Real Food Weekly Recipe: Yummy Links I Love

It has been quite the month so far in our little household.  Nothing like a sick child to turn your routine upside down and inside out.  I will be writing about my experiences managing this acute illness - I learned A LOT!  And hopefully other moms can benefit.  So since things have been a little chaotic I haven't had a chance to try out the next in line on my list of recipes.  Instead I am going to share some of my favourite real food recipes posted throughout cyber space that have kept us nourished through illness.

Nourishing Days Fluffy Coconut Flour Pancakes - grain and dairy free.  They make a great alternative to dry toast when you are sick.  On good days, they are a favourite on weekends, and the recipes makes a big batch so they are perfect to freeze between parchment paper for a mid week change to the breakfast menu.

Health, Home and Happiness "Looks like Whole Wheat" Biscuits - I reserve the egg whites when making my smoothie with the raw yolk in the morning to make these biscuits.  They are great with soup, eggs, or just on their own for a little snack.  Coconut flour is very high in fiber and makes a great grain free baking alternative.

The Nourishing Gourmet Simple Chicken Noodle Soup because we have all been under the weather and need some chicken soup TLC.  I always add extra garlic and ginger to mine and use homemade chicken broth in place of some of the water.

For a grain-free version of this soup, try this recipe:

A delicious Apple Pear Sauce from Nourished Kitchen is easy on upset tummies:  You can simplify this by just cooking the apples and pears until they are soft and mushy, add some cinnamon and puree until smooth.  

Hope your family is staying healthy this February!
