Real Food Wednesday 7/20/2011

July 20, 2011 · 66 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!

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about a new study that confirms that people who eat grassfed meat have more omega-3s in their blood. And grassfed meat tastes better than fish oil!

    Looking for gluten free cookies?

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! This week I left my “recipe” for intestinal health using natural foods.

    Happy Wednesday, always happy to share here. This week I have a guest post comparing local produce with what you find in the supermarket. Really, there is no comparison.

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! This week I’m sharing a potato salad that even mayo-haters will love! It’s laced with garlic, herbs, green onions, olive oil, and balsamic vinegar. Unbelievably simple. :)

    Grilled fruit is my favorite summer time dessert. This week, I grilled pineapple.

    Thanks for the linkup.

    I thought I was so smart, making my own lemonade………I got heartburn. LOL

    8 Megh July 20, 2011 at 7:56 am

    Thanks for hosting! I’m doing more GAPS posts this week… slowly working through the stages. Have a great week!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly! This week I’ve posted a favorite summer recipe for Garlic-Lemon Chicken with Corn & Summer Squash Penne… great way to use up some of those over-abundant summer squashes.

    Don’t think #26 counts as “real food.”

    11 Sarah Smith July 20, 2011 at 8:31 am

    I linked to a recipe for cheese and veggie cakes, perfect for using up the copious summer squash at this time of year. I also linked to a post about using a food preservation spreadsheet to keep track of how much food there is and how much to eat each month.

    A recent camping adventure to munising, michigan, provided an opportunity to create farm-to-table recipes that were easy to pack in our coolers and cook while camping. All recipes are gluten-free, dairy free, preservative free and made with farm fresh and organic ingredients.

    Thank you for hosting, enjoy the camping recipes!

    13 Kim July 20, 2011 at 9:14 am

    Once again, this is shaping up to be a great carnival! So excited to see what everyone posts!

    14 Jen July 20, 2011 at 9:16 am

    Ha! I’m an idiot! First time posting with Mr. Linky and I wrote my name instead of what the post was about. I don’t know if you can erase, but I am going to try again. I also hope that I linked properly???? Please let me know if it is not sufficient and I will fix accordingly!

    15 dani July 20, 2011 at 9:22 am

    Added a post about my issues with soy. Thanks for hosting!

    16 Mindy @ The Purposed Heart July 20, 2011 at 9:25 am

    Hi Kelly! Thanks for hosting RFW! I am sharing the winning recipe from The Purposed Heart’s Real Food Appetizer Recipe Contest – Creamy Cucumber Dip. It is PERFECT for summer!

    17 Beth July 20, 2011 at 9:32 am

    I posted a food log of what we *really* ate – maybe it will encourage someone who is struggling to make it all come together food-wise. I’m trying to feed my dc nourishing food while having to make compromises. I can’t wait to have my own kitchen!

    18 Elisabeth @ Treasuring the Moments July 20, 2011 at 9:35 am

    I have recently researched strawberries and what commercial growers do to these delectable berries. I submitted my post on Strawberries – Harmful or Beneficial to Your Health? – Part I & II.

    It sure makes it hard to eat bad food when you know how it’s grown and what is in it!

    19 Laurie July 20, 2011 at 9:58 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. Today I linked up a post on preserving asparagus three ways (freezing, drying and lacto-fermenting). I know it’s a little past prime asparagus season for most of us, but the techniques will work for many other vegetables as well.

    20 Lisa July 20, 2011 at 10:13 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly. Sharing our latest muffin recipe which uses freshly picked organic raspberries – yum. :) Blessings!

    21 Roseann July 20, 2011 at 10:26 am

    Thank you so much for hosting this every week Kelly. Just linked up a recipe for Cole Slaw, that doesn’t use mayonnaise. It really makes a delicious summer treat. Enjoy!!

    22 Ashley July 20, 2011 at 10:52 am

    Hi Real Food Wednesday gang! This week I share a list of delicious recipes I’ve tried from other Real Food Bloggers, some of you may see my link to you in this post!

    Have a great week, and thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    23 Jill @ The Prairie Homestead July 20, 2011 at 10:55 am

    I’m sharing my recipe for homemade whole wheat sourdough tortillas today! So much more economical than buying organic tortillas from the store! Thanks for hosting!

    24 Michelle at Openeyehealth July 20, 2011 at 11:09 am

    I left a recipe for sausage gravy- so easy and delicious! Thanks for hosting!

    25 Melissa @ Dyno-mom July 20, 2011 at 11:37 am

    Thanks again, Kelly! Today I linked up to a post on the latest research on good ol’ saturated fats and the roles of fat soluble vitamins.

    Hi Kelly,

    This blog carnival provides a wonderful resource with its many links to the creative work of such fascinating like minded people. I love it!

    27 Liberty July 20, 2011 at 4:27 pm

    always glean great ideas and recipe here – love it!

    28 Primal Toad July 20, 2011 at 4:51 pm

    Do you guys think its worth it to eat junk food once in a while? That is the question I ask in my blog post submission.

    29 Katie July 21, 2011 at 2:31 am

    Mayo not needed to make a ‘tarter sauce’ for fish… Yogurt and fresh chives are lovely. This is a great event!

    30 Barb @ A Life in Balance July 21, 2011 at 9:08 am

    Thanks for hosting! I shared a post about my battle with a catbird over our peaches, and a recipe for honey spiced peaches.

    31 Primal Toad July 23, 2011 at 7:23 am

    Paleo tacos and pizza…. yum!
