Post image for Fat Tuesday: June 12, 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!

I shared our Turnip Greens & Liver recipe. It’s super easy and a really nice alternative to eggs in the morning!


7 Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots June 11, 2012 at 10:03 pm

This week I am sharing my latest REAL FOOD 101 post, all about how to make ice cream. I share my recipes for Basic Chocolate Ice Cream as well as Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

And to go along with it, I have a recipe for homemade “Magic” Chocolate Sauce, like the Magic Shell sauce you might have used as a kid. It hardens over the ice cream, and gets more coconut oil into your diet to boot!


8 Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat June 11, 2012 at 10:23 pm

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how taste enhancers deceive our minds and bodies into eating too much of the wrong foods, and how to avoid taste enhancers by eating real food.

Why Taste Enhancers Should Be Avoided and How to Do It

Thanks, Leslie

19 Kirsten June 12, 2012 at 7:49 am

Yum, so many delicious looking recipes to follow.

Went surfing the net looking for a dishwashing liquid recipe and somehow ended up here :) (So naturally shared my own post, a review of Arabella Forge’s fabulous book Frugavore, plus her Sweet Potato Hommus recipe http://sustainablesuburbia.net/missing-reward-offered-peasant-meals-and-practical-skills/ )


20 Kathy (aka Mrs Dull) June 12, 2012 at 8:26 am

Hi Jill … Running a little late on my posting this week so I thought I’d share a couple from the archives. The Pantry Principle Part 1 – Save Gobs of Time Cooking and Whey, Miss Muffet’s Favorite!

Hi Jill! I’m linking up my Raw Strawberry Cocoa Pudding. It’s dairy free and so creamy! Have a great week!


22 Annon June 12, 2012 at 9:25 am

That rhubarb cake is SO not real food. All purpose flour and refined sugar doesn’t qualify.


23 Linnae June 12, 2012 at 10:37 am

This week I am sharing 2 recipes- one for Pickled Pea Shoots and one for Kale Sausage!

Thanks for hosting!
