This weekend at my Shelf Reliance demo we had delicious cornbread and whipped butter.  I don't know about you, but I LOVE cornbread.  Did you know you could make cornbread entirely out of THRIVE foods?  Amazing!  Check out the recipe here.

A fellow consultant Warren Pace has developed a butter recipe that some have attested rivals home-churned butter.  Now that is amazing!  Here is his recipe:

What is TVP?

*From the Shelf Reliance website

TVP (Textured Vegetable Protein)is an excellent protein source that is easy to store and use. TVP is made from soy flour where the soy oil has been extracted. It is cooked under pressure and then extruded and dried. Not only is TVP high in protein, but its also high in fiber and low in fat. This makes TVP ideal forfood storage and also for every day use. Because TVP is not made from meat, it does not have the contamination risk that many meats have with bacteria such as E. Coli and Salmonella. Because it is soy based, it is perfect for those on a vegetarian diet. 
TVP is very shelf stable and can sit in a sealed container for at least a year. When sealed in an airtight container (where the oxygen has been removed) the shelf life is much longer. TVP is best stored in a cool, dry place

Why I Work With Shelf Reliance

Let's talk about food storage.  It's been one of those things that I need to work on for awhile.  I know that it is important.  Especially in this economy, I need the security of knowing that I have enough food to feed my family past the end of the week.  I've gathered some food storage here and there - some wheat and some beans, but I had no idea how much I would need or what I would do with it when it became necessary to use it.

Enter Shelf Reliance.  Here is a company that has gone far beyond just making and selling food with a long shelf life.  First, they sell only the highest quality food.  Believe me, their food is delicious!  Second, they take the guess work out of figuring out what to store.  Using their THRIVE Planner you can create a custom food storage plan for your families specific needs.  Once you know what you need to store and you decide how much of your monthly grocery budget you would like to allocate, you set up a Q.  This is like the Netflix of THRIVE food.  You take the food you want to buy, put it in your Q, specify your budget, and each month, Shelf Reliance sends you a shipment of food.  It's that easy.

So now I've got my Q set up and I'm confident about my food storage.  I know that in 6 months, I will have 3 months worth of food for my family.  But even better than that, this food is delicious!  And there are so many great choices of fruits and vegetables, that I can incorporate them into my every day cooking.  That way, I can start to learn how to use my food storage.  In addition, I don't have vegetables going bad in my fridge, I have a can of vegetables in my cupboard that have all the nutrition and flavor of fresh vegetables.  Shelf Reliance also has a collection of recipes that can teach me how to use the food I have stored.

Now I have decided to really jump in and join the Shelf Reliance team as an independent consultant.  By doing so, I get to share this great product with everyone.  I also get the opportunity to earn additional income for my family.  They have an excellent compensation plan and I even make back a percentage of everything I buy.  So I figure, why not?

And now I ask you, why not?  I invite you to take a look around the Shelf Reliance website and decide if you would like to join me in this great opportunity.  If you'd like a chance to see and try the product, contact me about hosting a party.  At the party we will have samples for you and your guests to experience for yourselves and you will have the opportunity to earn free and discounted products.

I invite everyone to take a minute to check out the planner and see what you need to store for your family.  Go ahead and set up a Q and activate it when you are ready.  As an incentive, during the month of March I am giving anyone who signs up for a Q of $150 or more a free THRIVE cookbook.

So what are you waiting for.  At least check it out.  And feel free to contact me with any questions.  I'd love to help.  That is why I am doing this, after all.
