Fat Tuesday: March 27, 2012

Fat Tuesday: March 27, 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.

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!

    My post this week counters the fear induced by the latest scare tactic study against red meat.

    Enjoy your mouthwatering, real food prepared the traditional, healthy way like Weston A. Price teaches!

  • Laurie March 27, 2012, 1:15 pm

    Hey Jill! Thanks for hosting!

    I think you’ll like this week’s entry. I’ve post on how to grow your own stevia from seed, and use it to make your own green stevia powder and two types of stevia extract (water based and alcohol based). This can be a great money saver for those who are looking to use less sugar and avoid artificial sweeteners.


  • Vicky March 27, 2012, 1:59 pm

    Hi Jill! I’ve shared my grain free roasted hazelnut and chocolate chip cookies tonight, whilst I used chocolate chips in these cookies there is an option for using cacao chips for those people who want to avoid all traces of refined sugar.

    Have a lovely week!

  • Chara S March 28, 2012, 1:39 am
