Fat Tuesday: December 27, 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,

    This week I submitted a new creation: from-scratch gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, no bread, GAPS legal, Chestnut dressing. I tried it out at Thanksgiving and finally got it right at Christmas. The holidays may be over but it’s still a great winter dish. I hope you like it!http://theliberatedkitchenpdx.com/recipes/chestnut-stuffing/
    ps – I just found your comment on last week’s yogurt post in my spam folder! Whoops! Thanks for the note :)-Joy

    With snow and ice on the ground in so many places, I’ve posted about the dangers of using salt, baking soda and chemical ice melters to plants, people, pets and planet. Instead there are safe alternatives, including a “recipe” for homemade window de-icer.


  • Amanda @ Traditional Foods December 28, 2011, 5:39 am

    Thanks for hosting! I shared a post on roasted vegetables, including quite a few ideas on how to use them.

  • Chickpeas December 28, 2011, 11:38 am

    Thanks for this task. It is really exciting that all will share different types of recipes here with different flavours & the best thing of this festival is that no artificial things are allowed, all have to be pure, herbal & natural. Recently, chocolate peanut butter bark has been shared & it is delicious. Thanks for starting this food festival for enjoyment of holidays & greetings to all who shared their recipes here.
