Food Revolution Day 2013 – Tasting Party

Blog 4 Comments

You, our dear readers have asked us some great questions about how we get our families eating more vegetables.  In honor of Food Revolution Day we decided to host a Tasting Party showcasing some of your favorite recipes.  Instead of just sharing our recipes we invited you to send in your tried-and-true veg recipes for us to try.  On Friday, May 17th Daja and I cooked up all of your recipes and invited our foodie friends over for a Tasting Party celebrating Food Revolution Day.  After all, this year’s theme was “Cook it.  Share it.  Live it.” A vegetable tasting party seemed to fit right in!

FOOD REVOLUTION DAY, May 17, 2013!

Uncategorized No Comments

Food Revolution Day is something about which we are super passionate.  REAL FOOD!  Where it comes from! How to arrives to our tables! How we prepare it with respect and awareness!  And how we share it with others!

Last year for Food Revolution Day we hosted a Farm-To-Table dinner for the pastors and church leaders of our community.  It was beautiful and inspiring to see leaders from different denominations and streams come together around a common table.  You can see lots of pictures and read more about it here and here.

It’s super easy.  Just snap a picture of you sharing real food with real people on or around Food Revolution Day (May 17) and share it with us via Facebook or by emailing theprovisionroom@gmail.com and you’ll be entered to win!  We can’t wait to see what you creative people come up with!

Believe it or not, it is things just like this that change the world.  Sharing a meal is POWERFUL! It really is.  Even Jesus used sharing food to describe our salvation and the Kingdom of Heaven!  Talk about powerful!

We’ll be talking more about the Food Revolution in the days to come, via the blog, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  PLEASE JOIN THE CONVERSATION!

I sometimes think the chef end of cooking is not the real end of cooking.  Cooking is all about homes and gardens, it doesn’t happen in restaurants. –Delia Smith

We purposed to make the entire journey Fast Food Free!  But, I gotta tell ya, there is not much out there once you pass Tucson.  If we hadn’t planned ahead a bit, we’d be in a real pickle.   Read More
