Real Food Wednesday 9/11/2013


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 again! A lot of people are intimidated by the idea of eating organ meat, so I created a recipe for beginners. It includes chicken livers (mild in flavor, high in nutrition) with a delicious cauliflower rice.

    Hi again! I left a recipe for Fava Bean Hummus (#40) and a story about Fructose Malabsorption and Sweet Onions that might interest people who have strange GI symptoms but don’t understand them all (#43).

    Thanks again for hosting!

    Heya! I have finally conjured up enough courage to attempt a gluten/grain free banana bread that is not spongy or dry! :) I am linking my banana bread up and I hope ya’ll with all enjoy it! :D

    Oh, I also shared post #50: What Causes FPIES?

    I know it’s a rare disease that my son has, but I believe the causes of it are exactly what you are rallying against on your blog: GMO’s and unhealthy living. So I thought you and your readers might benefit from seeing yet another example of why we should keep up the good fight against those things.

    Thanks again!

    This is the first time I have linked the Real Food Wednesday bloghop, and wouldn’t you know that I would make such a glaring rookie mistake – my name rather than recipe name. Can you kindly remove/amend? I’ve popped the recipe – Lebanese Freekeh and Fig Salad – appropriately second time round. Thanks so much for the bloghop!

  7. says

    hi! I have done the same as Kellie and added MY name not the recipe name to the linky – would you be able to amend. I’ve submitted it a second time correctly – plum crumble tart

    Thanks for hosting Real Food Wednesday! What a great collection of posts you attract to this link up. This week I submitted “From Farmer’s Market to Table: Raw Marinated Shitake Mushroom Salad”. All the best, Deb
