It is almost there!  Friday will be Food Revolution Day, what have you planned to participate?  It does not have to be anything big, just a healthy influence: take a picture, share it on social media and add #FRD2014.  Done.

In my Food Revolution Series, I have been taking part of the campaign by through different initiatives:
Understand where food comes from: We made a small area in the backyard dedicated to a garden, the kids planted vegetables seeds and have been watering it every single day since.
Involve your children in the kitchen; My son made dinner with me, he was really proud of his meat balls, you have to try those with your children!
Cook from scratch as much as you can like this pecan-crustedchicken.
– Teach your children t o make smart healthy snack choices: my son helped my prepare an avocado dip.

Salade niçoise for my healthy resolution!
