Fight Back Friday October 9th


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.

    My post today is a pointer to a thoroughly enjoyable round-up for 20 food “rules” sent to Michael Pollan, the author of the Omnivore’s Dilemma. There are some fun, inspiring ideas in those little nuggets, and it’s really great to see people’s advice in their own words. Sweet, touching, nourishing…

    Hey everyone. This week I post a recipe for Congee (Rice Porrdige). It is a savoury rice dish that can be adapted as many ways as you can think of, plus its extremely frugal! This dish is quite similar in a way to risotto, so I have a question for you all, if/ when you have made risotto in the past what have been your favourite things to cook with it?
    Hope you enjoy my post.

    Today for Fight Back Friday I share two of my “The Natural Princess” videos about tomatillos. I had them at a restaurant and went on a quest to find a farm growing them locally. In the end, I found a wonderful farm with a rich family history that grows tomatillos and tons of amazing produce.

    Ethically-raised cattle spend their entire lives eating quality forage, not the byproducts of industrial ethanol production. Free from hormones, pesticides and antibiotics, traditional ranching is a sustainable, environmentally friendly practice, as is intended by God and nature.

    Evidence is very strong that grass-fed, grass-finished beef is lower in total fat and calories and significantly higher in vitamin E, beta-carotene, omega-3 fatty acid and CLA’s than animals raised in concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs).

    Far superior in taste, grass-fed beef is at its best when simply prepared using just a few ingredients..

    I DO feel bad for animals who are raised and slaughtered in factory farms. But when I discovered traditional foods I became at peace with the cycle of life. Animals on the farm where I get my meat and dairy really ARE the happy cows you see in farm coloring books! Everything is born, lives and dies. At my farm they do all three with dignity.
