30 Days to a Food Revolution….

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.

I eat real food, too! (And the occasional treat-I can't lie)


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.

Bring it!

    My favorite gluten-free “real food” is almond butter or blueberries or maybe together! ;)

    My favorite food is pineapple. Not very exciting, I know, but there it is.

    I can’t believe Jamie Oliver’s last show is already coming up on Friday! That was way too short.

    I was reading my latest “Eating Well” magazine yesterday and came across something you might find interesting. There was a short article about a couple of guys who planted a garden in the truckbed of their old Dodge. I thought it was quite inspirational! http://www.eatingwell.com/food_news_origins/green_sustainable/truck_farm_unusual_urban_garden_project

    Hi Jennifer!
    I love pineapple too…actually will be picking some up very soon!
    I have the new issue of Eating Well sitting on my coffee table and haven’t had a chance to read it yet-thanks! That sounds way cool…I have a black thumb though. :(
