    Hi Kel! I AM first because the first link is YOURS and that doesnt count! lol–I am so excited to be running my first giveaway EVER online. I used to run national sweepstakes and sales promotion programs in a “previous life” but it is so much more fun to be doing it for myself and giving away a prize that I so believe in! Of course, we are talking about a spot in your Real Food for Rookies Class that has been much anticipated! Best of luck with the class enrollment. I know everyone who participates is going to get a whole lot of great information! Thanks for sharing your space with us on real food wednesday! Hugs! Alex

    Happy Real Food Wednesday, everyone. I was so super excited to find a jackpot of wild raspberries while hiking in the mountains last week. I could have stuffed myself on the spot, but instead brought them home and served them over ice cream!

    Hi Kelly!

    I just wanted to drop you a comment that I LOVE your website! I’ve always enjoyed your articles (posted from twitter or linked from other sites). I’ve slowly made changes to my diet from SAD to Real the past 2 years and 27 days ago I went 90% Primal (lost 14lbs and a rash that plagued me for 4 years!) and it’s been the greatest thing ever! Before, while trying to go slowly, I think it really hindered me from breaking free completely, I was dragging the SAD ball n chain! (Obviously this made me sad lol) But now I feel like a free girl! I no longer crave those disasterous fake foods. After I lose the remaining 80lbs of course I will relax a little, but even now I’m enjoying every minute of life!

    Thanks for your hard work and deication to spreading the Real Food Truth & Cure!

    My post discusses ideas on how to get your kids interested in eating more vegetables, along with sharing why it’s crucial to focus on good fats along with that.

    With potatoes and zucchini needing to be used before I head off to IFBC, I made a pot of Potato-Zucchini Soup, which also uses broth (either chicken or veggie will work), onion, garlic, and some seasonings. Super easy and so savory! And, it’s gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free for folks who have those intolerances.

    Thanks for hosting, Kelly! So many great links here once again.

    Hi Real Food Wednesday Gang!

    I feel behind in everything this week and my weight loss has suffered because of it. So I’m asking for advice! How do you keep healthy when you’re super busy?

    It’s a great time to use those fresh garden vegetables with a “Summer Salad”. This one has colorful beets, mixed greens, feta cheese and crispy pumpkin seeds. It’s topped with a home-made dressing and it’s a hit whenever I serve it!

    Hello, everyone! Anyone else with an abundance of eggs? Anyone looking for more variety in preparing eggs? You’re going to want to check out my post today: 15 scrumptious real food dishes using eggs! If you have ideas to add, I’m all ears. As a bonus, many of my ideas are also probiotic.

    I’m excited about the Tooth Cleaning Soap Giveaway on my blog right now because it’s the only tooth cleaner that I’m not worried about my three year old eating… or applying as chapstick by mistake! It’s made with real foods, thus it must be good for you! :)

    I came up with a super quick, raw, snack that has chocolate.

    Mix equal parts agave nectar or honey with coconut oil. Approx 1 T each. Add approx 1 tsp vanilla. Stir in cocoa powder a tsp at a time until you get the taste you like. Cut up some fruit (bananas are my favorite with this) and drizzle chocolate sauce over and stir to completely coat. Sprinkle with chopped crispy nuts. Very fast and indulgent.

    Hi! I linked to my blog post about my frustration with the food industry especially after the food recalls. It’s not just about food anymore. It’s about human rights and human safety. I’m excited to read other peoples’ posts! Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week!

    Wow, what amazing posts this week! I wish I could stay up all night reading through everyone’s!! (I vowed that I would make sleep a top priority over blogging, reading, and learning from everyone).

    This week I’m sharing my adapted version of Barefoot Contessa’s creme brulee recipe (no refined sugar) plus a dairy free variation using coconut milk.

    Thanks for hosting.

    Hi Kelly,

    This week I am sharing a recipe that I have made many times and is a hit every time. It uses up those summer zucchini and uses sprouted flour. Bet you can’t eat just one!

    Posting a little late, but my post this week is about making school food not only healthful, but also sustainable, chemical-free and ethical. An excerpt:

    I’m finally answering Ashley, way up at comment #21… (I’ve been trying to fix that “reply to” comment plugin, but noooooooo, I can’t get the stupid thing to work.)
    Ashley, I have two words for you to help with weight loss when you’re crazy busy: “plan ahead”. Do I always do that? Nope. But that’s your answer anyway. :)

    Hi Kelly,
    Thanks so much for answering me. Your advice is good advice but it sure is hard to follow! So many real food bloggers have blessed me with their encouragement and I’m so thankful to you and everyone else who has taken the time to share a piece of advice or cheer me on.
