It’s that time again, Food Renegades – time for Fight Back Fridays! Head on over to Food Renegade’s post today to catch up on the latest, greatest real food recipes and posts from around the web:
And happy stinking Friday!
I think it’s weird.
It’s weird how January became February, like, really fast.
Regardless of the speed of passage, there were some pretty awesome things I learned in January.
Here are some of my favorite tid bits:
Homemade, super cheap, microdermabrasian kit.
Seven foods that should never, ever sneak their way into your body.
This story about a 101 year old marathoner.
This spinach, kiwi, chia smoothie from Joy. Everything she does is lovely.
Why this mom lets her toddler eat butter for dinner.
This post on sweeteners.
Not that I needed another reason to take long, warm baths, but here’s one on the health benefits.
The top 10 highly processed foods to avoid.
This cozy little French chalet. Just couldn’t help but toss that in there.
This homemade cold remedy. Could have used that last week…
Asiago shrimp bisque. Um, yes please. Right now, please.
This homemade horchata recipe. One of my mama’s faves.
The truth about dreaded grains.
Awesome list of homemade, real food snacks.
Is Stevia really healthy? I found out this month.
The benefits of grassfed gelatin in your diet.
How (and why) to wash your hair with clay.
I hope your January was as colorful as mine. Love love.
Happy Friday, Lovelies!
As I mentioned, Friday’s are Food Renegade Fight Back Friday’s around here now, so head on over to Food Renegade to see my recipe as well as hundreds of other Real Food bloggers out there raising awareness about the nutritional, life-changing qualities of real food (by using the tastiest recipes available, of course).
Happy Friday, Food Renegades!
Hugs and Kisses,
When food cravings hit, they can be intense. Like, really intense. I recently woke up craving granola. The sweet, crunchy, cinnamony goodness. Since it was about 472 degrees below zero last week, I found myself in quite the quandary – craving granola, no granola on hand, life-threatening [drama, drama] temperatures outside. My life is so incredibly complicated.
When complex life issues arise, I turn to my recipe arsenal. As you may recall, my breakfast-hating husband has a staunch aversion to the morning meal. Like the Magic Bars, this granola recipe has been known to win the hearts and minds of breakfast haters around the world. My husband is no exception.
This recipe is fantastic. It’s simple, flexible and incredibly scrumptious. I have sensitive teeth, so storebought granola (not to mention being laden with all sorts of sugars and preservatives) tends to be too hard for my delicate little darlings. The coconut oil in this recipe creates the perfect tender texture.
Feel free to use whatever nuts you have on hand (minds out of gutter, people), toss in some dried fruit, and mix up the spices to suite your tastes.
Time: 1.5 hours Servings: 3 lbs.
This tasty treat typically keeps for about 2 weeks at room temp, or longer in the frig/freezer, but I seriously doubt it’ll evade consumption for that long.
In light of the New Year, we’re going to be switching things up around here. Keep you all on your toes. I’m just spontaneous like that – crazy like a fox.
For Friday’s, we will be partnering with Food Renegade in a Real Food Recipe Link Up, providing all my readers with additional exposure to the fantastic Real Food Blogger World.
Now don’t get out your black veils and start mourning Friday Faves. They’re not going away, just visiting a bit less often (like any good distant family member). At the end of each month, we’ll highlight the articles, recipes, medical (and fashion) breakthroughs, etc. from the previous month. It will be the same Friday Fave goodness, just 4x’s as awesome.
So, welcome to our first installment of Fight Back Friday – check out my link and tons of other real food tasty treats over at Food Renegade:
Happy Friday, Food Renegades!
Hugs and Happy-New-Years-Kisses,
