This far into winter, I’m always looking for ways to boost my family’s vitamin D. Shrimp paste, which can be purchased inexpensively at asian markets, is a great option. It adds a wonderful savory flavor to dishes. Just tonight, I used it in a stir-fry with elk and bok choy, and have included a recipe for the sauce.

Ellen@BodyEarth February 3, 2010 at 8:27 AM

Since we’ve always relied heavily on canned organic tomatoes, I was dismayed to learn about BPA in can liners. So, I’ve been trying to track down sources of canned tomatoes (preferably organic) that don’t contain BPA. My post shows the results of my search!

Soli @ I Believe in Butter February 3, 2010 at 8:33 AM

My post is something pointed out to me last week, an article about handling laundry. So happy I am finally putting up material to add to RFW.

Sonja February 3, 2010 at 8:38 AM

hello… no, my post is not about nutella again (I’m taking a while to get the hang of blog techniques…!)… it’s about Food as Sustainer; why food is great but we must treat it well.

Also; thanks for having up the banner for the Wise Traditions visit to London; thanks to the link, I have bought my ticket and am super excited!


Melissa @CelluliteInvestigation February 3, 2010 at 9:22 AM

I’m so excited to have received our first Real Food cellulite success story at the Cellulite Investigation! She wasn’t even trying to treat her cellulite at the time. She made dietary changes for a different symptom, and losing the cellulite was just a side effect! Don’t you love REAL healing!

Peggy February 3, 2010 at 10:09 AM

January was tough for us. I broke a toe and the kids came down with chicken pox! But, the nutritional answer for both includes lots of dark, leafy greens. My post is a recipe for kale made with coconut milk that I could eat just about every day.

Holly from February 3, 2010 at 11:27 AM

I had so much fun with you, Cheeseslave!

And yes, the good news is that there ARE restaurants serving REAL FOOD! ;)

I can finally put down my spatula every now and again. Phew!

Kate February 3, 2010 at 11:36 AM

I don’t see My. Linky! Oh well. We’re grain-free, so I had to come up with something to eat. This works well as a pasta sauce if you’re not grain free.

I also have a guest post on making over chili today at Kitchen Stewardship’s blog! :)


Wardeh @ GNOWFGLINS February 3, 2010 at 12:03 PM

I don’t see the Mr. Linky? I disabled the AdBlocker for your blog, but still can’t see it. I’ll check back – but in the meantime, here’s what I’m sharing in Real Food Wednesday.

This has to do with real food organization – my recipe binders needed some desperate attention. Since I set the first one up in 2001, I’ve accumulated some definitely not-so-traditional-and-real food recipes, which I’m a bit chagrined to admit. Everything’s fresh and pure now. :) All are welcome to share how you organize your real food recipes.

Avivah @ Oceans of Joy February 3, 2010 at 12:04 PM

(Am I missing the obvious, or is anyone else also not seeing the Mr. Linky?)

Today I shared about an powerful real food ingredient I’ve been adding to our broth this winter to boost our immunity – inexpensive, easy, but so powerful!

Hi Ann Marie – I couldn’t find Mr. Linky either, but here’s the post I’m contributing to RFW – Water, Our Lifeline to Health and one easy idea to add minerals to your diet naturally – unsweetened cranberry juice in water – full of minerals! I will come back later and see if it has been fixed. Thanks for Real Food Wednesdays!

What happened to Mr. Linky? I don’t see the form OR any of the posts…?


chanelle February 3, 2010 at 12:54 PM

My post this week is a delicious soaked wheat bread recipe. Enjoy!


cheeseslave February 3, 2010 at 1:15 PM

Looks like it’s working now


Elizabeth @ The Nourished Life February 3, 2010 at 1:23 PM

This week I’m taking a look at how coconut oil aids weight loss. It’s a natural metabolism booster and so much more! Gosh, I wish I’d been around a few years around to invest in coconut oil shares. ;)


Real Food Mama February 3, 2010 at 1:35 PM

This week I have been working on acclimating my new kefir grains to my raw goats milk. I am really looking forward to having a regular supply of this healthy and tasty treat!

Psychic Lunch February 3, 2010 at 2:45 PM

I’d like to share a reminder about restaurants. Having stumbled into visiting a local restaurant supply depot and been disgusted by the offerings, I took a bunch of photos and put up some details about it! I’d go so far as to say nearly all restaurants out there use some kind of supply chain like this, whether delivered on a huge truck or picked up in person.

Jenna from February 3, 2010 at 2:56 PM

Since we make a lot of homemade yogurt and strained yogurt cheese, we have a ton of whey. I’ve got about 4 huge mason jars full of it right now in the fridge and I end up throwing a lot of it away. So, I’m getting serious about using it more. We’ve been using it to soak whole grains, lacto-ferment veggies and we even tried adding some the the dog’s food (he didn’t mind).

yummy, that sounds simple and good!

Sage February 3, 2010 at 3:51 PM

So many of my dishes this New Year have been the same colors…which is what eating locally in winter will get you. I talk about the idea of getting variety all year and whether or not eating locally really means you get what your body needs at that particular time of year.

This week’s post is about having our pantries stocked and loaded! I’m amazed at how little food some of my friends have in their house sometimes!

Hi, I’m new to posting on Real Food Wednesday, though not new to reading the posts. Today I’m posting on what it means to be a food citizen & a recipe for black-eyed pea & kale soup with lemon & sage. Hope you enjoy!

Guess I’m a little too late to use Mr. Linky.


newRDcook February 6, 2010 at 5:45 PM

This is a great idea! I posted a recipe for Rainbow Chard and Leek Saute, topped with a hard boiled egg. I try to incorporate as many local, seasonal foods (i.e. “Real Food”) in my diet throughout the week – using foods from a CSA share and local Farmer’s Market. Take a peak at the recipe:
