Sad to Say, But Vegetables Are Revolutionary

on May 2 | in Real Food | by | with 3 Comments

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. :)

  2. i actually happened upon “food revolution” on tv for the first time the other day and was really impressed! in this particular episode he was making strong efforts to change over a whole school district’s lunch menu to fresh, unprocessed foods. he seemed really genuine and told the kids something pretty smart- “if the ingredients on a box look like a science experiment don’t eat it! if they look like your nan’s pantry, it’s probably ok” made me realize the potential challenges we will face in a few years when our kids start going to school! hopefully by then they will be serving healthier foods.

    I tend to avoid celebrity chefs, mostly because I’m contrary and don’t like to be a part of fads. :-) But this guy looks interesting, if he’s encouraging real butter and eggs! I might have to check him out a little more. (And yes, aren’t British accents distracting? :-))
