This week we’re doing things a little different. What can I say, I love to keep you on your toes!
This week I’m writing a guest post for Katie at This Chick Cooks. If you’re not familiar with her site, you’ll definitely want to go check it out. You’ll love her down to earth nature and I think so many of us can relate to her story.
5 years ago, she followed the standard North American food pyramid. She thought she ate pretty healthy. Tired of feeling run down and tired, she did what most of us do. She went to the doctor. Of course they said nothing was wrong with her…probably in her head. However she new better. She cut out white flour and white sugar and focused on eating more whole foods. She now feels great and has her energy back. Her blog is her journey through whole foods. I hope you’ll join her.
If you want to get your hands on some Layered Chocolate Maple Walnut Fudge head over to Katie’s. It’s a quick, healthy version of fudge that doesn’t need candy thermometers or sugar. In fact it’s a no heat required type of recipe made with all natural ingredients.
One More Thing This Week
We’ve changed some things with the Linky Tool for weekly submissions to the Keep It Real Community. Though it was suggested you add a back link to THIS post in YOUR post, it will now be required. Copy and paste the link in the address bar above and add it to your site before trying to link it here. Otherwise the linky tool will give you an error message. If you have any questions about how to do that, just send me an email and I can walk you through it. Thanks everyone for the support and your involvement in Keep It Real Thursdays!
Welcome to Keep It Real Thursday!
1. Introduce yourself, your blog, and what you’re about in the comment section and a small blurb about what you’re sharing. This way people can get to know you a little bit right off the hop and hopefully follow you as well.
2. Be sure to add a link in your post back to this post otherwise the linky tool will give you an error message. This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.
3. If you’re sharing recipes,the ingredient list must be comprised of real food only, that means non-processed food items. That being said, we are all in different places on our real food journey, some more advanced than others. I invite all of you to share, no matter where you are on your journey, but I ask you to stay mindful when sharing your recipes that this is a whole (real) food blog. This means, no ingredient lists that include edible oil products (velveeta, frozen whip topping), protein powders, ketchup, white flour, margarine or white and brown sugar.
4. Less of a rule but more a suggestion: Retweet, Stumble, or Pin this post so EVERYONE gets more exposure and traffic. It’s win-win for everyone.
Don’t have a blog? That’s ok, we’d still love to hear from you. Write your recipes or tips in the comment section so we can get to know you too!
Now it’s your turn to share your whole food recipes and ideas!
I’m sharing this with Mangia Monday, Monday Mania, My Meatless Monday, Slightly Indulgent Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Whole Foods Wednesday, Cast Party Wednesday, Allergy Free Wednesday, The Tasty Alternative, Real Food Wednesday, Simple Lives Thursday, Full Plate Thursday, and Foodie Friday.
