start a food revolution

Did you know this Saturday, May 19th is Food Revolution Day? Word. Gotta love Jamie Oliver, right? I'm on the look-out for an event to pop up in my area (maybe a farmer's market rally or something?), but in the meantime my plan for the fam is for us to eat all from-scratch food that day, even our cheese and crackers. Are you doing anything special to mark the occasion?

I was going to add a few of my thoughts on real food here, but I've probably done enough of that already. Plus, I have the hunch that anything I say to you about eating real food will be preaching to the choir, especially since I have gotten as many food tips from this blog as I have given.

So instead, Choir, I'll invite you to check out the sweet infographic below regarding the need to make food education compulsory. I wholeheartedly agree! And if have a blog and you're feeling social, you can grab the embed code here and share it with your readers.

Oh yeah, and if you like posts like this one, don't forget to friend me on Facebook (using the button above), where you can also find this post and pass it along that way. Looking forward to some friendly FB chats!

Editor's note: This post is part of Real Food Wednesday and Frugal Days, Sustainable Ways.

Hi Justine ... I'm so glad you brought this to my attention! I'm pretty upset about the state of food education (complete lack of) in the school system and am old enough to have been there while it was being dismantled. I'd like to invite you to share your post with us at Scratch Cookin' Tuesday.

Thanks Justine! This is awesome! We're going to have to come up with a way to celebrate the revolution on Saturday!

Wow! I will definitely have to post this on my blog!

One in four eat fast food every day! That is inside.
