Take someone who was raised in the suburbs, give her an advanced education, drop her in the middle of Montana, and see what happens! She learns to love the soil, knows how to make do, knows how to make things “from scratch,” and loves to share this passion with others. Denise Hansen grew up on Long Island and then attended Brigham Young University, where she received both a BS and MS in nutrition. Then she and her husband moved to Bigfork, Montana, where she learned a whole new way of life. Ten years later, a move to a remote corner of northeastern Washington State continued her newfound rural lifestyle.
Most of her work as a registered dietitian has been teaching, from children through seniors, concepts of nutrition or hands-on cooking. But most of her time was spent raising a family and producing food at home. As year 2000 approached, people began asking her how to prepare for possible food emergencies, and her first book, Eating Off the Grid - storing and cooking foods without electricity, was published in 1999.
As of 2011, it is being republished as a series of four ebooks, with updated information and many photograph-enhanced instructions, under the series title, Unshackled UnChef. Her latest work, Feeding Your Family in a Fried Economy, is a workbook that takes the reader step by step, gradually releasing you from dependence on supermarket foods and prices, and saving from 30% to 50% or more on grocery bills.
Hansen will soon be addressing the production side of eating, with eBooks on gardening and eating from your harvest year round. With all of us making changes in how we feed our families we WILL make a difference.
