April 24, 2014 by Leanne Vogel March 30, 2017We did not have much money growing up. My Mom was midway through University and my Dad was a fresh college graduate. No matter how tight the budget or constricted the schedule, everything we ate was homemade. “It’s less expensive than going out to eat and the food we make together is much healthier for your little growing body” my Mom would answer after I asked why we made so much of our food at home when all of the other kids snacked on granola bars, dunkaroos and those awesome cheese string things. Both of my parents taught me to cook with ingredients on hand and encouraged me to take care of my body through traditional food preparation. Breakfasts were enjoyed around the dinner table, packed lunches had handwritten notes inside, and dinner was always something warm… even if it was just pancakes. As an adult; and especially as a Nutrition Educator, I see how powerful and invaluable it is to feel confident in the kitchen. My parents’ dedication in inspiring me to be passionate about feeding myself will stick with me forever. A couple of weeks ago, Sobeys approached me about helping spread the word about Food Revolution Day – a day of global action. It’s about positively celebrating the importance of cooking good food from scratch and raising awareness of how it impacts our health and happiness. Because I experienced this first hand during my own childhood, I jumped at the chance to be a part of the event.
