Real Food Wednesdays

Better late than never, right? Today has been one of those days so it took me a while to get this up.

Welcome to Real Food Wednesday!

I posted some inspiration for you: 100 Ways To Eat More Fat. In my opinion, most of us don’t eat anywhere near enough fat. What with all the low fat salad dressing we’re eating and skim milk we’re drinking. Julia Child said that “Fat is where the flavor is.” Fat is also where the vitamins are.

Check out Kelly the Kitchen Kop’s AWESOME looking recipe for stuffed shells made with homemade yogurt cheese: Italian Stuffed Shells Recipe. Doesn’t that look delicious?

And don’t forget — Kelly is hosting Real Food Wednesday next week!

Books, movies, TV, the Internet.. its easy to be overwhelmed by the ton of health and diet information that’s out there, some of it good, some not so much. How do you tell the difference?

What it really all comes down to is that we must stop eating those mass-produced things that contribute to diabetes, heart disease, cancer and obesity and get back to eating fresh, whole, minimally processed foods. You know, the stuff that our great grandparents ate and would still recognize today.

Throw away the processed sugar and flour, the pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, preservatives and synthetic vitamins and eat the way nature intended. Eat as if your life depends on it.

Here’s a simple, healthy and nutritious summer lunch of hard-cooked pastured eggs, homemade mayonnaise & mustard and just-gathered tomatoes, herbs and wild greens. Totally delicious. I’m heading back to work feeling good today..

Thank you for hosting, AnnMarie!

Sometimes life just comes at you and the only thing to do is just take the next step. Happens here all of the time! I made fig bars from raw almonds and dried apricots, then cooked the figs down with unsweetened apple juice to make a jam. These little darlings are so good. Lots of good fat in these, Ann Marie. :) Thanks for hosting!

My gynecologist called…good news! (no I’m not pregnant!)
My bone density is slightly improved from the last one, but that was done in 2004! He asked if I was taking anything to improve it, meaning meds, I said no, BUT I have been drinking raw milk, taking cod liver oil and using coconut oil. He said, are you kidding? I said no, but I’m thrilled with the results!



LeahS July 20, 2011 at 9:36 AM

that’s great! I wonder what he meant by “are you kidding” — like was he shocked you weren’t dead from drinking raw milk?


Michelle @ Find Your Balance July 15, 2009 at 11:36 AM

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about 3 books I can’t get enough of.

Thanks for hosting Ann Marie!

I’m wondering what’s up with Mr. Linky. I don’t like that I have to go to another site to see all the links. Is this just me? Or is Mr. Linky different?


Paula July 15, 2009 at 12:38 PM

I am certain all of you will be drooling when you see all the sausages we are making this week.
We have been gorging on samples all along the way, and without a doubt, we have never eaten a commercial sausage that tasted as good as all the recipes we have made.

Hey guys! I just subscribed to Cheeseslave’s feed the other week, so I hadn’t heard about Real Food Wednesdays before. Currently I’m doing a Market Week challenge, where I buy all of my food from a farmer’s market for the whole week. I think the post today (Herb-Scrambled Eggs) fits in well with the “100 ways to eat more fat” theme! I look forward to participating in more Real Food Wednesdays.

Nancy – That’s GREAT NEWS!!!!


Pam July 15, 2009 at 1:11 PM

After reading the list of 100 ways to get more fat, I got up, went to the kitchen and made myself a snack. It was a bowl of sliced, local peaches, lots of raw cream and some coconut sprinkles, recipe from “Eat Fat Lose Fat” by Mary Enig and Sally Fallon. WOW! I want another bowl but I’m FULL! Guess there’s always dessert…


Small Footprint Mama July 15, 2009 at 1:12 PM

We have so many figs on our tree right now, so I posted two fig recipes for a hot summer meal. Thanks for hosting!!

When I was rushing to get Mr. Linky up this morning, it wouldn’t let me use the normal linky thing. I emailed them to find out why. Turns out they hadn’t moved my account over to a new server or something.

So we are using this image linky for now. Yeah, I don’t like it either. I didn’t want to delay RFW any longer while I waited to hear back from Mr. Linky (although I must say, they were very speedy in getting back to me!).

Anyway when I host again week after next, we’ll go back to normal.


Catherine July 15, 2009 at 1:24 PM

I made a video on how easy it is to make coconut bread.

Nancy – That is great news to hear about your bone density!

Thanks for hosting Ann Marie. This weeks post is an interview with Joel Salatin.


Kristy July 15, 2009 at 5:54 PM

Hi! This is my first time joining your Real Food Wednesday. I have been involved in WAPF since 2004 when we made the lifestyle change. It is nice to see so many of you. I just learned of your RFW about a month ago.

See you next week!


Andrea July 15, 2009 at 7:17 PM

Hi Ann Marie,

I agree w/ you that we don’t eat as much fat as we should. Thanks for the inspiration.

My post is food for thought for those who are just getting familiar to the traditional nutrition ideas


Pamela July 15, 2009 at 7:32 PM

Am a bit late posting a comment. Though I did take part in Real Food Wednesday earlier today. It’s been 14 month’s since I began the weekly brewing of Kombucha. The amount I am making per week continues to grow.
Thanks for hosting Ann Marie!

I love the shared recipes and ideas so much!
I found Kelly the Kitchen Kop when I was googling information on raw milk. It was love at first site :)
I added my thoughts on food as well as a recipe for Paneer which actually goes well with the adding more fats to your diet posted up by you!
Thanks for the ability to share these postings with more people!
