You can save time further by buying the chicken livers broiled: make sure they are broiled properly, not all dried out: We want them tender and creamy! Let’s Go Moroccan

Mark Sisson has a great article about the how and whys of bone marrow broths. However, I have a little known secret about how to get a good bone broth, at a fraction of the price of grass-fed beef bones. A little secret about bone broths A little secret about bone broths

survivalists often fall into the trap and stereotype of being so rugged that they view rough, calloused hands as a trademark of preparedness and forget that their skin is the first line of protection against all sorts of ailments. This protection falls short if the skin is not kept in good shape. While our ancestors used a variety of oils and greases to keep their skin healthy, most of us think of lotion as a luxury that you can only get from the salon or a store. But the truth is you can and should create your own lotions… its actually quite easy and really fun! DIY Lotions - Survival Life
