Fight Back Fridays June 26th

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.

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!

    I swear the coconut oil that Kelly is blogging about is what’s helping my torn MCL to heal. The body needs healthy fats in order to heal! Thanks for getting the word out. Oh, and I blogged about the awful Hamburger Helper ad featuring Beyonce.

  2. LivingByConscience says

    I’m glad I found out about this website. I had never really delved too deply into the blog world before starting my own, and now I see I have a whole lot of catching up to do!

  3. ediblearia says

    Is there anything better (or easier) than tomato sauce made from only the freshest ingredients? Here is the Nourishing Traditions recipe illustrated.

  4. Kat says

    I just wanted to thank FoodRenegade for letting even newbies participate in Fight Back Friday :-). I know very little compared to most of you, as I’ve really just begun this journey – but I’m exploring it on my blog, and hopefully there are some other newbies who might benefit!

    It is always great to see so many diverse and important views on Fight Back Friday. My post this week takes a look at the food marketing investments made every year by the major food companies. Did you know they collective spend around $30 billion per year to influence/drive demand, with an emphasis on children? Helps explain at least part of the diet-related health epidemic our country faces.

    The stumble factor is fairly jaw-dropping, Kristen- two hundred new visitors in just a few minutes with no end in sight.

    By the way, I forgot to mention clicking on the closeup of the basil in the to see if you can spot the perfectly camouflaged critter hiding in the leaves.

    Thanks for leading the fight!

    My offering this week is a call to action regarding Genetically Engineered food. I look forward to reading everyone’s blogs, especially the folks who are new! It is nice to expand my reading list with these new sites!

    Happy Eating!

    Eating healthy is a challenge when so many yummy foods are delicious but healthy eating habits do bring more benefits than the not-so-healthy food so that is what I try to focus on.


  10. says

    This week – all about Carnitas! Woo Hoo! LOVE those things! So many options on what you can do with them. Also, as a bonus – there are links to making Fresh Pico de Gallo and Fresh Guacamole (which, really, is best with the Fresh Pico de Gallo in it!).

    Thanks Kristen!

    Because of a funeral I had to recycle a post to include for today but it is recent I hope those of you who enjoy whipped cream will put to good use our RAW cream whipped cream with cinnamon. Seriously good stuff! Try it on fresh organic peach slices — now there’s a great summer snack:-) This carnival is such a great way to meet and learn. Way to go, Kristen!

    Hi Everyone – I’m new to the real food world and loving it – especially the real food community, such an amazing group of people; certainly the kindest and politest bunch in the blogosphere! My post is fairly minimal, I like to use pictures more than words. :-)

    Hi – my Real Food Lover blog was shortlisted for the Guild of Food Writers Awards.

    I did not win but the awards party was great fun, with UK celebrity chefs galore (see pics on my blog).

    Viva Real Food!
