Real Food Wednesday 2/13/2013

February 13, 2013 · 58 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. (Natural lifestyle links are ok, too, though.)  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.  If there’s a sentence that grabs our 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 February 13, 2013 at 1:19 am

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about giving a delicious, romantic meal featuring nutrient-dense grassfed meat for Valentine’s Day, instead of sugar-filled candy.

    Give Grassfed Meat, not Candy, on Valentine’s Day

    Thanks for hosting again this week!

    Today I shared Preparing Beef Heart and Heart Kebobs Recipe. I originally made this recipe after we butchered our first steer but now I purchase beef heart from a grass fed beef farmer locally – it is just that good!

    Have a great week!

    Thanks for hosting, this is my first time linking up!

    I’ve shared my Chia Seed Pudding, made with good-for-you gelatin, chia seeds, and wonderful raw milk. It looks very pretty for Valentine’s Day. I hope you all enjoy!

    First time linking up… so I entered MY name instead of my blog post’s name… yeah. Anyway, delicious DIY chocolate-covered peanut butter nougat candies are what I’m trying to share. :-)

    Thanks so much for hosing Kelly. This week we’ve shared two easy dinners: slow cooker tomato soup and refrigerator stir fry. We’ve also shared our sinfully delicious, but still totally real chocolate almond butter.

    Thanks so much for hosting! We had a challenging time the past few weeks as we had to stay in a hotel for a bit and it was an adventure trying to eat wholesome food while on the road with two littles and a puppy! You can read more about it at

    Today I shared our experience with making lard for the first time. In a nutshell, it was both easier AND smellier than I thought it’d be. It was also totally worth the effort.


    17 Carolyn @ Real Food Houston February 13, 2013 at 5:23 pm

    There’s no Food Freedom in Texas! I’m sharing the sad story of a Texas licensed raw milk dairy farmer forced to dump 700 gallons of good raw milk just because he was delivering raw milk to customers. There was nothing wrong with the milk!


    18 Loriel @ Healthy Roots, Happy Soul February 13, 2013 at 6:06 pm

    Check it out!

    Thank you so much for sharing this space with us, Kelly!

    This is my first time posting to your link up. :)

    My post is about the importance of minerals in our soils for growing nutrient dense foods. I’ve included loads of links to articles and websites devoted to the subject of soil remineralization, as well as a number of different online resources for purchasing rock dusts, seaweeds and sea minerals, which can be added to your garden soil to boost trace mineral content.

    Celebrities are supposed to be good role models, right? Well some of them forget that and CASH IN on starring in unhealthy food commercials! :(

    Defining a particular region for the food choices of these types
    is not at all possible. Take the low-carb tortilla
    or wrap and put about a tablespoon or two of cream on it.
    You can place a lettuce leaf on a plate and put a scoop of chicken salad in the
    middle and serve with reduced calorie crackers.
