REAL Food Friday #31 with a GIVEAWAY!

Hello and Welcome to REAL Food Friday!
I'd like to thank all of the conscious bloggers who followed the guidelines and 
shared REAL FOOD recipes and posts. Thank you for sharing!

Are you growing your own veggies this year?
We'd like to hear from YOU!  Please feel free to share your organic, non-GMO gardening posts here @ Real Food Friday! 
Check out my 2014 Planting Guide and APRIL Seed Planting Guide

We have a GIVEAWAY today!

My name is Janine Thompson, dōTERRA wellness advocate and blogger at My Lamp is Full. I am excited to offer an amazing treasure, a gift from the earth. One of the most popular oils in our house is dōTERRA Deep Blue! It was all my husband requested for Christmas. It is a treasure for sore muscles, sprains and bruises, and joint pain. To help you ease your pain, both in your muscles and in your budget, I am offering a free Deep Blue rub and 5 ml Deep Blue oil, a value of $81.67. For my worst pain, I like to put a drop of the oil, followed by a dab of the cream. Ahh, beautiful deep relief.

 dōTERRA is committed to bringing you the highest quality essential oils. It is the largest essential oils company in the world and for good reason. The quality surpasses all others. All oils are sourced indigenously where local farmers lovingly grow the very best plants and distill with care. Each individual batch undergoes extensive testing and if it doesn't come back free from pesticides, synthetics and impurities, it does not get bottled!
You don't have to wait to get a great deal on these therapeutic grade essential oils, sign up today for a wholesale account (click join on the top right corner) to get 25% off retail and earn free product. Or become a wellness advocate yourself and share with others to get dōTERRA for free.
Good luck! Can't wait to share this Deep Blue with one of you!!

In case you missed "What is Real Food" here's a recap...
I know "Real" food may not seem like as much fun as the sugary, chemically, DIY recipes out there on the internet.  This is why REAL Food Friday is so unique.  This is the place to share your unprocessed, gmo-free, locally grown and/or fair trade posts.
We are trying to make a difference 1 recipe at a time!
If your post includes items like *margarine, *granulated sugar, *food dye, packaged baking mixed with ingredients that you cannot pronounce (betty crocker, duncan hines, pillsbury) then it WILL be deleted.  These are garbage ingredients.  Sorry...Not real food.

Here's a great reference from Food Myths:
Do you ever think about how far the food you eat travels?  Who grew it?  Who picked it? How much in processing it's been through before you took a bite? Real Food is:
-Supports fair farmworker wages
-GMO Free
-Little to no processing/processed ingredients
-Supports local markets/vendors and isn't transported long distances to get to my plate
-Honors fair trade principles when I buy from othr regions
-Meat and dairy should be humanely raised and on real food themselves-Not genetically engineered feed, drugs, hormones and antibiotics.

Link up your Real Food posts!  Processed and "junk food" posts will be deleted.
The party runs from Thursday at 7pm EST through Monday at Noon.
Please follow your hosts and consider adding the Real Food Friday button.
