It’s that time of the week when real foodies come together for a food festival! Fat Tuesday is the official end of Mardi Gras and here at Real Food Forager we are having our own Fat Tuesday Forager Festival! Every Tuesday come join in this Real Food Free For All! Today it’s the REAL THING so link up your best posts!

Link up your great real food recipes, natural remedies, posts, articles and book reviews about real food, food politics, green living and our food supply.

Special diet recipes are welcome such as SCD, GAPS, gluten free, dairy free, sugar-free, Paleo, Primal, all are welcome as long as they involve REAL FOOD. Please feel free to post your recipe in the comments section if you are not a blogger.

Giveaways are welcome as long as they involve only real food items or cool kitchen tools. Pretty much anything goes — it’s party time!

The Rules are simple:

1 — No artificial ingredients. Nothing commercially canned, packaged or processed. No fake foods. No soy or tofu, no artificial sweeteners like Splenda, no bad fats like margarine, soybean or corn oil. You get the idea.

2 — Provide a link back to this post on your site (a common courtesy).

3 — Please do not make me delete any non real food linkups. Please don’t link them here. This is a place for real food recipes and issues.

4 — Please link the URL of your actual blog post and not your blog’s home page.

5 — Be kind and come back and leave a comment after linking up. And check out some of the links. There is a wealth of knowledge here.

Be sure to visit on Sunday for Sunday Snippets, a weekly post that features recipes and articles from the previous Fat Tuesday. The next feature could be yours so be sure to check back!

Hi Jill, I posted 4 this week (and I think Leslie has some more). I have an article on the locavore movement, Cherry almond granola recipe, squash porridge recipe, and the republication of your coconut crepes — which are super delicious!


2 Vicky February 27, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Hi! This week I’ve shared my Post about roasting parsnips and a Beetroot, Apple, Carrot and Walnut Salad recipe to celebrate the unusual warm weather we’re experiencing in the UK at the moment. Thank you for hosting!


3 Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat February 27, 2012 at 9:07 pm

My post this week is about the school lunch incident that outraged so many. The government is trying to make sure that all school children eat the same kind of lunch to ensure good nutrition, but one size never fits all.

When It Comes to Food, “One Size Fits All” Fits Nobody


4 Leslie @ Real Food Freaks February 27, 2012 at 9:09 pm

Hey Jill,
Following Jen with recipes for stuffed cube steak and maple roasted veggies w/ bacon and cayenne. Also, a “round up” of sorts. Thanks!


5 Starlene February 27, 2012 at 9:18 pm

Hi Jill, thanks for hosting! I’ve included my Coconut Almond Candy Clusters. This was a happy mistake – one of my “failures” when trying to make the Coconut Pecan Frosting. :-)


6 Susan February 27, 2012 at 9:31 pm

Pastured poultry is nutrient dense but can be tough. Brining it results in a moist and tender bird.


7 Katie February 27, 2012 at 9:33 pm

Thanks for hosting.

I shared a delicious and hearty vegetable minestrone and some simple and tasty kale chips.


8 Amber February 27, 2012 at 9:44 pm

Happy Tuesday,

This week I am sharing a very sweet, decadent, vegan, cane-sugar free treat that will seriously knock your socks off! Coffee flavored, maple sweetened coconut whipped cream (or mousse). Everyone that has tried this claims it tastes like a mousse or pudding, but it can also be used as a whipped cream or icing for cake/cupcakes.

It’s sooo good!

Have a great week.

Be Well,


9 Amber February 27, 2012 at 9:50 pm

Oh, and I also shared some super easy marinara sauce and a funny video!



10 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots February 27, 2012 at 9:45 pm

Inspired by my recent cold, this is my definitive guide to kicking a cold, flu, or other infection. I knocked my cold back good last week with all these remedies!



11 Judy@Savoring Today February 27, 2012 at 9:51 pm

Shared a post about heart healthy diets–great way to bring February’s Heart Month to a close. :) Thanks for hosting!

Thanks so much for hosting. I shared a Cinnamon-Thyme Tea recipe, a great natural remedy for colds, flu, sore throat, coughs, immune boosting, etc. Thanks again.



14 Joy @ The Liberated Kitchen February 27, 2012 at 9:58 pm

I shared our Menu Plans vs. Reality post. I had the best of intentions when I made my meal plan for the week, but things didn’t go as, well, planned. But it turned out ok! Even though I didn’t stick to the plan, I was still glad I had one.

Thanks for hosting, Jill!


15 Andrea (@FrSeed2Stomach) February 27, 2012 at 10:07 pm

I posted a how-to for CASHEW CREAM, my favorite vegan alternative for dairy in creamy soups. It also makes a great base for dips and desserts and is really EASY to make with 2 ingredients: raw cashews and water. I also include a bunch of recipes using Cashew Cream in the post.


16 Becky @ Pure Vitality February 27, 2012 at 10:24 pm

I have shared a post about how to do a healthy pantry and kitchen makeover. I’ve created an eBook that will guide you through a complete kitchen and
pantry makeover, which can be downloaded for FREE on my website. It’s kinda like
taking a personal tour of my kitchen and pantry! It is really good for newbies,
but you may find tips there as well.



17 Jessica February 27, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Love all the fun ideas! I posted my quick and easy homemade almond milk.



18 Tessa@The Domestic Diva February 27, 2012 at 10:45 pm

Thanks for the chance to share again! I shared some really easy mayo and Vietnamese Salad Rolls, a personal favorite!

Thank you for hosting this link-up. Wow! There are so many submissions already, and its only been Tuesday for a few hours. I shared Quinoa Pudding, an old-fashioned slow-cooked pudding with nutmeg, cinnamon and raisins.

For Occupy Our Food Supply Day of Blogger Action, I linked to a post called ‘I Dedicate my Kitchen.”


23 Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network February 28, 2012 at 8:10 am

Hi Jill! I put up a post about babywearing, a super healthy protein bar recipe perfect for teen”s lunch boxes or as a well deserved snack after a work-out. I also put up best natural cold remedy foods as we all know someone who has the snuffles and finaly, 3 tried and tested recipes for soothing baby’s butt. One is a barrier cream, the second, a baby wipe solution and the third, a healing salve along with a short tutorial on how to make calendula oil . Those of you who have made my healing salve or lip balms will probably have most of the ingredients to hand already!
Some of you may know I also host a linky,-although still in its early days- and am seeking even more wonderful creative women to come and share their beautiful posts there too! It’s called Seasonal Celebration and can be found at Natural Mothers Network http://naturalmothersnetwork.com

26 Christine February 28, 2012 at 11:25 am

Hi Jill,

This week I am sharing all about the health benefits of coffee enemas! That’s about the only good use for coffee I can think of!


27 Laurie February 28, 2012 at 11:28 am

Thanks for hosting, Jill!

Today I linked up a recipe for chocolate raspberry granola cookies that are loaded with healthy fat and other nourishing ingredients, and are very easy to make gluten free as well: http://www.commonsensehome.com/chocolate-raspberry-granola-cookies/

I just posted a super easy cheese recipe last night, and will be adding a chia-blueberry porridge recipe tonight, so recipe seekers may want to take a peek around the site.

Have a wonderful week!

Thanks for hosting! I shared a post on an sardines — their nutrient content, how to shop for them, and cooking ideas.


36 SAHMmy Says February 29, 2012 at 12:27 pm

Thanks for hosting! Not sure how strict the “no commercially packaged” rule is – please feel free to swap fresh organic strawberries for the frozen org. strawberries noted in my recipe (I can’t get fresh org. strawberries locally right now!)


37 Dawn @ Small Footprint Family February 29, 2012 at 4:01 pm

This week I’ve posted on 13 Ways to Create a Sustainable Food System. Consumer demand is simply not enough to stop the destruction of our planet and our health by industrial agriculture. Here’s a more comprehensive approach.



38 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots March 1, 2012 at 1:13 pm

I am also sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post, all about how to make yogurt. Learn how to work with raw milk to make raw yogurt, as well as how to make 24-hour GAPS yogurt that is completely free of lactose from the culturing process.



39 Shelley Alexander March 1, 2012 at 10:36 pm

Hi Jill, Thanks for hosting. I shared a recipe for braised spicy and sweet red cabbage.
