Fresh Bites Friday is a weekly real food blog carnival and recipe share. We invite you to share recipes that use REAL FOOD ingredients as well as articles and blog posts about the real foods lifestyle and natural health.

There are many members of the Real Food Movement and they are all welcome here. Traditional foodies, slow foodies, Primal and Paleo eaters, raw foodists and the newbies who are just starting to get into local, organic, sustainable eats- let’s connect! Unite! Share!

Fresh Bites Friday is about sharing the ways that we vote with our dollars each and every day.

We welcome:

  • Real Food Recipes
  • Healthy Lifestyle Tips and Advice
  • Your Personal Real Food Story
  • Natural Health- Remedies, Tips, etc.
  • Inspirational and Motivational Posts

and more….

If it’s real, it’s all good. We do ask that you please not link to giveaways, promotions or contests or promote sponsors or ads in the post.

Guidelines for participating:

1. Please use ONLY real food ingredients (no box mixes or other processed foods). Posts not using real food may be removed.

2. Please post a link on your blog post linking back to this carnival. This helps everyone! Facebooking and Tweeting about the carnival does too- this is encouraged! (use hashtag #freshbitesfriday or #freshbitesfri)

3. Remember to post the URL of your actual blog post and NOT just your blog’s URL.

4. Please add a comment after you post your link telling us about what you’ve shared.

The linky will be open starting Thursday nights at 9pm (EST) and will close Monday nights at 9pm (EST) so if you miss posting on Friday, no worries, come over the weekend!

I’m sharing my Tomato Vegetable Soup and my Energy Trail Mix, and letting everyone know about Summer Salad Sundays that will run in place of Sunday Night Soup Night over summer. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

Yes, it’s getting to be salad season! Thanks, Debbie!

Happy Weekend! Weekends have totally different connotations for now with the kids out of school and lack of structure, they’re not quite as relaxing as they used to be! I stopped by to share a coconut butter post:
and a healthy treat: Sunbutter Blondies:

Thank you for hosting and letting us all share.


Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Thanks so much for sharing, Tessa! :)

Thanks for hosting! I am sharing some homemade fermented chickpea “cheese” and banana-cream filled frozen yogurt cups.


Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Thanks for sharing, Allison!


Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots June 1, 2012 at 11:55 am

This week I am sharing two posts that I think are very important:

Ethical Omnivorism: Another Name for Real Foodie–this post looks into the ethics behind eating happy animals. And how we overlap with veganism!

Think Saturated Fat and Cholesterol Will Give You Heart Disease? Think Again.: the name says it all. Come over and learn the happy truth!


Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Absolutely great on both counts! :) Thanks, Kendahl.

Good morning/afternoon – what a late linker I am today!

For this week’s link up I’ve decided to submit my contribution to the Secret Recipe Club – are you a participant?

My contribution: Pan seared duck breast salad with fruit and toasted walnuts. Cooking times may vary depending on the size of your breasts. Mine took a while… Story of my life.

Oh yeah – and i’ve included a second link this week too for our CSA Week #13. We got a wowza Spring of a box! …and I need help. I’m on pause! PAUSE!


Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:32 pm

I’m going to check that out for sure! And we are real duck fans over here…I’m making one tomorrow actually and doing a cider glaze. Soooo tasty!


Rachel @ Rediscovering the Kitchen June 2, 2012 at 2:02 am

Hello! Thank you for hosting this.

I think this is my first time sharing here, and it is a recipe for making your own coconut milk;
A little effort but so worth it!


Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:32 pm

Welcome, Rachel! Glad you’ve joined us. Love coconut milk and homemade IS so worth it!


Emily @ Holistic Kid June 4, 2012 at 8:53 pm

Hi and thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing my recipe for Old Fashioned Root Beer. This is a simple, beautiful recipe for a summertime favorite.



Amy June 11, 2012 at 11:31 pm

I simply must check that out! Thanks, Emily!!
