Fight Back Friday November 13th

Welcome to yet another Fight Back Friday! Today we’re bringing together a 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 Mr. Linky 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!

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.

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.

    I got a big bunch of kale in my CSA distribution and had to make kale chips. They were fabulous – and freshly harvested, organic kale is worlds better than anything thing I’ve ever had from the store.

    Turnips, radishes, eggplant, and grape tomatoes all turn into magical yumminess when you roast them in the oven. I shared some recipes today that actually had me falling in love with turnips. Go figure!

    Cooking is not my expertise. So I have a question about the dough. If I didn’t want to do the whole process in one day, could the dough be put in the fridge after it came to a rise to be used later? I LOVE me some pretzels!!!

    Hi Kristen – my article today is about being addicted to healthy shopping (and yes, that it’s a good thing) with resources for healthy foods. There is also another new article I’ve posted today directly following the shopping article about sprouted grains. Happy Friday!

    Did Swine Flu pop up as nature’s way of showing the imbalance and injustice of factory farming? Another big fat reason to eat meat from pastured animals!

    Two Thumbs up!! Ppl often are left with diseases from treating animals this way… viruses, dementia, and sometimes even cancer. And it amazes me how ppl run to get a vaccine, or a pill, but never think of fixing the root of the prob. Vaccines are administered in minutes, but ppl forget it didnt take a minute for this illness to arise. Prevention!!!

    I know I’m preaching to the choir, but a fun story to tell about industrial food and its marketing is at No. 31.

    Absolutely. I hate that I have a hard time finding quality meat sometimes. Even when I belonged to a (mostly)organic food delivery/coop, not all the poultry/beef/pork was pastured, free range, or organic. Eggs, too.

    If the gov’t is really concerned about the quality of meat, it needs to make it mandatory that farm animals be raised in humane, healthful ways that in turn result in healthful protein sources for those who aren’t vegans/vegetarians.

    That’s great! I’ve been having fun playing with stove popped popcorn – also a simple, fun and healthy snack.
