Real Food Wednesday 5/4/11

May 4, 2011 · 68 comments


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!

    I’m looking forward to another great week! I included a recipe for bell pepper stuffed with crab and deviled egg (more left-over Easter eggs), both great foods for depression foods for depression.

    When I was out for my bike ride today, I noticed that a lot of the local plants had been sprayed recently. So I snapped some pics and wrote up some advice about how to spot plants which have been sprayed. Don’t miss the tips left by Jim McDonald in the comments section; excellent info!

    Hi Kelly, this is my first time participating, but I’ve been enjoying reading last weeks entries. You can see I stuffed up though and accidentally entered myself twice, the first time taking the form at face value and just putting my name! So can you delete that one please (no. 25)?
    Thanks for hosting!


    12 Renee @ Loca-Faces May 4, 2011 at 6:43 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. This hop sure has grown!

    Today I’m sharing a recipe for Gluten Free Banana Bread from the Spunky Coconut cook book. It uses coconut flour and plenty of eggs and turned out really rich and moist.

    Get out of the box and make your own chocolate pudding! The white flour is a compromise, but then it is pudding after all!


    19 Sarah Smith May 4, 2011 at 8:28 am

    I linked to a post on using fermented foods to treat heartburn plus a recipe for nourishing homemade pizza sauce. Thanks!


    20 Trina May 4, 2011 at 8:55 am

    my readers asked me to share the resources I’m using to learn more about herbal remedies. I’ve found a DVD and several books that are great!


    21 shannon May 4, 2011 at 9:01 am

    With reading all these blogs, I don’t have time for my own but just love Real Food Wednesday as I’ve found several recipes I’ve enjoyed. Hoping someone will post what to do with Rhubarb without adding 3 cups of sugar. :)

    26 robin May 4, 2011 at 10:11 am

    I’m a first timer! Linked to one of my attempts to make a real food version of a popular mass-produced dessert (this time it’s Pop Tarts). Hope that fits within the parameters of the carnival.


    27 jenna Food WIth Kid Appeal May 4, 2011 at 10:16 am

    I got a lot of inquiries about the natural gum i bought for my kids at Easter, so I wrote a post about the gum I found online. happy wed. thanks for hosting.

    I finally harvested the sauerkraut that I put in the crock in mid March and boy was it worth the wait! I made a video on March 20th of when I put the veggies in the crock and today’s post shows a video of me taking the kraut out of the crock. It always amazes me how you can take boring cabbage and just add some salt and a few other veggies, and then just let it “rot” on the counter for a few weeks and you have a gourmet symphony of flavor of the joining of sweet, salty, sour and crunchy! Our family and friends are enjoying the fruits of this labor!


    29 Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS May 4, 2011 at 11:29 am

    Hello, all! I’m sharing a quick video to show how breaking a cheesemaking rule is a good thing to do in a traditional kitchen full of other cultures. Have a great week!

    Hello everyone, I recently found Real Food Wedsnesday and it’s wonderful. So many great links…thanks everyone who shares..and to Kelly for hosting.


    31 Kelsy @ The Liberated Kitchen May 4, 2011 at 12:35 pm

    Whoops! My link says Oven Fried Chicken, but I really meant Pork Fennel Sausage Patties! Oh well.

    My sausage patties are SCD/GAPS/Paleo/WAPF legal and my kids loved ‘em. There were no leftovers last night!


    32 Andrea (Andreas Kitchen) May 4, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    Hi Kelly! I am sharing my recipe for Chocolate Coconut Macaroons. These cookies are naturally gluten free because there is no flour.
    Thanks for hosting!


    33 Melissa @ Dyno-mom May 4, 2011 at 1:21 pm

    My post today isn’t a recipe but is about a priest with a ministry to encourage parents to cook real food for their children and eat family meals together. I know I am preaching to the choir here, but sometimes we need a little encouragement. Well, at least I do! Thanks to Kelly and everyone here who takes the time to do something about what their kids are eating! Way to go moms!


    34 Amber May 4, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    I posted a recipe for scones w/whole wheat flour, adapted from Sue Gregg’s Lunches and Snacks cookbook.


    35 Katie @ Wellness Mama May 4, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    Love all the great links this week! Thanks for hosting. It isn’t specifically about real food, but I also posted this week on “Does the Bible Say We Should Eat Grains?”


    36 Heather May 4, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    Posted an article about our experiences with conventional and organic foods. Including the dirty dozen.


    37 lydia May 4, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    Thanks for hosting another great roundup. I’m sharing two real food recipes today, both breakfast ideas. One is for a fun jumbo pancake; the other is for some awesome Nutty Granola Clusters I just discovered.


    39 Garden Variety Mama May 4, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! This week I’m blogging about the evils of Teflon and the awesomeness of cast iron, including how to shop for a cast iron pan and how to take care of it.


    40 Rhi@The Challenged Cook May 5, 2011 at 7:04 am

    Thanks for hosting. I’ve given you a beanloaf with gravy. I can’t believe I made a soy-free vegan roast dinner, and it was delicious.


    41 Linda West Eckhardt May 5, 2011 at 9:55 am

    reading the recipe for home made pizza sauce I have to say. I never saw tomato paste in a jar. Never. Better to whiz up Italian Pomi’s in a blender or food processor. And ixnay on the onion powder. If you’re gonna be pure, girlfriend, just GRATE some fresh onion. The flavor will come alive.
    Keep up the good work and halloos from Everybody Eats News. Today, we’ve got Cinco de Mayo drinks both alcoholic and non, but both simply sustainable. xoxo


    42 Linda West Eckhardt May 5, 2011 at 9:56 am

    come on over and take a ride with me. sustainable recipes. sustainable life. We cover it all at Everybody Eats News.
