Fight Back Fridays August 14th

Happy Fight Back Friday, everyone! Today we’re bringing together another 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!

Today, I’m sharing a piece on how rampant imitation foods are in our culture, and how we no longer consider them “fake.” As my launching point, I looked at a 1908 Physiology textbook which railed against “adulterated foods.”

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.)

    The post I’m sharing this week is about cooling gourmet ice cream milkshakes to help you get through the dog days of summer.

    Two of the milkshake recipes I share in the post are recent recipes of my own.

    I’m really excited about finally participating in Fight Back Fridays! This is my first time, but I hope it won’t be my last. I’m really looking forward to reading the other posts, especially your post from the 1908 textbook. My first post is a review of the documentary, “Fresh!” which I hope everyone will see.

    Fired up after hearing Joel Salatin speak in Portland, tonight, I wrote about my own recent experience with “Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal.” Thanks for hosting, Kristin! Great post on fake food!

    Hi Kristin and Fellow Food Rebels!

    I am Sleepless in D.C., working on my blog at 4:00am! Today’s post for the carnival is by a guest blogger, who like me lays up at night stewing at how our governments in the U.S. and Canada are treating our dairy farmers.

    Her thoughts as she tosses and turns are provocative, and hopefully will wake some bureaucrats up!

    This month is Michael Schmidt month on my blog, and would love any of you to blog about him as a guest blogger on Hartke is Online!

    This week my mother-in-law turned 70, and like many seniors, she is concerned about her bone density and avoiding hip fractures. So my post is about ways to prevent osteoporosis with nutrition.

    Hi – This week I’m sharing my homemade Creamy Salad Dressing recipe – the base of which can be many things: chevre, sour cream, kefir cheese, or yogurt cheese.

    Hey Fight Back Friday friends! I just finished a post on a delightfully delicious blueberry pancake recipe – ahh but this is no regular blueberry pancake recipe this is a probiotic super food inspired by non other than the Food Renegade. :)

    Thanks to the inspiration and wonderful information on this blog I tried Kefir for the first time a few days ago and as often happens when I get in the kitchen my creative inklings take over – thus was born my Organic Blueberry Kefir Pancake Recipe…

    So I was reading a book that had mentioned that organ meats and egg yolks were VERY BAD for you due to the high Arachidonic Acid content in them that caused inflammation. I just had to find out more information about that as chronic inflammation is often the cause of degenerative disease. How can something so good for us be bad..

    My post is arriving a little later than usual as a result of some computer issues, but I hope everyone gets a chance to look it over anyway!`

    Today I wrote about Molasses, one of my favorite sweeteners, and provided a bit of trivia as well as a few ideas for recipes. Happy Eating!

    I’m attempting to locate all of my Great Grandmother’s Recipes that were handed down to me. Today’s recipe is one that holds really dear memories for me – and well, our entire family!

    They are Great Grandma’s Toffee Cookies – how they got that name I may never know – cause they’re definitely not anything that I’ve ever thought of as toffee! But they are mouthwateringly delicious and decidedly habit forming. Be warned! :)

    I hope you enjoy them!
