Fight Back Friday May 7th

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 this week!

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 sharing the latest good news about urban farming legend Will Allen. (He was picked in Time’s top 100 influential people, AND given the key to the city of Milwaukee!) 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.

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.

    Grassfed meat is so filling that we often have leftovers. This week’s post has a traditional recipe for mushroom cream sauce that is great for reheating beef, lamb, bison, or ham.

    I’m having trouble getting Linky to work for me, but I’ll try again in a few minutes.

    In the meantime, my post this week is about grilled carrots… YUM! They are so good! All you do is parboil them, grill them, then brush with a honey-butter glaze. Check out my post for all the details: http://likeabubblingbrook.blogspot.com/2010/05/easy-grilled-carrots-with-honey-butter.html

    I’m having a problem with the link tool, too. I wanted to post about the “Two Angry Moms” movie and how its school-food message still resonates three years later (which is both good and bad): http://spoonfedblog.net/2010/05/03/two-angry-moms-still-too-true/

    I’ll check back to see if I can link later.

    TWO posts for me today! A review of The Cove and reflection on how it relates to industrial food production. It’s a MUST-SEE movie.

    Also, a run-down on some of the things I do in the morning as part of a healthy routine.
