A Healthy Food Revolution

Posted By Heather On May 14, 2010 @ 2:47 pm In Newsworthy | 4 Comments



Have you heard about the food revolution going on? I’m talking about the movement to encourage healthier eating, which has been brought forward by Jamie Oliver. You probably already know him from The Naked Chef [4], or own one of Jamie Oliver’s Cookbooks [5], or maybe you were fortunate enough to catch the reality TV series he recently did called Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution [6].

Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution was his attempt to help Huntington,West Virginia remove the label of “the unhealthiest city in America” by encouraging healthier food choices at home and at school. The series had some very dramatic and emotional moments that got the attention of a lot of people. Diane @ The W.H.O.L.E. Gang [7], who spent many years in Huntington, was especially moved by Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. She embraced the idea of a Food Revolution and wants to pass the message on to as many people as possible.

So, Diane created 30 Days to a Food Revolution [3], hosted at her website. She reached out to 30 other food bloggers and asked for help in spreading the message. 30 Days to a Food Revolution began Apr. 26 and is currently still going on. Each day, a different food blogger is providing their own perspective about how to live and eat healthier by submitting a recipe and a tip for eating healthier. The series is now on Day 15, and there are plenty more posts to come. I’ll be submitting my own post to Diane’s revolution on June 2. Until then, check out the great recipes and tips that have been posted thus far:
