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
Butternut Squash: I bought a butternut squash for the first time in my life a couple months ago, and I remember bringing it home and thinking, “Um…okay, what now?” I sure would have liked to have this post from Traditional Foods back then to reference — I would have learned how to properly choose, prepare, cook, and even freeze and store these things easily! Oh, they also have a recipe for butternut squash custard that looks really good.
A Visit to Sally Fallon Morell’s Farm: OH how jealous I was when I pored over all the gorgeous pictures and read the charming account of Jill from Farm Food Blog‘s visit to none other than the Sally Fallon’s farmstead. The animals, the quaint countryside, the food… what an idyllic fantasy land of real food come true! You gotta see this. And if you live anywhere near Maryland, you should pay Sally a visit, too! Her farm is open for business and sells delicious, fresh food.
GAPS Intro Stage 1 — It’s So Easy! Is it really? I sure hope so! Cause we plan on taking the plunge here very soon at the BB house. I loved seeing this breakdown of intro from experienced GAPSter, Joy of The Liberated Kitchen. From Portland, OR — where I’m traveling to tomorrow! How cool.
Teachers of the Week!
Is Your Baby’s Blue Vein a Sugar Bug? by Holistic Kid. Did you know that a visible bule vein across the bridge of a baby’s nose could be an indicator that the child may be more prone to hyperactivity and be overreactive to sugar? Traditional Japanese medicine teaches that children with this syndrome may need special care. Really fascinating stuff!
Mulled Apple Cider by Food Farm Health: Oh this post just called to me. I’m returning to the land of apples this week from where I grew up — the Pacific Northwest. There had better be some rich and warm, spicy cider there waiting for me. I’ll bring along this recipe just in case.
Pumpkin Snickerdoodles by Whole New Mom. What could be better!? One of my favorite flavors and favorite cookies, all rolled into one. This recipe includes options for dairy, egg, gluten, and sugar-free dietary restrictions.
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!
