This week’s featured posts are all focused on the act of BUYING whole/real foods. Where do you purchase your foods? Regular supermarket, Whole Foods, Co-op, farmer’s market, the farm, online or a combination of several? Probably many of us are buying from several options. I like these featured posts because they all focus on some unconventional ways to view buying whole foods or shocking details about some places where you might not expect to find GMO’s. If you missed any of the posts from last week, be sure to check them out here.
SURPRISE! Kathy @Grannies Vital Vittles has gone on a shopping spree at Walmart in search of real food. I know there are many of you that don’t have access to decent local farmers and live essentially in a food desert. Don’t feel bad if you need to shop at Walmart for your food. There really are some real food options as Kathy has shown us!
A new poster from @daia sol gaia posted this video on the deceptive marketing of Whole Foods on GMO products in their store. I was under no false pretense that they didn’t have GMO’s however it is interesting that they are not donating money to help support PROP 37 in CA. Interesting . . . . .
Katie @This Chick Cooks always has great recipes and frugal tips. Last week she showed us how to buy whole foods while on a budget. Thanks Katie!

**NEW RULE: Due to the fact that we are trying to promote real, whole foods on our blog carnival, we are no longer allowing posts that LINK DIRECTLY to another blog carnival. This is because we have noticed that various blog carnivals have different criteria for linking that may not line up with what we at Real Food Freaks consider real food. To keep the integrity of our mission, please do not link up your link ups.
**Secondly, (this is not a new rule but a reiteration of an old rule) — if you use wheat or grains of any type they must be soaked, sprouted or fermented directly in the instructions of how to make the recipe. We have been a little lax in pulling down posts that do not comply, but unfortunately we are getting more and more of these types of posts. We don’t want to pull any links down, so if you need an explanation see this post on grains.
1. Everyone who posts must place a link back to this blog on the post they are linking (not your home page or other page). Freaky Friday is about sharing what you have done as well as others. You will be removed if you don’t link back.
2. REAL FOOD only! No processed (this means refined sugars too), canned, margarine, hydrogenated vegetable oils, unfermented soy, etc. If using grains they must be PROPERLY prepared (soaked, sprouted, or fermented). Also, please be aware that we will not allow non-homeopathic, store or pharmaceutical type products being promoted here (especially related to skin care or health). Naturally derived ingredients only please.
3. Please, no product promos! Feel free to post giveaways here, but if you are selling a product or gain from the sale of any item please do not post it here.
4. Please help us promote the link up with a Retweet and / or a Facebook link to this page and any sites you visit! This benefits EVERYONE! Be sure to comment on others posts as well and let the bloggers know you were there.
5. Please leave a brief comment about your post. If this is your first time commenting on our blog or are posting a link, you will have to wait to be moderated before your link shows up.
If you don’t have a blog we still want to hear from you! Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.
