Real Food Wednesday 8/14/2013

August 14, 2013 · 44 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!

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about the similarity between basing scientific findings on partial data and the old story of the six blind men and an elephant. A big problem with food science is that it is based on partial information. I have had great success in following a diet based on Dr. Weston A. Price’s work.

    I have two links this week. One is for some amazing chocolate zucchini cookies, that are healthy! They use a mix of healthy flours and nuts/seeds AND only a minimal amount of sugar. These things fill you up without giving you a sugar crash.
    My other link is for making fruit leather, it really couldn’t be any easier!
    Thanks for hosting again!

    Thanks for hosting this week, Kelly. :-) I’m glad to be participating again after an absence while we migrated and redesigned our website. A process I’m very thankful to have behind me!

    Today I posted two garlic recipes (#12 and #13) that are sure to be crowd-pleasers for the family and will boost immunity for the coming cold/flu season, too! All the best!

    It’s Choco-Love week on my blog! First, I did detailed research into its history, health benefits and health concerns, to discern how it fits on a healing diet. Then, I shared my recipe for homemade chocolate with natural flavor infusions. I gotta say, that was the most fun recipe testing I’ve done in a while! Have a wonderful week, and thanks for hosting again!
