Keep It Real Thursdays: Roasted Chicken, Grain Free Bread & Getting Kids To Eat Veggies

Thank you to everyone who shared last week!

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.

Perfect Roast Chicken

A quintessential beginners must “know how.” Roast Chicken not only is the key to the yummiest and healthiest chicken stock, but also the beginning of countless quick and easy dinners. If you’re single, Roast Chicken is supposed to be THE meal to land a husband. I don’t know if that’s true, but it’s what I hear.

The Best and Easiest Grain Free Quick Bread

If you’re newer to grain free or gluten free baking, you must know it’s not the easiest thing in the world. The recipes always look complicated, the results, less then spectacular. It’s great to find go to recipes you can rely on to turn out.

How Roasting Veggies Can Help Your Family Overcome Some Veggie Hurdles

I know this to be true. It works like a charm in our house. If I roast a tray of cauliflower or broccoli and leave it out on the counter (on purpose of course), the entire tray is gone by supper. It not only makes a great side dish for dinner but a fabulous snack!

Raw Chocolate Crunch Cookies

Doesn’t this photo make you want to run out and buy a dehydrator like “ASAP”? They look perfectly healthy and chocolatey. What could be better!

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 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!

I’m sharing this with Mangia Monday, Monday Mania, My Meatless MondaySlightly Indulgent Tuesday, Tasty Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Simple Lives Thursday, Full Plate Thursday, Fight Back Friday, and Foodie Friday.

    I am having a problem posting my blog that I’ve never encountered before. I keep getting a message saying that my site doesn’t have a backlink to this site. Problem is that I DO have a backlink to Beyond the Peel on each page of my blog. I have posted here in the past and have never encountered this problem. Please advise.

      My blog DOES have a back link to Keep it Real Thursdays along with the back links to other sites I’ve linked up with on the right side bar of each and every page on the site. Here is the site address to check it for yourself: I have posted to Beyond the Peel in the past, but this is the first time I’ve ever encountered this problem. I usually link my Recipes page, so if you check it out, you will see the link to your page right there on the right side bar.

        Hi Roseann, Your link is attached in a side bar, not to the post. The linky tool doesn’t recognize it there. It has to be in the post. If you look at this post, there’s a good example of what that looks like or click on any of the links currently linked up for other examples.

    Thanks for hosting, France! This week I’m sharing how to soak & dry cashews…and why in the world you’d want to. (hint: they’re delicious!)
