A List of Items Containing High Fructose Corn Syrup?

Dear Editor,

While I’m trying to get off the grid in as many ways as possible, it is a work in progress. I’m getting my food stores together, I’m learning how to can and garden (it’s a very small garden, however), and I’m trying to get off the GMOs and stuff that isn’t good for you. For instance, I’m trying to get away from all products that use high fructose corn syrup. However, taking the time to pick up each and every jar, bottle, can, and box in the grocery store is a time consuming process. Is there a list out there of items to avoid? It would make grocery shopping so much easier!




Dear Sugarless,

If there is one thing that I’ve found, it’s that the Internet is a limitless source of information! Some of it is good and some of it is plain bogus, but…

There is a blog that was created just for you! It’s the “No High-Fructose Corn Syrup List” and you can find it at This site is dedicated to all things with and without high fructose corn syrup. The list is updated as new items are added or taken away, and it shows you some easier methods for finding out the contents of grocery store items without picking up every jar, can, bottle and box in the grocery store!

Thanks for writing!

What Kind of Homesteading Can I Do In My Small Back Yard?


Dear Editor,

I live in a small house on a small plot of land. I don’t think it amounts to even an acre’s worth of dirt. What kind of homesteading operation can I have to become more self-sufficient? I can’t afford to sell out and buy somewhere else.

Love the site, by the way!



Dear Stuck,

You are anything but stuck! There are plenty of options for you! Let me recommend the book The Backyard Homestead Guide to Raising Farm Animals by Gail Damerov. She is a wonderful and trusted source of all things related to chickens, and this book is just as good, just as easy to read, and just as full of information for the small-plot homestead as any of her other books.

By using the dirt that you have wisely, you ought to be able to feed yourself out of your own yard without any trouble at all.

Thanks for writing!
