Fight Back Fridays July 3rd

Happy Fight Back Friday! 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!

This week, I’m sharing a family favorite: Bacon And Avocado Egg Salad. 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!

    Hey Kristen,

    This week’s post is about what goes on at the farmers market in the hours before it opens.

    Thanks for the chance to play.

    I found this great recipe for James Beard’s “Mother’s Beach Hashed Brown Potatoes in Cream” and have made it my own! Talk about yummy stuff!

    I am so excited to debut my new website in this week’s carnival. I’ve been hard at work on the new Farm To Table, that hopefully will carry me and the site to the next level. This week’s post is all about the importance of listening to the people around us, as, in my own life, I have learned more from listening to people than all the reading, blogging, watching and thinking could ever have got me.

    Hi Kristen –
    My post this week is about the controversy surrounding Codex and whether or not its presence is a threat to our food. Thanks for Fight Back Fridays!

    Hey all, I have a cool farmer doing a series of posts on Fight Back Fridays, today’s article is about Spies in the Connecticut Farmers Markets! Very interesting read, especially considering we celebrate freedom and independence day tomorrow!

    God bless our farmers and God bless the USA!

    Happy 4th, Everybody!

    The cabbage is ready for harvest in my garden and at the farm markets here in San Diego. So I included my basic sauerkraut recipe as well as a brief discussion on digestive health and fermented foods.
