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!

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!

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about tradition of cooking a thick grassfed rib steak cut from the chine area. This is one of the most traditional and valued cuts of beef. I still celebrate this fading tradition, because it tastes so great!

Hi! Hope you had a great Mother’s Day weekend. This week I posted on stinging nettles, including a recipe for nettle paté.

I also posted on why we need to label GMO foods, which most people don’t know make up 70% of all foods on grocery store shelves. California is poised to become the first state in the nation to require labeling of GMO foods, and WE REALLY NEED HELP to beat Monsanto. If the labeling initiative passes in CA, the rest of the nation will follow.

Have a great week!

I shared a couple posts. One is on how to make your own apple cider vinegar. The other is a little experiment with oil on top of a ferment to see how well it works to seal the top. So far so good!

This week I’m sharing my recipe for Classic Clam Dip! A very nutrient dense dip that also taste wonderful :)



26 Stephanie May 15, 2012 at 5:47 pm

I’ve left a link to a simple spring salad, great for any foragers who have found a patch of sorrel. This is very simple, three ingredients, and will fit into most diets.

No gluten, no grains, and no soy, although I did spend enough time in Asia to recognize that soy (especially tofu, miso, and fermented black soy beans) can be a tradional food part of a “real food” diet. Soymilk as Americans drink it and soy protein isolate on the other hand…


27 Leah May 15, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I linked to my post about how I process my pastured chickens into chicken stock and various cuts. Hope you enjoy! http://owningwellness.wordpress.com/2012/04/29/processing-chickens/

Hi and thanks for hosting!

This week I’m sharing a terrific recipe for No Knead Sauerkraut. Squeezing cabbage gets pretty tiresome after a while. Save yourself kraut kneading time and effort with this easy method.

Have a great day!


30 Rachel @ Rediscovering the Kitchen May 17, 2012 at 1:24 am

Hello, I am new here, so I hope my post falls under the “real food issues” category. It is about a campaign to get GMOs labelled, something that I feel is very important. You can find all the details here;
