This is a lovely alternative to traditional chilli con carne. It’s packed with good stuff so is a great choice for veggies and meat eaters alike. I like to serve it with soured cream, guacamole and either rice or tortilla chips, but it’s totally up to you.

When you get the hang of this recipe, keep things interesting by varying the types of beans you use or swapping the chillies for some hotter varieties, if you like.

Serves 4 – 6

What You’ll Need

  • Potato/vegetable peeler
  • Knife
  • Chopping board
  • Measuring spoons
  • Baking tray
  • Large saucepan
  • Tin opener
  • Sieve
  • Wooden spoon

Getting the kids to cook with simple, whole ingredients is easier than you think. For example, this Rainbow Salad Warp is colorful, seriously tasty and fun for kids to make.

Feel free to substitute other firm fruit and vegetables that are in season where you live. Or if you’d like, forgo the wrap and eat it as a salad instead!

  • Chopping board
  • Weighing scales

Dear Fitbit fans,

We’re really happy to have been given the opportunity to say hello to you guys and tell you a little about our upcoming global day of action, Food Revolution Day, and how Fitbit are supporting.

If you’ve been following Jamie’s work throughout the history of our Food Revolution, you’ll know that teaching kids from an early age how to improve their health – whether that’s through the food they eat, or how active they are – is the first step towards creating healthier habits that stick later in life. We’re big fans of how Fitbit are helping people, and children around the world to become more active and lead healthier lives. It’s a great time to focus energies as we’re heading towards our third global day of action, Food Revolution Day.

Food Revolution Day unifies the work of Jamie’s foundations in the UK, USA and Australia, along with our amazing global communities, to put food education back on everyone’s agendas. It is a global day of change to get kids excited about food, and it’s open to anybody, whether you’re a school, organization or individual. To date, 74 countries have taken part and 1,000 ambassadors are championing our cause worldwide. We’re so happy that Fitbit is spreading the word, getting people involved and delivering such an important message. read more
