 Are you looking for ways to help make ends meet?Are you a survival prepper or prepping for a zombie apocalypse?

Knowing what you can eat in the wild is important! Did you know that a large number of plants that grow wild are edible or have medicinal properties? Better yet - this is FREE food just growing in the wild for the taking! (Please check your local laws before foraging.) You don't need to head into the woods to look for these plants - many grow wild in backyards, lawns and even sidewalks!

Unfortunately, many foraging books cover only regional plants that were not applicable to wild edible and medicinal plants that grew in Colorado.

Jill has been foraging for food and medicinal plants since 2007. In this Beginner's Guide, she covers 10 wild plants that grow in most of North America including:

- Cattail
- Clover
- Dandelion
- Jerusalem Artichokes
- Pine
- Plantango
- Prickly Pear
- Purslane
- Usnea
- Yucca 
- Includes identification guides, possible toxic lookalikes, recipes, uses, risks and storage methods.

New York Times Bestseller and Winner of the 2018 James Beard Award for Best General Cookbook and multiple IACP Cookbook Awards

Named one of the Best Books of 2017 by: NPR, BuzzFeed, The Atlantic, The Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, Rachel Ray Every Day, San Francisco Chronicle, Vice Munchies,, Glamour, Eater, Newsday, Minneapolis Star Tribune, The Seattle Times, Tampa Bay Times, Tasting Table, Modern Farmer, Publishers Weekly, and more.

A visionary new master class in cooking that distills decades of professional experience into just four simple elements, from the woman declared “America’s next great cooking teacher” by Alice Waters.

In the tradition of The Joy of Cooking and How to Cook Everything comes Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat, an ambitious new approach to cooking by a major new culinary voice. Chef and writer Samin Nosrat has taught everyone from professional chefs to middle school kids to author Michael Pollan to cook using her revolutionary, yet simple, philosophy. Master the use of just four elements—Salt, which enhances flavor; Fat, which delivers flavor and generates texture; Acid, which balances flavor; and Heat, which ultimately determines the texture of food—and anything you cook will be delicious. By explaining the hows and whys of good cooking, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will teach and inspire a new generation of cooks how to confidently make better decisions in the kitchen and cook delicious meals with any ingredients, anywhere, at any time.

Echoing Samin’s own journey from culinary novice to award-winning chef, Salt, Fat Acid, Heat immediately bridges the gap between home and professional kitchens. With charming narrative, illustrated walkthroughs, and a lighthearted approach to kitchen science, Samin demystifies the four elements of good cooking for everyone. Refer to the canon of 100 essential recipes—and dozens of variations—to put the lessons into practice and make bright, balanced vinaigrettes, perfectly caramelized roast vegetables, tender braised meats, and light, flaky pastry doughs.

Featuring 150 illustrations and infographics that reveal an atlas to the world of flavor by renowned illustrator Wendy MacNaughton, Salt, Fat, Acid, Heat will be your compass in the kitchen. Destined to be a classic, it just might be the last cookbook you’ll ever need.

With a foreword by Michael Pollan.
Secrets of a 16-year Full-Time Seller and Pioneering Power Seller

Have you sold some items but are looking for more to sell?
Are you looking to expand your eBay business but don't know where to start?

This is NOT a garbage book written by someone with little or no eBay experience describing what eBay is and what an eBay business is!

I have made a full-time living selling on eBay since 1998.
I started selling on eBay in my college dorm room.
Within 2 years, I had made enough money to cover 2 years of Ivy League college tuition. 

I was one of the pioneering Powersellers.

In the nearly two decades of selling on eBay, I have been through, and survived many economic booms and busts.
I am now moving further into the countryside and semi-retiring from eBay selling.

In this book, I will reveal all my closely guarded secrets to selling on eBay including: my best retail sources, how to maximize profits using retail arbitrage, how to find deals from both online and brick and mortar stores, how to reduce risk and shipping costs.

**This book is NOT for eBay novices**

This book assumes the reader has some knowledge of selling on eBay. The ideas in this book apply to all sellers. The details apply to US-based sellers.This book is NOT a get-rich quick scheme.Selling on eBay is easy. But it can also be hard.
If everyone could get rich selling on eBay, everyone would be doing it!I will not build castles in the air for you.I will not tell you that you can make money on eBay by selling unspecified items from unspecified wholesalers.I will not give you a list of toys and tell you to go on Craigslist to find them.I will not claim that I work two hours a day selling on eBay and make thousands a month. (Come ON! Get real...)Selling on eBay is a BUSINESS and I have been in this business long enough to know that there are no guarantees, regardless of past performances.

Instead, I will give you the TOOLS to help you find products and to TOOLS to help you maximize your profits on eBay.

Unlike other eBay authors, I do not recommend buying stock wholesale to resell on eBay.
I will explain why in this book.

I do not look for items to sell at garage sales or storage auctions.

Finding a niche market is great, but I will show why you do not need to have a niche to make money on eBay.

Instead I will show you how to maximize profits with tricks on how to get the best deals on NEW items from retail sources like Staples, Kohl's, Target and MORE!


I provide many tools, secrets and tips in this book and hope that it will help you to thrive on eBay in good times and survive in bad times. 

Are you ready to maximize your profits?
