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!

Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how real food, grassfed meat, and a good attitude can enable the body to stay healthy by improving “terrain.” Real food and grassfed meat were the key to my regaining my health. I learned so much from the Weston A. Price Foundation website.

Hello Fat Tuesday!
Thanks for hosting us Jill!
It’s been a great year for Oregon strawberries and my lavender bush ‘Munstead’ is just beggining to flower heavily – so I thought that you might enjoy this new spin on a very old dish – Lavender Berry Terrine!

Thank you, Jill, as always for hosting this fantastic carnival!

Thank you for hosting such a great carnival!

This week I’m sharing our weekly menu plan. I have to create it to be allergen-free, based on a rotation diet, GAPS/Primal-friendly, and work on decreasing my budget while keeping the quality of food high. Even if menu planning feels impossible, it CAN be done! You can watch as this relative newbie learns and struggle through it.



21 Barb @ Frugal Local Kitchen June 19, 2012 at 4:34 pm

Thanks for hosting! I shared a simple side dish I just came up with last week.

The rotation diet meal plan looks pretty interesting – definitely something I need to check out.


22 Mary @ Homemade Dutch Apple Pie June 20, 2012 at 6:37 am

I posted a recipe for Dutch Strawberry Rhubarb Pie. I’m not sure why my title didn’t show up again.



23 Carla @ Real Food Pioneer June 20, 2012 at 2:22 pm

Thanks for hosting! Today I’m sharing my post Nature Has All Answers: Homemade Cleanser to Homemade Toothpaste! Sorry I was a little late to the party this week! O hope you enjoy!

You can make several jewelry options in handmade silver jewelry.
If you are thinking of buying a piece of handmade jewellery from India or any
other Asian country make sure that you check on the size as
many of the designs will be on the small side for western women so please check but as they are now creating these lovely
pieces of silver bead jewellery for world trade you are
bound to get a piece that will fit you perfectly. A good number of recycled waste
papers and aligned materials are used for the production of handmade paper.

The more we washed our hands with it, the more these bits
of spearmint were freed from the soap base.
You can make this simpler by mailing your catalog to them or inquiring by email.
Handmade items are generally far better in more ways
than one, and they should be sought out whenever possible.

The more we washed our hands with it, the more these bits of spearmint were freed from the
soap base. Talk to the store manager and find out how
much they charge to rent a booth, usually they charge a flat monthly fee.

20 minutes daily finding more information on how to improve her business, advertise on other websites or read about other successful candle makers.
