Ready for a revolution?!?
Grab your pots, pans, and plates, ladies … May 19 is Food Revolution Day!
Organized by the Jamie Oliver Foundation (You remember Jamie, right? That cutie-pie British fella formerly known as “The Naked Chef” …?), Food Revolution Day celebrates the chance to share your food knowledge, know-how, resources, and recipes.
Your mission in this revolution? To get back to basics or, as Jamie puts it, to stand up for real food.
And, most importantly, to help others discover the joys of healthy, fresh food choices.
If I know my farmgirls, you gals are all over this one already.
Inspiring change and living healthy … that’s kind of our thing, right?!
So, ready to revolutionize??
People buying my organic quick-prep meals, in Mylar 15-year-shelf-life packaging, keep my food crew plenty busy. It’s monotonous work, but they never complain. I’d like to express my gratitude, no, make that GRATITUDE, for the excellent mistake-proof job they do, day in and day out, year after year.

(I promise, you’ll never be the same.) Get ready to usher in the human spirit at its best! (And walk away forever inspired by Béna and the women in her life.)
Bonjour, Mon Cheri! Caviar and champagne dreams await you as our very own Alyson Oüten travels to Sun Valley to sample marvelous cuisine, right in her own backyard! Nestled in central Idaho, the renowned Sun Valley is a destination for cuisine, skiing, horseback riding, golfing, ice skating, snowmobiling, fishing, hot springs, biking, hiking, river rafting, camping, and rock climbing, just to name a few. Lucky for Alyson, she happens to live right around the corner. Unlucky for me, because I’m six hours north and would have loved to have joined her because … I’ve never in my life tasted caviar. With Alyson nudging me to give it a try, I recently gave it go while on a visit to Portland.
Take it away, Aly!!!
In our quest to feed our children healthy food, keep away from dangerous cancer-causing chemicals, and fight off the hundreds of toxins our bodies are exposed to every day, one must start at home by avoiding the consumption of Genetically Modified Organisms and limiting our exposure to toxic cosmetic products.
This just in from Oregon …
Doesn’t this just make your skin crawl?
For no apparent reason (other than I think my employes are fabulous), I pampered them yesterday by delivering root beer floats to each and all. Mmmmmmmm, Julie’s organic ice cream, artisan root beer, spooned with love. Whatever floats your boat. Mine is all the work my employees accomplish!
