Post image for Fat Tuesday: March 6, 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!

Hi Jill, I accidentally posted the wrong ‘name’ for #1 (Jen). I was going to reenter but it wouldn’t let me. Are you able to delete it so I can reenter it with the right name? So sorry.
I also posted Dried Cherries, Buying the right seeds for your garden, and a coconut cream concentrate giveaway! Thanks

My post this week is about how the best grassfed beef and the best organic (or the equivalent) vegetables come from wise farmers who improve their soil. Food grown on rich soil tastes better and contains more nutrients.

Great Soil Makes Great Meat and Great Vegetables

I have had a lot of questions about how to get enough carbs on GAPS, usually because someone has gone too low carb without realizing it and/or they have had some negative health symptoms crop up after 6 months or so on (low carb) GAPS.

GAPS is not low carb! I point out 8 ways to make sure you don’t dip too low in your carb intake on the GAPS diet!

What’s fresher than food straight from your garden? Making pots from newspaper is easy and frugal!

Happy Tuesday,

This week I am sharing a creamy vegan broccoli soup. Also, sharing a little about my recent Crohn’s flare, with some helpful links in the comments. And finally, at the end of this rather serious post, a funny video from one of my favorite ladies!

Have a great week.

Be Well,
