Fight Back Friday March 19th

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.)

Sharing Is Rebellious! ENJOY.

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.

    You’ve heard about the problems with cooking grassfed meat, but grassfed meat actually has many cooking advantages over factory meat. This article describes some of them.

    Though I often blog about the importance of real foods for the many important ways it affects our bodies, today I decided to share about a homeopathic remedy that I’ve found invaluable as a parent. It’s helped our family out a number of times, and as I share in this post, it’s helped others I’ve used it for in the last couple of weeks, too!

    This week I was craving larb (a ground meat salad with origins in Southeast Asia), so I cooked it up with some ground pastured pork I had, and it was delicious. Carb-free, if that matters, very flavorful, relatively quick and easy to make. A great dish worth repeating.

    I contributed my exploration of traditionally-fermented Thai fish sauce (nam pla). It was quite an adventure to make it and while I can’t say I LOVE looking at it every day, I feel pretty proud of myself. :)

    Hi Kristen, as usual, better late than never! My entry this week is two interviews I did with close friends of mine who are former vegetarian/vegans and shared their stories of how real food has improved their health and changed their lives. Happy Friday!

    It’s my first time entering but I’m sending a post about why major health food stores are becoming a problem for us. To sum it up, they cater to the pseudo-healthy mainstream crowd, NOT the real food folks! It’s time we did something about that.

    I’m trying to be a food renegade. I live close to areas where all kinds of produce is grown but I have trouble finding it in stores. Most of it leaves the country. We only have farmer’s markets in the summer. Organic food is about 50% more expensive than the stuff grocery stores normally sell.

    At some point I’ll join in on the Fight Back Fridays. I look forward to reading in the mean time.

    You’re probably already familiar with cellulite suspect #1, but it might be hiding in places you didn’t expect (like fortune cookies??). I’d love to hear your best tips for avoiding this seemingly ubiquitous cellulite suspect!
