EAT

I’m lucky. I learned to embrace home cooking at the hands of an excellent cook – my mom. Not everyone has that kind of knowledge to fall back on, though.

If you’re aiming to live a more self-reliant lifestyle, my vote for the number one place to start is the kitchen.

Instead of counting on Campbell’s, learn to make your own soup. Instead of falling back on prepackaged spreads, learn to make your own.
