Fight Back Friday December 3rd

Welcome back yet again 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!

Today I’m sharing about how to make creative grilled cheese sandwiches everyone will love!

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

    To keep with the grilled sandwich theme – I am sharing one of our favorites “Monte Cristo”. I make ours with sourdough bread, butter, turkey or chicken from free-range birds and organic cheese.
    Thanks for hosting Fight Back Friday!

      I *love* Monte Cristo sandwiches. I always put a thin layer of raspberry preserves in the sandwich, though. Something about those flavors really mingles well with raspberry.

    I’m sharing a delightful curry made with whole spices. Cooking with whole spices give dishes such a beautiful flavour. This is one of my favorite recipes.

    Thanks for hosting Kristen!
    I have a guest post on my blog today – Naf Hanau, a ritual slaughterer and butcher, explains the process of slaughtering kosher meat and why it is so difficult to get sustainable meat for kosher consumers.

    I’m sharing my wish list for the FDA. In a perfect world, we’d be able to make informed decisions about the foods we buy — even the “all-natural,” “organic” ones!

    That grilled cheese is calling my name…

    Thanks for hosting, Kristen!

    Hi there!

    This week I’m sharing a link to what I call my Urban Fermentation Project – a challenge I’ve created for myself to try a new fermented food every week until my whole list is complete – it’s like my little farm on my kitchen counter, since I don’t yet have a back yard. I hope you enjoy!

    I posted two things: One is a post about how hard it is for us to regain our health while watching our family members suffer with disease we know could be healed by Healing Foods and Whole Nutrition.

    And one is a recipe for Spaghetti Squash Meat Pie!!

  7. says

    Wow, AndreAnna’s post on watching family members suffer looks like something that could interest all of us! Must check that out for sure. Thanks for hosting, Kristen. I voted for you in the Austin blog contest! I’ve linked up my Corn and Butter Bean Casserole that I usually only make during the holidays or on special occasions. It’s a favorite and comfort food for sure. :-)

    Awhile back I had done a post on Vita Coco Coconut Water, and as the cyber geek I am I noticed that Amazon is having a Lightning Week Cyber Deal on the variety 12 pack right now – just though I’d share the post and the news. :) Happy Friday!

    Thank you, Kristen! I’m a little late on the ball today. My blog and podcast interview with Neal Foley focuses on raising rabbits on a homestead. Did you know that one rabbit trio will produce as much meat in one year as a steer would in two? Neal is a great guy and we also talked about our English Shepherd farm collies. I get my first rabbits Sunday. What fun!

    A little slow in getting here, but shared my post for sourdough buckwheat pizza. Though my sourdough was not gluten-free, this recipe can easily be adjusted for a gluten-free diet. The buckwheat gave it a nice flavor and this is an easy recipe for those times when your day gets by without a supper plan, but you do have a couple of hours for pizza dough to rise. Thanks for hosting, Kristen!
