By on May 15, 2014

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.

Spring in your plate: Tabouleh

Monday, I submitted my very first picture at Foodgawker and amazingly I got accepted.  Since then I got accepted for another one but declined for 3.  If you are a food blogger, you will understand it is a big deal, and you get some proud of having your pictures on such a website.

Like you, I have my work, my 2 kids and everything else that involves, my husband and the blog.  In a few days, it will be just 3 months that I am blogging but I have already learnt so much.  I wear different hats: the IT girl, the cook, the food stylist, the photographer and PR girl.  It is not always easy or perfect but I am having fun and it is what counts, isn’t it?

Today, I want to share a recipe that is so easy, fresh and flavorful.   Tomatoes are not in season yet but as soon as it will, buy local from your farmer and enjoy a perfect side dish!
