Keep It Real Thursdays – A Salute To Healthy Real Food

 

Welcome To Keep It Real Thursdays!

I’m thinking of trying something new.

I’d like to try weekly highlight of some of the fabulous healthy real food that gets shared here every week. With over 50 great recipes, articles and the fabulous people behind them, it’s a shame not to spend some time recognizing these talented people. Don’t you think? It’s a crying shame really.

So I’m doing something new. Instead of creating something for you every Thursday (you’re probably tired of me anyway), we’ll take some time appreciating some of the hard work that goes into making Keep It Real Thursdays possible.

Today I’m going to highlight some of  the fun recipes that were shared last week in case you missed them. Some of these blogs I’ve been visiting for years, others are newer to me. All are worth visiting!

From Jeanette’s Healthy Living:

From Fresh4Five:

From The Not So Super Mama:

Keep It Real Thursday

Welcome to Keep It Real Thursday!

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. Simple linky etiquette. This allows your readers to find other posts that may help them on their journey.

3. If you’re sharing recipes, the only requirement is that the ingredient list 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 Monday Mania, My Meatless Monday, Slightly Indulgent Tuesday, Tasty Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Real Food Wednesday, Whole Foods Wednesday, Cast Party Wednesday, Allergy Free Wednesday, What’s Cooking Wednesday, Simple Lives Thursday, and Full Plate Thursday, and Foodie Friday.

    Hi Everyone,
    This week I’m sharing a recipe for Kimchi. It is packed with enzymes and probiotics for great digestive health. It’s also delicious and compliments just about anything you eat it with. I use it instead of coleslaw. It makes a refreshing summer salad. Hope you all enjoy!!
