Fight Back Friday Sept 4th


Welcome to another Fight Back Friday, everyone! 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 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.

    This week’s Fight Back Friday piece is a plug for a great conference coming up on September 17, 2009 in New York City. Agriculture 2.0 is a first-of-its-kind event bringing sustainable ag and food entrepreneurs together with the money that can help move their ideas into reality. Please check it out and tell any entrepreneurs you know about it.

    Cheers,

    This is my first time so forgive any mistakes as I learn the ropes, but I am so glad to be a part of this discussion. My blog So what does farming have to do with the current health care crisis? meanders across the topic, touching on our festival in October, but ultimately we need to engage youth. We’re doing this 3 day festival and I’m hoping this cause will be introduced to a boatload of new people. It’s been too long that these food issues have been marginalized.

    This is my first time on Fight Back Fridays. I’m really excited to participate. My post is my weekly menu plan, which for the first time is geared towards SOLE food. I’m planning to add more posts over this week on why we started going in this direction, and how I plan to fit in into our lives. Thanks all!

    While the term SAD very appropriately describes the unhealthy Standard American Diet of nutrient-depleted, heavily-processed foods (so-called), there is abundant goodness to be had for little extra effort or expense.
