As the Food Revolution Ambassadors for Tampa Bay and for Fit Kids everywhere, we will be trying to engage more with you as a community to bring you more ways to get your fit kids involved in eating healthy. Again, remember the Fit Kids motto is “Real Kids. Real Change. Really Simple.” The official Food Revolution blog always has a monthly challenge that is issued to it’s ambassadors and in turn we would love you connect with us and help inspire others too! So join in! Play along! Trying something new is always fun!

As we head into November, they’ve got a new set of challenges for us! Bring on November!

November’s Monthly Challenges

1. Slow Cooking! We live in a fast food world, but this month we’re asking you to slow things down, try out and share your slow cooked food recipes with us. Challenge submitted by ambassador Christina Erickson

2. N is for November, and nectarines, and nutmeg… we want to see your recipes for dishes beginning with the letter N or using ingredients with the letter N. Challenge submitted by ambassador Jackie Rebideau

3. Share your holiday traditions. Holiday season is almost upon and we want to know what your holiday traditions are and what food makes it to the table for your family gatherings. Send us your photos of traditional recipes, foods and the table set for a holiday feast!

Be on the look out via our social channels for prizes to help share your challenges with our audience! We can’t wait to see what’s in store!

What are Monthly Challenges?

Every month, there will be different challenges that inspire Food Revolutionaries to engage with their communities. They are designed to make deeper connections with the thought leaders in the real food industry and connect with family and friends through fresh food.

This is how we work with Food Revolution and how we engage the Tampa Bay community: At the beginning of every month, the challenges will be announced on the official Food Revolution Blog. The idea is to complete as many challenges as you can. As you complete the challenges, let us know how they went. We want to hear your stories, see your pictures and be able to show your successes through our various social media platforms. So get out there, have fun and make sure you share your story with us here in Tampa too – we could be highlighting what you’ve been doing to the world!

Stay connected with us on Twitter at @FoodRevTampa on on Facebook too!
