The Liebster Blog Award - sharing our wonderful blogging friends!

Thank you to my friend Lisa @ Allergy-Free Vintage Cookery, I've been tagged with the Liebster Blog Award again!  I just adore Lisa and her blog.  She's a down-to-earth mama that provides fantastic, healing meals for her family (with multiple food allergies).  Please check out her blog when you get a chance.  And you can see Lisa's other nominations here. 

Liebster is a German word for “Good Friend,” and I am so humbled that Lisa passed this award on to me.  Each recipient is supposed to pass the award to five blogs.  See below for my picks.  

If you've already been tagged by this award, don't feel pressured to create another nomination list.  I was tagged for the first time just a couple months after I started my blog.  Things are very different for me this time around, as I have so many more connections and relationships with other bloggers.  So I felt compelled to share some of my new favorite blogs, especially in the SCD community.  I can appreciate how busy we all are.  That being said, thank you for your blogs and sharing your great recipes!  

In good kindness (If it works for you at this time): 
1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog. 
3. Copy and paste the award to your blog.
4. This is a great way to spread love and goodness to other bloggers.
5. Have fun.

I'm passing this award on to these 5 fabulous blogs:

1) Kalinda @ Wheat Free Meat Free  
Kalinda serves up some awesome gluten free and vegetarian recipes.  She cooks for Mike who has Celiac Disease.  Kalinda's sister also shares gluten-free, vegetarian recipes from time to time.  Kalinda also features a weekly recipe round-up, helping us out with our weekly meal planning.  You can read more about Kalinda here. 

2) Jen @ My Big Fat Grain Free Life
Intestinal problems prompted Jen and her family to move into grain free and specific carbohydrate eating.  Recipes on her blog are free of gluten, refined sugar, soy, corn, and casein (mostly).  She's my "zoodles" gal.  I love Jen's sense of humor too.  And...she's a new mommy again (a newly adopted baby girl).  She's a busy lady, but still makes time to provide us with great recipes.  You can read more about Jen here. 

3) Danielle @ Against All Grain
Danielle's probably my closest blogging buddy.  We both live in California (not too far away from each other).  And we both fight IBD through holistic healing and diet.  Danielle's recipes are beautiful and so creative.  If you thought SCD was restrictive, you'll be blown away by her creations!  You can read more about Danielle here.   

4) Vicky @ Gluten Free, SCD and Veggie 
My SCD friend all the way in the UK.  Vicky has been a vegetarian for 30 years and raised 3 children.  In 2006 her youngest son was diagnosed with Crohn's disease.  Thanks to Vicky's dedication to healing, her son thrived on a SCD/Vegetarian diet (but now all grown up and at University and continuing this healthy lifestyle)! Vicky also highlights herbs and spices on her blog which  I LOVE.  Please check out her awesome SCD and vegetarian recipes!  You can read more about Vicky here. 

5) Megan @ MAID in Alaska  
Food allergies?  My pal Megan is your gal.  Gluten, dairy, corn, soy, potato, tomato, peanut, and (mostly) refined sugar free recipes.  Megan also shares her experience and healing journey with psoriatic arthritis.  She has an awesome bread recipe on her blog that you'll surely love, so check out her creations when you can.  Megan is such a supportive blogging friend!  You can read more about Megan's story here.   

Thanks again, Lisa, for the nomination.
