I'm so glad you're here! I can't wait to tell you more about our life without a fridge.

Yes, you heard that right. No fridge.

Living without refrigeration - or drastically reducing the cost of keeping your food - is certainly possible. Find out the four main ways we keep food all year without a fridge or freezer.

With a family of six - four young children and two adults - we have lived for over a year without a fridge, and we eat well. You might even say I've written the book on living without a fridge. (Seriously. It's called A Cabin Full of Food!) Oh, and we don't have a freezer, either.

Beef stew. Chicken and dumplings. Spaghetti and meatballs. Shepherd's Pie. Biscuits and sausage gravy. Fresh garden salad. Homemade bread. French toast. We do eat well, and abundantly, all year.

And, while you may not be inclined to do the same, I can show you how, using the techniques that let us live without a fridge, you can enjoy your food more and save yourself money, too.

It is possible for a family to live without a fridge. It simply requires some slight changes in how we think about food

Before we moved off-grid, I spent a lot of time wondering how we'd keep our food.

I knew we'd have limited electricity (we have a small solar array) and that fridges are insane energy hogs. But, even though I had learned to live with a small fridge, I still couldn't get past the idea that we need some type of refrigeration.

And in turns out that the answer was right there in front of me.

It was in the stories my grandparents told me.

It was in the vintage cookbooks that I have always loved.

It was in the rhythm of the earth around me.

I am here to show you how we do it, and what we eat, and how you can modify these time-honoured techniques to improve your life. I know you can do this, because I've done it. 

And NONE of it requires:
  • acreage in the woods
  • an icehouse or spring house (although, you know, that would be cool!)
  • a home in the Arctic
  • specialized knowledge or skills
  • tons of money

Intrigued? Come on and find out how - and why - we live without a fridge!
