Real Food Wednesday 10/19/2011

October 19, 2011 · 98 comments


Welcome and PLEASE read below before you link up as this is a REAL FOOD carnival, and very different from others you may have joined in on.


It’s that crazy time of the week when you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY tips and ideas or recipes! (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn more about this blog carnival.) Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating! (This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning, and don’t miss my tips below.)

CAN YOU HELP? (6 rules and tips!) (Note: here’s where those of you who are new will want to read carefully, thank you!)

1. It’s not easy for me to catch them all on my own, and I’d really like everyone to play fair, so if you see any posts that don’t link back to this post (blog carnival etiquette you know!), can you email me please? If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link. (I hate playing hardball and removing links, so let’s all be good to the others who are bringing more traffic to your blogs with their links by doing the same, OK?)

2. Also, PLEASE let me know if you see a recipe posted that is blatantly not Real Food. Someone who is striving and on the journey is one thing (as we all are), but if it’s really bad (canned bread, meat substitutes, Velveeta, margarine/vegetable oil, Egg Beaters, unfermented soy/tofu or any other fake food), please tell me so I can remove it. (If I’ve removed your post, I hope there are no hard feelings, but people come to this post for Real Food ideas, and I don’t want to disappoint.)

3. I hope you’ll retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!

4. Please don’t link up to your post where you’re writing about something as an affiliate if I’m already an affiliate for the same thing, OK? That includes giveaway posts. (Thank you for understanding!)

5. Want more traffic at your blog? if you’re linking up and hoping for more traffic to your blog, can I make a suggestion for how to boost your traffic? Besides just adding your link to the Mr. Linky doohicky, if you also comment and include just ONE interesting sentence to grab the readers attention AND a link to that specific post, you’ll get more hits for sure, at least from me anyway. I don’t often have time to go through every single link (although I know a lot of people do), but one thing I always do is read the comments. If there’s a sentence that grabs my interest AND a link to get me there easily, I’m much more apt to visit!

6. Don’t have a blog? We still want to hear from you! Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.

Thank you!

You’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!

    Hello, again!
    This week I’m sharing our Summer Gratin recipe. All real ingredients, and a delicious comfort food as the seasons change from summer to autumn.


    2 Butterpoweredbike October 19, 2011 at 12:30 am

    I’m sharing a recipe that has changed a few people’s minds about brussels sprouts. In fact, when I toss them with bacon grease and roast them until browned and yummy, it’s the dish that everyone requests for their birthday – yep, they’re that good.


    3 Debbie @ Easy Natural Food October 19, 2011 at 12:35 am

    I’ve linked up a recipe for a warm stir fried chicken salad. Has yummy asian-inspired flavors amd is very simple to make. I’m also letting everyone know that I’m going to be hosting a seasonal blog carnival for soups, stocks and chowders – every week during fall and winter.


    4 Amanda @ Traditional Foods October 19, 2011 at 1:00 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted a video recipe of albondigas, a Mexican meatball soup and also a profile of poppy seed with cooking ideas.


    5 Stanley Fishman October 19, 2011 at 1:02 am

    Thanks for hosting. My post this week is about the misguided tax that the Danish legislature has put on saturated fat, even though the Danish people are against it. Thanks to the Weston A. Price Foundation and others, most of us know how healthy and nutrient-dense saturated fat can be. And it makes food delicious too!

    Grassfed Saturated Animal Fat Should Not Be Taxed

    Hello Real Food Wednesday!
    Last Saturday, a small group of friends and I headed up into the foothills of the coastal range in search of Chanterelles. I’ve enjoyed their earthy, nearly alium flavor in sautés, soups, and casseroles, and have been wanting to foraged for them. This was our groups’ first time mushrooming, and my brother Joe was along as the expert guide and driver.


    7 Dori October 19, 2011 at 1:12 am

    Thank you for hosting us Kelly!


    8 Kendahl October 19, 2011 at 1:28 am

    I just launched Our Nourishing Roots yesterday! But I also already have this delicious Banana Bread with Walnut Crumble Topping posted today. I hope you all enjoy it. It’s to die for :) Enjoy warm from the oven with a glass of milk, in all it’s autumn glory!!

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly :)

    Hi Kelly,
    I shared my GF DF pizza crust and an article avout the important research from the Rodale Institute comparing ogranic to conventional ag. The results may surprise you!

    17 Leslie October 19, 2011 at 6:10 am

    Need some budget friendly Omega 3s? How about some salmon sliders (made less messy by baking in the oven). Also, a beautiful fall soup.


    18 Melissa @ Cellulite Investigation October 19, 2011 at 6:18 am

    Hi, Kel. I’m posting about why I added magnesium supplements and magnesium oil to my fluoride detox plan, and about my initial reactions. Happy RFW! Thanks for hosting.


    19 lydia October 19, 2011 at 6:53 am

    Hey Kel! Thanks again for being the hostess with the mostess!

    My post is questioning why we feed kids store bought cereal and why we should reconsider – a short video is included!


    20 Avivah @ Oceans of Joy October 19, 2011 at 6:55 am

    Chickenpox times five makes for a busy week! We’re nearing the end of the active sick period, but not without some undesired excitement as we deal with unexpected complications for our oldest child to get it!

    In my post I share the recipe for the homemade antibiotic salve I make, link to my list of natural remedies for chickenpox, and share what happened!


    21 Adrienne @ Whole New Mom October 19, 2011 at 7:19 am

    Good morning, Kelly!

    Today I am sharing:

    1. One of my recipes that is always a hit – my “Super Fast Bean Dip” and
    2. A story of healing of my son’s autism / Asperger’s that includes – a Monster :-).

    Thanks for hosting!

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for hosting. I posted today about a school that got an award for fighting obesity. Although they are doing some good things, they are off base of some things. I thought it was interesting because other school may look to them to make changes and that might not be positive.


    23 Sarah Smith October 19, 2011 at 8:02 am

    I linked to a post on avoiding Halloween candy overload, including tips for people on GAPS.


    24 Megh October 19, 2011 at 8:05 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted about making GAPS-legal hash browns — so yummy!


    25 VintageMom @ Allergy Free Vintage Cookery October 19, 2011 at 8:10 am

    Hi Kelly! Today I linked a recipe that sounds decadent but is totally healthy and nutritious… Maple Sweet Potato Oven Fries. Enjoy!


    26 Jenna October 19, 2011 at 8:21 am

    I posted one of my family’s favorite breakfast treats – Breakfast Cookies!!

    This one is a Cranberry Nut Chocolate Chip veriosn, but there are lots of options.

    Thanks for hosting!


    27 Lisa October 19, 2011 at 8:34 am

    Good morning! Today I’m sharing our very first attempt at a soaked muffin (Savory Sausage Breakfast Muffins) which turned out wonderfully — yeah! Thanks for hosting, ~Lisa :)

    29 Faith October 19, 2011 at 8:56 am

    Taking baby steps to bring real food into our kitchen! Come on over for a real food take on the Nestle Toll House Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe.


    30 Michelle @ October 19, 2011 at 9:00 am

    I linked up a post on how to make homemade gluten-free flour with a coffee bean grinder. It really saves money over the pre-packaged GF flours. This post was part of a series entitled “Frugal Food Allergy Living.” Here is the link for anyone who might be interested in reading further. Thanks for hosting!


    31 Amanda October 19, 2011 at 9:11 am

    Happy to share this week’s meal plan!


    32 Carmen @ Natural and Nourished Family October 19, 2011 at 9:35 am

    As a traditional foodie with food sensitivities, I find I rely a lot on coconut products (coconut flour, coconut oil, coconut milk). My Banana Coconut Muffins are delicious and totally fulfill my desire for a sweet baked treat. For those who are interested, these are gluten free and dairy free. But you can sub butter for the coconut oil with great results too.


    33 Roseann @ The Wholesome Life October 19, 2011 at 9:58 am

    During the holidays, many of us get tired of eating the same old turkey and/or ham. Here is a delicious recipe for Roast Pork Loin that makes wonderful holiday fare as well as everyday fare.

    Hope you all enjoy!! Thanks to you Kelly for hosting this wonderful forum of delicious recipes, ideas and articles of interest.

    Bon Appetit!!


    34 Therese - Artistta October 19, 2011 at 10:10 am

    I’ve included a recipe today for Burmese Chicken Noodle Soup. It uses rice noodles and a whole slew of different spices and flavors than what we see in a standard American chicken noodle soup. The flavor is out of this world and one bowl is certainly a meal of it’s own, especially with the garnish of hard-boiled eggs that’s recommended to go with it. Check it out!


    35 Andrea (From Seed to Stomach) October 19, 2011 at 10:12 am

    The most exciting thing happened to me last week! I met my FAVORITE cookbook author, Terry Walters, author of CLEAN FOOD and CLEAN START. She cooked up a pot of Red Lentil, Turnip, and Parsley soup, signed my books, and posed for pictures! Best day ever. I made the soup on Sunday and have been eating it for lunch every day. SO YUMMY!

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    36 Judy Tsafrir MD @ Holistic Psychiatry October 19, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I recently completed the GAPS training for practitioners and have a blog that has a GAPS focus for those who are interested.


    37 Priyanka October 19, 2011 at 10:32 am

    Thanks for hosting the event

    39 Paula October 19, 2011 at 11:53 am
    Hubby helped process 10,000 pounds of well marbled Alaskan grass fed beef last weekend, and took partial payment in steaks, much to our baby’s delight. She loves to chow down little chunks of red meat :)


    40 Vicky October 19, 2011 at 11:59 am

    Happy Wednesdays! Thanks for hosting!


    41 Michelle October 19, 2011 at 12:22 pm

    This is my first week participating in this and I’m thrilled to be able to. This past weekend I tried roasting vegetables for the first time (kinda sad I know) and fell in love with them. Now I have all sorts of possibilities running through my brain.


    42 KitchenKop October 20, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Thanks for joining in! :)



    43 Hannah October 19, 2011 at 12:31 pm

    Thanks for hosting! Linking up with Slow Cooker Tex-Mex Chicken and Beans.


    45 Melissa @ Dyno-mom October 19, 2011 at 1:59 pm

    This is such a great time every week. Thanks, Kelly! This week I linked to my post on how to use all those spices in your rack and included some great tasting and easy spice blends. If you are looking for an alternative to the onion soup mix for your beef brisket, plus an easy way to cook it, then you should definitely stop by.


    46 MaryEllen October 19, 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I accidentally came up with a delicious recipe for potato soup that uses up leftover mashed potatoes! It’s incredibly quick and easy too!


    47 Tessa Simpson October 19, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    I am sharing a creamy and dreamy fall pumpkin hot cereal w/ non-traditional grains for added nutritional oompf!


    48 Meg October 19, 2011 at 5:51 pm

    I shared an update on my naturally fermented ginger ale, which tastes great but is less fizzy than I’d like (I’m working on it). Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    49 Laurie October 19, 2011 at 9:28 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly.

    Today I linked up a sweet treat – portable pumpkin pie!

    This tasty fruit leather is made with wholesome ingredients like pumpkin puree, applesauce and coconut milk:


    50 Shyla October 19, 2011 at 10:39 pm

    Such yummy things you all have cooked up!


    51 Christine October 19, 2011 at 11:47 pm

    I love Real Food Wednesdays! I have linked up a post I wrote about my excitement for the upcoming Wise Traditions conference in November!


    52 KitchenKop October 20, 2011 at 10:46 am

    Oh good, I’m so glad I’ll get to see you there again this year! Going to read your post now… :)



    53 Primal Toad October 20, 2011 at 4:54 am

    We all love pumpkin banana bread… especially during mid to late October! But, what about smoothie style?! Well, now you can find out how you like it because you just have to follow the recipe!


    54 Moogie October 20, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    Hi… from Atlanta. Joining everyone with Real Food Wednesday.

    56 Christy @ Tools for Kitchens October 24, 2011 at 1:01 pm

    Hi, Kelly. In reference to your Monday Morning Mix-Up post, I must admit to indulging in McDonald’s french fries yesterday (lol)! I shared my chicken piccata recipe today. Thank you for hosting us again this week.


    57 Christy @ Tools for Kitchens October 25, 2011 at 2:33 pm
