Fight Back Friday May 21st

Hi all. Are you a homeschooling parent hunting for a way to teach Nutrition that’s based on Real Food? Check out the Real Food Nutrition & Health book I made available last week!

Also, don’t forget to check out the new How To Cook Real Food course offered by Jenny at the Nourished Kitchen!

Welcome back to yet 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!

This week, I’m asking Should You Drink Coffee? And I’m sharing a recipe for a Versatile Broccoli Casserole (it can go low-carb if you substitute grated cauliflower, OR it can be a main course if you add in sausage). 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.)

Sharing Is Rebellious! ENJOY.

    A college professor has designed a class for his students using real food and traditional preparation methods as part of a “Global Perspectives” course. We should all take his lead!

    I’ve got two posts this week for submission. One is a kid-friendly dessert or snack: yogurt parfaits, and the other is a rebellious post about not introducing cow’s milk to your toddler at 12 months if you’re breastfeeding. The latter post has a linky for all vegetarian recipes and related food posts.

    Hi Kristen, thanks for hosting Fight Back Fridays! My post is about how to save money while you are in the kitchen by not wasting anything. I hope this provides some good tips for everyone!

    I posted about my frustration at having to explain organic nuances to my daughter, and the knee-jerk anti-organic reaction every time a new pesticide study is released (as it was this week).

    This week I am sharing a blog post that surrounds an article I found in the newspaper about farmers who grow over 40 greens in a greenhouse. They claim this is better than organic… I currently agree but would love your input! I encourage you to leave a comment so people can learn more about greenhouses and organic growing. Thanks!

    I’ve always wanted to try Scotch Eggs, a U.K. tradition that’s usually deep-fried. The recipe I’m sharing today is my healthier version — no bread crumbs, baked not fried, still really delicious. I also snuck in some history and references to great books. Enjoy!

    I shared a recipe for a Strawberry Goat Cheese Tart that was easily one of the best and easiest desserts I’ve ever made. I used farmer’s market strawberries and local goat cheese and it was amazing, even with store-bought cookies. (Hey, I didn’t want to turn on the oven!)

    Just wanted to say I’m a homeschooling mom too (we also use use a living book approach) and think it is VERY COOL that you have put this together. Unfortunately, my kids are a bit younger (lower and upper grammar) in your experience do you think younger kids would benefit from the book? I’m sort of thinking at this level we are better off taking a hands on approach visiting our CSA, shopping together, ect. What has your experience been teaching younger kids?

    It’s all about Popcorn this week. My teenagers go through alarming quantities of the stuff, and I think we’ve finally found a popper that makes us ALL happy – and relatively chemical free! Woo Hoo!
