  • 9:52 – Science with Sarah: Why should you have a manual defrost freezer?
    • Frozen meat? Like from US Wellness?
    • -20 degrees Celsius is actually -4 degrees Fahrenheit and also 253.15 Kelvin.
    • Here’s a comparison between frost-free and manual freezers. While the hassle of defrosting a freezer is problematic, your food will not dry out like the frost-free and it will be more energy efficient.
    • Ladies, chest freezers are way better! More energy efficient and will last longer in a blackout because the cold air will stay down in the freezer instead of escaping out the door!
  • 16:47 – Questions and answers

    • 26:05 – How do I keep from being in the kitchen all the time?
      • I spend an awful lot of time in the kitchen, but I try really hard to multitask with it. I invite the kids in and we do homework together while I cook or we play board games or talk about our days or even do something for myself.
      • (By the way, being an at home dad is not the hardest job in the world and I can’t imagine the amount of intellectual focus and drove it takes to have Stacy’s job, but it is the hardest job to manage and do successfully)
      • Time management from Sarah
      • And perhaps it would be helpful to check out Once a Month Mom? There are certainly adaptable menus there.
      • Well Fed and our reviews.

      • Chemical formula: 9 Na2CO3 + 2 KC4H5O6 = 5 H2O + 17 CO2 + 18 Na + 2 K. It’s the CO2 that makes it rise
    • 57:36 – How long until the beef fat from stock last?

    If the paleo diet is what our bodies are designed to process then one could indeed argue that most of the modern

    diseases are linked to unhealthy and improper dietary choices. Furthermore, scientists propose that the affluence

    and purchasing power was what prompted people to begin selecting bad food choices in the first place. Instead of raw

    fresh fruits and veggies it became quite popular to demonstrate one’s wealth by eating foods that others could not

    afford.
