Have you heard of Food Revolution Day? If not then listen up because you don’t want to miss this!
Food Revolution is a celebration of food! REAL FOOD! Its a day where we all take a stance and celebrate cooking our own food, nourishing our bodies the right way and understanding that food brings us together.
Food Revolution Day on 17 May is a global day of action for people to make a stand for good food and essential cooking skills. It’s a chance for people to come together within their homes, schools, workplaces and communities to cook and share their kitchen skills, food knowledge and resources. Food Revolution Day aims to raise awareness about the importance of good food and better food education for everyone by focusing on three simple actions – cook it, share it, live it. The first Food Revolution Day took place on 19 May 2012 with more than 1,000 events in 664 cities across 62 countries.
It’s pretty significant! As a clean eater and health advocate, this is such a HUGE step in the right direction! For not only our nation but for our families and ourselves. Between work, school and every day life we, as a Nation, have let cooking real food go to the way side. We unfortunately rely on fast food stops to feed ourselves and our families and this needs to stop. Get in the kitchen and start cooking! Make it a priority to your health and your loved ones health!
