The ease, convenience and fresh taste of putting a meal in a jar is quite popular amongst preppers, campers, outdoorsmen and busy people.  While these are practical and beautiful in canning jars, they easily work in bags for hiking and camping trips.  But for long-term storage, vacuum sealing and oxygen absorbers are a must.  With these meals, you simple add them to boiling water.  No other ingredients are needed.  Better and healthier than one-skillet box meals!

What is TVP?
TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein) is an excellent protein source that is easy to store and use. TVP is made from soy flour that has had the soy oil extracted. It is cooked under pressure, then extruded and dried. TVP is high in fiber and low in fat, making it ideal for food storage and everyday use. Because TVP is not made from meat, it does not run the same contamination risk from bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella. TVP is soy based and perfect for those on a vegetarian diet.

Thrive TVP Options

TVP, textured vegetable protein didn’t sound very appealing to me.  At least not if there were butcher shops still serving up freshly killed protein like God intended.  But I posted a piece on having it as a back-up option if SHTF,TVP, Is It An Option.”  So I ordered some ham and Taco TVP from Thrive.  I will tell you about the Taco TVP for purposes of space.  But I will tell you about the yummy ham fried rice I made with the ham TVP and share that recipe in my next posting.

With the Taco TVP, I made small taco cups from those little taco-salad looking chips. The presentation was very pretty, especially the mini taco’s.  But the truth was in its flavor.  I gathered the grandbabies, neighbors and MrPrepperPenny.  To our delight, it was all very good.  Really.  Very good.  If we hadn’t known it was TVP, we would not have known.

It has gotten harder to find quiet time to write here on my sweet little blog.  Between the garden, this blog, growing and learning my Thrive business while creating websites and social networking for it has all been keeping me busy enough for three of me.  But don’t mistake a lag in postings for having neglected, or even slowing down on my preparations.  Oh, contraire!  I stay true to prepping each and every day!  For me, prepping is as natural as breathing.  The problems that I fear so much have not gotten any better.

English: Scott Walker, 45th Governor of Wisconsin

Our Symbol Of American’s Taking Back Control

The economy is still a disaster.  We still have unacceptably high unemployment even with fuzzy counting by this administration.  The housing market is no better.  America’s debt continues to rise and I watched our POTUS mention more stimulus! This country’s leading law official, U.S. Attorney General, Eric Holder is playing political games before Congress while a brave border agent lies in his grave and a family continues to grieve.  We have a government attack against the very basic principles of the catholic church’s position on human life, jeopardizing freedom of religion.  And the cherry on the top?  Planned Parenthood now has a facility in a school!  We can talk about these things until we are blue in the face, but I realize the “Hope & Change” which will work best for my family is in my pantry.  But I can not contain my joy for Governor Scott Walker and Wisconsin’s victory over the heavy-handed tactics of the big unions! I’ll admit, it does give me hope for November.  But let’s get back on message here. (more…)

PrepperPennys Shelf Reliance Store

PrepperPenny
Independent Consultant

*******

When I started prepperpenny.com blog, it was purely from the position of sharing my own adventures and experiences in becoming self-sufficient and reliant with my family, friends and followers. I am devoted and committed to doing all I can to cut my family’s food costs, find alternatives to processed food and learn methods of feeding my family without relying on commercially produced food. I feel a strong calling to have a sufficient supply of food in my home regardless of what emergency may emerge, be it natural disaster or manmade.

In this journey, I began buying a variety of food from companies who offer shelf-stable, nutritious food as a back up. But there was one brand, Thrive freeze-dried foods I was most impressed with. The flavor was outstanding and I found I began to use it in everyday cooking. Aside from the great flavor and variety, another way they were different from others is that they have a program which allowed me to order as much food as I want and held it in a que, The Q. I then set a budget of how much I could spend each month.  I began receiving food from The Q every month and stayed within the budget I allotted! It didn’t take long for me to see my shelves filling up.  I was so happy.

And because I want to help others to build a home store with good tasting food, I looked deeper and I took it upon myself to contact the parent company, Shelf Reliance about linking their website through this blog.  I spoke to an exceptionally nice consultant who lives several states away from me here in Washington. After talking to her and doing my due diligence (talking to Mr. PrepperPenny), I decided to become a consultant, too. Check out this short clip which tells a bit about the emergency products, shelving system and Thrive food.

So you will begin to see Thrive and Shelf Reliance references and logo’s on my site which will link you to my online website for this business venture. Please believe me when I tell you that I am doing this for two reasons,  to advance my food supply preparations and offer resources to help you do the same for your family. Plus, I really believe Thrive foods is the best company of its’ kind.

Start Building Your Own Store At HomeI was going to post a review of the products I had begun accumulating and tell you how wonderful their food was. But while I have prepped for a couple of years, my blog is only a few weeks old and I haven’t gotten to post a lot of what will eventually be here. Because the purpose of this blog is to share my experiences with you, I would have been remiss to not write about the food I am storing, how I use that food and share recipes with you. The only difference will be that recipes I post will now show the Thrive products I use. And, of course there will be the logo and links to my online store.

I’m very excited and hope I can help you to advance your own home store. And if my plan appeals to your goals to offset your costs to build your food storage and you would like to learn about becoming a consultant as well, just click here to see what Shelf Reliance offers. I look forward to answering any questions you might have. Below is a video which will explain why I am so sold on Thrive food. I believe the benefits of storing Thrive foods will work for any family who is building a food supply. For my family, the peace of mind and security of eating so well during difficult times is irresistible.
