Post image for Fat Tuesday: April 3, 2012

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!

This week I am kicking things off with another old-fashioned candy recipe, and this one is GAPS-legal! I am sharing my tried and true version of honey-sweetened Almond Roca, with an optional GAPS-legal chocolate layer (you could also sub my white chocolate recipe for that layer). Just in time for Easter baskets :)

Have a great week!

My post this week explains some reasons why the price of grassfed meat is going up and why it is still worth it. If people don’t buy grassfed meat, then grassfed meat could disappear.

Thanks for hosting!!

This week I’ve posted on the dangers of disposable diapers for International Real Diaper Week and the “Great Cloth Diaper Change” World Record Competition, which begins April 16, 2012.

Did you know that even “eco-friendly” disposables can cause major health and environmental problems, or that it’s pretty easy to learn to raise your baby without using any diapers at all?

Hi Jill and thanks for hosting and warm wishes for a Happy Easter break! This week I posted SOMERSET EASTER BISCUITS which are a traditional West Country Easter Biscuit but are not Gaps friendly; however, as they are an ancient Easter recipe going back hundreds of years and were given in bundles of three to friends and family on Easter Sunday, I thought it might be of interest to your readers. I also posted HOME REMEDIES FOR SEASONAL ALLERGIES, EASTER TREE CRAFT AND KITCHEN CLEANING TIPS.
I have also included your linky in NMN’s directory.
I am looking for wonderful creative bloggers to come share their posts at Seasonal Celebration Sunday over at Natural Mothers Network. And, I really hope that some of you will put Seasonal Celebration on your list linky parties to visit and link to, every Sunday/Monday! Here’s the link: http://naturalmothersnetwork.com
HAPPY EASTER!

Thanks for Hosting Jill! This week I’m sharing my take on Mrs Dull’s pot roast recipe. Her cookbook was published in the 30’s. Pretty much all beef was grassfed back then! Also, do you ever feel that your kitchen just doesn’t cut the mustard? I know I do sometimes. My kitchen post is all about that feeling.

Hi! I linked a recipe for Vegan “Parmesan” but I guess I couldn’t use the “” marks in the title so the title says just Vegan :S Anyway, the link that says Vegan is for vegan parmesan :)

Happy Tuesday! I shared my recipe for Coffee Muffins with Chocolate Chips or Raisins. They taste great either way that you make them! This recipe is gluten free but can be made using “regular” flour if you don’t have an issue with gluten.
Thanks for hosting!

Thanks for hosting! I linked to my rambling post about how expensive cheap foods are in terms of health and why you should believe me and not pretty nutritionists. Stop by and see if it makes sense to you!

Hi and thanks for hosting! This week I’m sharing a recipe for Raw Liver Shooters. As daunting as it may sound, consuming raw liver just takes a little creativity and courage. This is an easy way to start enjoying one of the most nutrient-dense, utterly energizing super foods on the planet!

Have a great week!

Also, I finally put up my tried and true recipe for Bacon, Egg, and Cheese “Muffins”. It’s one of my favorite bulk/make-ahead meals, especially since breakfast can get in a rut sometimes and it’s nice to spice it up!

They don’t demand a response so your ex can respond if they want, but they won’t feel
pressured to do so.
