Fight Back Fridays October 2nd

After a week’s hiatus, it’s good to be back. Particularly when the day of my return is in order to host yet another 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!

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.)

    My post from earlier this summer explains why my husband thinks I’ve gone “round the bend.” In it you’ll also find links to recipes for kefir soda, vanilla extract and insect repellent.

    Each week I write an article exploring a different one of the herbs that we grow organically. This week, I wrote about Tarragon. I’d love to hear how everyone else uses it.

    This week I write on alternatives to GMOs and industrial food production, which we must all start to choose if we are to be well fed in a post-fossil fuel world. Included is the full-length Future of Food movie.

    Thanks for hosting…

    On this first Friday since my family completed its first-ever, week-long Eat Local Challenge, I give you 10 Joys of that experience. I hope you enjoy the read, and, more important, consider doing the same to learn first hand the ups and downs of eating local.

    My guest blogger today is taking the incoming leadership of the FDA to task, saying their flurry of words will amount to no change, just more of the same!

    By the way, I am always looking for guest bloggers, so if you have an idea of a blog post or recipe you’d like to share, please let me know!

    I didn’t know what to write about today – but then I had a neat conversation about goats and cheese – with a man who grew up with dairy goats. He told me all about his mom and her cheesemaking – the way she used to do it without fancy tools. The whole experience was thought-provoking and inspiring.

    I may be stretching the definition of Real Food Fridays with my addition this week but I procrastinated on writing up my new slow cooker oatmeal recipe so this is the only post that nearly fits the topic… A post on my favorite bamboo cutting board. Can’t prepare Real Food on anything less than an eco-friendly cutting board right? :)
