Fight Back Friday April 23rd

Don’t forget to enter for your chance to win a FREE wellness consultation from Joanna Runciman of Actual Organics, along with a sample pack of Miessence Organic skin care products! The contest ends this Sunday.

Welcome back to yet 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.

If you want to participate but aren’t sure how, please read these guidelines for how Fight Back Fridays will work.

Please be courteous and use your BEST blog carnival manners! In the very least, that means remember the two most important things you can do:

  1. Share a relevant post from your blog with us using the McLinky Widget below (don’t just link to your blog’s home page).
  2. In your post, be sure to link back to this post (not the Food Renegade home page) so that your readers can have access to all the information and encouragement we’ll be sharing.

Please also feel free to make use of any of the banners below by saving the image to your desktop then uploading it to your own server. (You don’t have to use them, but they’re there for you!)

If you don’t have a blog but are interested in joining the conversation, you can leave your comments below!

This week, I’m sharing a recipe for Easy Chocolate Pudding that’s optionally dairy-free. I can’t wait to see what you all share!


Fight Back Friday Banners

PLEASE NOTE: The smaller banners are also available as badges/buttons for your sites over on my sidebar so that you can sport your Real Food Lovin’ Pride and inspire others to join us in the Real Food Revolution. Just copy the code and paste it into your sidebar. (Again, you don’t have to use them to participate in the carnival.)

Sharing Is Rebellious! ENJOY.

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.

    I’d always wondered what the conventional producers argued, and after going to an organic vs. conventional debate, I learned! I shared the summary.

    Many of us in Wyoming would like the ability to purchase locally produced food, such as raw milk, without government interference. As of today, that is not possible. With your support- by signing an online petition- we could have a better chance at changing the current legislation. Visit my post for more information and to hear what I thought of my first experience at participating in a meeting of our state legislatures.

    Food Activists, we need to draw a line in the sand. The Government is attacking the sacred relationship between a farmer and his herd, the farmer and his patrons.

    Our food rights are under seige, The Wall the state is demanding Scott Trautman build is where we need to take a stand.

    My contribution to today’s carnival is Scott, Don’t Build That Wall!

    I posted a recipe for gluten and dairy free chicken fried steak. It was someone else’s recipe (proper credit given on my blog, of course), but I tweaked it a bit. It was super yummy!

    An economical, easy, healthy, and delicious whole grain tortilla . . . it is a weekly staple at our house.

    Thanks for dropping by Notes from the Cookie Jar and participating in Food Revolution Friday! I really liked your tips-never thought of putting it quite that way to kids before.

    I love raw carrots, not so much cooked ones. :)

    Shared lact0-fermented pickled cayenne that is deliciously spicy! Great for all those extra peppers that will come in the summer.

    Stopping by from Food Revolution Friday. I’m going to read back over your posts. I have a little "picky eater" in training. We just keep re-offering food that he says he doesn’t like just in different ways. Last night he ate brocolli….yay!

    My mother and I made Pumpkin Coconut Banana Walnut “Bread” this morning… I will be posting the recipe on my new blog on Monday so I will post it here then too!

    It goes have rolled oats in it… but if you take those out then you have a primal/paleo, gluten free, grain free, wheat free, etc. “bread”!!

    I am very much a texture person. I don’t like things due to texture, rarely is it the taste.

    Great ideas! I think you are right on with the texture thing. My husbands mom used to overcook veggies so he was pleasantly surprised at my al dente way of cooking them. Roasted veggies are my absolute fav, my kids fav too! Roasting veggies brings out a wonderful, savory flavor.

    I hate onions, but I hate making my kids eat things I will not eat. I decided (and signed the petition) that I will eat onions. Part of what I am doing to help that is to cook through a cookbook, with a rule that states "I cannot omit the onions". Thanks for this great challenge!
