Fight Back Friday December 4th

Welcome to yet another Fight Back Friday! I hope you all had a Happy Thanksgiving last week, and hope you didn’t mind taking a break from the carnival. 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!

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.)

    My post is just a recipe I came up with the other day. I tried it again tonight, but with a double batch and it was yummy again.

      In fact, my little boy just came downstairs to see what I was doing since I’m not playing trains with him. So I told him I was sharing the recipe and he said they were “a snap” and I asked him what that means and he said because “they were a snap to make and they are so yummy they are gone in a snap.” Too cute!

    I’m sure you’re pretty tired of Thanksgiving posts by now, but I’m a procrastinator. My post is about my very first Real Food (and all local) Thanksgiving! Come see where I got the groceries, how we made it all, and a photo or two.

    I forgot to mention it in the link above, but I made a fabulous mushroom and thyme tartlet for this year’s Thanksgiving feast. Using a lard pie crust and a variety of mushrooms, as well as your favorite home made beef broth this is a fabulous savory treat!

    Happy Eating and hope everyone is staying warm!

    I’ve been surprised that there are still lots of people who either have no clue what a free radical is or seem to think they aren’t real, so this week I wrote about what they are and what they can do. It’s a more serious post but I feel that the damage free radicals can do is serious business for everyone. Best part? The best defense is just so very simple….good solid nutrition!

    I love your blog. I have one suggestion, though. ;-) I live out in the mountains, with no affordable internet options. The only way to get internet is to take my laptop with me when I go into town for errands, and log on for free at Barnes and Noble, where I open as many webpages in as many tabs as my computer can stand, then read them all back at home. When I find blog I love, like your, I’ll open as many pages as I can, but I’m limited as to how many tabs I can open before my computer locks up. When someone has their blog set up like yours, with just short blurbs of each post, rather than the full post, it means that instead of each tab I open having multiple posts for my reading pleasure, I can only read one post per tab. Kind of a bummer when I’m limited to around twenty tabs, and can only get on the internet once every week or two. Very sad! I know others might disagree, but I love to see blogs with a month or more worth of posts on each page, with a “previous entries” button at the bottom. It also helps for skimming through posts when you’re only interested in a few of the categories on a blog…you don’t have to waste time going from one page to another every time you want to read a post. Just a thought for those of us that are broke and in the boonies. Thank you for the great blog posts!
