Real Food Wednesday 1/16/2013

January 16, 2013 · 86 comments


Welcome and PLEASE read below before you link up as this is a REAL FOOD carnival, and very different from others you may have joined in on.


It’s that crazy time of the week when you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY tips and ideas or recipes! (Visit that link if you’re new and want to learn even more about this blog carnival.) Remember, if you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site by participating!

This is how I built up my traffic in the beginning, and don’t miss my tips below.

CAN YOU HELP? 6 rules and tips:  Note: here’s where those of you who are new will want to read carefully, thank you!

1. It’s not easy for me to catch them all on my own, and I’d really like everyone to play fair, so if you see any posts that don’t link back to this post (blog carnival etiquette you know!), can you email me please? If you don’t know how, I explain it at this REAL FOOD WEDNESDAY link.

I hate playing hardball and removing links, so let’s all be good to the others who are bringing more traffic to your blogs with their links by doing the same, OK?

2. Also, PLEASE let me know if you see a recipe posted that is blatantly not Real Food. Someone who is striving and on the journey is one thing, as we all are, but if it’s really bad (canned bread, meat substitutes, Velveeta, margarine/vegetable oil–palm or coconut are ok though–Egg Beaters, unfermented soy/tofu or any other fake food), please tell me so I can remove it. If I’ve removed your post, I hope there are no hard feelings, but people come to this post for Real Food ideas, and I don’t want to disappoint.

3. I hope you’ll retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!

4. Please don’t link up to your post where you’re writing about something as an affiliate if I’m already an affiliate for the same thing, OK? That includes giveaway posts.  That’s just not cool.

5. Want more traffic at your blog? if you’re linking up and hoping for more traffic to your blog, can I make a suggestion for how to boost your traffic? Besides just adding your link to the Mr. Linky doohicky, if you also comment and include just ONE interesting sentence to grab the readers attention AND a link to that specific post, you’ll get more hits for sure, at least from me anyway. I don’t often have time to go through every single link, although I know a lot of people do, but one thing I always do is read the comments. If there’s a sentence that grabs my interest AND a link to get me there easily, I’m much more apt to visit!

6. Don’t have a blog? We still want to hear from you! Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.

Thank you!

You’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about why it is likely that the original Paleolithic diet was full of animal fat, since Weston A. Price found that Native Americans treasured animal fat. Some even threw the lean meat to their dogs.

    Did Paleo People Eat Lean Meat, or Fat?

    This week I’m sharing 3 great recipes. If you only try one, you’ve got to try the Best EVER Broccoli. It is soooo flavorful!
    Live in Victory!

    Thanks for hosting! I just started a new blog for people healing autoimmune conditions through diet. The post I shared is my healing story, but I’ll be sharing other people’s stories over the coming months too, along with details on healing foods. It’s wonderful to join such a great community.

    Hey Kelly – thanks for hosting! We’ve shared a couple of gluten free recipes and our latest in our Baby Steps to Better Health series – this “check-in” describes my own experience recovering from holiday indulgences and offers some advice from others trying to leave the holiday food table behind.

    Good morning.Today I am sharing Warm Winter Salad, which combines purple cabbage and garbanzos for a mid-winter boost of antioxidants and iron.

    I’m on a cabbage kick, so am also sharing Pork, Cabbage and Potato Bake. Easily interchangeable with grassfed beef, this is a one-dish wonder you prep in a couple of minutes, pop in the oven and have dinner on the table in about an hour.

    Thanks for hosting!

    Thanks for hosting us every week, Kelly! This week I am sharing a sprouted flour southern style biscuit recipe. It was a real hit with my kids! Hope you all enjoy it.


    23 Heather@DiaryofaSmallTownEarthMuffin January 16, 2013 at 1:08 pm

    Thanks for hosting! I left the post about planting a lemon tree…in the winter! :-) Have a good week!


    24 Rachel January 16, 2013 at 1:19 pm

    Thanks Kelly. :)
    I, like everyone else in the country, am doing everything I can to avoid the flu, including eating mass quantities of bone broth. This chicken and dumplings recipe is an old family favorite of mine, but I altered it to use spelt flour instead. It’s a great way to use your bone broth in a more interesting way than just drinking it!(If you want to soak your grains, just use buttermilk instead to soak.)


    25 Rachel @ day2day joys January 16, 2013 at 3:47 pm

    Thanks for your link up, I’m going to be better about linking up this year!


    26 Heather @Gluten-Free Cat January 16, 2013 at 9:20 pm

    I’m back to share a green salad…Kiwi Avocado Kale. Have a great week!


    27 Emily @ Holistic Squid January 17, 2013 at 9:36 pm

    Hi, Thanks for hosting! I’m linking my post on Stevia. Is Stevia Healthy? I decided to do some research. Use it to make an informed decision for yourself.

    Have a great day!


    28 Sara@AJoyfulMother January 17, 2013 at 10:08 pm

    I also posted some thoughts I had about eating what we are offered, and how I feel about real food.


    29 Desiree Fleck January 18, 2013 at 12:52 pm

    I think the admin of this web page is truly working hard for his site, for the reason that here every material
    is quality based material.
