Fat Tuesday: November 8, 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!

    My post this week is about how satisfying real food
    is. Recently I had a real life experience which reminded me that factory food makes us eat too much, while real food satisfies our hunger.

    Real Food, Real Taste, Real Appetite

I look forward to the collection of ideas each week:) Today I have shared a recipe for DIY glass cleaner and a recipe for our $2 dinner plate.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share.  I posted an article about household food waste.  This is 3rd in a series on food waste in North America.  Why should you care?  It’s not just about whether or not you can afford it…

    Today I venture into the world of holiday parties and hors d’oeuvres with my recipe for Smoked Salmon & Herb Cheese Pinwheels. I serve them on my grain-free crackers, but you can certainly use your favorite cracker recipe with these. They are nutrient-dense and beautiful!http://www.ournourishingroots.com/2011/11/08/smoked-salmon-herb-cheese-pinwheels/http://www.ournourishingroots.com/2011/11/03/white-cheddar-and-chive-crackers-grain-free/

    Hi Jill, Thanks for hosting. I always love coming here and finding out what the real food community has been up to. There’s always such great recipes. I’m sharing a short little video that illustrates some of the scary things the USDA allows in our food. Perfect for anyone who is still sitting on the fence about whether to make the switch to real foods.
