    Survival Skills: 10 Ways to Use Bamboo


    by Tim MacWelch


    Bamboo is just one of those things, like rope or duct tape, that can be adapted to create an infinite number of material items. From survival gear to homesteader equipment, bamboo’s uses seem to only be limited by the imagination of the user.

    So what are the 10 best ways to use bamboo for survival?

    1. First, you’ll want to get a survival shelter built in the event of an emergency. Bamboo poles are both strong and lightweight, which makes them a great choice for building shelter elements.

    2. Your water needs can be satisfied from different species of bamboo. Some bamboo grows large enough to make containers inside which you can boil water. Other bamboo can actually contain drinkable water between the joints.

    3. Speaking of boiling water, bamboo can help you with your fire building when split into kindling and firewood. Bamboo also shows up in several different traditional fire building methods like the fire piston and the bamboo fire saw.

    4. Consider bamboo as a torch for low-tech lighting. Split one end so that it splinters into several pieces. Insert some tinder and drip a little oil on the tinder, if you can spare the oil. This will give you a bright torch that should last for 15 or 20 minutes.

    5. Bring home the bacon (so to speak) by using a bamboo pole as a fish spear or frog gig.

    6. Bamboo can be a sturdy yet flexible fishing pole for some old-fashioned worm dunking.

    7. The hollow sections of bamboo make great containers for dry goods and wet stuff, even a water canteen.

    8. Build food steamers and cook pots from bamboo.

    9. You can eat the bamboo. Not the whole thing, mind you, but the tender shoots of edible bamboo species can be cooked and eaten. But do your homework before you chow down, some bamboo species can contain cyanide. Consult a bamboo book to find out which species that grow in your area are safe to eat, and also how to keep from harming the plant too much during the harvesting process.

    10. Get out of trouble Huck Finn-style on a bamboo raft.

    Tell us what you have crafted from bamboo in the comments.

    Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream (dairy-free)

    Category: Dairy-Free, Desserts, Gluten-Free, Paleo 1 Comment




    We are in the middle of a heat wave here in southern California and this Dairy-Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream is the perfect way to beat the heat!


    Everyone keeps complaining about the weather, they are over the extended summer and anxiously waiting for the days to cool off. Not me. Growing up in Costa Rica, where the weather is warm year-round, I really dislike the cold. Anyways, I have been “playing” with my ice cream machine a lot lately. I’ve been making ice cream almost every day. This one was a total hit, it was extra creamy and hard to believe that it is dairy free. I used a little bit of avocado to make it extra creamy and give it a little bit more of a green color.

    When choosing an avocado, make sure that it is not too green or 2 ripe. If you use an over-ripened avocado, you will be able to taste the avocado in the ice cream.


    For the chocolate chips
    Ingredients:
    ¼ cup of coconut oil
    3 tbsp of raw honey
    3 tbsp of raw cacao powder or cocoa powder


    Preparation:


    • Melt the coconut oil.
    • Remove from heat.
    • Mix in the honey and cacao and combine very well.
    • Line a dish with parchment paper and pour the mixture over it.
    • Place it in the freezer.
    • Once the chocolate is set, cut into small pieces and keep in the freezer until ready to use


    For the Ice Cream
    Ingredients:

    14 ounces of full fat canned coconut milk or homemade coconut milk
    1/3 cup of avocado puree
    1/3 cups of mint leaves
    Sweetener to taste, I used 1/3 cup of raw honey


    Preparation:


    • Using a blender combine all the ingredients.
    • Follow your ice cream maker instructions.
    • When the ice cream is almost done, add the chocolate chips.
    • Transfer ice cream to a container and put in the freezer for at least an hour before serving.

    Paleo Strawberry Rhubarb Pie

    Category: Dairy-Free, Desserts, Vegan, Vegetarian Tags: almond flour, dairy free, fruit sweetened, gluten free, gluten-free strawberry rhubarb pie, grain free, paleo recipe, refined sugar free, rhubarb recipe, soy free, strawberry recipe, summer pie, Vegan, vegetarian, walnut pie crust 1 Comment



    I know that strawberry rhubarb pie is more of a summer dish, but Lilah, my 3-year-old, checked out a book called “Pinkalicious” from the public library. It’s about a little girl who turns pink from eating too many pink cupcakes. Now, she keeps asking for pink and red cakes so I have been making lots of stuff with strawberries and raspberries.

    She is also asking me to make her a healthy pink bubble gum… Now that is a challenge!

    This was her first time trying any kind of pie and was also my first attempt at making anything with rhubarb except for adding them to smoothies. I’ve recently learned that rhubarb is one of the lowest calorie vegetables; 100 g of this vegetable has only 21 calories while being rich in antioxidants, vitamin A, K, and B complexes.

    Strawberries are another nutrient dense food. Did you know that one cup of strawberries contains 136% of the RDA of vitamin C? Whenever I think of vitamin C, oranges always come to mind but never strawberries…They also have anti-inflammatory properties and are known to help whiten teeth

    For the Crust

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cup of walnuts
    1 cup of almond flour
    2 tbsp of coconut oil
    1 egg
    6 dates
    1/2 tsp of cinnamon

    Preparation:
    -Preheat oven to 350
    -In a food processor blend all ingredients together, except the egg, until a flour is formed.
    -Add the egg and pulse in until is well mixed
    -Using your hands press this mixture onto the bottom and sides of a pie mold, forming an even layer
    -Bake for 10-12 minutes

    For the filling

    Ingredients:
    1 lb of sliced strawberries
    2 cups of chopped rhubarb
    1/2 cup of fresh orange juice
    1 cup of pitted dates
    4 tbsp of arrowroot powder
    1/2 tsp of cinnamon

    Preparation:
    -Using a blender or food processor, blend dates, arrowroot powder, and 1/2 cup of strawberries until smooth.
    -Transfer mixture to a bowl; mix in the rest of the ingredients.
    -Pour into the pie crust and bake for 45 to 55 minutes at 350 or until the rhubarb is soft, if the top of the pie starts to look too dry, sprinkle a couple of tablespoons of orange juice on top
    -Chill and serve
    -Add whipped cream or dairy-free vanilla frosting (optional)
