Fight Back Friday August 17th

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.

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!

I can’t wait to see what you all share!

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.

    Thanks for hosting! My post this week is about how eating healthy is now claimed to be a mental disorder. I was astounded by the “symptoms” of orthorexia. I was very interested in your post a few weeks ago: Am I an Orthorexic?

    Eating Healthy Is a Mental Disorder? Nonsense!

      I loved your post! I had heard of Orthorexia and had assumed it was basically a clarification of people with OCD specifically relating to food – that it was actually disabling for them. I had no idea the “diagnosis” was that vague! Crazy stuff.

        Yes, the only thing crazy here is the idea that trying to avoid poison and eat well is a mental illness. The symptoms are vague because the whole concept is ridiculous.

    i really wanted to share my dear USA post from tue, but it contains a lot of foul language, because well, the executive decision makers who know better are not doing better and strong language is necessary to describe how foul their actions are and how ridic it is that as a citizen i have to spend all my resources in undoing harm others have brought to my dear kids. so read that one at your own risk. apologies in advance if i’ve broken any carnival rules by sharing this in the comments. if you need to remove it, no hard feelings :) in my upcoming open letter series i will avoid the foul language.

    instead, i’m sharing an 8 minute interview where I answer 5 questions about how to transform picky eaters.

    have a fantastic weekend folks, find some fun even in these trying times. thanks for hosting!
