Real Food Wednesday 3/14/2012


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!

    We’d like to share our delicious soft tacos made with slow-roasted pulled pork, raw jack cheese, avocado and pickled ginger carrots:

    We’re also sharing our recipe for dutch baby pancakes made with sprouted (kamut) flour, with sauteed cinnamon apples and whipped cultured maple cream:

    Lastly, we’d like to share our latest post in retaliation against the recent red meat fearmongering:

    Thank you!

    I also linked up some homemade beeswax candles (that are SUPER easy) I know they aren’t edible… Well actually I guess they would be but I don’t recommend it, many of us that are concerned about real food are also concerned about removing environmental toxins in which candles can be a player- so take 30 minutes and make some of your own candles from all natural beeswax…

    This week I’m continuing my series on organ meats with a look at how to easily incorporate beef heart & liver in ground meat dishes. Your family will never know it’s there! I also had a bit of fun coming up with 7 signs that you’re on the GAPS Diet. I’d love to hear from any other GAPSters who have some additional signs to add!

    Hi Kelly! I shared my recipe for Carrot Cake Muffins. My recipe is gluten free, but these can be made with “regular” flour if you don’t have issues with gluten. These muffins are incredibly moist with 3 cups of shredded carrots plus pineapple, raisins and coconut.
    Thanks for hosting!

    Hello! Thanks for hosting! This week I am linking to my post on how I manage my budget for large real food expenses like a whole hog or two gallons of coconut oil or 100# of grassfed ground beef. Stop by and see how my budget compares to yours!

    Hi Kelly! Thank you for hosting this link-up…. Today I shared an experiment that WORKED! My nearly-two-year-old calls them Monkey Bars. Banana brownies made with gluten free flour and sweetened with a bit of maple syrup.

    I also shared whole wheat and flaxseed biscuits. They are perfect for a sandwich.

    Have a great week. Hopefully the weather stays beautiful where you are, too.

    This week we have a house full of eight sick children! The weather changed and all the bacteria outside has been stirred up so lots of people are getting sick now. This week I shared about different home remedies for the flu, along with a steam treatment using essential oils.

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly!
