Make This Cool-Down Drink for Quick Rehydration

Who would have thought that hydration could be as personal as food preferences? At least if you venture online about the subject. Frankly, it’s been input overload for me.

3 Superfoods that will help you survive a food shortage

3 Superfoods that will help you survive a food shortage

During times when we experience a shortage of food whereby food that is normally available in the supermarket is no longer on the shelves and resupply is disrupted or perhaps you experience a situation where your finances no longer stretch and you have to ration or simplify your diet drastically, our bodies will most probably go through a withdrawal and low energy stage whereby we experience discomfort and unsettled feelings such as fatigue, anxiety and headaches.... this can be due to low blood sugar levels and a disruption to our reliance upon our normal routine of food intake...

Nick the Herbal Survivalist tells us about Superfoods, something that we should consider when putting together our emergency or survival kit ... or our household pantry.

Outback Survival by Bob Cooper

Outback Survival by Bob Cooper

OUTBACK SURVIVAL is a timeless, practical run down on everything you need to know to survive in the outback.

Bob's incredible bushcraft skills have been developed through more than 25 years of experience in the outback. He has picked up tools of survival from the experiences of living with traditional Aboriginal communities, instructing with Special Forces Units, lecturing with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Service on desert survival in the Mexican Desert, delivering wilderness lessons in the UK and learning the skills of the bushmen of the Kalahari Desert in Botswana.

Bob has put his own lessons to the test, dropping himself off in the 42C heat of the Australian desert with only a map and soap box sized survival kit, no food, water or sleeping gear, and a 10 day walk across 160km of rough terrain back to safety. He did this alone and showed that with the right knowledge of the land, you can survive. The outback of Australia is one of the most unforgiving regions of the world, but Bob is committed to protecting and enhancing the experience people have when venturing out into the bush.
