Fat Tuesday: February 21, 2012

Fat Tuesday: February 21, 2012 post image

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! Today it’s the REAL THING so link up your best posts!

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!

    Jill, thank you for being our hostess!

    I shared information on planning your graden, including tips on how to minimize weeding and maximize your space. Also, I added a post about whether bpa- plastic is really so great like they claim it is.

    Thanks for hosting Jill! I’ve included my post for Coconut Pecan Frosting. My non-GAPS husband and son loved it. I never dreamed I’d be able to have German Chocolate Cake with Coconut Pecan Frosting again, but now I can! 🙂 http://gapsdietjourney.com/2012/02/recipe-coconut-pecan-frosting-gaps-legal/

  • Joy @ The Liberated Kitchen February 20, 2012, 9:25 pm

    I shared our Homemade Beef Jerky recipe! It’s great for packed lunches, busy afternoons, and late night snacks and the kids love love love it.

    Happy Fat Tuesday… For Real. Heading to the city to enjoy the festivities and saw my favorite blog (you) while heading out. Happy Mardi Gras!
    By the way, made an almond flour brioche, shaped it like a king cake, with coconut palm sugar drizzle. Better than any white flour, white sugar king cake that I have ever had!

    • Nicole February 21, 2012, 7:36 am

      sorry, not almond flour, but gluten free. in a rush to get out of the door, not thinking correctly this early in the am. :}
