Fight Back Friday March 12th

Welcome to yet another Fight Back Friday! Today we’re 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!

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.)

    This week, I hope to draw everyone’s attention to pending food safety legislation that threatens the very survival of small farmers, artisan food producers, CSAs, small processors, and more… unless you contact your Senators… Learn more at Farm to Table!

    My post is on how the Senate bill (S. 510) will do nothing to improve food safety, as it promotes burdensome paperwork, not inspections. The paperwork and record keeping it will require is so extensive that many small farmers may be forced out of business. Worse yet, S. 510 would give the FDA complete control over how food is raised, allowing them to require anything they want in the name of “safety.” This bill must be modified to exempt the small farmer, or defeated.

    I’ve posted a recipe for pumpkin raisin muffins made with sprouted wheat flour. They are sweetened with maple syrup, but they aren’t too sweet. I’m always trying to find snacks I can send with our son to school. These muffins use lots of good butter and eggs and the sprouted wheat helps us absorb more nutrients.

    I finally tackling the D-word. Writing about diet has been such a challenge for me, but I know it is the most essential piece of the cellulite puzzle. So I’m starting with baby steps. After reading Eat Fat, Lose Fat by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, this post is about the two themes from the book that tie into cellulite.

    New York City schools have banned homemade foods from their bake sales. You can buy Doritos to resell, but a homemade slice of banana bread? Nope. Come ready why and meet the Food Renegade who is fighting this absurd policy.

    Thanks for taking some of the mystery out of bok choy. I always see it at the grocery store (though NEVER that size!) but I’ve been intimidated to give it a shot.

    I’ve never cooked with fresh Bok Choy so this picture is totally incredible to me! I’ve only had baby bok choy which is more tamable for me and I love it!

    I will say, never been able to make it like Grandma though.
