Happy Food Day!

“Food Day’s goal is nothing less than to transform the American diet—to inspire a broad movement involving people from every corner of our land who want healthy, affordable food produced in a sustainable, humane way. In other words, we want America to eat real. We want to get Americans cooking real food for their families again. We want fewer people at drive-throughs and bigger crowds at farmers markets. We want to celebrate fresh fruits, vegetables, and healthy whole grains—and to support the local farms and farmers that produce them. We want all Americans—regardless of their age or income or geographic location—to be able to select healthy diets and avoid obesity, heart disease, and other diet-related conditions.”

Food Day celebrations are happening all throughout the country! I’m actually about to head to one on my campus which is featuring some of my favorite Charleston food trucks :]

Check their website for events in your area, and go out and eat some REAL food!

Also, here’s a link to a Food Day recipe book by some of America’s top chef and cookbook writers. Click the image to download the pdf.
