Fat Tuesday: June 26, 2012 post image

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.

  • Stanley Fishman @ Tender Grassfed Meat June 25, 2012, 10:39 pm

    Thanks for hosting! In my post this week I debunk the “Healthiest Meal Ever”, which looks more like airline or American school cafeteria food. The British scientists who designed this meal failed to distinguish between factory and real food. I offer a much healthier and better tasting alternative made with real food.

  • Primal Toad June 26, 2012, 7:31 am

    So I’m linking to 2 posts since I run 2 blogs. For Primal Toad I respond to Ann Marie’s ridiculous post on why she is not Paleo. I don’t care that she isn’t. I care about the fact that her reasons are flawed.


    And, I am a huge fan of smoothies. I created my first ever wine smoothie a few weeks ago. If you like wine and fruit then you will love this smoothie. It’s on the sweeter side but is nothing like those Jamba Juice smoothies. You will love it!

    You can make several jewelry options in handmade silver jewelry.
    However, the bright red coloring of the characters often clash against the deep Jade coloring making it hard to decipher
    the proper letters. Handmade items are generally
    far better in more ways than one, and they should be sought out

    Getting a written replacement valuation is an effective weapon when seeking value from your
    insurance company or loss adjuster. You can make this simpler by mailing
    your catalog to them or inquiring by email. It can be expensive when you first get started as you will need to go
    out and get all your tools to actually do the craft.
