Hey everyone, welcome back to Sunday School! This is our weekly time for bloggers to come to link up their posts and teach us about real food and healthy living. I learn something new every week!
Teachers of the Week
Here are our featured posts from last week‘s Sunday School! Bloggers, be sure to submit your posts to the carnival for a chance to be featured here! I will also “like” your blog on Facebook and tag you when I link to Sunday School from the B.B. page, and I’ll submit your post to StumbleUpon (a great way to get more traffic to your site)!
From Sap to Syrup, by Moss Grown Stone. Okay, this is so awesome!! I saw a post last week from Moss Grown Stone, with these sweet pictures of a family “tree-tapping.” I was confused. The stuff they tapped into the jugs looked like water, so I figured those must not be maple trees, otherwise it would be brown maple syrup coming out! Well, little did I know that maple syrup does not in fact come straight from the tree (someone please tell me I’m not the only one who thought that, haha) — it takes 40 GALLONS of watery maple sap boiled down to make just ONE gallon of maple syrup! Wow. Now I see why it costs 20 bucks for a little jug of it! Learn how it’s done in this very cool, very informative post!
Whipped Coconut Oil, How Do I Love Thee, by Stitching Hearts Together. Chara counted all the ways she loves her coconut oil — and there’s over 40! Learn all about why you should love coconut oil too, and how to turn it into a fluffy, creamy whipped version that’s easily spreadable, even when stored in the refrigerator!
Aluminum Foil Dryer Balls — Do They Work? by Green Idea Reviews. Dryer sheets are filled with all sorts of awful chemicals, which are then slathered all over your clothes. Gross! But have you ever heard of using balls of aluminum foil as an alternative? Sure would be a nice way to recycle relatively clean foil from the kitchen! See how they worked to reduce static cling for Victoria in this review.
Show & Tell — It’s Blog Hop Time!
- Please only link to posts covering real rood or healthy lifestyle-related topics. In my eyes, this includes nourishing recipes, articles about (real!) nutrition, tutorials, discussions of food politics, homesteading, tips and tricks for keeping a green, healthy home, and other healthy, holistic living topics! If you’re a B.B. subscriber, you know that I myself don’t only blog about food — sometimes I write about pretty random things — but it all relates to simple, healthy living that goes against the grains of conventional wisdom.
- If you do post a recipe, please don’t include any fake or weird, chemically ingredients! No vegetable oils, processed sugar, white flours (well, maybe here and there is okay, even Sally uses all-purpose flour for pie crust sometimes), hydrolyzed soy protein, powdered eggs/whey/protein/ANYTHING, low-fat fakeness, or other non-real “food” product ingredients! If you’re unsure what Real Food is all about, just poke around this site and the ones listed on my blogroll, and you’ll start to see. Or just raise your hand and someone will call on you! (email or comment.)
- Please update your post with a link back to this Sunday School post, so your readers can get in on all the learnin’ going on here! A simple, “This post is linked to Sunday School at Butter Believer!” is perfect. Just blog carnival courtesy, is all!
- I can’t imagine having to do so, but if our rules aren’t followed by certain links, I guess I’ll have to delete them. I’m sure everyone is more than capable of playing nice, though!
