TEN FAVOURITE OMELETTE FILLINGS + FOOD REVOLUTION DAY
Jamie’s Food Revolution Day is all about our children having access to good, nutritious food, and as a new mama, this is something extremely close to my heart and what’s going on in our house right now. My little boy has just started eating and the joy it gives me as he smushes his first strawberry into his face or chews on a crust of sourdough is really wonderful.
The revolution is all about being aware of where our food comes from, how it’s produced, how we cook it, and the effect it has on our planet. It encourages everyone – from fathers to politicians, to take some responsibility for the way we produce, buy, cook and consume food.
Last year, I spent the day with Gennaro Contaldo, and Jamie, making pasta in a playground with some very sweet kids.
This year Food Revolution seems to be wider than just the day (20th May). A day of action is an amazing thing but it’s this year there are more things happening over a few weeks to help bring these changes into our homes everyday and not just on one day. Jamie is aiming to show us that nutritious food can be super fast, really simple and absolutely delicious. And what better example of healthy fast food than the humble omelette?
Food Revolution Day is challenging you to make a healthy omelette that symbolises your nation through the ingredients and methods used to create it. So I thought I’d share one of the food maps from my book for some inspiration, it’s a kind of choose-your-own adventure chart, with my ten favourite combinations or try my Soft Green Herb Omelette for a fresh, quick dinner.
