Cheap Natural Food the Easy Way

When we look at our modern day lifestyle it’s easy to poke holes in the sustainability of it. 99% of people have no idea how to generate their own food, let alone the work or tools required to do so. The problem with this is the mentality that one of the most required substances on the planet is being hand fed to you by corporations. In most cases they have proven to give little care at the health of their products while the generate profits. This is a double edged sword and not having the knowledge or tools to create your own food can be devastating as proven by history. In many cases I was surprised to find out that raising my own or buying natural products from local farms was actually far cheaper than buying the corporate made crap.

When I first started raising my own animals I had the mentality that the only way to do it was to raise it yourself but the reality is I could trade some of my other skills or time for their product. I wouldn’t need to raise goats or cows if I could find the product I wanted. Purchasing raw milk from a local ranch turned out to actually be much cheaper than store bought milk and far healthier. The taste alone is amazing but what really blew me away is the fact it was only 70% of the price of store bought milk. Real natural food was often cheaper than store bought in many ways.

When it comes to raising animals yourself there are quite a few that require little to no time and almost no investment. From free eggs to rabbit stew it’s quite possible to provide you and your family with natural food almost all year and the only thing required is a change in mindset. The thought process of doing it yourself rather than relying on government, a corporation, or anyone else for YOUR families food and health. I can’t imagine being a father in the great depression, unable to find work, unable to create food, watching my family suffer. When the reality is with a little effort we could have been eating eggs, fresh rabbit, quail, and more as we traded extras to other farmers.

I’ve heard people say, well yeah but you need a chicken coop, or fencing, or this, or that… and the truth is you don’t really need those things. There are ways around it, or within that change of mindset, you can realize that these items you need are free, laying all over the place. I recently turned a broken refrigerator into a chicken coop and it works amazingly. It’s even insulated with a rooster or egg box! How much? Free!!! I simply cut out some wood branches as perches and slid them in where the shelves used to rest. I simply sweep it out with an old broom and it’s good to good.

Raising rabbits in cages is quite do-able almost anywhere in the world. As long as they have some shade, food, and water they are good to go. Another alternative to this, if you have some land, is free range rabbits. When provided habitat including food and shelter they will surely stick around and breed out. You will have completely free food in a matter of years all at little to no expense from you. Creating a habitat for free range rabbits also benefits local wildlife as well as any free range game birds you raise. I have had wild pheasants come in and live near my chickens and actually mate with them.

The benefits of raising them natural is quite obvious. Nutrient dense food at little to no cost. Eating raw real food completely changed my health and my reliance on corporations and government. There are endless benefits to this from your pocket book and bank account to your families health. I find it crazy it’s literally illegal to “sell” raw milk in the USA. I could even fight news articles of the government raiding farms for selling it. I have been drinking it for several months now and feel amazing when I drink it. It taste amazing, I feel the benefits. There is a very evil reason why this has been banned in the USA and why I’m thankful Mexico offers it for 10 pesos a liter. That’s right, been drinking Mexican raw milk for almost a year now and my teeth are white as snow, my bones are of steel, and my stomach problems have all but disappeared. My next project, fish in giant water tanks!

Best Way to Travel Cheap as an Adventrepeneur

Many times people make the mistake of thinking you need to be rich in order to travel, but often times that’s not the case. For some people this can be true, if you wish to stay in fancy hotels and fly first class but if you don’t mind a little adventure there are ways to accomplish the task of getting from point A to point B and have a heck of a lot of fun in between.

When it comes to traveling cheap there are three main areas that need to be covered. Food, sleep, and adventure. Often times in the adventure itself you can meet all of these requirements no problem, it just takes a little thinking outside the box.

Food
When it comes to food on the road there are many ways to find it cheaply, and sometimes even gourmet food untouched. If you are ever downtown in any city often times you will find people leaving the restaurant with an entire meal untouched inside a container. Simply asking if they are going to eat it and often times they will give it too you! Most of the time this food just get’s thrown away but in this scenario they get a sweet story and feel good about helping someone out and you get a bomb meal for free!

Another way of getting free food is by going into places and literally asking. Often times you can come out with at least a free ice cream cone from places like McDonalds. The key is to have a smile and a story and in most cases people will hook you up! This goes both ways for rides too, often times gas station workers would help me find a ride after talking to them for a while. People like to help out and it gives them a story as well.

Opening up to people and being real is the best way to get a home cooked meal too! Often times people would just invite me for a meal or cook one them selves after a conversation turned into an hour long talk. People are bored with the lives we are forced to live and their curiosity brings them out of their shell. This is when you get to have some really cool conversations with some awesome people with a free meal as well!

Sleep
If you’re not too picky you can literally sleep anywhere. Literally. If you have a nice wool blanket this makes it even easier. The same concepts apply here as when searching for food. When you open up to people and have real conversations they are actually likely to invite you to stay with them. This is one reason I stopped using CouchSurfing because the real adventures I’d have with people I meet along the way were always more crazy and fun than anything that could be planned. I found myself sleeping in the back of a pickup truck on an air mattress for five hours with my dog as we went through the long stretches of Texas.

Other times you can offer a little bit of money and people will open up their yard or extra room as well. This is one way you can get both a cheap meal and place to stay by simply offering a little bit of money. It helps everyone out and it’s more of a conversation opener than an actual proposition. People are always looking for a good story!

Adventure
The key to all of this is the adventure. When you open yourself up to the locals and their adventures, you find yourself on secluded beaches playing soccer, climbing through vacant cities on the ocean, or jumping from rocks over a cenote. When you stop planning and start adventuring you find you really don’t need much money at all. That most of the things you needed money for were things you actually didn’t even need. We make the mistake of bagging our bags full to the top never stopping to imagine that we need space to find new things. New adventures.

By hiding behind the CouchSurfing veil of travel you miss out on all kinds of adventure and it actually costs you more in the long run as you hop from town to town spending money on food, travel, and other things not knowing how to move around cheaply. You waste time on silly things and never really experience the adventure itself. Start being real and traveling cheap comes with it!
