Real Food Wednesday – Yes, This Week on a Thursday 4/18/2013

April 18, 2013 · 26 comments

***Just for this week, I moved RFW to a Thursday, sorry for any confusion.  I’ve never done this before and it’s highly unlikely that I’ll do it again!


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!

    Today I’m sharing my recipe for a Sweet Potato Spinach Frittata–an all-in-one breakfast that is tasty and easy to make.

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week was inspired by my delicious first barbecue of the season. It’s about the joys and advantages of traditional barbecue, humankind’s first cooking method, the way the cavemen cooked.

    Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing our family’s favorite way to enjoy asparagus!

    If you like cauliflower mash, you’ll love this rendition of mashed veggies. I called it “Mystery Mash” because when my hubby tasted it, he couldn’t tell me what was in it! Not only that, it’s more of an idea than a recipe, because you can mix it up any way you want. Check it out in the links.

    Hi! I have been exploring baking with almond flour without eggs due to a suspected allergy in the family. I came up with a great banana bread recipe that I am sharing!

    Jenefer – how do you make your cinnamon-sugar butter healthily? This sounds yummy!


    7 jennefer April 18, 2013 at 4:13 pm

    Hi Leigh :)

    I just use the best quality butter I can find. I like kerrygold or humboldt grass fed butter. But I did use a tablespoon of just regular old brown sugar :( Bad me huh…. but you could do honey or I bet coconut sugar would be yummy too


    8 leigh April 19, 2013 at 11:47 am

    Yummy, good ideas! I will have to try this out, thank you!

    Do you grind your own fresh flour? Here’s a recipe for homemade pancakes….and NO WORRIES!!! If you don’t grind your own flour, I’ve noted that store-bought flours can work too! Enjoy!

    Thanks for the link up party, Kelly. I found out about you and your blog on the Village Green Network seminar a couple weeks ago.

    Thanks for hosting again! This week on the link-up, I’m celebrating veggies. First is an in depth look into Dr. Terry Wahls protocol of 9 cups veggies per day. Second is one of my favorite recipes: Honey Mustard Broccoli Salad.

    Here’s one of my daughters favorite recipes it’s a great way to get even the pickiest toddlers to eat their greens! You can change up the greens for kale, swiss chard, spinach and make them savory or sweet depending on what your in the mood for. My 2 year old is the ultimate picky eater and she loves these!

    Thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing my Whole Wheat Blender Waffles. It doesn’t get easier than throwing all the ingredients into a blender – including whole wheat berries! I hope you enjoy! :)

    If it’s only just a little tiny bit of “bad,” then does it really matter? Why should someone else be allowed to make that decision for us? I shared a Q&A style post on why we should care about what’s in our food, regardless if the bad stuff is labeled as “dietarily insignificant” by the FDA. Thanks for hosting!!

    Make a restaurant quality meal made with real food and under 30-40 minutes!
