I can’t believe it is already Wednesday; I wanted to connect sooner about last weeks two hours of Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. I kept a notebook by my side the entire time, as I knew some great things were about to unravel.
I have to say at first I was amazed at how unintelligent people were about their food choices and the damage they were doing to their bodies. I even said so on Facebook and later felt bad about it, as I hadn’t given the town a chance. I hadn’t learned more about the people their. We are all unintelligent in some area, so hopefully the experience will teach them and viewers the importance.
I also get why the town is a bit offended. They feel like, who is this guy coming into town and telling us what to do? But, I am so happy people are getting offended. If that is what it is going to take to get people eating right and moving in our Country, so be it.
I am sure if you are watching, you may be amazed at some of the things. Here’s a list of my most memorable moments from the show:
- The 6 year old children could not name any of the vegetables, yet they had no problem pointing out chicken nuggets, burgers and pizza
- Our USDA system is obviously more broken than most of us would have thought, come on French Fries are a vegetable and so many breads have to be given regardless of nutrient density
- The family that only ate beige and brown. They lived on hot dogs, frozen pizzas, etc… I have to say the Mom was great. She was obviously devastated once the realization hit that she was hurting her children.
- I was probably most amazed to find out kids can watch something gross and once it is coated to look like a nugget the will eat it. Jamie grinded up bone and left over parts in a processor. The kids thought that was nasty; but once Jamie mixed some other stuff in and it looked like a nugget they ate it.
MY Favorite part was when the Dr. told the family, “It’s not going to take Justin to change himself, it will take the whole family”. The child won’t be able to lose weight and get healthier if the home environment stays the same.
Keep watching Fridays on ABC at 8:00 PM, 7:00 CT and if you haven’t signed Jamie’s petition click here.
