In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you get to meet the inspiring Tammy Trayer of Mountain Woman Journals. Tammy, along with her husband and son, live off-grid in Idaho. They love and live survival and preparedness, and they love and serve God in everything they do. Tammy and I visited about their experience of building their off-grid home while living in a wall tent for 8 months, about their collection of antique hand-powered tools, about the gluten-free and casein-free diet they follow for her son’s autism, and much, much more… Get to know Tammy through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast!

Tip of the Week
Measure sticky honey or sweeteners after first using your measuring cup to measure liquid oils (melted coconut oil or olive oil). Voila! No sticky mess and the honey comes out fast, rather than needing to be scraped and prodded to release its hold. I learned this tip ages ago from my friend Vickilynn Haycraft of Real Food Living. Thanks, Vickilynn! 🙂
