Fight Back Fridays May 1st

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.

I really enjoyed last week’s carnival! Thirty-four bloggers participated, and yet again many of them were first timers. If you didn’t check it out, you should. You’ll find a wealth of great articles and posts 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!

I can’t wait to see what you all share.

    There are two things I have been thinking about this week – recipes and the condition of agriculture as it relates to public policy and the government. Hence, I created two articles 1) Savory Beef, Potatoes, and Bacon, and 2) What’s the Word on Agriculture, Mr. President?

    Thanks Kristen! I love Friday!

    Hi Kristen,
    This weeks post is a look at a study by the Union of Concerned Scientists showing that GE crops don’t yield anymore then conventional or organic crops.

    Back on board, decided posting was more important than finishing a client website :). Off to read some other contributions!

    This week’s post has been burning in my brain for nearly four years. It is about how low stress handling, especially in meat production, isn’t just about feel-food but materially and positively influences taste and texture. I wonder if I should have been a bit more clinical in the post and would value feedback. What I didn’t spell out completely is that stress at slaughter (man-made, inborn) releases hormones (primarily adrenaline) that change the chemical make up of muscle tissue. The other is that stress can come from natural sources, such as a drought or sudden change in weather.

    No matter, I hope it’s helpful and thanks again, Kristen, for this initiative.

    So glad to find you and your website! What a great bunch of people you have accumulated here. And I love the line you’ve come up with, “challenging politically correct nutrition.” That is fantastic.

    My first priority on my website has been to post recipes that utilize real food. I’ve hoped to attract others to the “revolution” this way by enticing them through this method, without directly proselytizing . I really appreciate your no holds barred, all out, upfront approach to the food movement. You are doing all of us a great service.

    Thank you!
