Fight Back Friday October 30th

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.)

    It’s fall and we actually have locally grown squash in Texas. The difference in flavor and texture is incredible. Even my husband, who didn’t like squash when I met him, was eating this right out of the oven with nothing on it. I almost fell over in shock! I rarely eat pasta – in this dish the squash acts as pasta and it’s topped with a lovely tomato saffron sauce.

    Thanks so much for hosting.

    The China Study is at the heart of the vegan movement, but it includes a lot of valuable information for the Real Food movement, as well. It’s worth a read if you have the time. But if you don’t, here’s my take on 7 reasons even the most devout Real Food advocate should love The China Study by T. Colin Campbell. Thanks!

    My contribution today is a piece of commentary I left on the PETA web site (that was deleted, by the way) and the response I received from the the Correspondent Assistant, Karen Dickerson. I’d like to publicly thank Ms. Dickerson for her response; it was definitely a great inspiration for an important article.
