When a talented TV chef uses his fame to advocate balanced, healthy eating, things start to change. In short, Jamie Oliver has started a healthy eating revolution! Thanks to his campaigns including Food Revolution Day, his website and book Everyday Super Food, Britain’s most famous chef is gradually changing the way people think about the food they eat and getting them back to homemade dishes based on simple ingredients that the whole family can enjoy together.


Healthy eating from an early age

What has Jamie been campaigning for over the past 10 years? For children to learn about healthy eating and to have fun cooking delicious, balanced food with their families and for schools to provide meals that are adapted to their needs. Alongside Cherie Blair, the wife of former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, Jamie openly criticised the quality of food served in British school canteens on his TV show Jamie’s School Dinners a reality show that revealed the shockingly unhealthy meals served to children in a south London school.

Food Revolution Day: a call to families to get cooking together

Launched by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation in Britain and the US, and by the Good Foundation in Australia, Food Revolution Day calls on children and parents to learn to have fun cooking together using healthy ingredients. Jamie says: “My wish is to create a strong, sustainable movement to educate every child about food, inspire families to cook again and empower people everywhere to fight obesity.” Food Revolution Day is about celebrating good, fresh, real food cooked from scratch and to encourage people from all over the world to learn and share their knowledge with each other about food, where it comes from and how to cook it.

Whatever your age, a healthy diet rich in fresh fruit and vegetables will give you energy as well as the vitamins and minerals your body needs. Thanks to Color Therapy, the use of your juice extractor no longer holds any secrets from you. So, you have perfectly mastered fruit juices? Now try them combined with vegetables, to bring you even more goodness!


Fruit and vegetable juices, true magic potions

Carrot: you already know that the colour orange forms an essential part of your cooking. This is down to using oranges full of vitamin C, as well as carrots. Carrot juice is an excellent source of vitamin A, and above all, it is easy to digest. It provides vitamins B, C, D, E, G, and K while simplifying digestion, and is also consumed for the potassium and sodium it contains.

Beetroot: adds its radiant colour to all your juices, but does much more than that. It is recommended that you drink it regularly, particularly for its beneficial effects on red blood cells.

Celeriac juice: in addition to a delicious taste which blends perfectly with carrots, it is recommended for its sodium content and its alcalising function.

Cucumber juice: an excellent diuretic, it is also perfect in all types of juices thanks to its water content. It can be combined with numerous fruits. Try cucumber-kiwi juice, for example!

Spinach juice: one of the stars of health juices. You can combine it with carrot, but also apple and/or kiwi. It is recommended when you want to cleanse your body and help it to restart, or as a springtime cure, for example.

Thanks to your juices, you can combine healthy cooking with creativity, while benefiting every day from the nutritional benefits of fresh, seasonal foods full of goodness. Say yes to Color Therapy!
