READ BEFORE POSTING!
We will be making this a WHEAT FREE/GRAIN FREE BLOG if we continue to get recipes that do not post soaking, sprouting, or fermenting in the recipes involving grain/wheat products. I am sorry to be such a poop about this but IT IS OUR RULE! We do not advocate for non-properly prepared wheat/grain products. PERIOD. We have many people coming to our site for tips on healthy eating and if you can not follow the rules for what we believe to be proper preparation, you will be deleted. This linky is getting too large each week for me to keep monitoring those who want to submit whatever they like without regard to our rules. Remember that this includes PASTA if it is not a white rice noodle. This week I have already DELETED about 6 recipes. There are PLENTY of food linkys that will allow you to post whatever you like, just not this one as we have specific criteria.
For the record — WHEAT/GRAINS are FINE so long as you post the proper preparation. If you do not know what this preparation involves, please do not post wheat/grain products here. Or if you want to learn more read this post regarding wheat and grain prep. We follow a WAPF guideline for grain prep.
We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving holiday! We’re sure you have some wonderful holiday posts for us! We can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to this week. If you didn’t visit last week’s Freaky Friday stop by there too, click here to visit.
I think this is one of the best recipes that I have seen for eggnog to date! Ok, I have to admit that I love that I can add a little bourbon to this nog! I think that takes this recipe to another whole level. Thanks Renee @The Simple Moms for sharing!
Have I mentioned what I sucker I am for gardening posts? Really . . . anytime of the year and possibly even more so when it is the DEAD of winter (because I am thinking about getting out in the dirt and sunshine again!) I love this idea by Susan @Learning and Yearning for organizing seeds. Mine are quite a mess!
On the last Freaky Friday I featured a post regarding some potential warnings for cast iron cookware. But Kathy @Granny’s Vital Vittles offers some other benefits of cast iron cookware. I love that both posts were thought-provoking and make me want to investigate a little more.
OTHER GREAT TIPS AND RECIPES
POSTS THAT DO FOLLOW THE RULES:
- Real Food recipes
- Homeopathic or natural remedies
- Homesteading ideas
- Real Food activism
- Survival skills
- LINK BACK to this page, plus leave a comment because it helps give you more link exposure with search engines. If you don’t link back YOU WILL BE DELETED
POSTS THAT DON’T FOLLOW THE RULES
- Include refined sugars (brown sugar or white or agave — instead choose honey, pure maple syrup, sucanat, real stevia — but links to fake stevia will cause your post to get deleted) For the record, we are not really comfortable with xylitol, but will permit it for now on the linky. This may change in the future.
- Grain flours that are NOT properly prepared by soaking, sprouting, fermenting – we also prefer recipes where the legumes and nuts are also properly soaked. (see this post on grains)
- Unfermented soy products – fermented soy sauce, miso, tempeh, natto ok but will likely not be posted to Pinterest
- Hydrogenated vegetable oils, canola oil, margarine, crisco type shortening, or canned and packaged foods.
- Overtly advertising products in which the main goal of the post is to sell something that you profit on. (links in post to affiliates ok)
- Post links to other blog carnivals
If you don’t have a blog we still want to hear from you! Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.
