Fight Back Fridays

Well, fellow Food Renegades, today is the day! We are bringing together a collection of recipes, tips, anecdotes, and testimonies — each from a lover of Real Food. It’s my personal hope that this carnival will unite many of us coming from within different circles of the Real Food Revolution so that our influence can grow, so that 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.

    Hi Kristen,

    Thank you for stopping by today. I couldn’t find how to email you on your site :) so I thought I would leave a comment.

    I entered that post in your Mr. Linky… I didn’t put in the link back to you yet. I didn’t know about your site until today.

    But hopefully I’ll have time to look around tomorrow and set up the links, etc…

    I just wanted to let you know that I saw your comment and appreciated the invitation to link.

    I’ll be back…

    Lainie — I should set up a Contact page, shouldn’t I? I’ve got my email address in the Sidebar under “Contact Me,” but it gets lost in all the clutter. I’d been leaning towards doing this for a while, but you’ve provided the final motivation to just do it! I loved reading your testimony, and I’m glad you’re choosing to participate. :)

    Well I made a few post lately about Nourishing Traditions and healthy food in Danish .
    In Denmark, Weston A Price org. is almost unknown
    so I thought it would be important to try to get more Danes interested especially cause the fatfobia is widespread -lately we`ll have a new tax on saturated FAT !!!!! :(
    Normally I write more about doing Low carb/high fat :)

    Well, I botched the Mr. Linky thing, it being my first time using that particular interface. My link says only “Dana,” though it leads to some musings about the new book Righteous Porkchop.

    Lately, I’ve been feeling somewhat discouraged in my efforts to eat ethically, but the struggle continues. And, its certainly fun to read what other folks are doing.

    Dana — Don’t worry! Next time you’ll do it w/o a hitch! Thanks for sharing.

    Annie @ Hip Organic Momma — I really enjoy your posts. Always so informative! Thanks for participating. We’ll be hosting a No-GMO challenge in the not-too-distant future. So keep your eyes peeled!

    Joanna — Nah, you’re right on track. I asked for anecdotes, and yours is about as honest a rant as they come! It really is a struggle to eat good food when you constantly have junk paraded in front of your face. :)

    My Year Without — Great post with lots of great ideas. Very attuned to the “baby steps” people have to take in their journeys!

    Thanks Kristen for posting this Fight Back Friday! I would have posted something appropriate but I haven’t been feeling well this week (really, it’s been like the past few weeks). I think I am about ready to give up on raw dairy, sadly. Especially after making several new batches of raw kefir. I can’t stand the idea of letting them go to waste, but I really don’t like the symptoms that aren’t going away! =( I vow to get back to foods that nourish me!

    Anyways, keep up the great work. I enjoy reading your and everyone else’s contributions!

    Hi Erica — I think I Twittered this to you, but I want it out here for other readers as well: I think raw dairy really is the way to go if you’re going to do dairy. But lots of people still can’t do dairy, and I think there are two main reasons why:

    1) Their guts need to heal from all the years of pasteurized, bad dairy they’ve consumed. Undigested milk proteins commonly accumulate in the walls of the intestines, blocking nutrient absorption and leading to digestive/psychological/physiological disorders. The gut needs to heal from this before raw dairy can be reintroduced.


    2) It’s genetic. Look at your ancestors. Did they spend thousands of years herding sheep/goat/cows and consuming raw dairy? Or were they in a part of the world where dairy animals were uncommon?

    Son of Grok — Oh I would have loved to have seen your contribution! It’s never too late, really. If you had something good to go that you want to put up in Mr. Linky, you still can. Otherwise, we’ll catch you NEXT Friday.

    Sustainable Eats — Fixed! And don’t worry about it being Sunday. Everyone’s welcome to join, although I may lock Mr. Linky up in time for next week’s carnival. Anyhow, I love your blog! What a great idea to chronicle your journey that way. I’m sure that by the end of the year if you do all you hope to do, you’ll be significantly farther along than me….
