but to provide you with a framework, and to point you towards where you may go to find that information. Each family’s situation is unique, so it would be impossible for me to address everyone’s needs. My intent, instead, is to empower you to begin seeking for yourselves to find your own unique answers. In the end, you will be more successful and your solutions more personalized.
