Welcome back to another week of Old-Fashioned Friday!

Old-Fashioned Friday is a weekly gathering place for bloggers to share their ideas, tips, discoveries, etc. about real food, natural health, and old-fashioned living. Just like the quilting bees and front-porch gatherings of the “good old days,” Old-Fashioned Friday is a spot for bloggers and readers to stop by for a visit to greet one another and to learn new things.
Each week I will be featuring the three most-viewed posts from the previous week, so make sure to check back for next week’s carnival to see if you were featured! I’ll also be pinning to my Pinterest boards as much as I can all of the posts that follow the guidelines.

Featured Posts:

Believe it or not, there was another tie this week for the most-viewed posts, so we have five featured posts this week! I think the blog carnival elves must be purposely creating these ties . . . 🙂 Anyways, here are this week’s featured posts:

Applesauce Fruit Leather by The Distracted Housewife:

Soy Is Not A Health Food by Small Footprint Family:

The Art of Thoughtful Real Food Compromise by Granny’s Vital Vittles:

Opting Out Part 2: The Doctor Of The Future is You and Your Healthcare Team by Kids+Love+Acupuncture:

Monsanto’s Free Pass by Wholesome Day:

Guidelines for Posting:

1. Keep it old-fashioned. Please link only to posts that fit in with the areas of real food and natural living. That could include: recipes, herbal remedies, holistic health, homesteading, DIY projects, household tips, food politics, gardening, etc. The possibilities are endless! Please no links to giveaways, though.

2. Real ingredients only, please. If you’re posting a recipe, please post only recipes using real, natural ingredients. Think butter instead of margarine. Lard instead of crisco. Whole eggs instead of Egg Beaters. Think back to the ingredients your grandmother or great-grandmother would have used in her made-from-scratch recipes. Everyone is at different stages in their transition to real foods, but let’s try to stay away from the boxed cake mixes and the canned frosting, ok? 🙂

3. Please update your post with a link back to this Old-Fashioned Friday post. It’s blog carnival courtesy, and it will help people to find all of the great ideas from other bloggers. Something like “This post is linked to Old-Fashioned Friday” would be perfect 🙂

4. Link to your post, not your homepage. Make sure you link to the URL of your specific post, not the home page of your blog. It will make it much easier for us all to find your post!

5. Not required, but it would be great if you would leave a comment telling us all a little bit about your post. Or, if you’re not a blogger, share your thoughts and ideas with the rest of us in the comments section! 🙂

* Note: In the place on the form that says “Name,” you want to put the name of your blog post not your own name 🙂

Ok, let’s get started!

Thank you for hosting! This is my first time here and got word of your link up through the VGN forum. :)

I'm sharing 2 posts:

1. Toxic Free DIY Mini Series: Sugar Scrub -- a recipe for an easy, affordable sugar scrub to use as an exfoliant to ensure radiant looking skin!

2. The Campaign for GE-Free Seafood -- A new campaign has launched urging supermarkets, seafood companies, chefs and restaurants all over the country to sign a petition and publicly state they will NOT purchase or sell genetically engineered salmon. There is a petition to sign as a consumer as well!

Thanks for featuring my post on the hazards of soy. This week I've posted on the dangers of canola oil and a recipe for raw buckwheat granola.

Have a great week!
