Real Food Round Up #1

Real Food Round Up number 1

Happy Saturday!

I’ve been spending a lot of time with family this week, hanging out with my grandparents who I completely adore, and cooking a lot of food per usual. Actually, even more then usual because I have people to cook for that I don’t see very often and I have more recipe testers. I don’t think anyone loses in this situation.

I even have my grandma hooked on a zucchini and KALE stir fry with coconut aminos. This is real. She came home from church yesterday with two monster zucchini from her friend’s garden and requested that I make more of the zucchini dish that I’ve been cooking up all week. I figure that’s one I’ll have to write up and share with you!

For now though, I have a few recipes that I found this week on some of my favorite food blogs that I think you should see. In addition to writing my own blog, I do like to spend some time every week reading other blogs and checking out what other inspiring recipes people are cooking up. My admiration of food blogs came even before my love of real food, and it’s sort of what got me into this whole shebang. Do people even say “shebang” anymore? Am I on fleek?

There are so many new recipes out there each week, and I just want to take the time to share a few of my favorites!

Here are this week’s top four new real food recipes:
