Welcome to another week of Keep It Real Thursdays. First thing, I have some news. We’ve decided to make a few changes and as a result we won’t be hosting Keep It Real Thursdays in the future. I want to invite anyone who currently hosts a whole food link up or round up party to leave their web address below in the comment section. That way we can still partake in the fun! After all, it isn’t the end but the beginning of something new.
As part of that change, we will also be changing our posting schedule to Tuesdays for (TV Tuesdays) and Fridays. There may be some fun news on the horizon, but I’ll keep those a secret a little while longer…
Now for the last weeks highlights!
Why not end Keep It Real Thursdays the same way we do a meal? With desserts and treats. There where quite a few last week, so I wasn’t able to choose them all, but here are some highlights that you should not miss out on.
Since I’ve highlighted the Wahls Diet in some form or another in the last couple of weeks, I’d thought I’d like to finish off the Keep It Real Thursdays series by highlighting an interview. Her powerful story of healing herself of MS through food is incredible to say the least and it truly is a statement of the connection and power of food and our health. Eileen at Phoenix Helix had the opportunity to have an interview (lucky girl) with Dr. Terry Wahls, creator of the Wahls Diet. What I love about the Walhs diet is that even though she encourages eating meat and little to no grains (similar to primal or paleo diets) the real focus is on vegetables and fruit (9 cups a day). This is the part I like the most, since fruits and vegetables tend to be the focus in Vegetarian and Vegan Diets, but I believe it should be the focus in all diets, regardless of your thoughts on meat or no meat.
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!
