A Week of Real Food News

This week’s roundup is a bit on the lighter side. Sure, I’ve got two interesting news stories, but the real gems are some kid pleasing snack ideas and recipes to use up your summer abundance.

Hope you enjoy!

First up, Wendell Berry teams up with two others to go to Washington. Their mission? To propose and argue for a 50 year farm bill that would help set our government agricultural policy back on a more sustainable track. The Washington Post interviewed the men, who had some pretty insightful things to say.

Next up, Amanda Rose from Rebuild From Depression posted a great summary on the Ethicurean site about the recent Raw Milk Symposium in Seattle. Amanda was one of two raw milk advocates invited to speak, and her report is informative and well-balanced (as are the post comments!).

Next up, Jenny from Nourished Kitchen shared Ten Healthy Treats for Kids. Utterly fantastic ideas.

Got lots of zucchini beating down your door? Here’s a simple breakfast casserole to help use them up.

What about okra? Ed at the Slow Cook shares a simple and delightful looking recipe for old-fashioned smothered okra.

    Thank you so much for the link through! I LOVE that zucchini casserole recipe. We were loaded with zucchini this week after the farmers market (our vendors pay their market fees with food instead of cash), so that recipe is much needed.
