Are you familiar with the Food Revolution?
(Cue Beatles song “Revolution”. Yes, now it’s going to be stuck in your head all day. Welcome to my world.)
Hopefully, you’ve been able to catch the TV show “Food Revolution” led by Jamie Oliver. I was really excited to see this show and shared my enthusiasm here. The series is almost over, and it’s been very interesting to watch. Suffice to say I do not have children, but if I did I’d personally be in the cafeteria at the school. As it is, I’m involved from a distance.
The basic premise is to move toward (or back to?) real food as opposed to psuedo-food with a list of ingredients longer than my arm. To food we can recognize and pronounce.
With this end in mind, Diane at The WHOLE Gang (whole healthy organic living every day) is organizing the “30 Days to a Food Revolution.”
The 30 days is running April 26th thru June 4th. It will be “30 days, 30 different food blogs, 30 ways to eat real food!” There will be a collection of posts and recipes from 30 different bloggers sharing recipes for “real food.”
As I have said many times, I am very grateful for the large variety of gluten free items that are being manufactured. However, my heart and stomach remain primarily with naturally gluten free foods. (I discuss this in a bit more detail in deconstructing 2 eating styles.)
Please check out the 30 days, and I’m sure you’ll get some awesome ideas. Also, be sure to look for the Food Revolution TV show which airs on Friday nights. And if you haven’t already, please check out Jamie Oliver’s site and sign the petition.
So what’s your favorite gluten free “real food?” I will create a “not really a recipe” which includes the most unusual food listed in the comments below.
