I’m morbidly obese. I’ve tried every diet and food plan known. Sometimes I’m successful, for a while.
I’m unable to walk now, due to degenerating bones in my right knee, and at 63 I’m getting worried about an early departure.
So starting today, this blog will chronicle my journey forward into diet, fitness, health, aging, and of course, food & eating.
Food Revolution Day is a chance for people who love food to come together to share information, talents and resources; to pass on their knowledge and highlight the world’s food issues.
Jamie Oliver’s foundation has created this event to inspire us all to take action to improve our food situation.
All around the globe, people will work together to make a difference. Food Revolution Day is about connecting with your community through events at schools, restaurants, local businesses, dinner parties and farmers’ markets. We want to inspire change in people’s food habits and to promote the mission for better food and education for everyone. read more at foodrevolutionday.org
Celebrate the Bounty of the Garden!
Alas, I am busy all day on the 19th, but I’ll keep celebrating in May AND June while the garden is lush and bountiful. My particular passion is to share my love of vegetables and how to enjoy them.
We all “know” in our heads that we “should” eat more vegetables and less foods of the type that cause illness and obesity. Yet how much have we really changed our behavior? What if you were excited about vegetables, and knew you could prepare them in meals that you looked forward to?
I meet people who don’t really enjoy cooking, or who haven’t developed some of the important skills you need to prepare fresh food well. I would love to share some ideas and recipes and inspiration to help everyone make eating healthful vegetables a central part of their diet.
So, tell me what you love, and hate, about veggies! And I’ll do my best to inspire you to try something new.
Viva la Revolution!
