Keep It Real Thursdays – Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you to everyone who shared last week and Happy Thanksgiving to those in the US!

Here are a few highlights from some wonderful whole food blogs. I hope you’ll pay them a visit, since these highlights, as you may expect, are only the tip of the iceberg.

Also, quick reminder that The Whole Food Revelation and The Whole Food Jump Start will be on a special 24 hour Black Friday sale tomorrow, so keep your eye out for an email from us with the details!

Tessa the Domestic Diva

Paleo and Vegan Pumpkin Ice Cream

Tessa is brilliant when it comes to developing recipes that are mostly allergy free. Her site has dairy free, gluten free and corn. She uses egg and soy sparingly. So if you’re feeling challenged because you have some of these allergies, it’s a great place to go.

Gluten Free Cat

Raw Soaked Granola

Everything Heather does is so health conscious and delicious. You’ll be bound to love this recipe.

20 Something Allergies

Mustard Braised Rabbit

I freakin’ love rabbit. LOVE IT. Thanks for the awesome recipe Jennifer.

The Spinach Spot

Homemade Gift Idea, Gingerbread Granola

Though this is not the only granola I decided to feature here, this one has a fun gingerbread flavor that is lots of fun.

Plus Other Good Stuff

How to Soak Cashews and Why You Want To

If you’re new to soaking nuts, this is a great intro to why you should and how simple it really is.

The Rules:

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. 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! 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!

    Hi and
    thanks for hosting! I’m linking up a recipe for Asian Meatballs. They’re an easy finger food, go great with dipping
    sauce, and are perfect added to broth for a quick soup.

    Have a great day!
