Learn How to Make Oatmeal from Oat Groats
You don’t need to buy boxed cereal from the grocery store. It’s expensive, and manufactured cereal actually contains very little nutrition.
When making the transition from a processed foods kitchen to a traditional foods kitchen, the best thing you can do for your health and your budget is to learn how to make oatmeal from oat groats—the whole oat. I show you how in the following tutorial video.
Make Your Own Salad Dressings and Vinegar
Are you buying prepared salad dressings? Stop! Make your own. It’s so easy and economical, plus your homemade dressings will be full of nutritious ingredients. You won’t have any worrisome ingredients like highly-processed soybean oil.
Make Chicken Bone Broth and Save Money
One of the best budget-friendly things you can make in your traditional foods kitchen is roast chicken bone broth.
After you roast a chicken, save the carcass and any little scraps that you have. You can turn this treasure into a delicious and nutritious bone broth that can be the base for soups, stews, or in place of water when cooking grains. Roast chicken bone broth literally costs pennies to make!
Make Your Own Probiotic-Rich Drinks
Are you buying those fancy probiotic-rich drinks that often cost upwards of $4.00 per serving? You can stop buying these expensive drinks today by making them homemade. These types of probiotic-rich beverages are easy to make once you get the hang of it.
