Real Food Wednesday 2/27/2013


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!

    Thank you for hosting this! I love participating in the blog hops/blog carnivals.

    I posted my Holy Guacamole recipe this week. Vegetarian, non-GMO/Organic and OH so tasty! You can omit the Greek yogurt in this recipe to make it totally Vegan.

    This won’t last long when you make it, so double the recipe! :)

    Thanks very much for hosting this week after week! This week I shared a post I did on eating real food when staying in a hotel for a few weeks (with little ones in tow). Have a wonderful day!

    This week I’m sharing my recipe for Gluten Free Country Seed Bread. It is a hearty and dense bread, perfect for dipping in good olive oil, or enjoying along side a hot bowl of soup. Have a great week – thank you for hosting!

    Wow…last week I was overwhelmed with all of the awesome entries at this party; this week does not disappoint.

    I posted, “Calendula-Hula-Who!?? (and why YOU should know)” this week. Calendula is the “poor (wo)man’s saffron.” In this post I detail what these flowers are like and how you can use them (they are pretty, you can eat them, and they make a great remedy for many ailments). I hope you enjoy!

    Thanks again for hosting,
    Jess, aka Scratch Mommy

    Hi Kelly!

    I wrote about how you can love your liver by eating it, and included a simple chicken liver and leeks (or onions) recipe.

    If I can learn to like it, others DEFINITELY can, too. Thanks!

    I submitted a new link for this Real Food Wednesday…. I love seeing all these great recipes in one place. Thanks for hosting this. I finally got it together to start blogging about my REAL FOOD kitchen crafting, and it’s awesome to be able to share with each other.
