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
Freezer Cooking: Homemade Hash Browns and French Fries: Are you still buying packaged potato products from the freezer aisle? No need for that! See how easy and frugal it is to make and freeze your own convenient tasty taters from Nourishing the Heart!
Wild Fish and a Healthy Omega 3 to Omega 6 Ratio: A great quick look at what the nutritional differences are between farmed and wild-caught fish from Traditional Foods. But there’s more to our fish buying choices than just this important balance of key omega fatty acids. Is wild fish always better? Amanda also shares an interesting link to a very informative site on the issue.
3-Minute Ice Cream: Hard to believe, I know, but KerryAnn from Cooking Traditional Foods is so not kidding with this one! You really can make delicious banana peanut butter and/or chocolate ice cream in just minutes, without an ice cream machine! Magical.
Teachers of the Week!
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!
Easy Overnight Fruit Leather by Becky’s Stockpot: Oh my goodness! Fruit leather is probably one of my all-time favorite packaged (processed) foods. Who knew a healthy homemade version could be this simple? And, bonus — no dehydrator required!
Top 5 Frugal Tips by Stacy Makes Cents: Check it out, you guys — one of our blogging friends is basically a celebrity!! See this clip of Stacy on TV, sharing some of her best tips! Awesome.
Is cooking real food too difficult? by Ruth’s Real Food. I love, love LOVE the way that Ruth addresses this most common complaint of people hesitant to begin a real food lifestyle. “Truth is, it does take more time and effort to drop 2 eggs in a pan with butter and fry them up than to put a box of cereal on the table. Not much more, but more.” Ha!
Show & Tell — It’s Blog Hop Time!
- Please only link to posts covering Real Food/ healthy lifestyle-related topics. In my eyes, this includesnourishing 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!
