Superfood Sunday Blog Carnival--February 5, 2012


Welcome to Superfood Sunday Blog Carnival.  This will be the very first edition, and I'm starting it on Superbowl Sunday because I live in Indianapolis, and we are hosting our very first Superbowl, and the city is bathed in a bit of a festive frenzy at the moment. 

Going with the Superbowl Sunday theme, I decided to start Superfood Sunday, a blog carnival focusing on recipes featuring superfoods fit for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. There are a couple of rules, so be certain to read through them before posting so I won't have to delete the link.

1.  Keep the ingredients nourishing. If you want the complete lowdown, visit the diet page, but a quick synopsis requires your recipes to use whole grains, meats, legumes, beans, unrefined salt, and sugars. Stay away from processed foods (no fake foods, margarine, vegetable oils, processed sugar, etc.) 

2. Link back to the carnival. This is common carnival courtesy. When I was new to blog carnivals, I didn't know how to link back to the carnival. Your blog should have a link button on the posting page, and you can add a simple link at the bottom of your post stating this is a blog you are linking your post up with.  

3. Leave comments. I read all of my comments, and visitors tend to as well. Leave an interesting comment about your piece and a link back to the post, and that will send more traffic your way. Don't have a blog?  Comments are a great way to share your own pregnancy and breastfeeding superfood tips, and I would love to read them.

4. Feel free to follow me. This is by no means a requirement, but I love to see who is interested in keeping up with my natural pregnancy and breastfeeding site!!

Hi Kristi, I was having trouble leaving a comment earlier, but thought I'd try again. I linked up my Chicken Stock recipe. I wanted to put more in the title, but I was limited to only 15 characters? Anyway, thanks for hosting and have a great week!

Kristi, Thanks for hosting! I shared baked custard made with coconut milk, which is so good for anyone, but especially moms and children. In the recipe I use coconut milk, but you can also use whole milk or cream or a combination of both. I just love finding another way to incorporate coconut milk into our diets. Have a great week!

Thanks for hosting! I shared a Hot Garlic-Ginger Lemonade recipe. It’s a wonderful natural remedy for colds and flu. It’s a great immune booster too. Thanks again. ~ Emily @ Recipes to Nourish
