Real Food Wednesday 7/25/2012


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 (canned bread, meat substitutes, Velveeta, margarine/vegetable 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 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. (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, at least from me anyway. I don’t often have time to go through every single link (although I know a lot of people do), but one thing I always do is read the comments. If there’s a sentence that grabs my 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!

    This week I am sharing my post on Can Sleepy Make You Skinny? What do you think?

    I also have a killer recipe for Orangies. (Why, they’re orange brownies of course!)

    Good morning, Kelly! I’m sharing a Creamy Green Pudding Smoothie that’s dairy-free. The creaminess comes from avocado and banana. And it’s packed with nutrients from the spinach. Love it! Have a great day!!

    Hi Kelly! I’m sharing a post I wrote when I was in Honduras. I thought of you when I was interviewing the remote communities where my organization sends volunteer work teams. When hosting North Americans, the women have been told (by the North Americans) to use oil instead of lard! Ugh! And now that their economic status is rising, they are starting to fry everything in oil since they can afford it now. It’s depressing.

    I shared the “best breakfast EVER” post. I eat this breakfast just about every morning. The trick is, preparing enough soaked oats for the week ahead of time. Keep your supply in the frig.

  5. says

    Thank you so much for hosting! I shared an Avocado, Red Onion and Orange salad. I’m not only new to blogging, but I’m also new into eating REAL FOODS. It’s a new process for my family and me, but I’m determined to do this for us. I love your site and thank you for keeping me ‘in the know’ on all things real.

    Okay, having had the experience of staying and cooking on the farm, I am still opposed to meals from cans and boxes. Here I lay out why I still won’t cook with cream o’ barf soup!

    Thanks for hosting! TOday I shared a vegan zucchini saute recipe. Also gluten free the recipe is easy to make and full of fresh summer flavors. Buy the zucchini and tomatoes at a local farm to make the flavors burst even more!

    Thanks Kelly! I always love what people link up here. I got sucked in as usual and now have 12 more tabs open. :)

    I am sharing the beginning of big things at 20 something allergies! We are beginning a journey into gut healing for our readers to heal allergies and chronic illnesses. We’ll do it though a rotation diet and Primal-style foods that will be very similar to GAPS. I will also be launching a meal plan program focused on a rotation diet. It is the first of its kind in the REAL FOOD blogosphere!

    This is part 2 in a series of posts explains just what a rotation diet is.
