what I teach

new on the blog

Freeze dried food can be a great resource. Here I discuss the advantages and challenges of storing freeze dried food.
I give long-term food storage a bad rap because I think people focus on it rather than focusing on short-term food storage. But if you know how to use and incorporate your long-term food storage in your regular diet then they are a great way to stock up for emergencies. They are cheap, filling, and full of good nutrition.
Building a food storage shouldn't be hard or complicated and let me show you why.

I love how JaNae has treated people’s concerns and anxieties with respect and has provided solid information to help them approach preparedness calmly and without fear.
Prepared Like a Mother breaks stuff down into easy actionable steps for a person to follow based on their own unique situations. I didn’t feel like I was properly prepping until I found this website! Low and behold I’ve been “Prepared Like a Mother” for years! Storing what my family uses, needs and having stuff on hand for our unique situations. Thank you for all you do!!
I love that you address how each one of us has a different way we need to be prepared and you walk us through that step by step!
