Fight Back Friday December 18th

Welcome to yet another Fight Back Friday! Today we’re bringing together a 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 Mr. Linky 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!

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.

    Glad Fight Back Friday is back – I was tired of defending the water use on our farm for grass fed beef. It’s normal to see people quoting statistics of up to 2800 gallons of water per pound of beef. While I understand feedlot beef is an entirely different “animal” literally from our rotationally grazed beef – I decided to see just how much water it takes on our farm to raise a pound of beef. The numbers are surprising :)

    Happy Friday,

    I figured it was the time of year when everyone had a wish list. This is my food related wish list–or at least those things that I have been thinking about right now–in no particular order.

    The connection between fungus and cancer — and many other serious conditions — has been one that has intrigued me greatly the past few weeks. Doug Kaufmann is the pioneer of this theory and the post I am sharing today is an introduction to him and his work. If any of you have been unable to solve a long term health issue, the fungal connection is one you may wish to consider. And Kristen — it’s GREAT to see you back!

    I got an email from a friend the other day about a local company doing its part to help end hunger in rural America. It struck me as odd and sad to learn that the place our nation gets its food from is often times short on food – a bit ironic. So today’s post shares Land O’Lakes efforts to help local rural communities – in fact they will donate one dollar for everyone who clicks on a banner on their site to local food shelves (The link is on the post if you want to chip in a buck by clicking)

    Yay! Thank you for Fight Back Fridays Kristen! My article is about the failing grade school lunches have finally received from the press – and that it’s not even up to the standards of the fast-food chains. Oh, and there’s an important petition to sign from Food Democracy Now! Please sign, and help make everyone aware of what goes on in the lunch room!

    Posted an unusual spiced tomato dish from the 1966 Woman’s Day Encyclopedia of Cookery. Designed as a side, over rice it makes a nice vegetarian main course. Enjoy, and thanks!

    Yay! I love Fight Back Fridays. Such great content from all these bloggers! Today I’m very pleased to post about a great local health foods store in Ohio that actually offers tons of nourishing foods. They are looking to expand their services to customers throughout the U.S. as well. Plus, readers from my blog get a special offer if they’re quick!

    Wild shiitake, maitake and porcini mushrooms are simmered in homemade vegetable stock with green garlic, onions, parsley, sherry and toasted barley and seasoned with fresh thyme, sea salt and black pepper. A drizzle of truffle oil seals the deal..

    “medicinal mushrooms have been shown to boost heart health, lower the risk of cancer, promote immune function, ward off viruses, bacteria and fungi, reduce inflammation, combat allergies, help balance blood sugar levels and support the body’s detoxification mechanisms”
