REAL Food Friday LINKUP is LIVE!

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 organic gardening and posts. Thank you for sharing!

It's been one of those crazy weeks/months (year)!  I feel like I've been steady "on-the-go" for the last 60+ days...Not that I'm complaining!
I just announced the NEW line Mary's Herbal Organix now available at Mary's Heirloom Seeds.  These organic, herbal tinctures have taken months to make!

Also,  I'm offering limited Ad Space now at Back to the Basics.  
We are GROWING and I'd like YOU to grow with us!
On the the PARTY!  We're your hosts
Lydia @ Lydia's Flexitarian Kitchen 
Janine @ My Lamp is Full

and me...Mary @ Back to the Basics and Mary's Kitchen

I'M SKIPPING THE FEATURES TONIGHT...There's a HUGE Heirloom Seed Sale going on at Mary's Heirloom Seeds.

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.
