Fight Back Fridays

Well, fellow Food Renegades, it’s that time of the week again! We are bringing together a collection of recipes, tips, anecdotes, and testimonies — each from a lover of Real Food.

Last week’s carnival was fantastic! If you didn’t check it out, you’ll find a wealth of inspiring and delightful entries there. It’s my personal hope that Fight Back Fridays 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. The two most important things you can remember to do are:

  1. Share a relevant post from your blog with us using the Mr. Linky Widget below.
  2. In your post, be sure to link back to this post (not the 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!

For my own contribution to today’s carnival, I shared a recipe for Mouthwatering Sweet Potato Latkes.

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.)

Come on, people. Let’s change the way America (and the industrialized world) eats!

    That link is 100 Reasons to Become a Hyperlocavore

    Thanks again for a great carnival – I goofed again and didn’t put enough information in the name. The directions are a little confusing…

    I chose the post, Fun With Garlic Scapes, because few people know how versatile and delicious they are. (They’re also known as garlic shoots and garlic tops and are popular in Asian cuisine.)

    I love this idea of Fight Back Fridays! I consistantly work with clients to bring them back to a way of living and eating that is more aligned with the way our bodies actually work despite hectic schules. It can be done! This is going to be a great resource to them; thank you for sharing, everyone!

    There are currently bills before the House of Representatives that are about food safety. These bills are worded loosely enough that organic foods, even home gardens, may be affected. I read a rumor that one of the sponsors of one of the bills is married to a Monsanto exec. I am not an alarmist, but I do believe that agri business would like nothing more than to shut down the organic business and make us one nation under GMO, patented food. See alert information from the Cornucopia Institute here

    I am making progress. I opened my lunch at work all left overs- grass fed steak, brown rice, asparagus, spinach, kimchi, and fresh fruit. I was sitting with the 20 somethings and it was 20 questions about my food. Where did I buy it, was it organic, what is kimchi and on and on. They were all very curious so I talk to them and tell them all about my food hoping that they will give some of their icky stuff up.
