OK...this is important.
My family watched Food Inc a few weeks ago with some friends. We were greatly impacted by what we learned about our food system. At the blog that I write for 'Not Dabbling in Normal' I posted my reactions and the subsequent challenge I uttered.
Little did I know that so many would enthusiastically decide to take up the challenge with me!
We are trying to make our food more 'real' for the month of March. Less processed, less packaging, fewer chemicals, more from scratch, and closer to its original form.
Why have I decided to take such a drastic step? Why bother fighting a food system that is so much bigger than I am?
I have to look no farther than the small faces that sit across from me at the dinner table. The unhealthy food system that we are putting in place now will be the food system that our children and grandchildren will be nourished by for the foreseeable future…unless we do something about it now.
So that is where you all come in...
I would love it if you would read my original post, I would also be thrilled it if you would join me in this challenge.
No hard and fast rules, everyone is welcome. All I want is a commitment to make a change towards real food. It can be as small as cooking one meal from scratch a week or it can be as big as making your own bread for a month!
We are having link parties, giveaways, and tons of recipes.
We will swap successes as well as failures.
Real food...real dialog...real people!
