Real Food Wednesday 1/11/2012


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 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, 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. (Thank you for understanding!)

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!

    I used to add cheese to egg dishes to add/mask the flavor for my kids. We have gone completely dairy-free so I am having to find new ways to flavor egg dishes. This time I combined Asian veggies and seasonings to make a gf df frittata. Thanks for hosting.

    This week I shared about my thoughts on the real food concept of ideal child spacing – is this issue as black and white as is generally presented?

    As always, thanks for being such a great host, Kelly, and have a wonderful week!

    I linked to a post on how to relate to bad bathroom smells (hint: the answer isn’t to mask the smell), a tutorial on how to make mango chutney, and one on a special little trick to give vegetable soup a special rich taste.

    Thanks for hosting.

    I linked up an article about raw food and how important they are to being healthy. I haven’t linked my post back here yet but I will later when I have access to a computer. Ipad’s won’t let me do it!

    HI Kelly, this week I sharing an essential traditional food skill: how to get whey from raw milk. It’s easy and helps to justify the higher cost. If you’re not throwing it away when it goes sour and finding a way to use it, that’s money well spent.

    Hi! My blog is really an entry level real food blog for parents who are trying to improve the diets of their kids with Sensory Processing Disorder and/or are on the Autism spectrum, so if there are no food dyes and no neurotoxins it’s a good step! This week is home made chicken noodle soup – easy, healthy, and inexpensive. Love it when I can help move the needle a little for folks!

    I posted a delicious gluten free pumpkin cake roll I made fresh milled sprouted and fermented millet and raw whipped cream. A new Favorite for our family. Hope you enjoy it~!

    I’m posting our favorite yeast bread recipe – Honey Oatmeal Bread. We do a lot of sourdough bread around here but sometimes a regular yeast bread is a nice change of pace! I adapted the recipe quite successfully to be soaked and contain more whole grains. It’s delicious!

    We’ve been eating lots of borscht in our family this week, so I couldn’t resist posting our family’s favorite recipe. We love the sweetness of beets, especially at this time of year. (Heck, at any time of year! :-) )

    Thanks as always, everyone, for some great recipes and needed inspiration!

    Happy Wednesday! Today I shared a recipe for Raspberry Custard Pie, made with Omega Crust.

    (I feel bad that I shared the link a few hours before I posted your link back… life with our kids is never dull. The Cadet (20 months) opened every program with an icon and the poor little imac gave me the lollipop. Meanwhile, G-man (3 and a half) was throwing a fit because he could not find a piece to his train set. The mail lady came by and the dog barked, Stealthy Dad came home for lunch… )

    Hello There,

    This week I am submitting two recipes. First, a creamy dairy-free mushroom soup (that takes about 10 minutes!) and a fun granola (coconut ginger). I made some fun parfaits with my vegan, sugar-free pudding and the granola. Super yummy!!

    Have a wonderful week.

    I added my favorite cheesecake recipe, because it has so little sugar and lots of cream cheese! If anyone tries it, let me know what you think! :)

    Hi Kelly! This week I’ve shared my Apple and Cardamom Muffin recipe as well as the Apple Sauce recipe which is part of the mixture! Have a lovely week!
