Today is Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day; the day for everyone to have a think about food education and sign up to put a plan together so that all kids have compulsory food teaching around the world. Last year more than 9,000 schools got involved with themed lessons and cookery challenges, this year promises to be even bigger. 'Worldwide, there are more than 42 million children under the age of five who are overweight or obese' - sign the petition, sort this out. If you're still not convinced, watch Jamie's all star music video with a slightly cringey Hugh Jackman.
The supermarkets are really upping their game in the wine world, having been awarding 33 gold medals at this week's International Wine Challenge. Take a look at this article for a list of the winners, prices starting at just £6.99 from Aldi. M&S have a massive 169 wines that have been awarded a medal so get along to pick up a bottle for the weekend.
You've heard of veg boxes, maybe even caught some chat on meat boxes, but a fish box? This is a newbie on the scene. Soleshare cut out all the middle men and go straight to the British small-scale fishermen to collect a brilliant range of fish to bring you every week (or fortnight). This means that the fish is super fresh (often only hours out of the sea) and seasonal which is double bonus points. You choose how often you want a box, which size you're after, then go and pick it up from one of seven hubs across the capital (only in London at the mo). Recipe suggestions are provided, perfect if you get a fish you're not familiar with. So not only are you supporting British fishermen, you'll also get to try new types of sea creatures and feel very virtuous for eating healthy fish.
I've rattled on about the virtues of adopting a more vegetable based diet so I won't bore you with that again; instead have a look at this link to National Vegetarian Week which takes places 18-24 May. There are lots of opportunities to get involved as an individual, community group, school or business, plus if you might be able to grab a piece of free pizza if you find yourself in the right place at the right time. Eat more veggies - you'll be healthier and help save the planet! It's a brilliant plan.
