Here are 8 recipes for self-sufficiency that are very simple and can get you on the right path towards a self sufficient lifestyle.

So many people worry about not having enough land, not being allowed to have chickens, etc.

But there is one basic building block of a self sufficient life people overlook a lot of times.

Being able to cook.

If you can not cook what you grow, raise and produce then why even bother?

We have a generation of people who have lost touch with what real food is and don’t know how to make some simple basics.

Here are 8 recipes that will help you on your journey.

1. A simple bread recipe.
