Real Food Link Love

Once again I’m sharing a smattering of Real Food links with you from around the web — links I found tasty, thought-provoking, or ultra-informative.

Before I get to this week’s link love, I hope you’ll all remember to join in tomorrow’s Fight Back Friday‘s carnival of real food lovin’ renegade links. Last week 21 people participated from all walks of the Real Food Revolution: Traditional Foodies, Slow Foodies, Paleo Dieters, and more! I want us to beat that. So, if you were thinking of participating but couldn’t, now’s your chance. Let’s change the way America (and the industrialized world) eats!

Now for those links. I hope you’ll find them just as enlightening, just as yummy as I did.

First, I have to tell you that these Banana Nut Bars from Son of Grok were just about the BEST thing I put in my mouth last week. Grain-free. Sugar-free. Ultra nutrient dense.

And while we’re on the subject of recipes, Cake & Commerce shared a fantastic-looking gluten-free, corn-free, potato-free recipe for homemade pasta last week.

Civil Eats’ Paula Crossfield wrote about Obama’s new Food Safety Working Group, asking if it would address the deeper issues facing our food system.

Do you know about Antoine Bechamp? Louis Pasteur’s scientific rival? Bechamp believed that Pasteur’s germ theory (around which almost all modern medicine in the West is based) was flawed. He argued that the inner condition and health of the cells (also called “terrain” during the scientific literature of their day) determined whether disease would manifest and spread in the body. In his deathbed journals, Pasteur conceded this point! Well, a reader shared this fantastic Squidoo lens about Bechamp’s life & work with me this week. It’s absolutely fascinating and well worth the read.

And finally, Kimi at The Nourishing Gourmet writes about how to get all the nutrients we can out of corn by using traditional preparation methods.

I am a passionate advocate for REAL FOOD -- food that's sustainable, organic, local, and traditionally-prepared according to the wisdom of our ancestors. I'm also an author and a nutrition educator. I enjoy playing in the rain, a good bottle of Caol Ila scotch, curling up with a page-turning book, sunbathing on my hammock, and watching my three children explore their world.

    I had always heard that Pastuer conceded his pasteurization process flawed on his deathbed – thanks, as always, for the great reads. See you on FBF!

    Thanks for including me in your linky love again! Each week, your links always inspire me to start doing a linky post on my site. I think I am going to start a Saturday link post each week. Then I can give some linky love myself! I love the banana nut bar link, by the way. Sounds delish!

    Annie — I had heard that, too. But this Squidoo lens on Bechamp goes into really amazing detail that I’d never encountered before. I knew about Bechamp claiming health and sickness has more to do with “terrain” than invading germs, but I *never* knew about the phenomenon he discovered called “pleomorphism.” That totally blew me away. Well worth reading that page to get an even deeper understanding of where our health & wellness comes from.

    Kimi — You won’t be disappointed in those bars. They’re not “sweet” by dessert standards (which I really like about these), so they do make an appealing and healthy snack to tote around for yourself and the kiddos.

    SoG — I hope you get around to writing it!

This link is great and have added it to my favorites! Thanks so much for all the great info! I thank God that I found all of you!
