Keep It Real Thursday – Raw Banana Pumpkin Crackers, Apple Sauce & More!

Welcome To Keep It Real Thursdays!

The theme is REAL FOOD I WANT TO EAT! I guess that’s the theme every week, since I’m doing the picking…

All of these recipes were shared here last week as part of Keep It Real Thursday. All the recipes and information are excellent and if I were to choose tomorrow the outcome might be different. But today this is what I would eat…

Raw Banana Pumpkin Crackers

“Twice-Baked” Faux Tatoes

Sugar Free Apple Sauce is Easy

Mexican Hot Chocolate

Holistic Kid

Keep It Real Thursday

Welcome to Keep It Real Thursday!

The Rules:

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. Simple linky etiquette. This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.

3. If you’re sharing recipes, the only requirement is that the ingredient list 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!

I’m sharing this with Mangia Monday, Monday Mania, My Meatless MondaySlightly Indulgent Tuesday, Tasty Tuesday, Fat TuesdayWhole Foods Wednesday, Cast Party Wednesday, Allergy Free Wednesday, The Tasty Alternative, Real Food Wednesday, Simple Lives Thursday, Full Plate Thursday, and Pennywise Platter Thursday.

    Thanks so much for hosting! This
    week I’ve shared a recipe for Gluten Free Spiced butternut squash scones (very
    much like pumpkin, but orange!). I’ve also shared an article on the safety of sprouted grains for people with celiacs, wheat allergies, and oral allergy syndrome.

    I’d also like to let you know about my new link-up called Waste Not Want Not,
    for recipes, tips on sustainability, green living and other good things :)

    Those crackers certainly caught my eye last week as well! This week I’m sharing my recipe for Saag Paneer, a tasty Indian dish of spinach, ginger, tomatoes, and fresh-made cheese. If you’ve never tried making cheese at home, it is easier than you might think!

    A had a look at many of these delightful recipes… so inspiring – what a great feature France. I’m particularly captivated by the idea of sugar free apple sauce (so hard to find) and those raw banana pumpkin crackers… fabulous!

    That Mexican Hot Chocolate sounds so good right now.

  16. Jeanette Chen October 21, 2012 at 5:44 pm #

    I always enjoy seeing all the great unprocessed recipes here France – so many great ideas and recipes to try. I’ve linked up a quinoa and black lentil salad that I tried to recreate from a meal at a local farm-to-table restaurant.
