I'm All for the Food Revolution

With all the garbage that is on TV it's hard to find shows that are worthwhile. I have been tuning in to "Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution" on ABC. I love it! It's on Friday nights, so I record it and watch it over the weekend. Jamie's goal is to change the way Americans eat. No one can deny that our country is getting unhealthier and heavier every year. Obviously our lifestyle and food choices are the reason. This show is about following Jamie on his quest to enlighten and teach our country about eating right, how it can be affordable and easy.

I think his cause is really awesome, and I have loved watching him try to change the hearts and minds of so many unhealthy people. It is shocking how many people don't know how to eat healthy or why it's even important. I was so sad when he quizzed the 1st grade--he held up different fruits/vegetables and asked the class to tell him what it was. Not one child knew what a tomato was! Or a potato! Or any of the food he held up. Then , he held up french fries, pizza, etc and they all knew. None of them knew where pizza sauce or french fries come from.

The Food Revolution is about health & happiness--and taking care of our bodies. His focus on public school lunches is probably the one I agree with him most on.

Anyway, if you get a chance give it a watch! Let's support this cause by tuning in!

Be Healthy. Be Happy.
