Sunday School: Real Food Link Love + Blog Carnival #4

"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

Health Benefits of Chia Seeds: Did you know that chia seeds are the richest plant source of omega-3 fatty acids? They also contain 27 different nutrients and amino acids! Learn more about this superfood and where to find it at Nourishing Treasures!

Healthy Homemade Peanut Butter Cups: Oh, how I missed my favorite Reeses candies over Halloween this year! Well, now I don’t have to miss out on such a tasty treat anymore. Check out this amazing recipe for a Real-Food-ified version at Delicious Obsessions!

Yellow Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting: Okay you guys. It’s official. I’m pretty sure I can handle going on the GAPS diet — I mean, just look at these grain-free, GAPS-legal, ridiculously delicious-looking cupcakes from Nourished and Nurtured! If you can have cupcakes, all is well with the world. Don’t you think?!


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)!


What Happens in the Stomach of Corn-Fed Cows by Laurel of Leaves: Poor CAFO cows! You’ll be so saddened to read about what happens to cows fed an unnatural and unhealthy diet of corn in this post. Lori has been traveling in New Zealand, where unlike in the US, there are no CAFOs — only healthy, grass-fed cattle. Just imagine how much healthier our country would be if we followed suit!

How I Replace Refined Sugar in Our House by Jo’s Health Corner: Sure, you might already know you could swap out white sugar with honey and maple syrup, but have you ever thought to use ground-up raisins, crushed pineapple, or dried fruit? There are so many unique tips in this post for eliminating refined sugar in your kitchen, while still allowing your family some sweets!

Cranberry Pumpkin Seed Granola (grain-free, nut-free!) by Food Farm Health: What a perfect snack for those on GAPS or who might have grain or nut allergies! With pumpkin and sunflower seeds, cranberries, coconut, raisins, honey, cinnamon, and plenty of healthy coconut oil, who needs oat clusters? Yum!


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.

    Today, I shared my recent post about the World’s 7 Most Powerful Foodies. These are people who are at the forefront of the food politics movement and their voices are going to be the ones that change the system — with the help of the little people like you and me of course! 😉

  11. Hi Emily,
    Thanks for featuring my post! Your blog is one of my favorite blogs.

    Today I’m sharing tips on how people can eat certain foods and herbs or use essential oils to stay warm this winter. As a Swede I’m familiar with cold winters and even the winters in California and Texas can be cold.

    Wow, thanks so much for featuring me this week! I’ve posted a raspberry mousse (Dairy-free) recipe as well as a couple of articles on allergies! Thanks for hosting! –S

  13. Sweet! Thanks for featuring my post! :) Now that I’m back in the good ole U. S. of A. I notice such a huge difference in the way meat tastes even. That’s why I recommend using local, grass-fed beef (or lamb!) in the recipe I shared this week: Beef & Broccoli Curry.

  14. Wow, you are so brave! The BAPS diet strikes fear into my soul! Probably for no reason at all, but it does all the same. I have stopped in to link to my post on homemade coconut curry chicken. Thanks for hosting!

  15. That was supposed to be GAPS! Serves me right for nursing and typing all at once! LOL!
