I've heard of this but haven't watched it, as I lack the patience to watch TV and am skeptical of most major networks. They tend to make a mockery of homesteaders and survivalists, make light of real success, and capitalize on mistakes and failures to discourage the population from trying to escape their gilded cage.

I'm not sure what exactly the rules for either vegans or paleos are, but if what I recall is correct, I'd make this rice, lentil, and potato dish flavored with onions, black pepper, red pepper, paprika, turmeric, ginger, garlic, and cumin, and I guess use coconut oil instead of the 2 tablespoons of butter I usually use. But I don't have any friends period. xD

Exactly. Not to mention I currently live in a very toxic urban area and don't entirely trust what grows here.

Nettle is another great multi purpose plant, it's a natural antihistamine, contains vitamins and minerals and complete protein (I need to check that claim, I have heard it a couple of times recently, but have not read it anywhere).

As I wrack my brain for multifunction plants, I wonder, Aetna, if you are trying to assemble a first response first aid kit (kind of redundant there ) or if you are trying to collect for long term health maintenance.



It's for a first aid kit meant to be strapped to my thigh at all times when outside the fenced portion of the property, containing the best of what the whole world of herbs has to offer, and it'd be highly impractical to not study the herbs of any locale you plan on visiting.

I'd like to know how older kids (3- were disciplined back in the paleo days. I don't ever plan on having my own, severely tokophobic and semi-antinatalist, but I have a nephew/brother/thing who's 4 and another one in my brother's girlfriend's belly. Also I'd like to know what I can do to help these kids to turn out right. By right, I mean intelligent, active, instinctive, self-sufficient, questioning of authority, and respectful of nature. Their mothers are the epitome of brainwashed, pill-popping, government-ass-kissing, humans-are-god American commercialism. The dad isn't much better. They aren't my kids, so I doubt there's a lot I can do besides convince the parents how bass-ackwards they are, but any little thing I can do would be better than nothing.

John Elliott wrote:What, no oregano? The more reading I do about oregano and the antibiotic terpene carvacrol, which is a major component of oil of oregano, the more respect I have for this prostrate plant. If you are making a list of useful herbs and don't have oregano on there, you owe it to yourself to find out more.



Because there's just so many amazing plants out there and it's hard to narrow it down to just 18. Dx

I am this person's mate, I made my own thread about this and thought it didn't go through, so he made an account just for this. xD And apparently my own thread worked too, so whichever one is valid. We both want the same thing.
