Real Food Wednesday 3/16/11

March 16, 2011 · 95 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 or recipes! (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 Kelly,

    I linked up a recipe for lentil pancakes that we love to eat for breakfast. Packed full of protein and iron, they are a solid start to the day.




    2 Peggy March 16, 2011 at 12:19 am

    Yup, I did it. I cooked pancakes in lard.


    3 Denise @ Creative Kitchen March 16, 2011 at 12:21 am

    Wow…first this week! Too cool…I’ve never been first. Thanks for hosting Kelly. I really do enjoy checking out the Real Food blogs each week & making new friends.

    This past weekend my hubby was impulsive and got into a bit of trouble. And though it wasn’t funny at the time, it definitely livened up my “How to find local free-range egg” post. Please laugh at my expense….it will make my Saturday afternoon worthwhile. ;) If it had happened to anyone else, I would have found it extremely funny.

    I adjusted a recipe for Lemon Polish Sugar Cookies to incorporate soaking white whole wheat flour.


    5 Jessica @ Delicious Obsessions March 16, 2011 at 12:29 am

    I added my Stout Beef Stew recipe – just in time for St. Patty’s day! Thanks for hosting this! :)


    6 Amanda D March 16, 2011 at 12:29 am

    Thanks for hosting. I linked Chicken Cheddar Hoagies a fast and easy dinner!


    7 Ravi March 16, 2011 at 12:30 am

    ingredients – manufacturers golden opportunity to mislead and misinform – don’t get caught~!

    (ps – the best foods only have ONE ingredient – ;-0)


    8 Sharon March 16, 2011 at 12:43 am

    Hello, thanks for hosting! I’m linking up the latest post in the Herbal Medicine Chest series about making herbal gelatins, chewables and lozenges,


    9 Stanley Fishman March 16, 2011 at 1:12 am

    My post this week is a St. Patrick’s Day recipe for grassfed prime rib made with green ingredients and Jameson Irish whiskey. Happy St. Patrick’s Day, Kelly!


    10 Kim(Cook IT Allergy Free) March 16, 2011 at 1:22 am

    Hi Kelly! My link this week is for the easiest meyer lemon roasted chicken. 6 ingredients!
    Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Thanks for letting me join in this week!


    11 hellaD March 16, 2011 at 3:19 am

    Thanks for hosting. I’ve linked up some foods to detoxify radiation poisoning. Heart goes out to all the Japanese. Luckily they already eat a lot of seaweed and miso soup in Japan. Traditionally made miso has the best healing powers–must be all that good fermentation.


    12 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) March 16, 2011 at 3:57 am

    Hi Kelly! This week I am sharing my recipe for Pizza Flavors Stuffed Mushrooms. Lots of great flavors and they are easy to make!
    Thanks for hosting!


    13 Dori March 16, 2011 at 4:11 am

    This week I am sharing Gluten-Free: Questions & Answers.
    Thanks Kelly!


    14 Kimberly Hartke March 16, 2011 at 5:55 am

    What is a parent’s responsibility for their childs physical activity? Guest blogger Tim Huntley explores this on my blog today. He shares really great ideas and a fun viral video on the subject!


    15 Soli March 16, 2011 at 6:55 am

    Hi everyone. This week I am sponsoring a sort of “real food confessional.” I admit to some things I know aren’t really good for me or fit in with real food, but I still like them. I’m encouraging others to share as well! None of us are “perfect” in our diets and it’s good to remember.


    16 Ray - Pure Spontaneity March 16, 2011 at 7:06 am

    I made an excellent Chocolate Custard made with coconut milk that we have for desert after having a classic roast beef.


    17 City Share March 16, 2011 at 7:14 am

    Thanks for hosting the blog hop. This week I’m sharing our anniversary dinner that was chock full of ogran meats, butter and delicious meats.


    18 Kristia@Family Balance Sheet March 16, 2011 at 7:19 am

    Roasted garlic is my new favorite food and I’ve slathered it on pizza: Roasted Garlic, Sun-Dried Tomato & Olive Pizza.

    thanks for the linkup.


    19 Grace March 16, 2011 at 7:21 am

    This week I shared a recipe for soaked whole wheat oatmeal raisin cookies! Yum!


    20 Adrienne March 16, 2011 at 7:22 am

    Thanks again for hosting, Kelly!

    I have shared my family’s delicious recipe for Homemade Protein Bars. They are easy to make, adaptable for special diets (as always :)) and full of great nutrients in addition to the protein. They can be either topped with a chocolate or carob topping that is made with coconut oil and seed or nut butter. Enjoy!


    21 Mary March 16, 2011 at 8:06 am

    Made some awesome sourdough breakfast cookies this morning! So good.


    22 Sara March 16, 2011 at 8:25 am

    Thanks for hosting another wonderful Real Food Wednesday! I shared my recent posts on soil testing in your gardens, soaked raisin-pecan-oat bread, and balsamic honey mustard salad dressing.


    23 Therese - Artistta March 16, 2011 at 8:47 am

    Kelly thank you for hosting and as usual there looks to be some great posts up already!

    Last week I shared my post “a look through the 20th century and how our eating habits changed.” This week I’m sharing part 2. This is going to be a new ongoing series on my blog about real food. I’ll be looking at food as it used to be versus what is sold to us today and share the changes, benefits, nutritional and so forth on the differences.


    24 Jenn V. March 16, 2011 at 8:51 am

    #49 – A recent post all about SALT. Kelly, Thanks for hosting!


    25 Belinda @zomppa March 16, 2011 at 8:54 am

    Thanks for hosting! I need some time to try each of these.


    26 Michelle March 16, 2011 at 9:02 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! I have left a chai tea recipe that is super easy and the only sweetener is raw honey! :)


    27 Crunchy Pickle March 16, 2011 at 9:07 am
    28 Lisa @ Happy in Dole Valley March 16, 2011 at 9:32 am

    Thanks for hosting! Always so much inspiration to be found here. :) Today I’m linking up our latest muffin which tastes just like a peanut butter cookie only with less sugar. Stop by and give it a try! Blessings to all.


    29 Crystal March 16, 2011 at 9:32 am

    How to make chicken stock the easy way–in your crock-pot!


    30 Miz Helen March 16, 2011 at 9:47 am

    I always enjoy all the wonderful healthy food at this party. Thank you for hosting and have a great day!


    31 Ellen Hahn March 16, 2011 at 9:54 am

    Thanks for hosting! This is my first time here . . . this morning I posted some strong evidence for feeding our babies (after breastmilk, of course!) a traditional hunter-gatherer diet free of cereal grains.


    32 Danielle @ Analytical Mom March 16, 2011 at 10:29 am

    I finally found the perfect whole wheat bread recipe! It is soft and sandwich-able! Delicious! Thank you for hosting again this week!


    33 dani March 16, 2011 at 10:31 am

    Added my recipe for grass-fed meatballs on sprouted wheat buns! Thanks!


    34 sherri March 16, 2011 at 10:37 am

    I have started sharing our family’s whole food journey. The first change we made was bread, I have posted my favorite honey whole wheat bread.


    35 chris@getrealchris March 16, 2011 at 10:40 am

    Ok, I know this may sound weird, but Meatballs and Prunes are cooking over at Get Real Chris and they are truly delicious and very easy to make.


    36 Megan March 16, 2011 at 11:10 am

    Just found your hop. Thanks for hosting. I linked up some Irish Beef Hand Pies!


    37 Melissa at Dyno-mom March 16, 2011 at 11:22 am

    Most people buy vacuum sealed bags of corned beef for St. Patrick’s Day, but I am NOT most people. Mine has been happily brining away (well, actually a dry rub) and we are looking forward to eating it. Stop the madness, make your own corned beef! It’s kinda late for this year, but you can always make it next year!

    Thanks for hosting the carnival, Kelly, it’s always fun!


    38 KitchenKop March 18, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Can’t wait to go check this out for next year. I made what I thought was corned beef yesterday, but apparently that “brining” step is pretty important, because we ended up with only a yummy beef roast! LOL!


    39 Lee March 16, 2011 at 11:31 am

    Having access to real food from real farms is so important – but so is having consideration for those who provide it! Just making sure we are all thankful for our great co-ops, markets and farms!


    40 Jenna Hoskinson March 16, 2011 at 11:36 am

    posted some easy cold cereal alternatives I eat in my house. I’d love comments from readers about cold cereal alternatives they eat!


    41 Melissa at Dyno-mom March 16, 2011 at 11:38 am

    Sorry to be a pain but #65 the Vegan sloppy Joes uses canned Manwhich filling sauce and Worcestershire. Is that cool?


    42 KitchenKop March 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    Yes, thanks for telling me, I checked and Manwich has HFCS…..


    43 Melanie, One Wellness March 16, 2011 at 11:47 am

    Do you have any spring gardening tips? Leave a comment at #79.


    44 Laurie March 16, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!

    I finally revved up my jerky gun and made some lean, grassfed beef jerky! It’s pretty tasty, if I do say so myself. The recipe will work for strips of beef, too.


    45 Regis March 16, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    Wow. So many great posts today everyone. If you’re in the mood for some good Indian food, check out Erik’s most recent dish with lamb #86. As always, I give great thanks for such a wonderful community.


    46 Cristina March 16, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    Thank you for hosting, Kelly. I’m sharing a Caribbean Jerk Chicken recipe.


    47 alex@amoderatelife March 16, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    Hey Kel, What a wonderful birthday week I have been having! In my family, it is never only a day! My kids really spoiled me-making up for all the great birthdays I gave them over the years! I am linking up Baby steps to a rockin’ life, more great tips to make life easier and help you find more Me time! Big hugs! Alex


    48 KitchenKop March 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Happy Birthday to youuuuuuu!


    49 Renee @ Loca-Faces March 16, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I posted a short entry about my first cooking adventure in my mom’s home, where I am staying for a few weeks following her open heart surgery. A serious challenge!


    50 KitchenKop March 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Hope your Mom is doing well!


    51 jenna Food WIth Kid Appeal March 16, 2011 at 2:49 pm

    today I’m sharing a reader story of her son’s real red food valentine’s day party, how parents, students, teachers responded and her plan for real green food st. patty’s day party.


    52 Ruth March 16, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I’m sharing my easy solution for finding a healthy substitute for Cream of Something soup in recipes.


    53 Kristin March 16, 2011 at 4:07 pm

    I just found you today and linked up. What a great idea! I’m off to check out your blog!


    54 Chickiepea's Blog: Eating for Autoimmune Health March 16, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, a crunchy, springy, green snack packed full of nutrition AND portable! YAY! Check out my “spirulina crisps” that were inspired by a Go Raw bar.


    55 Coyote Vick March 16, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    I put up my first successful venture into yogurt making. It’s a tiny step, but the first on the journey of a thousand miles.


    56 Amber March 16, 2011 at 5:06 pm

    I shared a custard recipe, a link to an article from WAPF on using up sour milk, and another idea about how to use up eggs.


    57 Melinda March 16, 2011 at 5:44 pm

    I shared a granola recipe and accidently posted it twice, the one that says “Melinda” was an accident. :S sorry!


    58 Lori @ Laurel of Leaves March 16, 2011 at 10:11 pm

    So glad I found your site! Thanks for hosting Real Food Wednesday–I linked up my Garden Egg Salad.


    59 Angela March 16, 2011 at 10:19 pm

    Thank you so much for hosting!


    60 Becky D March 16, 2011 at 10:35 pm

    My first contribution to Real Food Wednesday after lurking for many months!

    Grilled Carne Asada Salad!

    thanks so much for this great site.



    61 Christine March 16, 2011 at 11:17 pm

    Hey Kelly, just wanted to let you know that entry #6 isn’t exactly real food. Donuts made with white flour, white sugar, and Crisco shortening. Yikes!


    62 KitchenKop March 18, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    Yikes! Thanks for telling me!


    63 Farmer's Wyfe (Pumpkin Pie Painter) March 17, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    Hi! This is my first time here, but I know already I’ll LOVE it: I’m on a journey to eating healthier too. I hope my recipe is healthy enough. :)


    64 Dawn March 17, 2011 at 10:25 pm

    Learn about the different cuts of pork chops, and I have shared a great recipe that uses only one pan and easy enough for a week night.


    65 Dawn March 18, 2011 at 5:11 pm

    Thanks for hosting! Does anyone have suggestions for other real/traditional food blog carnivals that are worth checking out?


    66 Lori @ Laurel of Leaves March 23, 2011 at 8:34 pm

    I linked up to some amazing Date Filled Apple Muffins this week. Thanks for hosting!
