Food Revolution and our FIRST GIVE-AWAY!



Did you watch Jaime Oliver’s Food Revolution? If not, why not? I know, it's like avoiding the doctor when you know something is wrong! If you know the truth, you will have to act on it and make changes.

This is a great show to watch with your family. You will never plan your weekly menu the same way again. And hopefully it will inspire you to change some habits and possibly even check out your local schools and see what they are serving the students.

It's only 6 episodes, and a bit scripted, but the point is made very strongly. In fact, it's one of the reasons I started this blog. Jamie helped me realize that cooking from scratch is the first step in getting our family on a healthier path. We don't have to live fat-free, sugar-free for the rest of our lives. But we need to be aware of what we are doing when we buy all that processed food and fast food. Cooking from scratch is exactly what Jamie prescribes.

For our FIRST GIVE-AWAY here at the FamilyScratch blog, I am giving away a free copy of Jamie's book: Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals (Hardcover)

Here is how you can enter to win:
1. Watch all 6 episodes of the show. You can see them all at hulu.com
2. Decide (by yourself or with your family) what you are going to do, and how, to commit to eating healthier.
3. Sign Jamie's petition on his website.
4. Make your own blog post about the show and what your goal is. If you don't have a blog, you can make a facebook post, or send an email out to your friends and family (and me).
5. Last, but certainly not least, comment here on my blog about your goal and what you learned from the show.

I will have a random drawing in 2 weeks for the winner (May 17th). Pass this info to your friends and family and encourage them to enter the drawing too!! GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!

Do I get 2 entries in the drawing for being first! I loved the Food Revolution Liz! My goal since joining the "from scratch" revolution has been to make one NEW recipe from scratch each week. I have loved it! It has forced me to learn new tricks and BUY vegetables I have no idea what to do with. I buy them then bring them home and look up recipes on how to use them! Woo hoo for Jamie Oliver!
