Fat Tuesday: April 2, 2013

Fat Tuesday: April 2, 2013 post image

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!

Share your special holiday meal! 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!

If you are featured on Sunday Snippets (you must have a link back to be featured) I will also add your post to my facebook page.

    Hi Jill! Thank you for hosting and have a wonderful week!

  • Eileen @ Phoenix Helix April 1, 2013, 8:44 pm

    Thanks for hosting again! This week I did some in-depth research into Kombucha and found that a lot of misinformation has worked its way into the folklore. It’s still a beneficial beverage, but you’ll be surprised to learn how much “common wisdom” simply isn’t true. I’m late to your kombucha challenge, but better late than never! I’ve really been enjoying my home brews, and posted a recipe as well.

  • Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about grassfed lamb. We had grassfed lamb for Easter dinner. Lamb is traditional in the Spring. I talk about different types of grassfed lamb, and include a link to a recipe for grassfed leg of lamb.

    Thanks for hosting Jill!
    My daughter and I made some healthy nut butter cups last week so I’m sharing about that. I’m also sharing my latest post in my emergency preparedness series and this time I’m covering natural alternatives to allergy medication.

    Have a great week!

    Have a super week,

  • Andrea April 2, 2013, 12:16 pm

    It’s been so long that I forgot how to link up! Dang! My photo says Andrea, but it’s really my Cauliflower “Pasta” Salad with Italian Sausage and Zucchini.
    Thanks for hosting!

    The image to this week’s article is a golden wheat field — this same gold is the color of the Gjetost cheese that our Son and Heir made, the inspiration for Kitchen Failures Can Be Delicious. As beautiful as the cheese was, it wasn’t particularly creamy, caramelized, and yummy — but I wasn’t about to throw it out. It’s had a new life in various dinners, and because there’s so much of it, it continues to live on in various gastronomic possibilities.

    Hey Jill!
    I posted my recipe for Paleo Minty Macaroons – they are delicious, simple, no-bake, and have wild ingredients!
    I also added a link to my pickled dyed easter egg experiment – which turned out great!
    Thanks for hosting, love to everyone!

    What’s better than chocolate cake? Chocolate cake that tastes like a brownie because it’s made with coconut oil! I shared a recipe that you’ll want to make right.this.minute. Consider yourself warned!

    And what’s the big deal with saturated fat? Why does “everyone” say it’s so bad for us? What does the research actually say? I shared my research on the topic and it’s an excellent read for anyone wondering why the real foodies are pushing saturated fat when the “experts” say otherwise.

    Thanks for hosting! This week I just had to show off my pretty (and cheap) bottles for my No ‘Poo mixtures. It has to be pretty!!

  • Julia Visser April 3, 2013, 5:47 am


    Thanks so much for hosting. I posted the first of a three-part series on fat, Part 1: The Skinny on Fat Phobia.


    Many thanks again!

    Thanks for hosting Jill. I thought since you liked my latest article on how to make magnesium oil spray for dirt cheap without the sting and not the way most everyone has been taught is the “right way” I would share it here. Although it is not really about food per se it has enormous nutrition implications.


  • Jim April 4, 2013, 1:23 pm

    Is there any way that link #87 “Jim” can be changed to the title “How To Make Magnesium Oil Spray Painless?” I foolishly thought linky really wanted my name.

  • Julia Visser April 7, 2013, 7:46 am

    Thanks for hosting! 🙂

    I’ve got the second to a three-part series on FAT…

    Part 2: Clearing Controversy on Saturated Fat, Cholesterol and Heart Health

    Many thanks!

  • Sarah @ RealFoodOutlaws April 7, 2013, 4:12 pm

    Thanks for hosting, Jill! I had to go to a get-together with some friends with food allergies so I made this real food banana cream pie that’s gluten, grain, dairy, and sugar-free. http://wp.me/p2lqEs-e2
