Fat Tuesday: November 1, 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!

Last month I opened a Grain-Free food carnival linky in conjunction with my 28 day grain-free challenge. Hope to see some of your great grain-free recipes there! It will close November 2, 2011. After that it will continue to serve as a resource.

    I shared the easiest recipe ever…..egg drop soup with my own twist. We fell in love instantly!

    Hi Jill, I posted my recipe for a shrimp head stew and my shrimp head/shel broth.  Lots of yummy saturated fats — the good stuff!

    Hi, Jill! This week I posted my silly collection of odd-looking fruits and vegetables. While there are definitely some very naughty-looking produce pictures out there, these ones are family-friendly. 🙂


  • Debbie @ Easy Natural Food November 1, 2011, 5:00 am

    Hi Jill, I’m sharing my recipe for Butternut Squash Soup with coconut milk. Very tasty, and you can have fun making swirly patterns with the coconut milk 🙂


    Thanks for hosting!

  • Stanley @ Tender Grassfed Meat November 1, 2011, 5:33 am

    Hi Jill, I thought Fat Tuesday deserved a post on good fat. My post today covers how to add good fat to lean grassfed meat.

    Hi Jill!  Thanks for hosting and for featuring my post last week on great dishes to take to a family with a new baby.  This week I’m posting a recipe for Anna’s Earth Mother Stew… a.k.a. Lactation Stew – delicious whether or not you aim to make milk!  


  • Heather @Gluten-Free Cat November 1, 2011, 12:20 pm

    I’m juicing this week, so I’m linking up a Carrot Beet Juice recipe.  But I can’t wait to try those pumpkin pecan pie muffins!

  • Melissa @ Dyno-mom November 1, 2011, 2:15 pm

    Tanks for hosting us all again, Jill. This week I posted a link to a quick and easy breakfast I grew up with called atole. Sometimes it is nice to try something new and get out of the whole eggs or oats routine. I hope you stop by!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.  Today I linked up a post about improving your health by practicing gratitude:  http://commonsensehomesteading.blogspot.com/2009/11/practice-gratitude-to-improve-your.html

    All through the month of November, I’ll be posting about things that I am grateful for, a tradition that I started several years ago.  I find it to be a good reminder heading into the holiday season to focus on what’s really important.

  • Free Range Mama November 1, 2011, 6:15 pm

    Thanks for hosting!  I linked up a post about the very real problem of food waste in our country.  https://realfoodforager.com/2011/10/fat-tuesday-november-1-2011/

    Looking forward to reading though all these awesome posts!

    I shared my recipe for beef stew cooked in a pumpkin.  It’s good for you, delicious, and fun!  Thanks for hosting!

  • Judy@SavoringToday November 1, 2011, 7:12 pm

    Sharing my Minestrone Soup with Blue Cheese and Parmesan Meatballs — oh, so good when it’s cold outside.  Thanks for hosting!

  • Barb @ A Life in Balance November 1, 2011, 9:05 pm

    Thanks for hosting again! I shared a homemade sausage patty recipe this week. I’m seeing lots of good recipes to try for the fall.
