Real Food Wednesday 4/23/2014

April 23, 2014 · 22 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.


A reader friend suggested in my little survey recently that I add a Mr. Linky thumbnail pictures option, so that is now enabled, and you have another good way to draw us in so we’ll click on your recipe. :)


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 (with things like canned bread, meat substitutes, Velveeta, margarine/vegetable oil/canola 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, share on Facebook, and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!  (You can do this easily and quickly with the share links above and below the post.)

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.  But don’t put more than one link in there, or it will get hung up in my moderation area, and you never know how long it will be ’til I get around to approving those.

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! My post this week is about how making traditional bone broth is an ancient, almost mystical activity. I love the benefits of traditional bone broth.

    Thanks for hosting! I’ve shared my cooked mayonnaise recipe that easy and free of most allergens. I also shared my all natural hair care secrets and dispelled a few misconceptions.

    Thanks so much for hosting, Kelly! This week I linked up my post, “Easy HOMEMADE KETCHUP (Probiotic!)” It’s absolutely delicious and full of healthy probiotics. Hope you enjoy! Kids LOVE it. Perfect for the upcoming BBQ and picnic season! <3

    Thanks for hosting. I love being part of the carnival. My post this week talks about the importance of including zinc in your diet.

    Thanks for linking! I have two posts this week on my website, the first one is my own personal Daily Green Juice Recipe, it is oxalate free, made from super simple ingredients, and is great for kidney health! My second post is a guide on vitamins, education is the first step to becoming a healthier person, and teaching people the importance of different vitamins, and what they do, is what this post is all about. Please enjoy them!

    Hi Kelly, Well, for some reason it won’t let me link up this week. So I’ll put a link in here and try again next week! Peace, Sara

    So sorry I accidentally entered my link twice! I thought I’d canceled the first one (with my name instead of the post’s name), but they both appeared. Thanks for hosting and sorry for the double link!
