Fight Back Fridays — May 29th

Happy Fight Back Friday! Today we are 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. 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.

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

    Seeing first hand the success of Claire’s Restaurant in Hardwick, VT is truly inspirational. Not only have they created a “third place” for community members to gather and enjoy incredibly tasty food experiences, they have also been recognized by several publications.

    Enjoy the read. Better yet, next time your in Vermont, plan to make a stop at Claire’s.

    Today I have updated my recipe for lacto-fermented ketchup, eliminating the maple syrup in favor of molasses and adding a spoonful of walnut oil. I’ve included the original 1881 recipe that I based this on.

    No HFCS or BPA-leeching here, just traditional Old South flavors meets Nourishing Traditions.

    The post I’ve share this week features 10 delicious gourmet salad recipes.

    It’s already pretty warm here in South Carolina so it’s always nice when I don’t have to heat up the kitchen too much.

    My post is about prevention (eating good foods and lifestyle change) for keeping healthy instead of drugs and medication. Thanks Kristen!

    Thank you for hosting such a great carnival! No new post this week (well, unless you count the pictures of my little ones . . . gratuitous cuteness! :) but I linked to a previous post on how to make crispy, roasted chickpeas – one of our favorite snacks (especially when Cajun-flavored! :)

    Have a great Friday!

    Ack! The new one tripped me up! It should say “completely edible – more wild eats”

    Anyway, I posted about eating wild foraged food (or food your local farmer foraged on their land, if you are like me and live in NYC where even dandelions can be hard to find!). I listed some wild foods I recently ate and gave some tips on what they taste like and some ideas for preparation. But since it was my first time for some of them, I’m looking forward to tips and feedback from readers who may have been eating these foods for a long time!

    Today we’re talking about edible beauty products — specifically, non-toxic, homemade, inexpensive deodorant. Woo! No more stanky.

    Thanks for hosting, Kristen!

    I’m so happy that today is Friday and I was able to share about my exciting night last night at the FRESH screening. I have to say, I am seriously considering an internship at Polyface Farm!

    Thanks so much for finding me at Traveling with Baby. I just posted my raw peach cobbler and raw bananaberry cobbler recipes on the linky. This looks like a great community which I’ll be certain to frequent again and again!

    The post I would like to share with the group is a the outcome of a lot of Americans not being “Food Renegades.” Nutritional deficiencies are a result of a nutrient deficient , standard Western diet. I hope this will be helpful to some of your readers.

    “The 5 most common nutritional deficiencies I see in my Orange, chiropractic and holistic practice.”
