Ah, it’s that time again. Time for some Real Food L-O-V-E.
I'll be honest. I want your email address. I promise not to do anything weird with it! I'll even send you a copy of my e-book

So true about eating corn. I discovered that when several of us turned up allergic to corn and I started reading labels.
What’s really odd, though, is that when we haven’t had anything containing corn parts in a couple days, we can eat real corn without a reaction. The whole corn, on the cob, doesn’t start an allergic reaction for any of my allergic family, but a single serving of “pancake syrup” sets them off for days.

Thanks for the link! That’s interesting and a bit disturbing about the orange juice. I don’t care for it, personally. It’s too strong and funny-flavored. Just give me an orange!
Thanks for linking back to your December post about Joel Salatin. I’m a new reader through WhatDoesABodyGood?. I finished Omnivore’s Dilemma recently and fell in love with it and the knowlegde it provided. I’m working to eliminate fake foods and I’ve come a long way. I’m a Nutritionist and I actually used to work in USDA Coop Ext. 🙂 I never agreed with everything then and I’m glad I had the opportunity to move on because I don’t agree with everything now. I still have a lot to learn about preparing natural foods and I am still learning so much thanks to blogs like yours.
Local Nourishment — Now that’s truly interesting. Sounds like you’re allergic to processed or refined corns. As with most allergies, there is a tolerance threshold. So, if enough of the allergen builds up in your system, you’ll react. Also, your “whole corn” my be GMO-free (assuming you buy organic)? If that’s the case, you’re probably allergic to the GMO corn and not authentic, real corn.
Kimberley — Thanks for sharing the link about soy with us!
Jenny — I’m with you. I *used* to like orange juice. But because it’s not a whole food, we stopped drinking it. Now that we don’t drink juice anymore, it’s amazing how weird it tastes!
Lori — Good for you! I’m a holistic nutrition & wellness coach working on getting my certification right now. Glad you like the blog. I hope you stick around, cause I’m working hard to make it even better.
I love the link to making yogurt in a crockpot, it looks so simple!
After looking it over though, it would be nice if I could make yogurt without heating the milk up so much. Does that work?
I stopped buying juice when we went low-carb. Too many carbs in a super small serving. It’s better to split w real orange w/my kids. In fact, I just sliced the last orange from our own tree for the year. I guess we had about 30lbs of oranges from one tree.
I’m wanting to know what did the Fl Citrus growers do to land owners who had personal citrus trees? Some one alluded to that in the comments of the article. Guess I’ll google it!

I know it’s a little late but I linked to you today because of the LaCense give away.
I’m a regular customer of theirs and the quality is just unbelievable. Pricey…but well worth it.
Great blog you have here!! I caught the link from Richard N.
Have a great day!!

Hi Marc —
Thanks for the link! I tried to email you about the giveaway, but I couldn’t find your email address on your blog. You should put it out there or make it more visible for those of us who want to contact you about stuff like this!
p.s. it looks like all the links in that post of yours are broken. They all have blogger.com in the web address.
Marc Feel Good Eating says
Thank you for pointing that out. Wonderful blogger software. I tried to fix, but it won’t take it. So I just put your site on the bottom of the post with comment mentioning broken links.
I’m working on a new site, so I can finally bid blogger farewell.
This is my busy time of year, so it’s not going as fast as I would like. But I will have it ready over the course of the next 3 weeks or so. I’ll keep you posted. That will also have a visible email adress. Thank you for that advice.
Have a great weekend.
