Fall In Love with Flavour All Over Again

If you heart delicious food you'll love slow food!
The Slow Food Movement is becoming more and more popular all over the world. With nearly 100,000 members in 132 countries, the Slow Foodies are really starting to get their views and concerns out there about making sure the world is eating "good" food.

So what is Slow Food all about? Slow Food is a nonprofit, eco-gastronomic member supported organisation. Their purpose is to get everyone to slow down from the "fast life." In hopes to counteract fast food Slow Food focuses on the disappearance of local food traditions and people's decreasing interest in what they are putting in their mouth.

People around the world are forgetting that what you put in your body should not only be good for you, but should taste good too. By increasing awareness of the food people eat, where it comes from and how it tastes Slow Food is hoping to preserve food heritage around the world.

The world around us is constantly on the go with little time to take a break, but don't let that affect the food you eat.

The food you eat should not only taste good, but you should be aware of where it comes from. Making sure your food is being produced in a clean way that doesn't harm the environment, animal welfare, or your health should be on the top of your priorities. Although sadly it is far from most of the population's minds, the Slow Food Movement is about making people aware of these key issues.

There are numerous events and projects internationally, nationally and locally that you can get involved in to help support the Slow Food Movement. Get involved with projects around Australia like Dirty Hands, Bush Know How or Australian Ark.

Dirty Hands is a program dealing with school and community garden development. By educating younger generations Slow Food hopes to enhance their ecological knowledge and awareness. Slow Food helps primary school and communities start kitchen gardens and encourages them to get involved in horticulture and nutrition.

Australian Ark focuses on maintaining traditional foods that may be endangered. This project helps producers to develop a growing market for traditional foods that have disappeared from our preferred tastes.

Bush Know How is programme meant to sustain and extend bush food diversity, knowledge and market awareness. These are only a few of the wide variety of projects that you can get involved in.

Although the world around us is focused on full packed days barely making time to grab anything to eat besides a fast food hamburger, Slow Food is trying to move the focus from being constantly on the go, to slowing down your busy lifestyle.

Next time you are out doing the grocery shopping or picking up dinner take a second to think about where your food is coming from. Take some time to make sure you are aware of where your food is coming from, what when in to producing it and that it actually tastes good.
