I can’t say I’ve ever seen Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution on ABC, but after viewing this clip I’m intrigued. Not just because I like British accents or think men who cook are awesome. Jaimie’s real-life attempt to get elementary school children to identify vegetables is both hilarious and frightening. Really, is this where we are now? Seriously I didn’t think it was this bad. Check it out and you’ll see why.
I signed up for Jamie’s newsletter after watching this video and he sent me an omelette recipe using ingredients like real butter and whole eggs. (Making egg-white omelettes means throwing out the most nutritious part!) Although I don’t know exactly what his food principles are, I’d say that is a good start.
I’m just getting familiar with Jamie Oliver’s message, so I’ll circle back around with more comments as I find the time to watch more of his show. But my initial impression is that what he’s endeavoring to do is honorable, albeit more than daunting. But you can see he has the support of major celebs like Oprah Winfrey and Ryan Seacrest, so he just may have the clout to influence our fast food culture. I doubt recommends changes as drastic as I would, but someone’s gotta start somewhere, you know?
If you haven’t had the opportunity to see his show yet, scroll just a bit further and you can watch episode 4 without even leaving this site.
