    Hot on the heels of my Garlic and Ginger Roadkill, I’d like to offer up my Cream of Cruddy Old Vegetable and Souring Milk Soup. I’m not trying to gross anyone out (just think of it as Cream of Sweet Potato and Parsnip Soup with an accent of Roasted Garlic and Parsley). Instead, I’d like to illustrate the point of how much money can be saved by not wasting the food that we buy, even when it starts to look less than perfect.

    Hi Kelly, my contribution this week is about the interview done by Bigthink with Nina Planck. It’s so great to see more and more outlets covering topics like this and with smart writers and spokespeople for real food. Go Nina, and go sustainability! Thanks for hosting RFW! :)

    I just discovered your site through your interview with Jimmy Moore. And I love it! I’m really just getting familiar with eating “Real Food” but loving it already. My contribution this week is a Pizza Omelette made with farm fresh eggs, butter, and cheese.

    Thanks again for hosting, Kelly! I’ve given my recipe for chicken pot pie and I’m giving a shout-out to Cheeseslave who’s pie crust recipe I use. It’s the best!

    Hi, Kelly.
    I found yet more bad news about high-fructose corn syrup (which is in thousands of food products). Recent studies show HFCS causes much greater weight gain than table sugar (sucrose). Now, if we could just get it out of school lunches!


    6 Kristia@Family Balance Sheet April 14, 2010 at 7:15 am

    Warm weather = grill season. (I’m a wimp in the winter time…to cold for me) I submitted one of our favorite burger recipes. Thanks for hosting.


    7 Melissa @Cellulite Investigation April 14, 2010 at 7:32 am

    oops, can you tell I just woke up? I meant to title my post “Fiber vs. Flora” (not Fiber vs. Florida!). All the typical anti-cellulite diets recommend high amounts of fiber to keep things moving along. I haven’t read one cellulite book that mentions the importance of developing a healthy intestinal flora for the digestive system. Maybe this is one of the reasons most experts don’t think you can treat cellulite through diet alone.

    Quiche me, you fool! It’s a great way to use up leftovers, low-carb without a crust and single portions cook really fast.


    9 Sarah, The Healthy Home Economist April 14, 2010 at 7:56 am

    One of my all time fav snacks are banana fritters. This recipe I made for the first time over the weekend with almond flour instead .. and I liked it MUCH better than wheat flour. The bananas and almond flavors go very well together! Enjoy!

    My blog is called Spoonfed: Raising kids to think about the food they eat. This post is about the phrase “picky eater” and how it’s become an excuse for not feeding kids real food. I also offer links to some kid-feeding resources that I think get it right.


    11 Holly Hickman from April 14, 2010 at 8:17 am

    Peggy, I think, “Quiche me, you fool!” will carry me through the rest of the week. :)

    Howdy, all!

    I went to Monticello last week and decided to study how Thomas Jefferson ate.

    Fascinating perspectives from a Founding Father!

    Looking forward to perusing these posts! I need some inspiration. :-)

    Try my ginger carrot and miso soup before it gets too warm outside.



    14 Kelly April 14, 2010 at 9:26 am

    Nothing to contribute – just a big thank you to you, Kelly, and all the linky-ed friends… I learn so much from ya’ll!!! :)


    15 gfe--gluten free easily April 14, 2010 at 9:44 am

    I linked up a recipe for simple roasted chickpeas, one of the healthiest and tastiest snacks or side dishes there is. Full of protein and fiber. :-)

    Its a great hump day! I love being a part of Real Food Wednesday! Having a slice of my sourdough bread as I read the other links and it makes me so happy to know others are loving real food just like me!


    17 Soli @ I Believe in Butter April 14, 2010 at 10:02 am

    Since I am dealing with outdoor allergy issues this week (along with a lot of my colleagues), I am looking for stories about healing allergy issues along with any home remedies. Anything to keep me from being chained to the antihistamines!


    18 Janine April 14, 2010 at 10:16 am

    Love these Real Food Wednesdays! I submitted my Bruschetta recipe. So yummy…and easy! My friends down here in the south call it ‘Maters ‘n’ Bread’!! My northern friends think that is just hysterical!


    19 jenna of foodwithkidappeal April 14, 2010 at 10:40 am

    for those of you who used to be picky eaters or are new to the real food transformation, check out my article. bend your mind, change your thoughts so you can like a food you think you hate.


    20 Chandelle April 14, 2010 at 10:56 am

    I shared a recipe for Red Lentil Coconut Soup with Thai Flavors. One of the best things I’ve made in a while!


    21 Joanie April 14, 2010 at 11:22 am

    I found a way to get my little boys to eat grapefruit – yeah! It’s easy and so tasty.


    22 Millie @ Real Food for Less Money April 14, 2010 at 11:27 am

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for hosting. I love seeing what everyone has been up to.
    This week I’m sharing a delicious snack Gingerbread cake that does not use sugar. It is sweetened entirely with mineral rich molasses. So good!


    23 Paula Runyan April 14, 2010 at 11:49 am

    I am giving away a jar of our very own handcrafted Birch Syrup!
    This stuff is super yummy, and twice the work to make, compared to Maple syrup.
    Come on over and check it out.
    We have jars for sale as well!!!!!!


    24 Denise Therese April 14, 2010 at 12:13 pm

    My recipe is the first in a series, called “Recipe Remedies”. Enjoy!


    25 Meg April 14, 2010 at 12:56 pm

    I posted a recipe for gratin dauphinois – potatoes roasted in milk/cream/half-and-half. So good!

    Thanks, as always, for hosting this, Kelly!

    My recent whole food breakfast creation for hot days when we just can’t eat oatmeal: Mix about 2 cups soaked, cooked quinoa with 1 1/2 cups raw grated carrot and about 1/2 cup raisins and toss with 2-3 tbsp raw apple cider vinegar. Store in the fridge. At breakfast time take about 1 cup of this mixture and add a few heaping tablespoons of unsweetened shredded coconut and mix it in with about 1/3 cup of homemade whole milk yogurt. You can add more coconut or a drizzle of maple syrup if you want it sweeter. Sliced banana or other tropical fruit is great on top, or berries if that’s what you have on hand! The flavor of this melange reminds me a bit of that terrible Ambrosia Salad made with marshmallow fluff, coconut, pineapple, and oranges but this is a lot healthier!

    Today I’m reporting on my benefits during the milk diet on PMS. I used to be a chocolate-craving, weeping disaster during that time of the month, but things have improved since going on the milk diet!


    28 Durga Fuller April 14, 2010 at 5:42 pm

    The recipe is for cabbage tonic – used as a replacement for whey for those of us who don’t tolerate dairy. Even raw.

    The post is about integrating health changes with love.

    Enjoy! Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    29 Chaya April 14, 2010 at 6:18 pm

    I am not sure if anyone knows what a kugel s but it is good.


    30 Paula Runyan April 14, 2010 at 8:24 pm

    Wow! Hardly anyone has entered to win our homemade Birch Syrup!
    This stuff is as good as, if not better then, Maple syrup!
    Hurry on over and leave a comment!


    31 Jen @ BigBinder April 14, 2010 at 8:50 pm

    Hi! I’m back!! And it’s lovely to be here. I tried to put a RFW picture in my post, but it kept coming up funny, sorry :(


    32 Iris April 14, 2010 at 9:02 pm

    I’m linking up to a chicken dish that looks fancy but is super easy to make. Balsamic chicken with sweet mushroom gravy. My recipe is gluten free, but you can substitute the sweet white rice flour for regular white flour.


    33 Cori April 14, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    soaked waffle recipe – goodness for the whole family!


    34 Avivah @ Oceans of Joy April 14, 2010 at 10:55 pm

    Today I shared about an experience I had when we tried to begin incubating eggs for the first time, and reflected on how easy it is to make someone feel stupid for assuming they have knowledge they don’t have. It got me thinking about how easy that is to do to someone, and how careful I need to be when talking about real food benefits and preparation techniques to be truly helpful. That means really respecting and appreciating where someone is coming from.


    35 Karen Bannan April 21, 2010 at 12:21 pm

    I love this! I found this site through Spoonfed, my friend Christina’s blog. It prompted me to get involved right away. I wrote about my experience with my local CSA.
