It’s that time of the week when real foodies come together for a food festival! Fat Tuesday is the official start 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!

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!

Visit Real Food Forager tomorrow, Wednesday 1/11/12 for my Probiotic Challenge Linky. Share your fermented food and beverage recipes. It will be open all 28 days of the challenge!

Sign up for the 28 Day Probiotic Challenge here!

Hi Jill! I posted a curry mix that I made for my holiday baskets and a few uses for it. I also posted an recipe for curried goat liver (using some different spices than my curry recipe) :)


2 Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat January 9, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how eating real food, eating grassfed meat, and following the guidelines of the Weston A. Price Foundation has improved my health so much. I feel like I’m getting younger and healthier. I am so grateful for real food!

I linked up three this week because I’m feeling froggy. :-) Hot Cocoa Mix, Chunky Apple Bread, and my grocery price list. Thanks for hosting!


4 Tiffany @ The Coconut Mama January 9, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Hi Jill :). Thanks for hosting. This week I’m sharing a recipe for grain free flat bread. This bread works great for sandwiches and burgers!



5 Marcy January 9, 2012 at 9:02 pm

I linked up a maple macadamia nut butter that I used as a topping for oatmeal.


6 Heather @Gluten-Free Cat January 9, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I linked up a fresh salad that’s flavorful and so refreshing after the holiday decadence!


7 Dawn @ Small Footprint Family January 9, 2012 at 9:18 pm

This Monday, I’ve posted my recipe for homemade coconut milk. Most canned coconut milk has toxic BPA in it and most boxed coconut milk has tons of additives. If you are still buying coconut milk in cans or boxes, then you’ll love this simple, frugal, more nutritious alternative! If you then culture it into yogurt or kefir, your DIY coconut milk will be even more nutritious and delicious!

This week I am preparing for my GAPS Challenge coming up on January 15 with several pots of beef stock. It is also my latest REAL FOOD 101 post: How to Make Beef Stock.

Come join the GAPS Challenge and make insane amounts of stock!

Hello There,

This week I’m sharing a quick and easy (10 minute) creamy dairy-free mushroom soup!


Be Well,


10 Roxanne January 9, 2012 at 10:08 pm

Okay,Jill, so I am brand new to this link-up world, and I put my name where the title of my post should be!!!

Instead of “Roxanne” it should say, “Real Food – Real Salt” — Oops, how embarrassing. :)


11 Debbie @ Easy Natural Food January 9, 2012 at 10:37 pm

Hi Jill, I’m sharing my Moroccan Chicken Casserole and Creamy Tomato, Sausage and Kale Soup. I hope you have a great week!


12 Joy at The Liberated Kitchen January 9, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Hi there and thanks for hosting! We save money and get quality food by buying in bulk from local farmers. That poses a bit of a storage problem in our tiny house! Sure we’ve got a great big freezer, but we’ve also got food hiding in all sorts of places you wouldn’t guess. Check out our creative food storage solutions at: http://theliberatedkitchenpdx.com/basics/creative-food-storage/

Hi Jill! Thanks for hosting!

Today I linked up a post on epigenetics, and how we have the potential through diet and lifestyle changes to change our DNA – very cool stuff. :-) Just because you may have genetic tendency towards a disease, doesn’t mean that you have to get that disease.


I’ve also moved to a new site, http://www.commonsensehome.com, so I hope folks will stop by and take a look around.


14 Starlene January 9, 2012 at 10:53 pm

I included my 5 spice Pork and Vegetables dish. Thanks for hosting!


15 Jessica January 9, 2012 at 11:14 pm

Thanks for hosting! Stop by and try this delicious fennel honey!


16 Paula @ Whole Intentions January 9, 2012 at 11:35 pm

Hi Jill,

Today I shared links for making Homemade Cream of Chicken Soup you don’t have to get from a can. I also shared a wealth of information on how you can heal candida yourself by Treating Candida Naturally, and all the ins and outs of Soaking & Sprouting: How & Why.

Thanks as always for hosting a great link up!


17 Laura @ Gluten Free Pantry January 10, 2012 at 12:42 am

Thanks for hosting Jill! This week I linked up 3 recipes: Chicken Curry Spaghetti Squash, Creamy Sweet Potato Soup and a Chocolate Milkshake (Dairy Free).

Have a wonderful week!


18 Michelle @ Simplify, Live, Love January 10, 2012 at 12:48 am

Hi there! Thanks for hosting! Today I linked up a recipe for a really delicious, homemade 9 Grain bread. I hope you enjoy!


19 Leslie @ Real Food Freaks January 10, 2012 at 6:03 am

Nothing controversial this week, Jill! Just two recipes: tomato balsamic pot roast and broccoli leek soup.


20 Lauren Hairston Collado January 10, 2012 at 8:48 am

Hi Jill! This week I’ve posted my recipe for Twelfth Night Cake (no white flour or white sugar) and Filets de poisson cardinal, which is a combination of fish filets and shrimp in a tomato sauce.


21 France @ Beyond The Peel January 10, 2012 at 11:51 am

Good morning Jill,
Thanks for hosting another great week. I can’t wait to dig in and check them all out. I’m sharing a post on preserving lemons. Have a great week.


22 Jennifer @ How to Peel an Onion January 10, 2012 at 12:48 pm

Hi Jill, I shared my post on preparing for quick vegetable sides, which includes a recipe for honey-cinnamon butternut squash mash. Thanks for hosting, have a great week!


23 Melissa @ Dyno-mom January 10, 2012 at 1:40 pm

Thanks for hosting, Jill! This week I am focusing on picking up good habits in the new year and I am starting with coconut oil. Most folks here probably know about it and love but there are always newbies, especially at this time of the year!


24 Amy @ A Little Nosh January 10, 2012 at 3:33 pm

My first time here…thanks for hosting! Hope you like my whole wheat waffles.

I almost forgot to add dessert! In addition to the mushroom soup, I shared a delicious and super easy granola (coconut ginger granola) with a fun parfait idea.




27 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots January 11, 2012 at 9:31 pm

I just had a birthday celebration at my house, so I made this cake and my little guy was haaaaapy! It’s also GAPS-friendly and grain-free.



28 Emily Bartlett @ Holistic Kid January 12, 2012 at 1:15 am

Hi Jill! Better late than never, I’ve shared my 10 Favorite Grain-Free Dinners on a Budget. Thanks for hosting! http://www.holistickid.com/10-grain-free-dinners-on-a-budget/


29 Rachel @ day2day joys January 13, 2012 at 9:27 am
