    Hi Sarah,
    When you put the link up I am going to share my pecan crusted grouper and an article about grains and gluten and what Michael had to say about them. I am also sharing information about my 28 day grain-free challenge that is still open!

    Every day, many of us put a lot of junk on our skin! Read why what you put on your body might be just as important as what you put in it! You might also get a kick out of my self experimentation…

    I’ve been on a roll lately posting on the early puberty onset trend. Today I linked up a post discussing other foods that contain estrogen, besides soy. It’s not all bad. Moderation and balance are key…like most things.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share!

    I just found your blog. (don’t know how I have missed it) I am very excited to read through past posts. Thank you for hosting. I love Real Food blog hops and always seek them out. Today I posted about how I am trying to get more Real Foods being on hospital bed rest. It is not easy, but every little bit counts.

    Thanks for hosting! I shared a Master Tonic recipe, the CURE ALL. It’s a wonderful preventative and boosts your immune system. This is a great one to have on hand, especially as the cold/flu season sets in and before Halloween when so many people start consuming tons of processed foods and refined sugars. Thanks again :)

    A question about allergy testing and peanut butter. Is conventional allergy testing of any use? My son has broken out in hives 2x that lasted five and half weeks. Benedryl kept it under control with one dose every 24 hours. Doctor wants to do allergy testing but I question whether they will be able to pinpoint the cause.

    Peanut butter question…Can the phytic acid be neutralized on roasted peanuts or is it too late?

    Thank you,

    Link #50 is not real food. :( White flour and white sugar are primary ingredients.

      Agreed. I wonder if you could use sprouted flour instead of white and Rapadura/Sucanat instead of white sugar…. even reduce the sugar a bit might work. She did use a cast iron skillet!!

    I just posted a link for grass-fed ghee on the Middle Eastern food site midEATS: Coming from an Egyptian background, I explain the health benefits of organic, grass-fed ghee, dismantle the persisting myth that saturated fat from a quality source is harmful to health, and describe the history of ghee in Egypt and how it’s currently used in Middle Eastern cuisine.

    Hi Sarah!

    I linked up a Real Food Butterscotch Brownie recipe. It calls for spouted flour, pastured butter and eggs, sucanat sugar and other Real Food ingredients. They were a total hit with my family. Rich, buttery, not too sweet.

    Thanks for hosting!

      That’s sprouted flour, not spouted flour. Geesh.

    It’s certainly not fun living on liquids for over two months due to a recent diagnosis of Crohn’s from airborne mold in our home. But I am happy to know that I’m eating healing foods. Sharing my latest recipe for Chicken Vegetable Soup.

    I’ve done chicken livers, just made chicken liver mousse today, and calves liver and have now seen goat and lamb liver at my local farmer’s market. Any recipes for those? Any pate recipes for liver other than chicken and pork?

    Hello, I’ve been a Weston Price member for about 5 years now and I’m so grateful to everyone who has taught me so much about what real health is – I so wish I could hear you speak in Dallas! As a grandmother to 15, I’ve been on a mission to educate young mothers about the shameful myths of the “diet dictocrats.” My post isn’t about food, but on the drugging of children because so many people don’t understand that diet and mental health go hand in hand. Thanks for all you do to keep people healthy!
