My real food blogger friends have some crazy, amazing deals for you on their virtual products. So many in fact that they’re going to claim a whole post here today. The great thing about the sales you’re about to see is that they’re online. No crowds or traffic. Need I say more? (However, some sales may have virtual lines — they’re good for a certain number of sales only, so act now if you’re interested.)
I was thumbing through Real Food: What to Eat and Why and came across one of my favorite passages, on the topic of breast milk. It is actually a bittersweet passage for me –I’ll tell you why after I share the quote.
We just wrapped up a wonderful visit with my parents. They came with their usual generosity, love, and exuberance. We had a list a mile long of things to do, and didn’t get to do nearly enough! Isn’t that how it always goes, though?
Today is the main dishes course of the real food progressive dinner, also including breakfast casseroles! For my contribution, I’m sharing this collection of our favorite main dishes. And remember, there are lots more ideas over at Stephanie’s (our hostess) today.
For today’s Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), I’m quoting from the introduction of a brand-new book by Joel Salatin — The Sheer Ecstasy of being a Lunatic Farmer. This book is likely to inspire the renegade in you!
We read this chapter on sweeteners together with my parents (who are visiting us). We came away with reinforced convictions to keep up our vigil against excess sweets. What about you? If you’re not caught up in this study, no worries. This is about what works for you, and we’ll be here when you’re ready.
When I was a newborn, my grandmother and namesake, Tata Wardee, came to live with us. She taught my mom how to cook everything Arabic. Today, in my little family, we love to eat heritage dishes year round, but especially on holidays. And these Middle Eastern pizzas make the cut more often than not.
Once upon a time I started a series here at GNOWFGLINS. I called it Real Food Quote Monday (RFQM), and I shared each Monday a quote from something I read. I kept up the series for quite some time. Sometimes though, the quotes stretched me. So I abandoned the series while I sorted out how to approach it in the future. I’m back with RFQM today, with a new approach, and a helpful natural remedy for keratosis pilaris — the sandpaper like rashes on the backs of many arms, including my own.
