Fight Back Friday December 23rd


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.

    This week I am sharing my gluten-free yule log / buche de noel. My family has been making it for 50+ years and I’ve made it real food appropriate ;) I’ve been making this gluten-free version for a few years now – it’s tried and true! I am going to make a grain-free version this week as well. Thanks for hosting!!!

    This week I posted the fourth in our Celiac Testing Mythbusting series. People assume their doctor will know whether gluten could be a problem and how to get good testing results… but that’s not necessarily so! http://theliberatedkitchenpdx.com/physical-health/celiac-testing-myth4-doctor-knows-best/

    This post also contains a link to our new post on Making the Most of Your Doctor Visit. http://theliberatedkitchenpdx.com/basics/making-the-most-of-a-doctor-visit/

    Thanks for hosting, Kristen! This week I’m sharing a my experience using soap nuts for the first time. I wasn’t sure if they could clean sticky clothing and dirty cloth diapers, but they did! I’m also giving away a few free samples to 3 people who want to try them out :)

    Thank you, Kristen, for hosting! This week I am sharing a quick dry brining method that I used for Thanksgiving. It turned out so well, I’m repeating it for our Christmas dinner. It’s great for people (like me) who wait till the last minute to do things that usually are better when done in advance. If your turkey isn’t overly large (mine’s 14 lbs), it’s not too late; even if your turkey is frozen solid!
    Merry Christmas everyone!

    For Christmas coming up over the weekend I am making these peanut butter cups that I made with cocoa butter and honey. They are GAPS-legal! And you won’t feel sick after you eat one during the holiday season.

    The PB cups at our house are going into stocking in place of store-bought candy.
