Fight Back Friday September 25th

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!

    I had to compromise a bit and not do everything homemade so that I didn’t go crazy trying to get things done (my kids are 5 and 3, so not a lot of time for cooking and cleaning!). But I will be making some things at home, including the ice cream (but not the cake per his request).

    Our big way to Fight Back, has been to grow our own herbs. We grow them organically, and love having fresh herbs at our fingertips when we cook.

    Each week I feature a different herb. I explore the history, how to grow it and how to use it. This week the herb of the week is Fennel.

    This year we have been experimenting with different “tea” herbs. The difference in flavor of fresh organic herbs and the commercial herbal teas is amazing. this is my first time linking up here at the Food renegade. hope you stop by!

    Happy Fight Back Friday! In this blog I argue point by point against a “scientific” blogger who claims that pasteurized milk is better than that oh so dangerous raw milk. Ugh! Keep your pseudo science off my kitchen table!! Hmph.

    I’ve been sick and in the hospital for 3 weeks – only to be sent home for six weeks NPO! I’m dreaming of amaing fall-themed flavors, smells, and tastes – none of which can be enjoyed by me at this point in time. But I couldn’t help but post a GREAT 1890’s era recipe for Ginger Cookies that are nothing quite like anything I learned to make in baking school! They’re different, but good! Enjoy! (For me, at least! LOL!)

    Bill C-6 is the bill that would over ride our Charter of Rights and enforce MANDATORY H1N1 Flu Vaccinations in Canada!

    Representative Ron Paul (R-TX) says it like this: “When we give government the power to make medical decisions for us, we, in essence, accept that the state owns our bodies.”

    I posted a Letter that I wrote to the Senate regarding proposed Bill C-6. It has PASSED parliament and 2 readings in the Senate. A third reading in the senate could make it Law.

    This Bill is unconstitutional and threatens Human Rights And Freedoms. The media is totally silent about this Bill. I have contacted them and they will not report on it.

    I believe that it is deliberately kept quiet until it is passed into law.

    Today’s post isn’t so much about one particular dish as it is a reminder to myself of why I choose to eat clean, healthy nourishing food.

    Earlier today I ate a cheeseburger & fries with the guys at a local joint. While the food tasted OK at the time, I knew I was in trouble less than an hour later when the industrial CAFO burger & potatoes fried in God-knows-what kind of unnatural hydrogenated oil together felt like a greasy, soggy bowling ball in my gut. Back at work, I resisted the urge to crawl under my desk & sleep it off.

    It is readily apparent why America is so sick.

    At home this evening, I knew I needed to make up for the nutritionally empty & otherwise damaging lunch, so I gathered up what I could from the garden, pantry and fridge and made this Antidote Dinner Salad..
