Real Food Wednesday 3/16/11


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.

    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.

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

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

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

  12. says

    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.

    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!

      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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    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.
