Fat Tuesday: September 20, 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!

    Hi Jill–  Posting a few quick and easy recipes.  One is a one pan dinner (yea! for quick clean up), one is a grain free and no sugar added cookie (great for school lunch boxes), and one is for ice cream (I have a bazillion frozen blackberries to use).  Thanks!

    Thanks for hosting, Jill.  Today I linked up a post on something no one wants to talk about, but everyone should – bowel movements.  Learn what’s healthy (and what’s not), and tips on how to get your body back on track:  http://commonsensehomesteading.blogspot.com/2011/09/things-were-embarrassed-to-talk-about.html

    I’m posting my current fav liver recipe – liver and beef stroganoff! It’s a great way to try liver if you’re a little unsure where to start. Enjoy! And thanks for hosting, Jill!

    Hi Jill,
    Thanks for hosting!
     I’m sharing my facial oil recipe that I make using essential oils, coconut oil, aloe vera and Cellfood. I’m also sharing a post on how to deal with coughing naturally with items you can find in most grocery stores as well as to what essential oils to use for what oils. So check out how you can use spices, fruit, and juices and make simple cough syrups and elixirs  at home.

    Hi Jill,
    I posted an introduction to the GAPS diet and a post on diet for someone who has cancer.
    Thanks very much for hosting.

  • Emily September 20, 2011, 5:49 am

    HI Jill – Thanks for hosting!  Eventually I will figure out how to post these properly.  My post should read “Carnitas” not “Emily Bartlett”!  Oh, well, the carnitas are super scrumptious, and I am still getting the hang of this!  🙂

  • Janelle September 20, 2011, 9:58 am

    Thanks for the opportunity to link up!  I also have a Recipe Roundup going on for the month of September.  If you have any gluten free AND frugal recipes to contribute, I would appreciate it.  It’s here:

    Thanks for hosting.  I’m sharing a post I did about soy.  Is it good or bad? Truth or hype? It’s probably nothing new to your readers, but it might be helpful to some.

    Thanks for the opportunity to share!

  • Andrea September 20, 2011, 2:11 pm
