Food Revolution

Steve, Clancy and I just got back from a nice 2 1/2 mile walk around Santa Monica and we also did a set of the stairs. I spent all day, other than this walk, being totally lazy- drinking water and green tea and watching movies- Grey Gardens & Australia. Steve and I also started the day watching two episodes of Jamie Oliver's horrifying Food Revolution and the craziest thing happened.

I had just polished off my breakfast of oatmeal, farmer's market fresh strawberries and a titch of maple syrup. Yet on the TV, Jamie Oliver had set out a week's worth of food for a family in West Virginia. It was so gross and before I knew it, I felt nauseous. I told Steve as much and he agreed. But then I threw him the remove and quickly went into the bathroom where I continued to boot twice! It was just really bizarre. Not sure if maybe I got food poisoning from dinner last night (sushi which didn't quite agree with me at the time), or if it really was the nastiness I was seeing people consume.

The show in general had quite the effect on me and Steve. Not that I'm all about processed food, but I'm definitely more for making my own foods after watching that show. I highly recommend watching that show to get a greater understanding of how important it is to instill healthy eating habits in the younger generations- and to take charge of this ourselves by being more in control of what goes into our mouths. Jamie Oliver was on Oprah last week and here's a link to learn more about it.

Happy Sunday!
