Fat Tuesday: February 7, 2012

Fat Tuesday: February 7, 2012 post image

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.

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!

  • Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat February 6, 2012, 9:53 pm

    Thanks for hosting Fat Tuesday. My post this week shows what a fat cap is. Today, because of the demonization of saturated fat, many people have never even seen a fat cap. Grassfed fat is great, nutrient-dense, with CLA and the proper ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.

    What Is a Fat Cap? This Is a Fat Cap!

  • Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots February 6, 2012, 9:54 pm

    Today I’m sharing my LAST WEEK on the GAPS Challenge post, and I can’t believe it’s almost over!

    I’m also sharing my coveted Italian dressing recipe, which always is a crowd-pleaser and gets people begging for the recipe. It’s pretty awesome! I made it part of my latest REAL FOOD 101 where I also talk about making a basic vinaigrette. Two for one!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill. Today I linked up a post titled “Getting Started with Home Canning” – http://www.commonsensehome.com/getting-started-with-home-canning/

    Home food preservation is a great way to stretch your food dollar and preserve local food for use year round.

    I know a lot of people are intimidated by canning. but it’s really not that hard. I hope folks will stop by, take a look and give it a try.

    face of website design and development, creating a strong presence in open source platforms.

    By making using of Word – Press plugins, you can get an
    additional boost of strength in keeping readers struck into your internet site.
    In short I just want to explain that there is
    a large market for premium additions, and enhancements.

  • Yee Thackxton December 31, 2013, 7:49 am

    Hey there this is kinda of off topic but I was wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously
