Real Food Wednesday 1/23/2013

January 23, 2013 · 61 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!

    1 Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat January 23, 2013 at 1:13 am

    My post this week is about how the brain needs good saturated fat like, grassfed fat. Weston A. Price’s research showed this.

    (Mr. Linky doesn’t seem to be working yet, aren’t computers complicated and frustrating sometimes?) But here is a link to my post.

    Grassfed Fat, the Real Brain Food

    3 Mishelle@LoveandButter January 23, 2013 at 7:15 am

    Here’s a link to the most amazing bread I have yet to discover. It is very simple and really does look and taste like something out of an artisan bakery!


    4 Pam@behealthybehappywellness January 23, 2013 at 7:15 am

    Thanks for the link up! My post this week is my healthy version of french fries:


    5 Mishelle@LoveandButter January 23, 2013 at 8:02 am

    I’m also adding my Real Food Version of my all time favorite comfort food. Parmesan Noodles.


    6 Lisa @ HappyinDoleValley January 23, 2013 at 8:16 am

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! Sharing our recipe for blueberry almond sourdough muffins — a great way to use up some of the blueberries many of us have stashed away in our freezers! Blessings, ~Lisa


    7 suzyhomemaker January 23, 2013 at 8:26 am

    Thanks for hosting. I shared a link on comparing a veggie burger to a hamburger. Probably preaching to the choir, but oh well :)


    8 Justine @ The Lone Home Ranger January 23, 2013 at 8:35 am

    My kids needed antibiotics to ward off bacterial pneumonia last month, so I ended up allowing antibiotics. I did lots of research to come up with the best plan of rebuilding their delicate gut flora and immune system, and I shared my results here:


    9 Rachel January 23, 2013 at 9:08 am

    Thanks as always, Kelly!

    Today I shared a recipe my son brought home from school – the farmers from our local CSA visited his class and had them make hummus. (How cool is that!) He was completely stoked about it, so of course I had to make it – only I also added an entire head of sweet roasted garlic. I’ve never liked hummus, but even I LOVED it!

    I’m also sharing the way my family makes popcorn – infusing the salt and butter right into the kernels so that there’s no need to melt butter and pour it on top and make it all soggy and greasy. Full of flavor and crisp and dry!


    10 Dina-Marie @ Cultured Palate January 23, 2013 at 9:09 am

    Thanks for hosting again this week!

    I shared “Cheese Fondue” which is family favorite and so easy to make. Plus, “Essential Oils Restore Hearing!” which really worked for me. Sorry about #21 if you could delete it I would appreciate it – thanks Kelly!

    Have a great week!


    11 Peggy January 23, 2013 at 9:11 am

    Who doesn’t love a crockpot meal? Mushroom Chicken and Rice! YUM!


    12 Little Sis January 23, 2013 at 9:29 am

    Thanks for hosting Kelly – this week my sister and I shared some ideas on how to use barley at breakfast, a recipe for roasting and mixing cauliflower in with mashed potatoes, and a recipe for cauliflower steaks, which were a pleasant surprise for me.


    13 Linda @ Axiom at Home January 23, 2013 at 9:39 am

    Hello and Happy Wednesday! Today I shared Part 2 of my bra series, which includes product reviews.

    Thanks for hosting! Linda

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!

    This week I am sharing some really interesting info I’ve found out about BEETS. What an amazing, healing food!


    15 Sara@AJoyfulMother January 23, 2013 at 9:40 am

    Thank you for hosting! I linked up one of my posts about how I feel about what people think about how my family eats, and my response to it.
    I will also link up an update to the guilt free fudge drops with 8 tasty tried and true variations! They are delicious! And an update about my no poo experiment (hint, it is going very well!)
    Thank you!!


    16 Eileen January 23, 2013 at 9:50 am

    Thanks for hosting! This week I wrote up a detailed comparison of 3 popular healing diets: Gaps, Paleo & Wahls:

    19 Tamara@Oh Lardy January 23, 2013 at 10:42 am

    I left our favorite recipe for stuffed peppers. My family has these at least twice a month! And the stuffing is freezable for a quick meal on a busy night!

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!


    20 Melissa @ Real Food Eater January 23, 2013 at 12:01 pm

    Hi Kelly! I linked up my Bean & Sausage soup. The original recipe is from my grandma and I just added a few things to make it “real food” friendly (like homemade broth). All 4 of my kids ate it and my hubby thought it was fabulous!


    21 Debbie @ Easy Natural Food January 23, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing my recipe for gluten free Carrot-Zucchini muffins.


    22 Sarah Ealey @ Sense of Wander January 23, 2013 at 12:53 pm

    Thanks for the opportunity! I just started blogging, and I am loving it. I’m sharing a little guide about eating during the winter season in the Pacific Northwest, with Recipes!


    23 gabi January 23, 2013 at 4:27 pm

    This week I’m giving away two copies of Shanahan’s Deep Nutrition, a wonderful primer a la WAPF on traditional foods and how they can make or break your genetics.


    24 Melissa @ Dyno-mom January 23, 2013 at 10:20 pm

    Thanks again for hosting us! This week I have a post all about ways to incorporate more liver into your diet. I promise, they all taste good and pass the test of ALL of my ten kids.


    25 Emily @ Holistic Squid January 24, 2013 at 8:26 pm

    Hi, Thanks for hosting! I’m linking up a recipe for Pomegranate Sauerkraut. It may sound crazy, but this is a beautiful blend that goes great with almost any dinner.

    Have a great day!

    mmmmm…I love yogurt and berries!


    28 Melodie January 29, 2013 at 10:15 pm

    I wanted to share my post on how to buy real food on a very tight budget, specifically for the real food newbie who primarily shops at supermarkets.
