Fat Tuesday: January 3, 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!

The goose was rich and satisfying, with crisp skin, and nutrient-dense innards enriching the stuffing. Then we used the rest of the goose. This included saving the glorious goose fat.

    time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and

    for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Good day! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
    blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired
    of Wordpress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m
    looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  • I hardly leave a response, but i did some searching and wound up here Fat
    Tuesday: January 3, 2012. And I do have a few questions for you if
    you do not mind. Could it be simply me or does it look as if like a few of
    these responses look as if they are written by
    brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I’d like to follow everything fresh you have to post.
    Could you make a list of all of all your social pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

  • Kia Dealership in Elizabethton May 26, 2014, 9:19 pm

    Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect
    against hackers? I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything
    I’ve worked hard on. Any suggestions?
