FOOD REVOLUTION DAY

 

Tutti conoscono l’importanza del mangiare sano. In questi giorni in cui sembra che non si parli altro di crisi molti credono che sia importante risparmiare anche sul cibo acquistando prodotti economici e spesso di scarsa qualità. Ma economico non vuol dire sempre scarsa qualità come sano non vuol dire poco gustoso. Io apprezzo molto il lavoro che Jamie Oliver sta facendo per portare il messaggio del mangiare sano, della condivisione e del divertirsi cucinando. Il 17 maggio 2013 sarà la Food revolution day. Attività in tutto il mondo in scuole di cucina, ristoranti, piazze e case private saranno svolte all’insegna della bontà e della buona cucina. Sarà una giornata di condivisione di ricette, trucchi , consigli e , soprattutto , di incontro tra persone che amano la propria vita ed il proprio corpo.

ON 17 MAY, MAKE A STAND AND GET THE WORD OUT THERE – JOIN US IN SENDING A UNITED MESSAGE TO THE WORLD.

Friday 17 May 2013 is Food Revolution Day, a global day of action for people everywhere to come together to celebrate real food and learn where it comes from and how to cook it.

Learning how to cook is one of the most valuable skills you can ever learn. These skills used to be passed down from generation to generation, but now millions of people lack even the most basic skills.

  • As cooking skills are declining so less people are cooking good, nutritious food, made from scratch (1).
  • Worldwide, 500 million adults are obese and more than 1.5 billion are overweight. By 2030, nearly 60% of the world’s population could be obese (2).
  • Diet-related diseases are among the world’s biggest killers (3). Physical inactivity and poor diet were responsible for 12.5 million deaths in 2010 (4).

We need to get back to basics: cook and eat fresh, local produce; share cooking skills and food knowledge and join forces within communities to get as many people involved as possible.

  • Do you believe in the magic of food and that everyone should know how to cook tasty, nutritious food from scratch?
  • Do you believe in sharing food skills and knowledge so that everyone can understand how incredible good food is, where it comes from, how it affects the body and how it can save our lives?

We need the world to take notice – we need to shout our message out loud, together and all at once.

Join Jamie Oliver, the Food Revolution global community and many more in reaching out to people around the world, at the same time with one, single message – sign up to this Thunderclap.
