Food Dehydrator
Nesco Snackmaster Pro Food Dehydrator FD-75A

Finally Bought the Nesco Food Dehydrator for My Kitchen

I bought a whole bunch of fruits, sauces and other condiments last week to last me for a few days. And it was all great stuff too! Apples, Pears, Cantaloupes in fruits, and pasta sauce when I want to bake a homemade pizza, various meats including my favourite- ham, and basically, the works! Anyway that was a Sunday, and as Monday rolled in, so did work, traffic and every other commitment tied to a weekday! The days rolled by and come Saturday, I check in to see how my delicious supplies are doing. Turns out the pasta sauce has turned bad since it had to be used very soon, half the fruits have turned rotten, or too ripe to eat and don’t even get me started on the ham!

There had to be a better way to make these foods last! Two hours of online research later I found the answer- Food Dehydrators, built, for exactly this kind of thing. Apparently you can turn fruits into fruit rolls or strips and ground meat into jerky (dehydrated meat strip)! Who knew!!

My Paleo lifestyle. The Caveman way.

So I know it’s been awhile since my last post. Well I have a great reason for that which I will get to shortly. My job over the last three years had me traveling all across Canada staying in hotels and having no choice but to eat out(well so I thought). Prior to that I used to eat pizza fast food of any type and junk all the time. When I was about 25 I started to pack on some weight and it just continued from there. I would say that the previous 7 years or so from 32 going back was quite a bender. Not only was I consuming copious amounts of junk but I was also drinking a few more beer than I should have aswell. So as time went on and my careers had changed I noticed I was doing less physical work at work and more pencil pushing than anything.

Salmon and brussel sprouts

This is a fantastic way of frying up a great piece of wild caught Salmon. In the past it would completely throw me off when I see people eating the skin on a fish and seeing it plated skin side up just seemed weird. I don’t know if it’s because of maturity or just the fact that I am getting more accustomed to the creative side of cooking, but over the last couple of years I have really gotten use to cooking and eating when it’s prepared this way.
