Empanadas

In the Sourdough eCourse, my friend Christina taught us a sourdough variation of the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day. She calls it the “bucket method.” She really does make it in a bucket, and it is super easy. Not to mention versatile. Tara, from the Keep It Real blog, used the “bucket dough” to make these beautiful empanadas. She’s even got an informative little video to show how she rolls them up. I can totally relate to her reverse cooking/planning method, as that is how I work, too. Enjoy! –Wardee

RFNH: Chapter 1 Discussion

sprouted-flour

Welcome to the first discussion for Real Food Health and Nutrition, the first real food nutrition text for school-age children. My kids and I really enjoyed reading chapter 1, and then discussing it. This chapter makes a distinction between nutritionism and whole foods. Where nutritionism believes that the scientifically identified nutrients in food (such as beta-carotene) give foods their nutritional value, we lovers of whole foods know and appreciate that nutrients don’t work in isolation — God created foods with a whole host of nutrients and component which work better together to offer nutrition and sustenance. Please visit this post with your children and share your thoughts and impressions about chapter 1 with the rest of us!

5-Spice Apple Chutney

Kicked up with the Chinese 5-Spice Blend, lacto-fermented apple chutney has been rocking our house lately. I can’t keep enough of it on hand for the kids. They love to put a scoop of it in a bowl of kefir. We just went through 1/2 gallon of it in 3 days — and that was with me telling them not to take so much! If you’ve not heard of Chinese 5-Spice, you’ll want to listen up, and then get or make some.

Can’t waste good, backyard eggs, and they’re a healthy, not to mention inexpensive, food. When you have lots of eggs, how do you keep from getting bored? Why, eat them lots of different ways. Let me show you how we’ve been getting eggs into everything…
