Real Food Wednesday 10/3/2012


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!

    Hi Kelly,
    Thank you for hosting a healthy link-up. This is my first time adding a recipe, so hopefully you and others enjoy it! I’m adding my 5-Ingredient Pumpkin Fudge. It’s dairy-free, gluten-free, and vegan. Have a great week! :-)

    Hi! This week I posted on the recent determination that most Alzheimer’s disease is a form of diabetes and is therefore preventable with diet. I also posted two delicious arugula recipes now that it is in season.

    This Friday, I’m hosting the first Small Footprint Fridays blog link-up! Please stop by and link-up your posts about sustainable, green living!

    This week I take my home remedy love to a new level, and have made my first tincture. Elderberry is wonderful for boosting the immune system, and by starting now you will have it ready for the start of winter. Thanks for hosting!

    I write about the connection between some of my favorite foods…. broth, organ meats and ferments. They are all the “left behind” foods… where you take what other people might think as trash or not appealing and you give them time and care and are rewarded with a tasty, nutritious, beautiful food!

    HI Kelly! Thanks for hosting! I took new pics of the Sprouted Lentil recipe – makes it look even yummier (which it is!). Sprouting lentils is super easy and nutritious and the other ingredients are a good way to use up that CSA or garden produce! enjoy!

    Today I shared a life-changing information a dietary approach to treatment of hypothyroidism and how to get off thyroid medication for good. It will be an eye opener for many of you.

    I can guarantee you that by the end of this interview with a Certified Holistic Health Coach Magdalena Wszelaki you will never look at thyroid disease and your treatment the same way as you did before.

    Here is the Part 1. The Part 2 is coming out on Thursday, 4th o October:

    I shared a recipe for vanilla extract. This is the first time I’ve participated in anything like this, and I accidentally posted the first link under my name, instead of the blog post title. (I’ll use the excuse that I’m pregnant. :) I hope Kelly will catch this and delete it for me.

    Hello Kelly,

    You are on my list of resources I give my friends who want to know “How I am Doing It.” I have lost 34 pounds since February doing nothing but eating Real Food.

    I hope I linked to RFW correctly :)
