I meant to post about Food Revolution almost two months ago, when I volunteered as a photographer at the group’s first event in Kuwait. Clearly, I didn’t get around to posting anything about the event! I volunteered at another workshop yesterday and this time I’m not putting off writing about it, mainly because I firmly believe in this group’s cause in wanting to encourage  healthy living.

The Food Revolution is a global movement initiated by Jamie Oliver to change the way people eat. A mass social event took place in May and aimed to educate everybody about the harms of processed food, give people better alternatives and promote cultural change on a large-scale (targeting schools, corporations and even governments). Spearheading the Food Revolution in Kuwait is health coach Juna Al-Awadhi, nutritionist Dr. Nada Al-Ragum and organic food fanatic and entrepreneur Jumana Al-Awadhi of  www.welovekuwait.com.

And this is what I came up with:

Ramadan Mubarak

For the past two weeks, my head is about to EXPLODE with desserts ideas for this Ramadan.

So many ideas, so little time and so little energy. I will try my best to make something at least every 2 days. I hope my laziness disappears and my love of the kitchen kicks back in!

Until then, Ramadan Mubarak and happy Feasting.

With love,
