    Thank you for hosting, Jill!

    I’ve share a recipe for easy rosemary walnuts that are so tasty and some great healthy snack ideas.

    Have a blessed week!

  • Leslie @ Real Food Freaks January 16, 2012, 9:11 pm

    Hey Jill,
    I love your new site design– it looks great! I shared a pot roast recipe and a pancake recipe. I also shared a review for Dyno-Mom’s new eBook and our coconut flour giveaway.

  • Dori January 16, 2012, 9:16 pm

    Thanks for hosting us Jill!
    Today I’m sharing a recipe for allergen-friendly Lemon & Poppy Seed Muffins – they’re free from gluten, dairy, eggs, and gums!

  • hännah @ dishesanddishes January 16, 2012, 9:18 pm

    Hi! I added quinoa-salmon cakes this week…they are sooo good!

  • Dawn @ Small Footprint Family January 16, 2012, 9:37 pm

    Despite the cost of everything going up, there is no reason to pay retail for organic and natural products ever again. My post this week is on how to start a natural food buying club in your community!


  • Roxanne January 16, 2012, 9:39 pm

    Thank you for hosting, Jill. Hope you have a great week.

  • Lauren Hairston Collado January 16, 2012, 9:39 pm

    I just posted my recipe for Beef and Carrot Stew with Parsnip and Potato Mash. It’s great for using all those root veggies and slow cooking grass-fed beef.

    Thanks for hosting!

  • Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat January 16, 2012, 9:42 pm

    Thanks for hosting Fat Tuesday! My post this week is once again about the benefits of grassfed fat. The simple alternative to weight loss surgery (this alternative used to be common before World War II) — is a low-carb, high-fat diet for weight loss. This diet would have been full of nutrients from the fat of grassfed animals.

    Before Weight Loss Surgery—Try Grassfed Fat

  • Heather @Gluten-Free Cat January 16, 2012, 9:45 pm

    Hi Jill! I’ve linked up my vegan sweet potato and black bean tamales. What fun to make and even better to eat!

  • Kelsy @ The Liberated Kitchen January 16, 2012, 9:58 pm

    We’ve started a new blog series about empowering kids on special diets. A big change in diet can be hard on kids, even when they know it’s for their own good. This first post outlines *why* you might need to go on a traditional foods diet.

    Thanks for hosting!

  • Jen January 16, 2012, 10:16 pm

    Hi Jill,
    I posted three today – one is from a guest poster Ruth @Ruth’s Real Food about Real Food Curing “incurable” diseases. a quick and easy idea for spaghetti using a decent jarred sauce I found at Trader Joe’s, and A review for Simply Clean e-book by Andrea @ Frugally Sustainable. Thanks for hosting this every week!

  • Starlene January 16, 2012, 10:16 pm

    I have included my Pork Roast Croquettes. These are a good way to fix up meat that has a dry texture (like all the boiled chicken from making broth!). :-) Thanks for hosting!

  • Emily @ Recipes to Nourish January 16, 2012, 10:17 pm

    Thank you so much for hosting! I shared a Chai Tea recipe. My version does not have black tea and has a few uncommon herbs in it (for extra nourishment). It’s absolutely delicious. Thanks again.


  • Paula @ Whole Intentions January 16, 2012, 10:31 pm

    Hi Jill,

    I’m back again, and this time with some gluten free cake recipes for your sweet tooth. Gluten-Free Applesauce Almond Cake and Gluten-Free Chocolate Zucchini Buckwheat Cake are two of our favorites.

    Balancing that out however, is a how-to on Treat Candida With Diet – so be careful in how much you indulge!

    Thanks for hosting!

  • Emily Bartlett @ Holistic Kid January 16, 2012, 10:34 pm

    Hi Jill – Thanks for hosting! I am sharing my post: Earthing – Are You Connected? I’m fascinated by this simple yet powerful concept that our planet’s energy is essential to our health and vitality, yet we humans have manage to become completely disconnected. When was the last time your bare feet touched the Earth?
    Happy Fat Tuesday!

  • Laurie January 16, 2012, 10:56 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Jill. Today I linked up a post on Natural Back Pain Relief, which includes a discount code for a back support belt that I have used and recommend (it prevents you from using bad form while lifting) that is manufactured by a company here in Wisconsin. There are also recommendations for foods that may help alleviate pain, and a video demonstrating proper form for sitting and bending.


  • Mindy @ Too Many Jars in My Kitchen! January 16, 2012, 11:57 pm

    I’m sharing my health goals that I’ve made for this upcoming year as I continue on my GAPS journey to better health.

  • Amber January 17, 2012, 12:01 am


    This week I shared a vegan & cane-sugar free chocolate pumpkin pudding.

    Have a beautiful, healthy-full week,

  • Debbie @ Easy Natural Food January 17, 2012, 12:39 am

    Hi Jill, I’ve finally completed my post on how to make sauerkraut. I wanted to include all of the details that I had to work out through trial and error when I first started making it. I’ve also linked up my Spiced Broccoli and Coconut Milk Soup recipe. Now to head over to your probiotic linky!

  • Jessica January 17, 2012, 1:19 am

    Thanks for hosting! Today I have posted my cultured ginger root recipe.


  • clickclackgorilla January 17, 2012, 4:16 am

    Morning everybody!

    This week I shared a bit of my real food journey. I started getting into the whole real food thing more seriously after getting pregnant. (I had long been into healthy eating and whole foods, but hadn’t discovered the whole “real food” movement and learning more about traditional diets). So this is a wrap up about a real food day in my life during pregnancy (second trimester). Anyone who has any tips or stories of their own, I would absolutely LOVE it if you stopped by and shared. We need to band together! Cheers.


  • Stacy @Stacy Makes Cents January 17, 2012, 7:50 am

    Thanks for hosting, Jill! I’ve linked up my recipe for Homemade Ginger Ale…..great for settling upset tummies.

  • Michelle @ Simplify, Live, Love January 17, 2012, 9:16 am

    Thanks for hosting! I linked up a tutorial for making your own homemade egg rolls. So yummy! Hope you enjoy.

  • Meagan January 17, 2012, 9:50 am

    I am sharing my grain-free lemon biscuit cookies!! I love the lemon zest!


  • France @ Beyond The Peel January 17, 2012, 11:00 am

    Hi Jill, Thanks for hosting. I’m sharing a recipe for Squash Gnocchi with a Curried Fig Butter. Hope you have a great week.

    I hope to see you at Whole Food Wednesday. Have a great week!

  • Kristi January 17, 2012, 12:05 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Jill. I linked up my three bean chili and chips. It’s hearty and warming, and thick, and my favorite chili to date!!! Fresh, hot crispy fried tortilla chips pair up quite well with it!!


  • Melanie January 17, 2012, 12:07 pm

    Shared my Carrot Ginger Kvass. Thanks!

  • Stealthy Mom January 17, 2012, 12:22 pm

    Today I added Veggie Enchiladas to the list. We love enchiladas, but if the components (sauce, cheese, tortillas, beans) are not made from scratch they become sodium bombs! To avoid a disaster, we made our own and they were great! This recipe links to step-by-step instructions to make soft cheese and homemade tortillas. (wheat or GF) Thanks for hosting!

  • Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots January 17, 2012, 12:37 pm

    This week we all started the GAPS Challenge! On January 15, we committed to 30 days of either going grain/gluten-free, on Full GAPS, or on Intro GAPS.

    I am also sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post, all about how to make Shellfish Stock. I love to use this recipe as a base for bisque, seafood stew, or maybe I will try it out in a risotto when I can have rice again!

  • Sara Shay @ YourThrivingFamily January 17, 2012, 1:49 pm

    Just found you today via Healthy Blog Carnival! Will now be keeping up with you. We are still at the start of our real food journey.

  • Beck January 17, 2012, 2:15 pm

    Thank you for hosting! I’ve posted a Toasted Nut Macaroon recipe (with or without nuts, it’s tasty). Pair with chocolate and it’s irresistible. :)

  • Vicky January 17, 2012, 3:32 pm

    Hello! Thank you for hosting! I linked my recipe for Apple Sauce this week. Have a lovely week!

  • Rachel @ Surviving The Stores January 18, 2012, 12:47 am

    Thanks so much for the link-up!!

    I’ve just finished 2 weeks of very low carbs to help beat my carb/sugar addiction and I posted my results as well as what I found helpful (and all about my new love of garbanzo bean flour!) :)

    I also suspect now that I have a gluten sensitivity (more about that in my post) so I would LOVE any tips from you guys!!

  • Rachael @ gratefullynourished January 18, 2012, 10:56 am

    Thank you for hosting! I have really got to remember that MY name doesn’t go in the link-up, but the article name does. Someday I will get it right!

    This week I am sharing why I am starting GAPS, especially since I don’t have any huge health issues, nor do any of my family members.

    It is all about the journey!

  • Robin August 12, 2014, 5:54 pm

    Helpful information. Fortunate me I discovered your web site by chance, and I am stunned why this coincidence did not took place earlier!
    I bookmarked it.
