Real Food Wednesday 4/10/2013

April 10, 2013 · 72 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!

    Thanks for hosting Kelly!
    The diabolical motivation in putting high fructose corn syrup into just about every processed food there is, although horrendously evil, is no less than brilliant as a business plan.

    24 This Woman Writes -- Carolyn Henderson April 10, 2013 at 1:53 pm

    You know, I’ve never been married to the house, so I”ve never liked the term “housewife.” I like “dumb housewife” even less, but it’s the societal judgment on my lifestyle that I’ve lived for 30 years. Glad I didn’t listen to society, and I’m glad that the new generation of smart, savvy women isn’t listening to it either.

    We need all sorts of people in this world, doing all sorts of things.


    25 Rachel April 10, 2013 at 2:25 pm

    I finally found a use for that huge bag of buckwheat groats I bought last fall! These Buckwheat Peanut Butter Krispies were a hit with even my non-real-food eating friends.

    How do you know if your olive oil is pure? Are you sure it hasn’t been watered down with a cheaper vegetable oil? There’s only one way to tell (and the label has nothing to do with it). I shared a simple two-step process for determining the purity of your olive oil. I also shared a how-to guide for buying, storing and cooking with olive oil… get that oil off the counter and away from the stove!


    28 Linda Zurich April 10, 2013 at 7:40 pm

    Making your own salad dressing makes salad about 20 times better than using store bought.

    Though it appears counterintuitive, make certain to drink a lot of water in your pregnancy.
    Does walking, getting into and out of the car, climbing stairs or any other
    one legged activity make the pain worse. During pregnancy,
    the weight of an woman’s abdomen shifts her center of gravity. Sharks – Dogfish Sharks gestation can last approximately 24 months, although a number of species of sharks may have longer pregnancies. If you are a lady and desire to get pregnant however are over 40 years old you might desire to think about some of these health threats associated with pregnancy over 40.
