I am a passionate advocate for REAL FOOD -- food that's sustainable, organic, local, and traditionally-prepared according to the wisdom of our ancestors. I'm also an author and a nutrition educator. I enjoy playing in the rain, a good bottle of Caol Ila scotch, curling up with a page-turning book, sunbathing on my hammock, and watching my three children explore their world.

Welcome to another Fight Back Friday! Today we are bringing together another collection of recipes, tips, anecdotes, and testimonies from members of the Real Food Revolution.

Who are they? Why, they’re the Food Renegades. You know who you are — lovers of SOLE (Sustainable, Organic, Local, and Ethical) food, traditional food, primal food, REAL food, the list goes on. I believe that by joining together, our influence can grow, and we can change the way America (and the industrialized world) eats!

So, let’s have some fun.

This month, I’m giving away a Breville OV800XL Smart Oven 1800-Watt Convection Toaster Oven with Element IQ to one of you. I adore my toaster oven! Not only is it an excellent and easy way to re-heat leftovers, it’s a great way to keep my kitchen cool when baking during the summer months.

Is Your Cinnamon Real?

Fake Cinnamon vs. Real Cinnamon

A lot of folks have made a hubbub about whether or not your cinnamon is real. Their claim is that Ceylon cinnamon is the only true cinnamon, and that Cassia (or Saigon) cinnamon is fake. They are missing the point. The truth is, both belong the same family of plants (and even the same genus — cinnamomum). And both are similar although the taste is somewhat different. That said, I do believe there’s such a thing as fake cinnamon, and it can impact not only your measure of culinary delight, but also your health.
