I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again….I’m a big fan of Jaime Oliver. I like his food philosophy, I like his recipes, I like his no-nonsense approach to getting things done in the kitchen, I like the message he’s bringing to the world, and the campaign he’s built to not only get families eating healthier food, but to get better food into the schools for our kids. I don’t think there’s any chef working so hard to bring better food and cooking skills to average families and kids than Oliver. How cool and important is that!
I’ve been a card carrying member of Jaimie’s Food Revolution for years now, and today, May 20th, marks his annual Food Revolution Day when all of us revolutionaries make an extra effort to get the word out and draw attention to his cause of ensuring ample, healthy food for all.
Jaimie’s message is simple: “Meaningful, lasting change is built from the ground up. If we each take a few small steps to shift the way we grow, distribute, purchase, prepare and prioritize food, the ripple effect would be enormous. Governments will react with change in policies, businesses will change practices and therefore entire generations will be equipped with the skills, knowledge and resources they need to eat good, nutritious food for a healthier, happier life. Change can start at home, simply by learning to cook a few nutritious meals and passing those new skills onto friends and family. Change can mean getting your kids in the kitchen, supporting local food or inviting your loved ones around a table to enjoy good food, cooked from scratch. You can also advocate change at a community level, by signing up to the Food Revolution, keeping abreast of all the latest news, and supporting Jamie and his partner’s campaigns in making our united voice heard. Together, we can all make small changes that en masse create a huge impact.”
So, if you, like me, believe that everyone deserves not only access to healthy food, but the skills required to transform that food into healthy tasty recipes for themselves and their families, then please click on the link below to learn more about The Food Revolution, and how you might play a part in making our revolution a healthy success.
