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!

Cuba’s journey into sustainable agriculture was brought on by adversity. Perhaps we can learn some lessons w/o having to suffer as they have.

I posted about a giveaway for a gluten free, real food cookbook. It’s been called “Nourishing Traditions for Dummies” because the recipes are not as time consuming and complicated, but they are nutrient dense and gluten free.

I shared my recipe for BBQ Chicken with Homemade Russian Dressing Marinade.
I used to make this recipe with Wish-Bone Russian dressing, now I make my own. Wish-Bone’s first ingredient is corn syrup!
This chicken has lots of great BBQ flavor and is very moist since I marinate it for 24 hours.
Thanks for hosting!
