We had such a great week of helpful posts I have to say it was very challenging to pick just a few. Every week I struggle with this and as a result I choose some kind of theme (in my head at least) to help me get through the selection process. This week I decided to select a few posts that might help those struggling with maintaining healthy eating habits or even just getting on board.
If you do nothing else, eating in can make a huge difference in your health (and budget). Here are 6 reasons to start eating in more often.
If you’ve been on the fence about giving up your diet drinks, give this a read and stop the madness.
Those of you who are long time readers know I have a love affair with my butcher who provides us with our meat. It’s nice to buy confidently knowing it is free of chemicals, hormones, antibiotics, and that it’s free run or grass fed. It’s a pretty good feeling. Find out why in this post.
Anyone who has started on some kind of journey with their health knows that if you want the changes to last, take it slow and steady. Here’s a great post with links on baby steps to healthier eating and healthier living.

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. 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!
