Festival of Food Call For Submission: Real Raw Recipes

Welcome to the April Festival of Food Carnival, hosted by Diary of a First Child and Hybrid Rasta Mama. This monthly carnival will aim to bring together seasonal recipes, healthy food, and a diversity of flavors and techniques.

Here are the submission details for April 2013

Theme: Real Raw Recipes

Have you ever tried Raw Food? Do you have a favorite recipe? Or is this something new you could consider for your family? Raw Food involves substituting ingredients, for example courgette/zucchini for spaghetti, or cashew nuts for cream cheese. If you’ve found a favorite recipe, we’d love for you to share it with us!

We prefer recipes with low sugar or natural sweeteners and as few processed ingredients as possible. However, we understand that healthy differs for every family, so please share your favorite.

There are two ways you can participate:

EITHER: Link up your old post on the carnival day, or submit a new post for the carnival!

**Please note, by participating or linking up you are agreeing to visit and comment on at least two other submissions**

Deadline: 4 April 2013 : Fill out the webform below and email your submission to us by 11:59 p.m. GMT at festivaloffoodcarnival [at]

Carnival date: Wednesday 10 April . Before you post, we will send you an email with a little blurb in html to paste into your submission that will introduce the carnival. You will publish your post on Wednesday 11 April. We’ll include full instructions in the email we send before the posting date.

Please do: Write well. Write on topic. If you’re using very uncommon ingredients, write something about them so your readers learn something new, or at least link to some information of them.

Please don’t: Please don’t use profanity of the sort that might be offensive to more sensitive readers or their children. Please don’t submit irrelevant posts.

Editors’ rights: We reserve the right to edit your piece or suggest edits to you. We reserve the right to courteously reject any submissions that are inappropriate for the carnival. Please also note that since there are two co-hosts on different schedules and conferring over email, our personal response to your submission might seem delayed. Don’t be alarmed. We also reserve the right to impose consequences if the responsibilities of the carnival are not fulfilled by the participants.

If you have questions: Please leave a comment or contact us at diaryofafirstchild [at] and hybridrastamama [at]

Links to tutorials: Lauren, Dionna, and Dionna’s husband, Tom, from the Natural Parents Network have written several tutorials about how to schedule posts in advance, how to determine post URLs in advance, how to edit HTML — all for both WordPress and Blogger users. For these tutorials and more, please see this handy summary post at
