Real Food Wednesday 5/18/11


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!

    Hi Kelly. I shared a little secret bone broth bonanza. I have had the same batch of bones in my crock pot and have had *gelatin* from those *same* bones for 12 days now. That’s nearly two weeks of bone broth from the same bones. Mmmm. The crock pot is still on…

    Hi Kelly,

    This week I’m sharing an EASY Chocolate Mousse & A Love Story! In celebration of my anniversary, I shared how hubby and I met in the Navy 21 years ago and the rough seas we had to navigate when we first got together….war, long distance romance, reunited love, etc.

    Hope you have a GREAT week!!

    Thank you, Kelly! I’m sharing the meal I made last night and calling it Salsa Supper. It’s a loose recipe for a one-dish meal that is flexible and tasty.

    Whew! It has been a while…. Hopefully I remembered how to link up :) Shared a children’s book we read today that made me think of you Kelly! We’re on GAPS so not drinking milk, but we just found a source so we can start making our own yogurt. Slowly but surely…. :)

    I have missed a couple weeks but good to be back, thanks for hosting again Kelly. We were recently in Portland Oregon and are just delighted with the diverse number of food carts there! Of course many of them were vegan or gluten-free, which wasn’t quite what I was looking for, being on the GAPS diet, but there were plenty of International and home cooked traditional foods. Seems to be a really great way to boost a local economy, similar to the underground market clubs that are springing up all over the place.

    I submitted a lovely post on 3 must have kitchen gadgets. I own 2 and am buying the other one next week! Two of them are bound to save you a ton of money and hassel ;)

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. Today I shared a post on how I used an extra kombucha scoby to cure my son’s cradle cap. I’m sure those of use who brew kombucha have wondered what to do with excess scobys. I suspect it would help with regular dandruff, too. Strange, but true. :-)

    Oops! I am #31 AND #32! Maybe you could, um…fix that?
    I LOVE Real Food Wednesdays….always so much fun to see what others around the world are cookin’ up in their kitchen!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly. Eat to Learn has concluded for the year, phew. What a huge ambitious program. And successful. Fresh fruit consumption was up 14% and raw broccoli up 80%! From just a few minutes of content on morning announcements for 7 months. It is possible to teach kids to eat fruits and vegetables in the school environment with minimal exposure instruction. If you have time, please stop by and leave a comment on my post. I’m hoping the piece will be read by district peeps, it would be nice for them to read many comments of support and awe! Who knows, maybe more schools will adapt this programming in the future. With a bunch of “i wish my school would do this for my kids’ would go a long way. Thanks in advance :) -Jenna

    Hi RFW gang!

    Hi Kelly!
    My last post includes 2 recipes for artichokes. 1 stuffed. 1 smothered in garlic and olive oil with a delicious dipping sauce. Just couldn’t make up my mind. Glad I didn’t, because they both came out awesome in my new pressure cooker! Thanks for hosting!

    Paleo Brownies: a recipe reworked from my childhood. They are grain-free, dairy-free and use honey and dates as sweeteners, and they are delicious! Let me know what you think!

  13. says

    Today I am sharing a recipe for Guilt Free Chicken Nuggets. A wonderful alternative to the nasty chicken nuggets you can buy frozen or at the drive through. Freeze up a big batch to have on hand! Thanks for hosting Kelly!

  14. says

    I’m sharing a super easy snack recipe – you don’t need any special equipment and it only has a few ingredients – including lots of healthy fat!

    This carnival is so much fun, thanks for hosting it, Kelly! I am sooo excited this week. I have worked very hard to develop an Idiot Proof Sourdough recipe that is tall (NOT flat), light, fluffy, tender and mild. It is waaay easy to bake a perfect sourdough loaf with no commercial yeast and no white flour. Try it!

  16. says

    No recipe this week but rather a discussion about real food. The USDA dietary guidelines have seeped into the most alarming places – we need to spread the word on what healthy living REALLY means!

    This is my second post. Made this delicious Chickpea Noodle Soup this weekend, a healthy vegetarian soup with Persian flavors. Had to share!

    #75 – Continuing the series on Non-Toxic Personal Care, today I began discussing haircare. Important topic, especially for us ladies. (And very important to teach our kids and teens!)

    Hi, Ladies! Today we link over to our post on yogurt making. I have made yogurt in the home for several years now..and a few methods stick out as my favorites. Hope you find our experience helpful.
    Thanks for all your wonderful shares (and for hosting) it is great to read all your beautiful blogs.

    I’ve started making sour cream using fresh cream and milk kefir grains.

    I can’t wait ’til “rest time” to sit and go through this week’s recipes!

    Today I share about a documentary film project which will blow the lid off the prevailing wisdom of modern societies. By digging deep into the subject. one American journalist is unearthing The Perfect Human Diet.

    A Canadian farmer’s recent feeding experiment proves the filmmakers point.

    Real foodies! Please join for our weekly Weekend Gourmet blog carnival every Monday!

    Hi Kelly,
    I’ve been getting lots of greens in my CSA food box lately and so today I brought out the dehydrator to make my own kale chips… and boy are they not only tasty but also really easy to make! Check out the link to see how I did it!

    Hi, Kelly. Thanks so much for hosting an awesome blog carnival! So many recipes; so little time! This week I’m sharing my recipe for gluten-free (grain-free) red enchiladas. We think they taste as good as the authentic version. Easy recipe!

    Hi Kelly! I’m new to blogging. Hopefully, I am doing this right. If not, let me know. I am sharing my favorite homemade mayonnaise recipe. It took a few tries to come up with one I liked, but this is it and it’s simple!

  27. Sally says

    Sorry, I posted twice, because I couldn’t figure out how do get the title of the post to show up and not my name. Does the title go in the name area?

    Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to
    make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why
    throw away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something informative to
