Submit Your Links and Lunchboxes to The Real Food Lunchbox Carnival!

Woo hoo! The time has come for you to submit links to your blog post from the past week featuring a meal/(s) or snack/(s) that you packed for yourself or your loved ones. The linky will be open from right now through 3 p.m. Sunday afternoon (giving y'all a little extra time since I'm late getting this up...). Now's the time to get your linking up groove on!

Also, in case of technical difficulties, please bear with me AND shoot me an email - this carnival series is my first time using this linky partner, so I'm not certain of what to expect.

A reminder of The Real Food Lunchbox Carnival Guidelines:
  • RealFoodLunchboxCarnivalAtPrimalKitchen
    Voila! The Real Food Lunchbox Carnival logo.
    Please be sure that when you add it,
    it links back to this carnival's label page!
    Feature The Real Food Lunchbox Carnival logo in your post  - and your logo should link back to that the Real Food Lunchbox Carnival label page, so that your readers can come to read the rest of the carnival for fresh inspiration, too!

    Grab the logo JPG right now if you like for your posts. It's available on Flickr; click the logo on the right and you will be able to pick up embeddable HTML under the "Share" tab.

  • Please link to your individual packed meal's post using a permalink, NOT a link to your blog's home page.

  • One linked post submitted per blog per week.

  • The packed/assembled meal or snack that you've chosen to link/feature for this carnival should be primal / paleo friendly. To simplify: no grains or refined sugars should take the spotlight in your linked/featured post, please!

  • No recipes-only posts, please. The goal is to showcase how you've put together your packed meals and snacks! If a recipe is involved but still shows the end product of your packed/assembled meal or snack, that is OK.

  • Your packed/assembled meal can be breakfast, lunch, dinner, or even a snack.

  • When you link, please use this format to tell us what you've packed, and who you are!
    Subject (Blogger or Blog Name)

    Sample Format (as far as I know these blogs are fictitious):

    Chicken with Sweet Potato Fries and Dip! (Cro-Magnon)
    Grain-Free Breakfast Burrito On the Go (Grokerella)
    Paleo PB&J (Cave Kid at Heart)

These are just tips, not mandatory:
  • A picture or pictures help your readers' frame of reference bigtime. A list of foods is kind of dry, but a close up or a few of your packed meal or snack is much likelier to capture readers' imagination. Plus, you get to add the picture's thumbnail to the linky below.

  • Make it fun! Add some discussion in your post as to the meal's contents, or even explore whether the meal was a hit or a miss. (Yes, lunchbox fails are very much welcomed and even celebrated! Lessons learned make for great commiserative reading and fyi.)

♥ Thanks so much for submitting a link! It makes my heart sing. :) 

Let me know if you have questions, comments, suggestions for the carnival! You can also email me at primalkitchen at gmail dot com.

  1. Hi there! I can't figure out how to submit a link. I mean - where to submit a link. Do I put it in the comment? is there a blogcarnival page associated with this carnival? Help me out!
