Sunday School: Real Food Link Love + Blog Carnival #11

"Welcome aboard! We're all off to Sunday School!" ;)


Hey everyone! Welcome back to Sunday School! This is our weekly 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

  • GAPS Recipe: Chili with Navy Beans and Beef Heart: Well, Jennutrition, it just so happens that in gathering my foodstuffs for my upcoming GAPS journey, I have procured several bags of navy beans and 5 pounds of beef heart that I didn’t quite know what to do with. Now I’ll be making this! Mmm.
  • Carrot Ginger Kvass: Have you tried beet kvass yet in your real food journey? Me neither. Carrots and ginger sound much less scary! Check out this awesome alternative probiotic drink from Pickle Me Too!
  • New to Food Preserving — Start Here: Check out this rundown of all the traditional ways to preserve your food in a healthy way, from Common Sense Homesteading. There are quite a few on this list that I definitely am “new” to, so this was a very helpful post for me!

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)!
Yellow Coconut Cake with Cocoa Buttercream Frosting by Our Nourishing Roots: I cannot wait to make this. I knew right when I saw it that this has to be my celebration treat for when I complete the Intro phase of the GAPS diet. This ridiculously amazing looking cake is entirely GAPS-legal! I’m so excited.
Baked Oatmeal (or Oatmeal Cake) by Whole New Mom. Oh how I will miss my oatmeal when I’m on GAPS! I think I’ll have to make me some of this delicious fruit-topped oat cake before my time with grains is up. Don’t you worry, oats, I’m coming back for you as soon as my gut is fixed.
Coconut Water Kefir (Video) by Real Food Forager. I know kefir, and I know coconut water, but I don’t yet know coconut water kefir! Thanks to this easy-to-follow video post, I think I’ll have to give this awesome probiotic drink a try.

Show & Tell — It’s Blog Hop Time!

Classroom Rules:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.) ;-)
  3. 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!
  4. 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!
Amen? Amen! Let’s get started.
** {By the way} I’ve been making an effort to promote all the participants of Sunday School, by Facebooking and tweeting as many of your links as I can throughout the week. Keep ’em coming, and I’ll do my best to brink more visitors to your links! **

    Here’s my recipe for quinoa veggie breakfast casserole, a great way to get some veggies and protein for breakfast!

  9. Hi! I shared a post with a video on how to make mango chutney (and posted the incorrect link first time – sorry about that). I also shared a post on a little trick that gives a great taste to vegetable soup and a video on the effects of genetics vs. lifestyle.
    Thanks for hosting!

  11. Hey there and Happy Sunday!
    I’m in the midst of a gluten challenge (will this ever end?) and have hit the guilt, big time. I’ve actually made my kid sick, despite best intentions and care. This post has tips on keeping the family safe when some are gluten eaters and some are not, but mostly it reaffirms what we already knew… a 100% gluten-free home is the safest way to go!

    PS – comment luv grabbed our GAPS legal beef stew – perfect for a cold day!

  12. Today is the day! Day One of the GAPS Challenge! Please head over and see if you are ready to commit to one of the three levels that I have planned for the GAPS Challenge: 1. grain- or gluten-free, 2. Full GAPS, and 3. GAPS Intro Diet. It’s only for 30 days, you can do it!

    Hey Emily! I wasn’t sure if you allowed giveaways, so I won’t be offended if you pull my link down — but we posted a coconut flour giveaway, and e-book review for Simply Clean (Frugally Sustainable), and a go to recipe for a quick and easy (crap free) jarred vodka sauce recipe. Have a super duper day!

  14. Jen says:

    I added another that just went up today — a guest post by Ruth @Ruth’s Real Food – Is Your Incurable Disease Curable?

  15. Laurie says:

    Thanks so much for featuring my post on getting started with food preservation. The FDA is predicting that food prices will rise yet again in 2012, so home food preservation is a great way to stretch your real food budget.

    In case your readers are interested, the first post in the getting started series was “Become More Self-Reliant – Start Here” –, which gives a broader overview of how I define homesteading, and shares some great tips from our Common Sense Homesteading facebook fans.

    Thanks again!

    Hi Emily! Thanks so much for hosting us! I first linked to my top 10 from 2011, which is what I call How To Make 2012 Your Healthiest Year Yet! I messed up on the title to that one (oops!), so I linked to How To Make Homemade Butter, and Low Fat/Fat Free Foods MAKE YOU FAT! :) Have a great Sunday!

  26. Hi Emily – I’m late for class, but thanks for hosting! I am sharing my post: Earthing – Are You Connected?

    I’m fascinated by this simple yet powerful concept that our planet’s energy is essential to our health and vitality, yet we humans have manage to become completely disconnected. When was the last time your bare feet touched the Earth?
