Real Food Wednesday 3/2/11


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! (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 my sister’s yam recipe which she converted to sugar free for ME this year at our Thanksgiving get together. Is that sisterly love or what?

    Thanks for hosting. I am sharing my Pumpkin Spice Egg Puff recipe. My youngest child says “egg puffs are his favorite muffins”. I love this healthy alternative to muffins.

    Posting this week about the beauty of real maple syrup, the travesty of the fake stuff and how maple sugaring events connect kids with food.

    Thanks, Kelly!

    I shared my Coconut Brownie recipe. No sugar, no grains, but very rich! I enjoyed them this weekend, with free range eggs, organic butter and hazelnuts!

    Thanks for the opportunity to post and share real food ideas. These kinds of things are great for new bloggers, such as, Real Food Dudes. We look forward to being part of the community.

    Hey Kel, kids are back in school after the break and now I get a bit of a break, except tomorrow my Sam takes her road test! This seems even more grown up than the college acceptance letters she is getting! Oh how time flies! Linking up my baby steps to a rockin’ life. Loads of great healthy and frugal tips! hugs! Alex

    Dr. Jill Tieman was inspired to start blogging by our social media panel at Wise Traditions conference last November. I am pleased to have her as a guest blogger today!

    So glad we motivated a number of people to get serious about using social media to raise consciousness about real food!

    Hi Kelly! My Herbal Medicine Chest post is not really about food but the hydrosols found there are great for flavoring. Rosewater is the most famous hydrosol and so easy to make at home. Thanks for hosting!

    Above is a link to one of our favorite whole food desserts. We have eaten tons (or at least pounds) of it ourselves and have even shared it with many non-real-foodie types who have loved it as well. I will say it is a bit addictive, but really gets some good nut and seed butters as well as coconut oil into your diet. Enjoy!

    Hi Kelly!
    Our recipe for today is Cream of Carrot soup. It is hands down one of my favorite soups ever! :)
    Have a great day!

    Hi Kelly!

    This week I had a lot of fun making this mocha cinnamon coffee to enjoy with my husband and then sharing the recipe on LifeInk Foodie. Besides being cheaper than a coffeehouse drink, this was made with organic, decaffeinated coffee and no refined sugar!

    We were out of town last weekend, so I wrote a bit about Disney’s Living with the Land attraction that takes you through their sustainable farming research. Pretty interesting.

    In the meantime, my Winter CSA resumed last weekend after a two week hiatus for lack of growth and I’m now completely inundated with lettuce. We’ve been eating lettuce every day and I’m thinking a bunch may still end up in the compost. Having said that, it’s local, organic, and yummy!

    thanks for hosting kelly. this week i’m sharing a single veggie salad recipe that i’ve used in several food/kid/parent demos. it’s my “come on now, cooking with kids is, fun and delish and guess what? kids will probably taste it if they helped make it” demo. it’s hard to resist the opportunity to eat carrot snakes? or carrot ribbons? who doesn’t like to dump, pour and shake up salad dressing ingredients in an old jam jar?

    Today is another Simple Real Food Goal–and this one is REALLY simple! I’m offering some of my favorite tips on how to help yourself drink more water.

    I finally made homemade pasta. I don’t know what took me so long, probably because I was intimindated because I do not have a roller, machine or extruder. But I do have a serrated bread knife and a willing three year old companion! And now I don’t have to buy noodles anymore. Take THAT food industry!!

    I am so excited to find this resource of whole food recipes. I posted my spicy sweet potato fries a staple at our house! I can’t wait to try out all of these other great recipes.
