Real Food Wednesday 6/15/11


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’m sharing my recipe for Nettle Party Dip. It’s like the spinach dip that was popular in years past, except this one is made with (foraged, free, and super nutritious) nettles, and goat cheese. Nom.

    My post this week is about how butter is full of nutrition, in spite of what the government’s “MyPlate” says about it. Butter is one of the most nutrient-dense foods!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly!
    I wrote a Beginner’s Guide to Healthier Eating after many conversations with friends who don’t know where to start. I’m hoping people will comment with their own suggestions for beginner’s.

    HI Kelly. Great idea. I posted a link with just my name — I guess I should have put in a title. The post is about how I manage a large number of spices, especially since I buy them at the bulk store in small amounts. Love to hear what people think.

    I have shared two great farm-to-table vegan recipes this week:

    – grilled vegetables with sassy green sauce and lemon balm herbal soda
    – swiss chard alfredo (vegan)

    Thank you for hosting!

    Happy cooking!

    I shared 2 recipes for homemade refrigerator biscuits that are great to make with kids, and homemade breakfast “sausages.”

    Thanks for hosting!

    Today’s post that I am submitting is on grains and why you should ditch them NOW! You could possibly save your life or someone elses.

    With that being said understand that I use the 80/20 rule which I talk about in today’s post on my blog.

    Thanks for hosting this. I shared an easy chickpea recipe that can be used as a side dish or a main dish! I’m looking forward to looking at what others posted!

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. Today I linked up a post on pizza flavored sourdough crackers. All my friends were impressed when I whipped them out for tasting out our food and nutrition class. They couldn’t believe they were homemade.

    I just shared my latest post, Farm Aid Documentary Ingredients and Dinner at Veggie Planet. The documentary was great and it was followed by an interesting panel discussion. We went to a local vegetarian restaurant after the panel, so I included that, too.

    oh, I’m looking forward to the bits from the 1841 cookbook! Old cookbooks and recipes fascinate me.

    I posted up a great late summer salad featuring aspargus, potato, garden greens, kidney beans, and shallots with lemon and herbs. Very tasty, not too heavy, and pretty easy for a main dish salad.

    Thanks for hosting this great recipe exchange again….so many great recipes.

    Today I linked up my perfect summer dish….Bruschetta. Hope you enjoy it.

    #52-Almost Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls…….Real Food? REALLY? Sounds yummy, however, I don’t think this recipe can be classified as real food. UNLESS it could possibly be reworked with sourdough, unrefined sugar etc.
    I realize that homemade is usually a better choice than store bought but maybe Real Food Weds isn’t the avenue for this one.

    Hi everyone,

    I’m sharing a recipe for homemade Split Pea, lentil and barley soup. It’s easy and doesn’t take a lot of time to prepare. And it’s great for vegetarians too.

    Thank you Kelly for this opportunity to post. I’ve learned a lot from this website.

    Wow, it is nice to be back and very nice to see all the good cooking happening! I am working on a series of posts on how I get it all done with ten kids running amok. It takes work, but really isn’t bad and the pay off is worth it. See you all around your own cyber-pads at naptime for the kiddos!

    It’s nearly summertime, and the taste of soured, crisp pickles with fresh dill is something that ushers in that warm weather for our family! Hope you enjoy this easy recipe!

    I’m still swimming in greens so I wrote today about a tasty way to use up more greens. I made a quiche with swiss chard, gruyere cheese, sorrel, fennel, green onions, bacon, cream, eggs etc all on a almond/coconut ghee crust… yummy, yummy!

    This post describes my impressions of the Olney Farmers Market, not far outside of Washington, DC., including some of the attractive vendors there. And then, a quick snippet about the first canning of the season — strawberries!
