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.

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.

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how I wish more restaurants served real food. Real food is good quality food, and it tastes better and makes you feel good when you eat it. I have made nine suggestions for how restaurants could improve. I remember when many restaurants used to be better, and sometimes they used to use healthy fat to cook.

I entered five posts this week:
Roasted red pepper recipes – one soup/sauce and the other a rice dish
How coconut oil is helping me kick my coffee habit
Why I don’t think Michelle Obamas school lunch policy is acceptable
and PT 1 in our egg series – Egg-cellence


3 Leslie @ Real Food Freaks January 23, 2012 at 9:32 pm

Hi Jill,
I posted a response to the Paula Deen hoop-la and a recipe.


4 Dawn @ Small Footprint Family January 23, 2012 at 9:46 pm

This week I’ve posted an archive piece that happens to be timely right now: The Inconvenient Truth About Canola Oil.

Happy Fat Tuesday!

This week I am sharing one of my favorite drinks to enjoy on a cold winter night: “A Bowl of Soul” made with almond milk, chamomile, and honey.

Have a wonderful week!
Be Well,


6 Chris January 24, 2012 at 10:37 am

Ohh that sounds fantastic Amber! Love the name too. :)


7 Jessica January 23, 2012 at 9:59 pm

Thanks for hosting! Today I posted an easy, really yummy cultured mustard recipe.



8 Emily @ Recipes to Nourish January 23, 2012 at 10:09 pm

Thanks for hosting. I shared a Fettuccine Alfredo recipe. It’s so yummy! Fresh lemon juice and zest add an extra special flavor to this dish, they help cut the richness too. Thanks again.



9 Stacy @Stacy Makes Cents January 23, 2012 at 10:12 pm

Thanks for hosting Jill. :-) I linked up three this week.


10 Starlene January 23, 2012 at 10:20 pm

Hi Jill, coincidentally I am giving away a copy of Health, Home and Happiness’ What Can I Eat Now – 30 Days on GAPS Intro. I hope it fits the criteria since it is a great e-book to guide through a month on the GAPS Introduction Diet. Thanks for hosting Fat Tuesday!


11 Paula @ Whole Intentions January 23, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Hi Jill,

This week I’ve been busy making Ketchup: Fermented & Sugar Free for your Probiotic Challenge! Because of that I just had to post about Fish Heads in My Stock Pot so I shared that today as well.

I also added one for a sweet tooth: Cactus Bread That Melts in Your Mouth (gluten-free!).

Thanks for hosting!

Hi and thanks for hosting!
Bulk buying and farm direct shopping are the way our very low income family manages to keep up our real-food, organic, locally based diet. But it can be a financial trick to go from grocery store shopping to bulk buys. This post on Bulk Buying without Breaking the Bank launches a series on farm direct and bulk shopping!

I’ve also been undergoing a gluten challenge for the past two months… and it came to a crashing halt the other day. I posted the very personal breakdown that convinced me to end my challenge and get back on GAPS, asap.



13 Amanda January 23, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Thanks for hosting! I shared a coconut oil review and a post on how to use coconut oil flour.


14 Dr Lisa @ Naked Moxie January 23, 2012 at 11:01 pm

Thanks for hosting! I shared a big hit with my friends.. Easy Chicken Fajitas/Tacos Crock Pot Style. Healthy and simple to boot. Excited to click around and check out the other links too! :) http://nakedmoxie.com/2011/09/19/easy-crock-pot-shredded-chicken-fajitas/


15 Deb January 23, 2012 at 11:03 pm

Thanks for hosting! Please excuse my blondness…and me putting MY name, instead of my post name. *sigh* Seriously, I have to wonder where my head is half the time…ok, 99% of the time! I would change the title if I could…but oh well, ya may as well know I tend to be goofy most of the time. *giggle*


16 Debbie @ Easy Natural Food January 24, 2012 at 12:48 am

Hi Jill, I’m sharing my GAPS-friendly Spaghetti Squash Bake, a Split Pea and Ham Soup recipe, and my slightly indulgent rice pudding for breakfast :) Thanks for hosting and have a great week.


17 Holli@scratchtreehouse January 24, 2012 at 1:16 am

Nice new header design! I like it:)

Thanks for hosting, I see so many posts I don’t have time to read tonight!


18 Laurie January 24, 2012 at 1:39 am

Thanks for hosting, Jill.

Today I linked up a post about detox deodorant, which has been shown to help your body heal and remove toxins that have been linked to breast cancer. I used it myself to heal up a nasty rash.



19 Ruth @ Ruth's Real Food January 24, 2012 at 1:58 am

Thanks for hosting! Have a great day.


20 Rebecca @ Natural Mothers Network January 24, 2012 at 7:33 am

First time on this linky and what a feast of wonderful content- thank you:) I have linked up a smoothie I offered my teens who were struggling with their workload at school. It worked and after much research, I am sharing it with everyone. Come and take the Brainpower Smoothie challenge and see if it works for you! #69


21 Susan January 24, 2012 at 7:42 am

Thanks for hosting. I’ve posted a great waffle recipe for those that are grain free.



22 Heather @Gluten-Free Cat January 24, 2012 at 8:36 am

Happy Tuesday! I’m linking up a whole foods salad dressing made with orange, cilantro, and yellow pepper. Delish! Have a great week!

Added my recipe for Lactofermented Indian Spiced Cauliflower and Probiotic Rich Lemon Poppyseed Dressing.

Thank you!

Over at ORN we’re into the second week of the GAPS Challenge! You can see the progress here, in the comments:


And then I have also consolidated a few of my favorite GAPS resources for easy viewing. It can get a little overwhelming to find GAPS recipes, especially when you first start. Hopefully this will help! I have another one planned for next week too, part two, if you will.



25 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots January 24, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Oops, link fail!! Sorry :D

Here’s the 5 GAPS Recipe Resources link: http://www.ournourishingroots.com/5-recipe-resources-for-gaps/


26 Chris January 24, 2012 at 10:40 am

I’m chipping in with a yummy experiment with making buttermilk and the resulting buttermilk chocolate milk recipe… I don’t know how many people have tried making buttermilk chocolate milk but it was new to me. :)


27 caroline January 24, 2012 at 12:08 pm

Wow! There’s lots to look at tonight! Thank you for hosting! I shared my Apple and Cardamom muffins, SCD legal and gluten-free.


31 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots January 24, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I’m also sharing my recipe for GAPS chocolate (honey-sweetened), which you can also make into chocolate chips. I’m working on a GAPS chocolate chip cookie recipe that I will hopefully have up soon!



32 shelley alexander January 24, 2012 at 9:11 pm

This is my first time participating in Fat Tuesday, thanks for hosting it! I put my name instead of the name of the recipe. My post is a Meyer lemon flax hummus which uses flax seed oil and meyer lemon in the recipe. It is a great easy variation on hummus that is nutrient-dense. Have a wonderful week!


33 Melissa @ Dyno-mom January 24, 2012 at 9:43 pm

I love this carnival! This week I am linking to an in-depth, nitty-gritty explanation of sourdough technique so you can master this food! Hope you stop by!


34 Sheena Cucina January 24, 2012 at 11:42 pm

Hi Jill, this time I’m sharing my recipe for my Herbed Goat Cheese Ball. If anyone is casein or dairy-free this can also be made with dairy-free cream cheese. Thanks for hosting Fat Tuesday!


35 Amanda January 25, 2012 at 8:34 am

Thanks for hosting! My two posts this week are both recipes. One is a recipe for taco seasoning and the other for a delicious post of chicken soup. There are so many recipes for chicken soup out there, but I promise, you will have to look no further once you have this recipe! :)


36 Christine January 25, 2012 at 11:28 am

Hi Jill,

Thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing a recipe for easy, homemade, chemical-free bacon! Enjoy!


37 Emily @ Random Recycling January 25, 2012 at 1:43 pm

thanks for recommending your linky, so many great posts here to read!


38 Jessica January 25, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Thanks for hosting! Posted an aluminum free baking powder recipe.


39 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots January 26, 2012 at 4:20 pm

I just put up my recipe for homemade white chocolate, which I sweetened with honey to make it GAPS legal. Plus, unlike my chocolate chip recipe that contains cocoa powder, this recipe is completely GAPS-legal for even those who cannot tolerate the cocoa powder. Enjoy!
