Superfood Sunday, 3rd Edition, March 11, 2012

Welcome to the third edition of Superfood Sunday Blog Carnival.  I started it on Superbowl Sunday 2012 because I live in Indianapolis, and we hosted our very first Superbowl, and the city was bathed in a bit of a festive frenzy at that 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. Follow this site, like it, pin it on pinterest... 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!!

I shared Taco Salad that works for our gluten-free, GAPS diet. It's a favorite in our house for how fast & nutritious it is. Another big point in its favor is that the kids can make it for themselves :)

This week our diet was put to the test - we went to our pediatric endocrinologist's dietitian. We were happy to learn that even without grains, our diet has a great balance of carbs, fat, and protein!

Thanks for hosting! I shared a Chocolate Smoothie w/ Herbal Tea Infusion recipe (I LOVED drinking this tea during my pregnancy). It’s really yummy and a great way to get all of those readily available vitamins and minerals from the infusion. Thanks again!

Thanks for hosting! Great link party.

This week I am sharing a fun twist on traditional hummus. It's a SCD friendly dish and super healthy. Perfect for pregnancy!

Have a great week.

Be Well,
