Real Food Wednesday 6/19/2013

June 19, 2013 · 60 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 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!

    1 Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat June 19, 2013 at 12:36 am

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about yet another flawed study claiming that red meat increases the risk of Type 2 diabetes. If you look at the numbers, you can see how flawed their conclusion is. And once again they do not take into account the differences between grassfed meat and factory meat.

    Study Does not Prove that Grassfed Red Meat Increases Diabetes Risk

    I love sharing and reading all the link ups each week. Thanks for hosting!
    Strawberry season is upon us and we are thinking of wonderful ways to use up the abundance of strawberries that overwhelming us. It’s a great problem to have. And being gluten free (because my nursing 10 month old is sensitive to wheat) has made me find different recipes than I was used to using before. Enjoy!

    Hello and thanks for hosting! I shared a recipe make-over – an improved version of a Hamburger Helper, which my husband loved. This is way better tasting and much more nutritious, and still quick and easy.

    Have a great day!

    20 This Woman Writes -- Carolyn Henderson June 20, 2013 at 2:48 pm

    I’m number 86, the Exhausted Smiley Face Emoticon, and if you’re wondering what this ubiquitous, overly used symbol has to do with real food and recipes, suffice it to say that the thing is becoming so prevalent that people are using it in their recipes, as in,

    1 cup spinach, but use another green if you have it. :-)

    Please, this has to stop. We have a lot to say, and when we shortchange our writing with shortcuts, we lose the significance of our message. Real food is important. So is the Real Writing used to write about it.
