Real Food Wednesday 2/6/2013


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. 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!

    Could you please remove link #35 that just says Lauren…I obviously did that wrong!! LOL Sorry!

    Anyway, hi! My name is Lauren and I’m a Health Coach that focuses on metabolism and healthy permanent weight loss. My blog is new and this is my first time posting but I’ve been following this blog and a few others up here for a while now and I’m excited to get involved! My post today is called Why Diets SUCK and it’s all about what dieting does to the body. I hope you enjoy it :)

    Thanks for hosting again! I had the privilege of interviewing Dr. Terry Wahls this week. She’s the woman who reversed her MS through diet. You may have seen the video of her TED talk, which went viral last year. In our interview, she shares the details of her personal journey, progress of her medical research, and the diet behind her healing.

    Just added our family favorite Big Batch, Nutrient-Dense Pancake recipe to today’s Real Food Wednesday recipes. This recipe makes about 25 4-5 inch pancakes and is a great way for busy moms to COOK ONCE and have the kids eat many times! Thanks for this great forum for sharing, Kelly!
