National Food Day

#FoodDay2015

What would make millions of people crunch into an apple all at the same time?

 

Just CRUNCH, SNAP and POST on October 24th for Apple Crunch Day!

And here locally, what would make you and others in our community crunch into an apple on October 24th Food Day 2016?

Please join me and local community members, businesses and farmers in one unifying action to raise awareness about eating better diets for our health and the environment, access and affordability of fruits and vegetables, and supporting local farmers.

Here is how it works.
Sometime between now and October 24th, crunch into an apple and take your picture. Post it on DigInEatUp Facebook, Instigram and Twitter. Be SURE to include the #FoodDay2015 and my twitter address @digineatup in your post so I can retweet it October 24th.

Get a peek at some of the pictures that will be a part of the October 24th Apple Crunch postings by going to the DigInEatUp facebook page.

Apple Mimosa

Apple Mimosa
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, simmer apple cider until it is reduced to a fourth of its original quantity. It will get thick like syrup. Allow to cool and chill. Lightly rub the rim of each champagne glass with butter, just enough to grease. Dip the greased rim into brown sugar. Add 2 tablespoons of the chilled apple cider syrup and fill the glass ¾ full with champagne. Garnish with an apple slice. Enjoy!
