Real Food Wednesday 7/11/2012

July 11, 2012 · 86 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 (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!

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how you can ingest second-hand soy toxins from animals that were fed soy, and how you can avoid those toxins by eating grassfed and pastured meat and eggs.

    Avoid Second-Hand Soy—Just Eat Grassfed

    I’m sharing a post on micronutrient deficiencies; specifically potassium.


    10 Justine @ The Lone Home Ranger July 11, 2012 at 7:07 am

    Hi! My recipe for vinegar-based cabbage slaw is so quick and easy and pairs nicely with grilled meat…and unlike mayonnaise-based slaws, you don’t have to worry about leaving it outside!


    11 Heather @Gluten-Free Cat July 11, 2012 at 7:24 am

    Happy Wednesday! I’m linking up a refreshing, light summer smoothie…Orange Sweet Potato Smoothie. Enjoy!!

    Thanks for hosting! I’m sharing my favorite summer veggie side dish:
    Leftovers are also amazing warmed up over brown rice – it’s a perfect lunch (or even breakfast!).


    16 Lynette@VictoryHomemaking July 11, 2012 at 9:20 am

    Thanks Kelly for hosting!

    Strawberry season was a little late here in the Pac NW but you can certainly use frozen berries in place of fresh. Also, this easy sourdough bread has become a staple in my house. So easy and so good…especially with the strawberry jam!

    Live in Victory! Lynette

    I left a link to my plan to cure adrenal fatigue with diet. Today is day one for me – wish me luck and better health!


    18 Jill @ The Prairie Homestead July 11, 2012 at 9:36 am

    Hey Kelly!
    Today I shared two posts that I’m really excited about-
    #1- How to eat your weeds! Lots of ideas and tips for using Lamb’s Quarters in your kitchen.
    #2- A No-Cook Strawberry jam recipe sweetened with raw honey- I hate cooking and sugaring my lovely, in-season berries to death. ;)

    Thanks for hosting!


    19 Amber @ Rowan & Oak July 11, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Hi Kelly,
    My first time linking up with you. Very excited! I’m linking a tutorial on how to make medicinal wild fruit and honey syrups for eating or for medicine. This particular one was made with wild-harvested Oregon Grape berries.

    24 Marianne July 11, 2012 at 12:55 pm

    Our CSA fruit share is providing so much fruit! Simple tarts like this one are helping me make sure that nothing gets wasted.


    25 France @ Beyond The Peel July 11, 2012 at 1:18 pm

    Hi! I posted about encouraging my readers to sign up for the real food summit. I also wrote about what I’ve learned so far from the various speakers I’ve listened to. Thanks!


    27 Debbie July 11, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    Hey, thanks for the RFW’s. Been reading for a while so hope that I joined up correctly with my link for this my first time. Thanks!


    28 Debbie July 11, 2012 at 3:01 pm

    oops, so sorry, I noticed that I made a mistake and linked up incorrectly using my name. Please remove if you can. Thanks!


    29 Amanda July 11, 2012 at 3:39 pm

    Thanks for hosting! I am writing an apartment homesteading series and this week is all about learning to cook! Some easy cooking tips, links to some of my favorite food sites, and a few very simple whole food recipes!


    30 Kristel from Healthy Frugalista July 11, 2012 at 3:45 pm

    I posted Tip to Cut Meat Costs, #84. It’s about replacing part of the meat in recipes with sprouted lentils. This little tip has saved me a lot of money. I also included some surprising info on using raw sprouted lentils.


    31 Scott Kustes July 11, 2012 at 4:09 pm

    Yummy…curried banana chicken! I made this one up recently and it’s become a new fave!


    32 Kendahl July 11, 2012 at 4:50 pm

    This week I’m sharing my post on how my son had his Golden Birthday. I also talk about our family tradition of having the Birthday Fairy visit, and I give my recipe for Yellow Butter Cake with Vanilla-Honey Buttercream.

    I’m also putting on my Nerd Hat to talk about stress, the sympathetic nervous system, cortisol, and other culprits that might be making you fat. (But, as usual, I don’t engage in sizism, and I use the word “fat” as a neutral descriptor.)


    33 Heather July 11, 2012 at 5:04 pm
    34 Shaye @ The Elliott Homestead July 11, 2012 at 7:30 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! I posted a recipe with a new favorite of mine – FIGS!


    35 Sam July 11, 2012 at 8:29 pm

    I linked a recipe for zucchini tacos with kohlrabi-radish slaw, but summer school does funny things to a teacher’s brain and I typed my own name instead of the name of the recipe… If you click on “Sam” you can see it. Sigh.


    36 April @ fringe eating July 11, 2012 at 9:46 pm

    Here’s a quick and easy sauce for your fish or veggies!
    Thanks for hosting. Can’t wait to hear your presentation on Friday!


    37 Kimberly Hartke July 12, 2012 at 10:17 am

    For those of you who live in Northern Virginia, please check out this wonderful workshop on how to nourish yourself during and after pregnancy!


    38 Brandis July 12, 2012 at 12:07 pm

    Thanks as always for hosting! I linked up a post that is the start of a series I’m doing on affording real food.


    39 Erin@TheHumbledHomemaker July 13, 2012 at 9:27 am

    I left a link for some quick & easy lunch ideas. Thank you!
