Pizza crust waffles anyone?
Homemade pizza crust, crunchy outside, fluffy inside, topped with panroasted garlic, plum tomatoes, friars beard and minute made pecan-basil pesto.
Healthy food doesn't have to be boring! That's what Jamie @jamieoliver started teaching children all over England years ago. Successfully!
It's #foodrevolutionday today and time to reflect what this means to me and how it does effect my family.
Being healthy doesn't mean eating green leafs and exercising.
It's much more than that. For me it's all about a balanced life. I do not condemn crisps, they are certainly fun for a family bowling or tv night, but it's not on the daily menu. Being a mom asks me to be role model and inspiration for my children, sharing moral and ethical thoughts and teaching them by living them myself.
This is a lot about a balanced diet, but that's only part of it. Being healthy makes you happy. But being happy should never be at the cost of others. So for me #foodrevday is also about the responsibility for our environment and our community. It's about sustainability, about organic farming, about saving water and buying products without ridiculously huge packaging. Sometimes we have the impression that we are to small to matter or to make a difference, but in fact, every little step each one of us does adds up to big one.
To many children live on to-go-food and over-sweetened drinks and this kind of nutrition is like everything we don't need: unhealthy food, lots of garbage, non-organic, mainly not locally produced.
This has to stop! For those children who need more guidance, but for the sake of everyone's happy and healthy living.
So many #foodrevmamas just feel the same today and share their thoughts...so amazing to be part of it. Thank you Christine @conscious_cooking for being so organized and concerned and for putting this up today.
And thank you Jamie for the change you made!
And for all of you who had the patience to read until here: THANK YOU for listening.
