Fight Back Friday May 6th

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!

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.)

    HI Kristen,
    I shared my GF Coconut milk and two articles that I hope you like. I also posted my giveaway — hope that is OK>

    I am sharing a post I did this week on whether or not the American Heart Association is to blame, at least party, for the obesity epidemic.

    I finished reading Why We Get Fat, a book I am calling a must read for every individual on Planet Earth, and a passage I read towards the end really stuck with me. It really pissed me off actually.

    I am NOT one to get mad at all. I am very calm. I was calm about this but PISSED inside. Absolutely furious after I read what I read.

    Did you know that the AHA actually recommended candy in place of fat?!?!! I don’t know much about the organization but you would think SOMEONE would question this. I am really staring to wonder how we ever came to the conclusions that we came too? I kind of know now after I read Gary’s book but damn… I just still don’t really get it. We have some idiots living in this world. Some ignorant idiots.

    HRH Prince Charles gave a jaw-droppingly good speech at the Future of Food Symposium this week. I’ve excerpted from his speech and linked to the full transcript. This guy knows his stuff and calls America on the carpet repeatedly for our nonsensical food policies. I say, “Right-o!”

    I love the diversity of the posts this week! I’m sharing a simple Roasted Brussel Sprout recipe with Goat Cheese and Vidalia Onions. Roasting seems to be the way my family will eat them with the least complaints…well one still complained but 3 out of 4 isn’t bad!

    I am here in Minnesota for the Raw Milk Symposium dot org and thought I would give the issue a little historical perspective.

    John Q. Adams and his wife were raw milk renegades, just like some of us. Although, back then it was a staple in the American diet!
