Real Food Wednesday 2/9/11

February 9, 2011 · 64 comments


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! (If you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site…) 

First, can you help?

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?  (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 post 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, Velveeta, margarine, Egg Beaters, unfermented soy 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.  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!

    Hi everyone. I’ve got meat loaf recipe by Mom, a super iron rich food.

    Is this right? I am the first this week. Fantastic-o! I am so happy to be posting my food again. It’s been a while.

    Thanks for hosting!!

    This week I wanted to lighten things up with my Fresh Mex Flatbread Pizza recipe. It’s QUICK, TASTY & HEALTHY, and a winner with the whole family. Hope you’ll stop by and give it a try!!

    Man, THIS is a goodie! Kim Boyce’s Strawberry and Rye Crumble Bars are the best crumble bars I’ve made, and the healthiest by far as well. Enjoy! Cheers, Angela


    7 April@The 21st Century Housewife February 9, 2011 at 3:03 am

    I always enjoy Real Food Wednesdays. Thank you so much for hosting, Kelly. I’ve posted my easy method of making omelettes, along with some great nutritious variations on this classic dish.


    8 Sharon February 9, 2011 at 6:20 am

    Today, I’m sharing a family favorite. I need to work on remembering to take pictures when I cook!! :)


    9 Peggy February 9, 2011 at 6:30 am

    Congri (Cuban Black Beans and Rice) is a great supper for a family struck with colds! I post my recipe with options for slow, fast and fastest preparation.


    10 Kristia@Family Balance Sheet February 9, 2011 at 7:09 am

    I posted a delicious, kid-pleasing soup: Pasta e Fagioli.

    Thanks for the link-up.


    11 T Hollis February 9, 2011 at 7:14 am

    Try my raw Sweet Potato Salad!


    12 Elizabeth @ The Nourished Life February 9, 2011 at 7:56 am

    This week I reviewed the highly controversial book “Fat Politics” by J. Eric Oliver, who debates the obesity epidemic and demonstrates how politics and culture fuel our weight obsession and prevent us from enjoying true health.


    13 ValerieH February 9, 2011 at 8:22 am

    I made a stew with beef heart. Wouldn’t it be fun to eat heart on Valentine’s Day? All the heart-shaped goodies are not nearly as nutritious!


    14 chris@getrealchris February 9, 2011 at 8:24 am

    Good morning everyone! This week I’m sharing my recipe for Coconut Curried Lentil Stew which is a perfect, hardy, winter meal.


    15 Janice @ SAHMville February 9, 2011 at 8:30 am

    Today I am sharing some video of my sweet son that struggles with autism. We have video of him from a year ago and compare it to video from today after being on the GAPS Intro diet for a month. Come see the improvements and rejoice with me!


    16 Sara February 9, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Thanks for hosting another great Real Food Wednesday! I love these posts – I get so many great recipes and ideas from them!


    17 Mary @ Nourished Heart February 9, 2011 at 9:49 am

    Posted cheesy, comforting mac & cheese – not from a box!


    18 Lisa @ Happy in Dole Valley February 9, 2011 at 9:59 am

    As always, thanks for hosting Real Food Wednesdays; I’m always inspired to try a few new recipes like the curried lentil stew. Today I’m linking up my low-sugar maple pecan muffins. Blessings to all!

    Low-Carb/Grain-Free + Real Food?! Check out this BALSAMIC EGGPLANT PARM and let me know how it works for you. :)


    21 Crystal February 9, 2011 at 10:44 am

    This week, I’m talking about getting ready for my first little garden. I’m so excited!


    22 Therese - Artistta February 9, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I’m sharing my recipe for Chocolate Coconut Flour Cake sweetened honey. It’s gluten and grain free and you’d hardly know it wasn’t a standard cake! My husband had no idea I had used coconut flour!


    23 Katie @ Wellness Mama February 9, 2011 at 12:29 pm

    Thanks for hosting! Love all the ideas each week!


    24 Melissa at Dyno-mom February 9, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    My husband is Finnish, so I asked my in-laws for viili starter. In “Nourishing Traditions” she dicusses Piima milk and cream. The old Finns call it viilipiima (for cultured milk) and kermaviili (for cultured cream). I made viilipiima earlier this week, and it has a wonderful honey-like texture and I reserved half to make cream cheese. I made the kermaviili yesterday and was ecstatic and how delicious it is! Imagine a rich, sweet and slightly tangy sour cream. If you have not tried it, you simply must. It is way too easy and way too fabuloso not to! Thanks for letting me brag on Finnish food!


    25 Jenn February 9, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    I linked an article about milk as a nourishing food.


    26 Ashley February 9, 2011 at 1:00 pm

    Hi Real Food Wednesday gang! This week I tried making homemade beef stock and got a lesson on the importance of thoroughly reading directions!

    Have a great week all!


    27 Jenna Hoskinson February 9, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    linked up to my Adventures in Bagel-Making post. I hope it counts – they are made with white flour.


    28 Jenna Hoskinson February 9, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Shoot, this is the first time I’ve done this and I put my actual name in the box, not the name of my post! oops!


    29 Nerdy Mom February 9, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I did the same thing, Jenna! Glad not to be the only one!


    30 Amanda February 9, 2011 at 1:07 pm

    Thanks for providing such a great link up!! :)


    31 hellaD February 9, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    Yes Real food wednesday, what a great bunch of posts, yummy and some thought stimulating articles as well. I linked up the Q and A session after we watched Milk War starring Michael Schmidt. Our Agister talks about how our cowshare got started and Declan O’Driscall talks about Canada’s pasteurization laws.


    32 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) February 9, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    Hi Kelly- Happy Wednesday!
    I am sharing my recipe for Raspberry Curd that is made from either frozen or fresh raspberries. It tastes amazing and can be used to top cookies, fill cakes or whatever!
    Thanks for hosting!


    33 Nerdy Mom February 9, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    Thanks for hosting this! It’s my first time visiting, and I’m so excited to check out some new ideas. I am still at the beginning of my Real Food journey, so reading the advice of others who are a little farther along is so encouraging!


    34 Shannon February 9, 2011 at 2:09 pm

    Hi Kelly!

    I’ve revisited my real food goals and made some changes after some fresh inspiration. I’m sharing my musings on this topic.

    Have a great week and thanks for hosting!



    35 Amy Love @ Real Food Whole Health February 9, 2011 at 4:13 pm

    Hey guys!

    I’m sharing Harvest Cookies- they are gluten free and grain free. We just love them- they freeze well and are a great snack or treat. (I’ll admit they’ve been breakfast a couple times as well!) Packed with coconut, pistachios, pecans, cranberries and some dark chocolate chips…yum!


    36 Kimberly Hartke February 9, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    Today, I am sharing a Chef’s Secret Recipe for the Best Pea Soup in Chicago. Bet they need it in this weather, BRRR!


    37 Shu Han February 9, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    Hi I shared a recipe for sourdough Chinese dumplings other wise known as gyoza or potstickers! (: It has a much denser bite to it, but a lot more flavourful and umami (: and healthier!


    38 Garden Variety Mama February 9, 2011 at 6:28 pm

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for making your own (everlasting!) vanilla extract. Yum!


    39 Renee @ Loca-Faces February 9, 2011 at 6:52 pm

    I am enjoying all the discovery through these lists, and I joined for the first time… adding one on finding CSAs.


    40 Donna February 9, 2011 at 6:59 pm

    Thanks for hosting this!
    I hope I’m doing this right – It’s the first time I’ve participated in Real Food Wednesdays.
    I just started a real living blog and this week, I focus on grass-fed and (truly) free-range locally and humanely raised and slaughtered meat in Massachusetts.


    41 Lisa Sargese February 9, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    No soda for me, thanks. I’m healing bones over here!


    42 Trina February 10, 2011 at 9:46 am

    I shared my tips for making easy, BPA-free chili for those weekends at the ski lodge!


    43 Pamela February 10, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    Day late here and I haven’t participated with Real Food Wednesday’s in a long time. Linked up a posting I did January 22nd. Stop on over my site has a brand new look!


    44 Primal Toad February 11, 2011 at 10:24 pm

    I am glad to be back to real food wednesdays! My post is quite late but it won’t be next time!

    I recently wrote a post on 5 reasons why calorie counting fails because, well, it does. It only works when one starves oneself!


    45 Ravi February 13, 2011 at 10:06 pm

    just found you – and double posted cause i see you needed to know what was in the title (sorry – you can eliminate my first entry!) will be back!
