Real Food Wednesday 5/4/11


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!

    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!

    I linked up a recipe for sugar free strawberry syrup that goes great with yogurt, nuts, or ice cream. Thanks for hosting Real Food Wednesday!

    Thank you for this great blog share! Today I was able to finish up a post about food choices with a great contribution from a friend working in Fairtrade! Choose real food!

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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. :)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    Wow, the carnival is hopping!! I am contributing a recipe for gluten/grain free oven baked chicken – remember ‘it’s shake and bake, and I helped’ Here is real food version real healthy!!!

    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.

    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
