Summer 2016 Recipe Swap and HUGE Giveaway!!!
You guys! I am so proud and excited to officially post about this HUGE collaboration I've been working on with some amazing bloggers in the paleo/holistic nutrition world. This has been a labor of love since the moment the idea came to my mind. I was just starting out blogging, and although social media is a major way that I communicate with followers and other professionals in my realm, I felt like I was lacking some deeper connection to others in the field. I put out a call for other "new" paleo/holistic bloggers who would be interested in participating in a group collaboration project, and the response I got was phenomenal! Through this process I've found 5 other intelligent, passionate women who care about food as nourishment and really desire to share that passion with the world! What we're doing is a recipe swap, which allows us to be paired up with one other blogger. Through that pairing we developed a special summertime recipe just for YOU! But, instead of sharing that on my own personal site, my recipe will be available on my blogger buddy's website EXCLUSIVELY! It's been amazing, and so much fun to get creative in the kitchen to come up with something tasty, fresh and amazing.
The following ladies are all of our lovely participants (including myself), and I encourage you to check out their sites for more holistic nutrition and lifestyle tips, they're a wealth of information!
