Fat Tuesday: December 6, 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!

    Thank you so much for hosting! I shared a Creamy Herb Chicken Salad w/ Pomegranate recipe. The combo of the herbs, sweet crunch of the pomegranate arils and the creaminess of the dressing (made from ground sprouted sunflower seeds) is so yummy. Thanks again.http://recipestonourish.blogspot.com/2011/12/creamy-herb-chicken-salad-w-pomegranate.html

    Gotta love Fat Tuesday 🙂 I shared my Kid Approved Green Smoothie-great for adults too!

  • Stanley @ Tender Grassfed Meat December 6, 2011, 2:27 am

    Thanks for hosting. My post this week is about one of the questions I get asked most “What is different about grassfed beef?” In this post I talk about some of the differences and Why Grassfed Meat Is Better.

  • Stacy Makes Cents December 6, 2011, 2:41 am

    Jill, thanks for your reminder email. 🙂 I’m always looking for it now. 

  • Melissa @ Dyno-mom December 6, 2011, 3:40 am

    I am looking for moms in Denver who want to get together and show our children the “Nourishing Our Children” presentation. Hope you can come!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.  Today I linked up a poem that highlights many of the injustices that have been done to people who are working to provide real food.

    This post is dedicated to:

    Quail Hollow Farm,
    who had their Farm-to-table meal raided by a government goon who forced
    them to destroy the food by pouring bleach all over it, including the
    meat that wasn’t UDSA labeled.

    The Stower Family
    who had their food club raided (they spent six hours – with their
    children – held at gunpoint) and their private food stores confiscated –
    while the owner’s husband was serving active duty in Iraq.

    The folks at Rawsome (and other raw milk sellers), who have been repeatedly harassed (sometimes at gunpoint), for selling clean, safe food.


  • Amanda @ Traditional Foods December 6, 2011, 5:01 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted a recipe for quinoa pomegranate salad.

  • Debbie @ Easy Natural Food December 6, 2011, 6:34 am

    Hi Jill, I always look forward to Fat Tuesday! I’ve linked up my Celery Root and Carrot Soup recipe, plus I’m putting in a good word for winter produce with my Sunday at the Farmer’s Market post. Thanks for hosting.


  • Marina Bershadski December 6, 2011, 2:40 pm

    i am sharing a recipe for a layered liver “cake” – great way to eat your liver and get that vital B12 nutrient!

  • Jessica @ Delicious Obsessions December 6, 2011, 3:15 pm

    Thank you for hosting! I shared my how-to post and NT’s recipe for homemade chicken stock. I don’t think anything tastes better than homemade stock! 🙂

  • Hannah December 6, 2011, 3:50 pm

    Thanks for hosting Jill! I linked to my review and giveaway of a BottlesUp Glass water bottle. They’re great and I’m so excited to be doing that. 🙂

  • Meghan December 6, 2011, 4:53 pm

    I shared my post about real food that I buy at Sunflower Farmers Market, a natural grocery store chain. I hope it helps someone looking for real food resources.

  • Christine December 6, 2011, 5:02 pm

    Today I am sharing a simple and delicious recipe for buttermilk biscuits.  Make these instead of opening that can of Pillsbury crescents for your Christmas dinner!

  • Beyond The Peel December 6, 2011, 5:13 pm

    Good morning Jill. I love all the great recipes that everyone brings to the table on Tuesdays. I’m sharing my protein brownie recipe. I hope you have a great week.

  • Beck December 6, 2011, 8:35 pm

    Good afternoon! I love this blog hop – lots of great recipes! Just in case anyone reads all the way down here: I MEANT to write Rice Pudding… but what I wrote is “Rice Pizza” (hmmm interesting combination).

  • Sellzey123 December 6, 2011, 11:09 pm

    I shared the second post in my mini-series on ethical shopping.

  • Dori December 7, 2011, 6:43 am

    This week I’m sharing a recipe for Homemade Chicken Stock. It seems everyone has their own way of making chicken stock, so I’ve shared a few notes on my method as well as some fun facts about the nutrition of stock.

  • Tracey @ ControltheChaos December 7, 2011, 7:31 am

    Hi!  I found you the roundabout way through Frugally Sustainable, and I’m happy to say I’m your newest follower.  Thanks for the link-up.  I’ll be participating regularly, as we cook real food and I often blog about it on my own site:  http://chaospatrol.blogspot.com

  • Kendahl @ Our Nourishing Roots December 7, 2011, 11:26 pm

    This Crispy Almond-Crusted Mahi Mahi recipe is one that I have been making regularly for over a year now since it is so popular at my house.  I used to make it with sprouted flour, but now I do almond flour to make it GAPS-legal.  Either way is scrumptious!  


  • Paula @ Whole Intentions December 8, 2011, 10:34 pm

    Why Whey and How to Make it is my simple directions for making healthy whey from yogurt rather than the powdered ‘stuff’ from the stores.

    I also added our families favorite homemade concoction to staying healthy this cold and flu season. We bring it with us everywhere: Want to Stay Healthy? – Bring On the Heat!

    Thanks for hosting!

  • Paula @ Whole Intentions December 8, 2011, 11:12 pm

    Couldn’t help but add my Sugar-Free, Candida Diet Ice Cream – it’s melt in your mouth delicious!
