Tonight! Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution

Jamie Oliver, chef extraordinaire, is taking on America's unhealthy eating habits. His first stop: Huntington WV. Huntington was named America's Unhealthiest City. But really, it's no different than any other American City.

I watched the preview last Sunday. And it's quite an eye opener and interesting show. Of course, Jamie is being met with alot of resistance, from the elementary school lunch ladies (don't call them that to their face!) to the local radio DJ. My impression from the show is that he is not trying to be mean or scornful about peoples eating habits. He really wants to educate folks about healthy eating and cooking.

I am in the long process of trying to rid my family's diet of junk and processed foods. I'm trying to cook from scratch so that I know what ingredients are in my dinner. It will not happen overnight, but, I really believe in the revolution. I believe the foods we eat everyday are filled with hidden ingredients that can have dangerous effects on our health. We may not see the effects immediately, but we will down the road.

So, I encourage you to watch this show (there's something you don't hear me say often) Set your DVRs, TiVos or whatever else you have to make sure you don't miss this show. It airs on ABC.

Also, Jamie has a petition that he would like to take to the White House after the TV series airs, to show The President and First Lady how many people across the country really care about this and ask for their support. To sign the petition, go here. There is also a button for the petition on my left sidebar.
