Starting a Food Revolution!

photo credit: gorenjegroup.comI kind of have a secret love affair with Jaime Oliver. I have been watching and following him since he was the “Naked Chef.” And then his show debuted on the Food Network, “Jaime at Home.” I never missed a Saturday morning, awe-struck at his magnificent and gigantic perfect garden, his out-door brick oven and cooking demos, and his gorgeous rustic cottage as he prepped, prepared, and displayed his newest recipes. I fell more in love with his passion for food, eagerness to make a change in the world, and wholeheartedness to help families and their communities choose better food choices to help change their lives.

Now, he challenges us all as he begins the next step of his world revolution. Saturday, May 19th is “Food Revolution Day.” A day dedicated to making a better choice for your health, life, and the lives of your loved ones. Food Revolution Day can be as simple as vowing to stay home and make dinner and enjoy it as a family, or hold a small dinner party and invite a few friends over, ask them to bring a homemade dish or prepare something special to enjoy with you closest friends. Or Food Revolution Day could be as big as a community event, bringing the community together to stand up, support, and fight for your local farmers, to know where you food comes from, and to eat seasonably.

Summer is the perfect time to make a difference in your health, your life, your family’s life, and your community. It all starts with a small change that makes a big difference and creates a ripple effect. You can start a garden in your backyard, it doesn’t have to be big and you can even do a container garden if you don’t have a lot of room, commit to buying local produce from your local farmers, choose to cook and eat one more day a week at home than you normally do, or make better food choices when shopping at the grocery store. There are so many little steps to start out with that can change the way you change your health and live a healthier and happier lifestyle.
