Fight Back Friday September 11th

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!

    My post this week is the recipe that we created last winter when we realized we had a lot of tomatoes in the freezer. Now that we have tomatoes in the garden, we’re making it fresh. Creamy heirloom tomato soup is delicious, quick, and easy — and it’s pretty, too!

    This is my first time on Fight Back Fridays though I’ve been reading them. I’ve been working on integrating the concepts of traditionally made food (lacto-fermenting rather than using vinegar) and the dietary concepts based on the energetics of food in Traditional Chinese Medicine. This week’s post is one of my first musings on these ideas.

    I found a new great cookbook recently, Tender Grassfed Meat. It’s based on Weston Price ideas, has wonderful recipes and I posted a review.

    Happy Friday!

    Coconut, banana, and chia seeds is all you need to make a tasty “tapioca” pudding that can be eaten for dessert or breakfast without guilt! I hope you’ll try chia seeds soon if you haven’t already.

    Recent months have brought astounding changes to our family, with regard to food allergies. For many years we have eaten primarily whole, real foods – but we avoided certain foods (gluten, eggs, and dairy) because of known or suspected food allergies. Earlier this year, I was inspired to take a second look at the Weston A. Price Foundation and the book Nourishing Traditions (whose author, Sally Fallon, is the president of the WAPF). We were intrigued by the ideas presented and felt that we should give traditional food preparation methods a try. In this post, I share the astounding changes in our family resulting from this switch to traditional food preparation methods.

    Hey all, I hope you don’t mind me sharing two posts today, but I am in a fighting spirit!

    First is my defense of John Mackey, Whole Foods CEO, seems some folks want him on the chopping block for having a thought or two. How un-American!

    The second is an expose on the E-coli Spinach outbreak in California. And it wasn’t the wild boar. This one is very important to get the word out about. Wildlife and their habitat are targeted for destruction by food safety regulators. And, they are the real culprits. If you care about animals and the environment, you gotta read this!

    This week I have been attending the first annual Slow Money Alliance National Gathering, locating in Santa Fe, NM.

    The Slow Money Alliance is founded on the principles of re-thinking our financial goals so as to support community – keeping things local, working to put money back into the local economies, helping support other local businesses etc.

    Much of the discussion is centered around local food economies and this morning’s panel discussion was focused on the Northern New Mexican food system.

    My post is a summary of some of the more interesting points with a bit of my own opinions and musings thrown in!

    Sorry, I didn’t have time to leave my link description this morning. My blog – Are you eating Franken-foods? includes a Podcast interview with Jeffrey M. Smith. What you don’t know about the GMOs in your food could very well be hurting you! It includes a call to action, something Food Renegades should be used to.

    Time was when I’d come home at the end of the work week and just pull out a frozen pizza or microwave dinner and plop down in front of the TV.

    Not anymore. Even if I don’t much feel like cooking, there isn’t anything here to work with but whole, fresh ingredients. Tonight’s lazy meal, then, was a very simple and comforting plate of Texas-style bacon and eggs.

    The TV? Gave it to a neighbor years ago. Gotta’ give yourself a fighting chance :-)
