Fat Tuesday: December 13, 2011

RFF Food Carnival

It’s that time of the week when real foodies come together for a food festival! Fat Tuesday is the official start 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, thank you for hosting Fat Tuesday :). This week I’m sharing the smoothie recipe I’ve been sipping on during my pregnancy! Its full of nutrients and fat soluble vitamins needed to grow a healthy baby :). I don’t particularly like eating fish roe, but I’ve found that I can add up to a tablespoon of it into my smoothie without tasting it!

    It’s back to basics for all the newbies, or just as a refresher for all of us.

    I can’t believe I forgot about Fat Tuesday! I found you some time ago but have been busy with other projects so haven’t been by in awhile..

    I thought I’d share a couple things if I may – a mango ginger banana bread recipe for one.

    And for any of you kind souls who love real food and earth friendly goodies I finally made a Facebook page for my blogs… trouble is I have no idea how to use FB. (I don’t even have a personal FB account if you can believe it. 🙂 If anyone would like to share a link to one of your posts please do. I don’t want to link bomb here but just take a look at the banana bread post and you can find me on the FB sidebar thingy do-hicky. 🙂

    Have a mighty fine Fat Tuesday!

  • Maria December 13, 2011, 6:42 pm

  • Laurieneverman December 14, 2011, 3:15 am

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.  Today I linked up a recipe for coconut oil fudge, a great, guilt free treat that requires no cooking and stores well in the fridge.  You can mix up a batch and have it around to help avoid not-so-healthy holiday foods.
