Food Day is October 24, 2011

Food Day  is a day set aside to bring awareness to eating Real Food (the unprocessed, without additives, etc).  You can sign up to participate at  Obviously, you can eat real without signing up, but you can also go to an event if you are interesting in discussing "about what's right and wrong with our diets and whole food system and how to fix them."

Why is there a Food Day?  According to the website, the goal is to transform the American Diet.

The 6 principles are:
1.Reduce diet-related disease by promoting safe, healthy foods
2.Support sustainable farms & limit subsidies to big agribusiness
3.Expand access to food and alleviate hunger
4.Protect the environment & animals by reforming factory farms
5.Promote health by curbing junk-food marketing to kids
6.Support fair conditions for food and farm workers

If not participating in an event, please consider eating only real food.  It does taste so much better when you keep it real and know what you are eating.


  1. Very cool! Thanks for sharing this on your blog, it's an inspiration. When I go shopping today, I think I will restrict myself to only buying real food. I'm looking forward to a really yummy week of home cooking. :)

  2. See, already bringing awareness and change!
