Welcome to Sunday School!
I’m so excited for this! As I announced last week, we will be hosting our very first blog carnival today, in addition to sharing links from our favorite recent blog posts (similarly to What I’ve Learned Wednesday)!
Sunday School is a time to teach, learn, share, and reflect on all that is Real Food blogland. I’ll start by posting my usual blurbs and links to my latest favorite blog posts, followed by featured submissions to the carnival, then opening it up for links!
Lesson Notes: Links from Real Food Bloggers
Six Ways to Eat Healthy on a Budget: Lots of families these days are turning to couponing for cutting down their grocery bills and living more frugally. But what do you do when you live a lifestyle that has no use for $0.05 boxes of cereal or free fudgsicles? Adrienne of Whole New Mom shows us easy ways to make the most of a real food budget — without clipping a single coupon!
Animal and Microbial Rennets 101: I’ll be honest. The only thing I knew about rennet before reading this post by Clabbermouth was that it was used to make cheese. I had absolutely no idea that it can come from the stomach of a calf — and I definitely didn’t know that most commercial cheese makers use a microbial type of rennet made from genetically engineered bacteria, fungi, and yeasts. Geez! Guess I’ll be buying cheese organic from now on.
Dehydrating Apples for Apple Chips: I’ve been putting off attempting dehydrating foods simply because I don’t yet have a dehydrating machine. But you know what I do have lots of? Sun! In this post (complete with a fun video tutorial), Jeanie Rose of Traditional Foods teaches how to make your own dehydrated apple chips, and she isn’t afraid to use a driveway, porch, or rooftop to get the job done!
Teachers of the Week!
Coming next week to Sunday School, I’ll be plugging my top picks from this week’s blog carnival submissions, so be sure to submit your posts 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!
Show & Tell — It’s Blog Hop Time!
- Please only link to posts covering Real Food/ 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!
