Keep It Real Thursdays – Breakfast, Snack, Drink, Dinner and Eating Your Veg

Welcome to another Keep It Real Thursday. Today we have all kinds of fun things to share…as we do every Thursday. Last week it was soup and, oh boy, there was soup. There’s enough in that post to keep you going with warming comforting bowls of goodness all winter long.

This week, I thought I’d balance it out. Something for breakfast, something for lunch (not soup, that was last week), something for dinner, don’t forget snack time, and one post encompasses them all. You can guess which one that is.

Tessa The Domestic Diva

Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins (GF and Vegan)

No words necessary. Hello deliciousness!

The Spinach Spot

Pear and Cucumber Juice…or smoothie

This is great. She’ll show you how to juice without a juicer (good to know), but I would drink this right out of the blender as a smoothie! In fact I’m having this the minute my pears ripen.

Jeanette’s Healthy Living

9 Layer Mexican Dip

Who doesn’t want to get their snack on with this? Thought so.

Easy Natural Food

Moroccan Beef

Great for lunch and dinner, put it in a wrap on on a salad, add it to broth and veggies and you have soup. Very versatile.

5 Strategies to Eat More Brain Food

Last week I mentioned a post that highlighted 3 different types of popular diets and what they are. This post “5 Strategies to Eat More Brain Food” is based on one of those, the Dr. Wahls Diet. I love a diet that recommends we eat 9 cups of veggies a day. I actually believe she’s bang on when it comes to the health benefits that come with eating so many veggies. If you’ve never heard of her then this is a great Ted Talk that is very inspiring.

Now that you’ve seen it, you’re probably wondering “how the heck does one eat that many veggies in one day?” Now you need to read this.

 

Keep It Real Thursday

1. Introduce yourself, your blog, and what you’re about in the comment section and a small blurb about what you’re sharing. This way people can get to know you a little bit right off the hop and hopefully follow you as well.

2. Be sure to add a link in your post back to this post otherwise the linky tool will give you an error message. Though it was suggested you add a back link to THIS post in YOUR post, it will now be required. Copy and paste the link in the address bar above and add it to your site before trying to link it here. Otherwise the linky tool will give you an error message. If you have any questions about how to do that, just send me an email and I can walk you through it. Thanks everyone for the support and your involvement in Keep It Real Thursdays! This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.

3. If you’re sharing recipes,the ingredient list must be comprised of real food only, that means non-processed food items. That being said, we are all in different places on our real food journey, some more advanced than others. I invite all of you to share, no matter where you are on your journey, but I ask you to stay mindful when sharing your recipes that this is a whole (real) food blog. This means, no ingredient lists that include edible oil products (velveeta, frozen whip topping), protein powders, ketchup, white flour, margarine or white and brown sugar.

4. Less of a rule but more a suggestion: Retweet,  Stumble, or Pin this post so EVERYONE gets more exposure and traffic. It’s win-win for everyone.

Don’t have a blog? That’s ok, we’d still love to hear from you. Write your recipes or tips in the comment section so we can get to know you too!

Now it’s your turn to share your whole food recipes and ideas!

    Thanks for hosting again! I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Terry Wahls this week. (The woman you featured in Foy Update’s post.) In our interview, she shares the details of her personal journey, progress of her medical research, and more information on the diet behind her healing.

    • beyondthepeel February 7, 2013 at 4:39 pm #

      OM goodness. I’m very jealous. What a great interview opportunity. I can’t wait to read all about it. Thanks for sharing it with everyone Eileen.

    Thanks so much for hosting this weekend event! Always fun to see what everyone is up to. Thanks so much for featuring my 9-Layer Mexican Dip – just made it for Super Bowl last weekend and it was a hit. This week, I’m linking up my Chinese Chicken with Chestnuts for Chinese New Year and a Winter Kale and Farro Salad.

    • beyondthepeel February 7, 2013 at 4:37 pm #

      I haven’t had Farro in about a year! I can’t believe it. I look forward to checking it out.

    Hi; I’m Rachel from Titus 2 Homemaker. I don’t link up every week, because I don’t blog recipes every week, but I enjoy stopping by when I do! This week’s post isn’t a recipe, either – rather, it’s a tool for those of us trying to cook healthier. When cooking with real food, planning is essential! Today I’m comparing some digital meal-planning methods. http://titus2homemaker.com/2013/02/which-digital-meal-planning-tool-is-right-for-you/

    • beyondthepeel February 8, 2013 at 4:57 pm #

      Hi Rachel, Thanks for introducing yourself and welcome to the community. Sounds like a great topic. Meal Planning is soooo essential. If there’s tool out there that make it easier, I think we all want to know.

  6. Tiffany @ DontWastetheCrumbs February 7, 2013 at 6:26 pm #

    Morning! I shared a delicious tortilla soup recipe for those who aren’t big on beans. My family is officially converted and beans is now a staple!

    • beyondthepeel February 8, 2013 at 4:55 pm #

      Heck yeah! Thanks awesome. That’s a huge hurdle to overcome. I think we all want to see the soup that did that!

  7. Dina-Marie @ Cultured Palate February 7, 2013 at 7:46 pm #

    Thanks for hosting again this week!

    Today I shared Preparing Beef Heart and Heart Kebobs Recipe.

    Have a great week!

    • beyondthepeel February 8, 2013 at 4:54 pm #

      I can’t say I’ve ever prepared heart before. I can’t wait to learn something new. Thanks Dina-Marie. You always bring something unique to the table.

    Thanks for hosting again France! This week I’m sharing a perfect winter ice cream: Mexican Hot Chocolate Ice Cream! It’s made with grass-fed milk and cream, organic cocoa, coconut sugar, and a hint of cinnamon and cayenne. Who says ice cream is just for summertime? http://plusothergoodstuff.blogspot.com/2013/02/mexican-hot-chocolate-ice-cream.html

    • beyondthepeel February 8, 2013 at 4:53 pm #
