Real Food Wednesday 4/6/11


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!  (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn more about this blog carnival.)  Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating!  (This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning.)


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?  If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link.  (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 recipe posted 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!

    My post this week is a recipe for traditional fish broth which provides a natural source of food-based iodine. Due to the disaster in Japan, many people want to increase their iodine intake these days.

    Thanks again, Kelly!

    I am sharing one of my family’s favorite “REAL” desserts — Silky Smooth Bean Fudge. Adaptable for special needs, though it is already GF, DF and SF (and allergy free too). Enjoy – and don’t forget to degas those beans! :-)

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks for hosting!
    I review all the basics for homemade mayonnaise on my blog this week – the absolute minimum ingredients needed, optional add-ins, how to fix broken mayo, and how to use 6 different kitchen tools to make it – plus my favorite that does it all in a canning jar for little cleanup.

    I’ve been super inspired this past week about minimalism, and simplifying my home. After attacking my kitchen, I wanted to share some ways to unclutter your kitchen and make it easier to prepare real food.

    I have shared a powerful video today of a TED talk by the author of The Unhealthy Truth. Robyn O’Brien is inspirational and important advocate for safer. less processed, no GMO foods.

    PLEASE share this video widely. Very important information that every American needs to know!!

    I really do love Wednesdays! Today on my blog I am showing step-by-step how to make lacto-fermented ginger-ale using wild yeasts. So if you have always wanted to make natural soda and you don’t have kefir grains, this is for you. You build your starter with yeasts from the air, trapped and enslaved to ferment your drinks. It’s a great system.

    I’ll be checking you all out at nap-time! Thanks for hosting, Kelly!

    I found some affordable raw/organic peanuts and posted the directions for preparing them.

    I can’t wait to get a chance to go through this week’s recipes.

    Thanks for hosting again Kelly! I had the preschool snack duty for my daughter’s class this week and instead of going the goldfish route, I’ve been introducing the kids to new foods every day. Today I made Cherry/Choco/Coco balls which are a snack made with medjool dates, dried cherries, coconut cream concentrate, coconut oil and lots of good food to give kids and adults too real energy for the day! Hope you’ll stop by to have a peek!

    Oh… why can’t I get this right!!! I posted Cherry/Choco/Coco balls on yur blog first but somehow the link goes to an old post on radiation reduction soup…. and most people won’t know to click on snacks to get to the right post….so the second entry of Cherry/Choco/Coco balls is the RIGHT Link… Kelly when you see this if you can delete the wrong Cherry/Choco/Coco post which is the first one… I’d be much obliged! Someday I’ll figure this all out!

    I guess I need to get a blog!!
    Breakfast Scotch Eggs! 1 to 1/2 oz of homemade breakfast sausage/raw in patty form for each hard boiled egg. I squish the sausage patty out flat between plastic wrap then roll it around the hard boiled egg. You can roll it in almond flour (1/2 TB) if you like, but not necessary. Cooked when browned
    Put a little bit of olive oil in a pan and brown the scotched egg! I like to eat with a bit of mustard.
    With the almond flour is 299 cal/25.2Fat/2Carb/15.2Protein
    Very hearty and filling
    Home made sausage is simply ground pork with to taste: sage, nutmeg, pepper, red chili flakes

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! I’m sharing an easy and fast alternative to kraft macaroni and cheese – for those times when you just don’t know what to make for dinner!

  13. says

    Kelly, I posted my Amish Egg Noodles Recipe and secrets to getting them to work through a Kitchen Aid extruder attachments or rolling by hand. So far I’ve only made them 1/2 and 1/2 white and whole wheat flour, but my goal is %100 sprouted wheat flour noodles – OH, yum!

    Great recipes this week! I posted a link to my giveaway for Water Kefir Grains from Cultures for Health. I’ve fallen in love with making Kefir and Kombucha lately and wanted to share the love!

    I am sharing a $1.62 Paleo Low Carb happy meal. My “happy meals” have been a big hit but have yet to create anything special. In just a few weeks they will be quite special. Enjoy whats there now!

    Yea, thats right. I can eat a HEALTHY 650 calorie meal for less than $2. Can you?!

    Well, I’m sneaking in late this week, but it’s still Wednesday somewhere, I think, and I’m chuffed to be number 88! :) Sorry about not linking before….I didn’t know! I did it today (your instructions are perfect, Kelly!). I put your link on my page for Rhubarb Lemon Cake, a lovely creation that came about because I had some rhubarb. I think next year I’m planting some rhubarb. I make this cake with coconut and organic butter and free range eggs, but no grains or sugar. Enjoy!

    Thanks for the linky. I just linked up a video how-to on how to make real (nothing but almonds) almond butter. :)

    I linked to this post at the top of my posting. Thanks again.
