Fat Tuesday: October 25, 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 week 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 be open for links the entire 28 day challenge, until November 2, 2011. After that it will continue to serve as a resource.

    I shared my ‘recipe’ for apple butter that I stumbled upon. Hope it helps someone else use up apple peels!

  • Amanda @ Traditional Foods October 25, 2011, 2:47 am

    Thanks for hosting! I posted background on the Michael Schmidt hunger strike along with a call for donations. On a lighter note, I posted a recipe for curried pumpkin soup

  • Emily Bartlett @ Holistic Kid October 25, 2011, 3:14 am

    Hi Jill!  Thanks for hosting.  I’m sharing my list of dishes to take when visiting a family with new baby.


    Are you going to Dallas?  If so, looking forward to meeting you there.  🙂


  • Stanley @ Tender Grassfed Meat October 25, 2011, 4:17 am

    Thanks for hosting! My post this Fat Tuesday is appropriately about saturated fat. The misguided Danish legislature is taxing saturated fat, even healthy grassfed fat. But healthy saturated fat is a vital nutrient!

    This week, I’m sharing by far my most most visited, popular, and controversial post yet. It’s been shared by over 2,000 people on facebook in the two days since it’s been up. I was nervous to expose my beliefs, but I published why I think Susan G Komen for the Cure is a deceitful organization more interested in profits than a “cure.” So far, I have had mostly positive support from the natural health community. Come see what they are saying about this important issue!http://butterbeliever.com/2011/10/22/i-will-not-be-pinkwashed-why-i-do-not-support-susan-g-komen-for-the-cure/

    Oh man I just started my blog carnival on Tuesdays at Organically Thought because I thought Tuesdays were free. I followed a link on Monday Mania and saw that poster had linked back here too. Well I hope this doesn’t make us competition cuz I will loose for sure lol. And I hope it is ok that I linked to my blog carnival if not a removal will not hurt my feelings. Before I link it back here I would like to give you a chance to do it for your self. It isn’t often some one can say that lol. http://organicallythought.com/alimentary-tuesdays-blog-carnival

    I’m sharing an overview of an article in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar on nutrition. It’s pretty scandalous for a mainstream beauty magazine!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.

    Today I linked up a post titled,
    “Coping with Stomach Flu Symptoms (Why the BRAT diet may not be your best choice)”

    It explains why the BRAT diet is not the best option for healing stomach flu symptoms, and offers alternative choices for tender tummies.

  • Melissa @ Dyno-mom October 25, 2011, 5:59 pm

    This all looks so great! Thanks for hosting, Jill. This week I linked to my post on washing dishes. Yes, I know. Dishes? But really, cooking makes dishes and dishes make cooks sad. This post is all about motivating you to get in there and get the job done.

  • Linda October 25, 2011, 7:49 pm
