I'm a member and volunteer of FEASt (Food Education Action St. John's) and we're gearing up for a big event/fundraiser next month. There will be local food, gardening and kids activities, and lots of like-minded people. We'll be cooking up lunch for the masses in a church kitchen with industrial ovens and dishwashers. It'll be tons of fun! Last year, I helped prepare more roasted carrots, potatoes and parsnips than I had ever seen before! And I learned a great quinoa beet salad recipe.
In preparation of the event and all that cooking and food, I've been thinking about simple food and recipes which incorporate lots of veggies and/or raw ingredients. I'll post about the event for sure. In the meantime, here are some resources:
Gone Raw has lots of delicious food pictures with recipes to boot.
Kristen's Raw site is a personal blog of foodie and cookbook author Kristen Suzanne. It contains a huge supply of recipes, tips and tricks for cooking organic, vegan, and raw.
My Real Food Life is a blog from a fellow Canadian who aims to cook gluten free, soy free, corn free and egg free.Plus the food pictures are stunning.
FSN is the site for the Food Security Network of Newfoundland and Labrador.
If you live on the Northeast Avalon of Newfoundland and Labrador (like I do), the Northeast Avalon Regional Economic Development Board will be soon launching a guide to local food producers complete with a Buy Local! Buy Fresh! map.
