Post image for Fat Tuesday: May 7, 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 post about using my time to save money – I could do more, but I don’t! And I’m ok with that. I also shared our Apple Spice Muffins.

I have two recipes this week. First, try my latest REAL FOOD 101 post, all about how to make yogurt dough. Yogurt dough is from Nourishing Traditions and is great for a variety of recipes, from pie crust to pizza crust to crackers. Plus, it’s soaked overnight, which is great!

Finally, with that yogurt dough I made a real food version of French Silk Pie, complete with whole cane sugar-sweetened whipped cream on top! You’re welcome :D

Hello….just found you through Heidi over at LightlyCrunchy!
I’m afraid I listed my name and not my site’s name –
Go Gingham {Stylishly Frugal Living}
Simple living that’s frugal fancy and fun!
Nice to meet you and thanks for the link up.


24 Andrea @Andreas Kitchen May 8, 2012 at 12:21 pm

I shared my recipe for Apricot Oat Crunchies. These cookies are gluten free, but this recipe can be made with “regular” flour too if you don’t have an issue with gluten. There are quite a few healthy ingredients in these cookies- dried apricots, dried coconut, oatmeal and cornflakes.
Thanks for hosting!


25 Amanda May 8, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Thanks for the link up! I was distracted by a rooting baby and left my name instead of the blog title under name for #105. Can you change it? If so its called Tummy Tamer Tea. Thank you!



26 Laurie May 8, 2012 at 3:49 pm

Thanks for hosting, Jill.

I just linked up a recipe for sourdough cookies, a better for you sweet treat.

30 Sarah @ My Sleepy Kitchen May 9, 2012 at 5:03 pm

Hi Everyone,
This week I’m sharing information about the health benefits of Kombu, a type of sea kelp, and how you can cook with it. Even if you don’t think you like seaweed, you might be suprised at how good (and un-seaweed-y) it tastes!
Thanks for hosting!


31 Sarah @ Real Food Outlaws May 10, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Thanks for hosting! I shared my soaked banana bread recipe. It’s a great way to use up extra milk kefir!



32 Emily @ Holistic Kid May 10, 2012 at 10:40 pm

Hi and thanks for hosting!

This week I’m sharing my post Maragrita? Margabucha!. You CAN avoid hangovers by drinking liquor with a raw, naturally fermented bevi. In this cocktail recipe, I use kombucha.
