Fight Back Friday October 16th

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!

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.)

    I don’t know if beer can be considered Real Food, but for those who have Celiac Disease (an intolerance to gluten) and enjoy a good brew now and then I recently tried a gluten free beer made from sorghum and rice. Mighty tasty.

    Frank Plugoff, a new contributor to Farm to Table, stops in with a breathtaking essay on an experience he had in the Czech Republic where he was privy to an annual village hunt in a small sylvan village. Everyone in the village does their part and shares in the bounty of the nearby forest. Permaculture? Maybe, but it is a beautiful thing to behold either way and I couldn’t NOT share it with all of you. Wishing you all a wonderful and happy weekend!

    Hey, Mrs. Julie. I didn’t know the answer to your question, so I went digging. TECHNICALLY, the answer is no because it’s basically just fancy sugar.

    It’s on the list of "foods to avoid" at Paleo Diet ( and forbidden foods (so foreboding!) at this link –

    But… I had 2 teaspoons, which is such a tiny amount, I deem it "OK."

    I’ve never been a big pancakes and waffles person… but every once in a while, I get a craving. The recipe I’m sharing today is grain-free and very, very, VERY delicous. Enjoy!

    My post is just about some baking I did where I accidentally used less sugar. I also pre-measured the dry ingredients for pancakes and cornbread so it will be more convenient to make them. So long, Bisquick (not that I’ve used that in a while, but now I’m not even tempted!).
