This post contains affiliate links. If you’re only here for the food and you’re feeling a little sore about me trying to sell you something, don’t worry. This is the only post I’ll do about this sale and it’s only because I think it’s a great deal on great content.
Remember my ebook, How to Become a Better Home Cook? I took it off the market for a while because I didn’t have time to keep up with the sales and marketing of it, but it’s back! Even better, it’s part of a really great bundle sale. If you’re not familiar with bundle sales, you basically get tons of great books, deals, and courses for one ridiculous price. The Back to Basics Living Bundle is 69 eBooks and 5 eCourses and subscriptions worth over $800, as well as 12 bonus offers with a combined value over $100. For all of this you only have to pay $29.97! Let that sink in for a minute.
One of the hard things about buying a bundle is wondering if you’re really going to read all the books and do all the courses. You’re not. What you are going to do is look through the list find at least 5-7 books that you really value and could never get for such a great price on their own. I’m going to walk you through a few of my favorites from this bundle, but be sure to look at the whole list to see what appeals to you most!
Discovering Sourdough by Teresa Greenway
I love making whatever food I can from scratch. As my kids get older I hope I’ll have more time to make bread from scratch or even teach them to do it for me. Sourdough is delicious and so good for you, but I was at a total loss for where to start. Teresa walks you through everything you need, what you need to do, and what everything should look like (with pictures, HALLELUJAH). And let’s not forget the recipes at the end of the book, which, let’s be real, I wish I was eating right now. It’s a carb lover’s dream.
Real Food Meal Plans Made Easy by Jessica Beacom and Stacie Hassing
First off, I should point out this is not a vegetarian meal plan, but the recipes all look really delicious and I think any seasoned vegetarian would know how to make a few simple swaps. The real win here is that the whole meal plan is gluten-free. It’s also beautifully put together and is complete with a grocery list (can I get an AMEN). There are four weeks all planned out of you, but I can’t promise I’m going to be able to wait until week four to try the Creamy Butternut Squash Soup.
Healthy Family Meals on a Budget by Jolene Sloam
The balance between real, wholesome food and our actual food budget is always tough. Jolene has some really good tips for eating healthy and saving money. I especially like what she had to say about what to do when traveling and how to reduce food waste. I have serious food waste guilt, and as a result we throw away very little food each week. If you’d like to throw away less, a lot of her tips are the same ones I use, so they’re guaranteed to work! Again, the recipes she shares aren’t strictly vegetarian, but there is also a section for lots of ways to make eggs, which I loved.
Get Growing by Gabe Wright
Last summer I finally acquired some raised garden beds and tried my hand at gardening. It really didn’t go so great, but I’m hoping each year I’ll get a little better. Gabe’s book was exactly what I needed to read this winter to gain a little confidence in the garden. He focuses on 5 easy to grow vegetables and tells you everything you need to know from seedling to harvest. There are even a few recipes at the end to help you use up your bounty.
Lessons from the Homestead by Carol Alexander
This is actually a collection of five ebooks and was a really fun surprise to me. Carol takes things like gardening, bee keeping, and building a tree house and turns them into homeschool lessons. This might be geared more towards older kids and those that do a lot of homesteading activities, but I like the real life application and think it will still be really useful to me.
Homeschool Planner by Kelsi Rea
OMG this planner. This is EXACTLY what I needed. I currently write out assignments for my kids in a spiral notebook and just kind of guess at whether or not I’m covering all my bases. This planner is geared toward the Charlotte Mason method, is beautiful and simple, and all I need to complete it is a three ring binder.
Schoolhouse Teachers 3 Month Membership
Ok so I’m getting more and more excited here but I cannot stress enough how crazy it is that you get three months of access to what is basically an entire online curriculum. My kids and I are going to get so much use out of these courses. They have literally everything for every grade. I’m definitely going to start with things that kind of get pushed to the side in our house like history and health.
Bonus: Sun Oven
So there are a bunch of bonus deals where you can save money on other types of purchases like glass straws, heirloom seeds, and natural beauty products. But the one that really stood out to me was the Sun Oven. You can bake, boil, steam, or dehydrate food using only the sun. This would be amazing for camping, traveling, or in the event of a natural disaster or power outage. With this bundle you can save $133 on your order of the Sun Oven!
I know that’s a lot to take in, and if you look at the full list it’s even more overwhelming, but hopefully you can find a few things that really spark your interest. The people who put this bundle together work really hard so that people like us can get all of this great information for one low price. I would never in a million years buy so many eBooks on their own, but all bundled together for just $29.97 it’s definitely something I can do, and I hope you can to. The sale ends Sunday (1/22) at midnight, but don’t wait until the last minute, get over there now! If you buy the bundle, be sure to let me know which eBooks, courses, or bonuses you’re most excited about!
