Fight Back Friday October 23rd

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 happened upon today’s topic in such a funny way. I really was eating dinner trying to figure out what I was going to write about and wasn’t coming up with anything. Then I realized it was staring me in the face — my dinner! So, I wrote about heritage turkeys!

    Hi Kristen

    Today I share my opinion editorial in response to the blanket condemnation of ground beef that appeared in the New York Times. My oped ran in Lancaster Farming a widely read farming newspaper.

    This week, my post is about Stevia. Is it a traditional medicinal or a modern pseudo-food? Is this “natural” sugar substitute safe? How do you use it?

    I’m so excited! I’m starting to get some reader comments from other people who suspect they have fluoroderma –a skin condition caused by fluoride consumption. My blogging life is now complete (and I’m just getting started!). My post this week is about my sordid history with acne medications, namely Accutane and Proactiv.

    Thanks for hosting another great Fight Back Friday event!

    This is my first time participating in Fight Back Friday – Katie at Kitchen Stewardship told me about it. So glad she did.

    I’m sharing a homemade granola bar recipe that includes flax, oats, figs, and walnuts. Not only do they taste great but they’re full of superfoods.

    The other day after returning from a fun trip to the dentist I started wondering if there were any natural toothpastes since most “regular” tooth pastes contain so many added chemicals. So I did a little search and found a company called Vita-Myr – I was blown away by their testimonials and their background story.

    The short story is people have been reporting that they have eliminated periodontal disease (gum disease), gingivitis, cold sores, cavities and even avoided colds and flues. We’ve been trying the toothpaste and mouthwash for a few weeks so my last post is about our experience as well as their background story and why these products work so well.

    Whoops! This is my first attempt at joining Fight Back Fridays and I messed up the post! I should have added “Health Benefits of Raspberries” after my name. The post is about our homegrown raspberries and what I do with them, along with health benefits of both the fruit and leaves.

    As a kid, my Mom would make this amazing apple cake – but only when the fresh crop of apples came out. I used to think it must be really hard since she reserved it for once a week – but the truth of the matter is that it’s a cinch – and completely delicious!
