Real Food Wednesday 6/26/2013

June 26, 2013 · 59 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 26, 2013 at 12:53 am

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about a very traditional American food: grassfed and pastured meat. Meat was a major reason why people immigrated to America from Europe, where meat was restricted and very expensive. The colonists thrived on their good meat.

    I wish I could re-post my link…when it said ‘my name’, I thought it really meant my name. Obviously, it meant the name of the post. Did anyone else have this problem??
    Well, thanks for hosting and I am sharing a lovely copycat BBQ recipe that should be tried by everyone who likes sweet and tangy BBQ sauce. :) :)



    16 Tiffany @ June 26, 2013 at 11:47 am

    Good Morning! Finances seem to always be tight, but I think we all agree that nutrition shouldn’t suffer. Today I’m sharing a post on how to grind flour without a grain mill. Plus, an excellent sourdough bread recipe that’s perfect for beginning sourdough bakers! As always, thanks for hosting! ~Tiffany

    If you stick around and read, I’ve also been telling my story of incredible healing and weight loss. Hope to see you ’round!

    Thanks for hosting again! This week, I shared a round-up of grain-free/egg-free breakfasts and desserts, and also a success story to keep us all inspired on our healing journeys. Have a great week!


    21 Olivia June 26, 2013 at 2:57 pm

    Look at all these great articles!

    Today I shared a recipe for Summer Cherry Slaw and Homemade Coconut and Olive Oil Mayonnaise.

    My mayo is a little different than most as it uses more oil. Per Julia Child, one egg yolk should hold a cup of oil. This ain’t no sissy mayo! We’re gonne make these yolks hold as much oil as possible.

    Thanks, Kelly!!


    22 Jennifer in PA June 26, 2013 at 8:39 pm

    I accidently left my name rather than the blog post. I shared an article about rye flour and a recipe for sourdough rye bread which I love.

    Thanks for hosting! This week I’ve shared a recipe for strawberry jam fruit snacks:

    Have a great week!


    24 This Woman Writes -- Carolyn Henderson June 27, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    Thank you for hosting. This week I am number 83 — Garden Produce — To Can or Not to Can.

    Lots of stuff out there in the garden, and it keeps me busy figuring out what to do with it. One thing I don’t do with it is can it, not because I’m difficult but because, dang, I just don’t like to can. So we eat lots and lots and lots of zucchini. And then we move on to something else, constantly seeking out fresh food as it arrives, and giving the excess to the animals and compost pile.

    I’m still frugal. I still save money. Just not by canning.

    Hi Kelly, thanks for hosting! Today I left a yummy and easy recipe for Honey Coconut Butter- 2 Ways. One way uses raw chocolate powder and the other recipe uses a 70% dark chocolate bar. Have a great weekend!
