Real Food Wednesday 6/8/11


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!

    I’ve been dreaming about sweet wild morels for the better part of a year now. After reading about people all over the country finding their morel treats, the rains finally came to the desert prairie, and I got my prize. Happy RFW all.

    Today I’m sharing grain-free & Gluten-Free Chocolate Chip Cookies. They’re made with coconut flour, coconut sugar, and coconut oil!
    Thank you for hosting Kelly!
    Best wishes,

    My post this week is about the Bulgarians, who were once the healthiest people on earth. Their traditional diet was very similar to that of the healthy peoples studied by Dr. Weston A. Price.

    #13 – Thanks so much for hosting, Kelly! I’m leaving my review of ‘Against the Grain,’ a new grain-free cookbook from Modern Alternative Mama. Enter to win a free one!

    I’ve been studying our emergency preparedness plans and am concerned that so much of the food we’ve put away is “dead food.” I discuss how to keep probiotics and enzymes in our food and share three of my favorite “live food” recipes.

    I LOVE bacon. I only eat about a lb. per month. Find out the 5 reasons why in my blog post. If you are eating it daily then you may want to consider eating a bit less…

    I ain’t dissing bacon but I think some people need to take a step back.

    Thank you for hosting “Real Food Wednesday.” I have shared a few of my recipes that were cooked this week: pea shoot millet, lemon balm and arugula orzo and an arugula and asparagus grilled pizza (tasty and beautiful!).

    Happy cooking!

    I was surprised how easy it is to sprout wheat berries and grind them into flour in a coffee grinder! Thanks for hosting, Kelly!

    I shared an article that a friend of mine wrote as a guest blog post for me on her experience with going sugar free. I made a mistake though and said “dairy” free the first time though, please excuse the double post!

    Hi Kelly!

    I’ve shared my BLT Flatbread Pizza this week. These flatbread pizzas are easy to make, addictive and use very litte crust (grain) as I make them really thin and crispy. Now that I’m experimenting with low or controlled carb (I have several posts on this), I’d be interested in how many carbs it is…because everything else topped on it is low or no carb.

    Have a GREAT week!! :)

    Today I posted about a way to make little green cubes as a way to get some cooked greens into smoothies and also a way to whittle down the huge mound of greens that I am getting in my CSA produce box each week. It is win/win for me, hope it can work for you too!

    I shared my latest post, The New USDA Food Plate Replaces the Food Pyramid. It’s a quick response to the plate and includes a list of plant-based protein sources you can use to fill that purple protein section of the plate.

    Shanon, there is a Rhubarb BBQ sauce recipe out there that I’m going to work on converting into a healthy recipe. Today, I am posting about how to start your 1st batch of Beef Bone Broth using a method where you can get up to 12 batches (or more) from the same bones. You keep making it until the bones disintegrate. A nice, nutritious gelatin can be derived from this recipe if made correctly.

    Just a comment – In response to Greek Yogurt Fruit Dip, Real Food does not include Sugar Free Pudding mix, Sugar Free flavored syrups or 0% fat yogurts. Maybe an option would be to try flavoring a full fat yogurt with honey and cinnamon and maybe an organic extract flavoring instead? Then use as a dip with the fresh fruit. The aspartame in the sugar free versions is not so good. Just a thought….

    Kelly!! Thanks again for hosting! I’m contributing how to make homemade sweet potato chips – super simple, super delish and yes I’m addicted to them!

  16. says

    I almost didn’t include it because it’s not a recipe, but it’s about real food and may help someone. I posted notes that I made while watching an online video about liver health. There are some liver superfoods and other recommendations to support your liver health. Scroll down to “What Else? “Love Your Liver”” about half-way down the post.

    Ooops! I shared a recipe for Flourless Chocolate Cake. But I put my name instead of “Flourless Chocolate Cake @ The Primalist”, thinking there’d be some next step :P Possible to fix?

    Hi Kelly, As a beekeeper I particularly want to alert people to research showing that the majority of “honey” sold in grocery stores, drug stores, and big box stores is NOT HONEY.
