Mary’s Nest 2020 Channel Update – Traditional Foods Recipes, Meal Plans, and More!

Watch the Mary’s Nest 2020 Channel Update

First, I want to wish y’all a very happy, healthy, and blessed new year!

In today’s video, I share a 2020 Channel Update with you to talk about what I have planned for this year on my website and YouTube channel! This blog post talks about some of the upcoming content, but I also have some surprises to share with you in my video update.

My thanks to all of you for subscribing to my YouTube channel. I had tremendous subscriber growth in 2019 thanks to you! If you’re a video creator, you can learn about the equipment and services that I use.

Mastering the Basics

Over the last year and a half, I have shared a lot of techniques with you for Mastering the Basics of Traditional Foods and Nutrient Dense cooking. We’ve covered a lot, including:

  • Bone Broths
  • Cultured Dairy
  • Ferments
  • Sourdough Starter and Sourdough Bread
  • Soaking and Sprouting Grains, Nuts, and Beans
  • How to make Sprouted Flour at home.

I still have a few more “Basics” planned, but I have even more in store for you!

Recipes, Meal Plans, and More!

Going into this year, I’ll be sharing lots of easy recipes for using all these nutrient-dense foods we’ve learned how to make. I’ll provide recipes and tips for both the experienced home cook as well as the newbie. We’re going to plan and make meals that are familiar in taste, but are better for you.

You, your family, and your friends will love everything you bring to the table. These meals are going to be home cooking at their best!

Just Getting Started? Don’t Worry!

If you’re still learning the basics, you can take everything at your own pace. Don’t worry – I won’t judge you! 😉

If you’ve been buying processed foods for years, the transition to a traditional foods kitchen doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time. Make it easy on yourself and introduce the preparation of new foods slowly. Don’t cause stress on your self or your budget. As I say…

Start with a Roast Chicken…even if that roast chicken is a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store.

  • The Kitchen Journal that I keep
  • How I stock my Traditional Foods Pantry
  • How I equip my Traditional Foods Kitchen
  • And more!

I look forward to reading your questions and suggestions in the video and blog comments on how I can help make the transition to a traditional foods kitchen as easy as possible for you.

    I love your video’s Mary! You explain everything in detail, the steps are easy, and you make it look doable for everyone. So far I’ve made your chicken bone broth recipe, cottage cheese, fermented carrot sticks (did not turn out well because I used too much garlic) so now fermenting carrot slices (they’re currently on day 2, without garlic-lesson learned), sauerkraut (with the granny smith apple-love it!), ACV, and plan to try more. Your sourdough starter is my next adventure I think. Up till now I’ve hesitated on the starter afraid I would not make bread often enough to make the process worthwhile. Thank you so much for your YouTube videos.
