Alyssa Milano is getting in on the action that is Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day. The actress and environmentalist will cook up a vegetarian storm on May 19 by hosting her very own Food Revolution dinner.
On Food Revolution Day people worldwide will host dinner parties in support of food education. Obesity has more than doubled since 1980 with nearly 43 million children under five-years-old being overweight, Oliver’s website reports.
This special day can educate others about the issue of obesity, all while learning how to cook and eat responsibly.
For Milano, she’s decided to host her very own dinner party where she will be showing off some of her favorite recipes.
“For a long time I was a vegetarian, but I have just started adding fish into my diet again. I wanted to share with you all a vegetarian meal that I cook for my family and friends… and guess what… it’s made up of my favorite Jamie recipes! Everyone loves it,” Milano says on the Food Revolution Day website.
“Everything I prepare at home is organic and this also goes for my baby Milo. As a mother, I am conscious about what Milo eats so I thought I would also share my menu for him and hope it inspires other mothers to prepare beautiful food for their little ones,” she continues.
Her menu includes a guacamole platter, vegetarian chili and clementine jelly. A menu for baby Milo is also included, which offers pureed papaya, zucchini with basil and pureed avocado.
Milano isn’t the only celeb joining in on the Food Revolution fun. Richard Branson, Adrian Grenier and of course Jamie Oliver will also host their very own dinner parties.
